TESLA guitarist Frank Hannon will release of "From One Place… To Another", a series of albums comprised of cover songs. The first of three albums to be issued in 2018, "From One Place… To Another Vol. 1", will be made available on January 26. The disc features special guest appearances by Paul Jackson (BLACKBERRY SMOKE), Duane Betts (son of Dickey Betts of the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND), Matthew and Gunnar Nelson (sons of Ricky Nelson), Roger Fisher (original HEART guitarist) and many others.

"The songs that I contributed to TESLA, 'What You Give', 'Gettin' Better' and 'Love Song', have always had an acoustic, country or bluesy vibe to them," says Hannon. "I love to sing and my father-in-law Dickey Betts encouraged me to step up to the microphone with guitar in hand. He sang many hits in the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND and 'Blue Sky' is one of my all-time favorites."

You can check out Hannon's version of "Blue Sky" below.

"I recorded the majority of the songs while on tour with TESLA in dressing rooms, hotels, buses and even bathrooms using a handheld recorder," continues Hannon. "I also went to friends' houses to capture performances and traded files over the Internet, bringing home the digital files to mix and embellish in my studio."




Frank will be on the road performing solo on a few dates through the end of the year and announcing additional concerts in 2018.

"I started this project a few years ago and it has evolved substantially with the help of my friends," declares Hannon. "What started as learning a few songs to sing turned into multiple albums of cover songs, tributes and collaborations with many inspirational artists."

Everyone from Lukas Nelson to THE CHURCH to JJ Cale are covered on "Volume 1", with an expansive scope of genres to be covered in the coming releases.

"Each song and album are very different from one another, as are my musical tastes," admits Frank. "From 'Blue Sky' to the most current song on the release, 'Sunrise In Texas', the music and even my voice go 'From One Place... To Another'. Needless to say, that album title has many meanings for me."

I like Frank and Tesla. Have always been surprised that there was never a sit-in with the ABB at some point.

That said - this cover really did nothing for me. Some covers just make me feel that I should just spend the time listening to the original instead. This was one of those for me.

Fantastic except I wish he were going to Carolina instead of California. Still really great version!
