New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Richard Barone Official Website) Innovative singer/songwriter/producer/author Richard Barone is involved with three projects-two are based on his career and now even-more-relevant-than-ever 1987 album, COOL BLUE HALO, and one is with legendary folk singer-songwriter Pete Seeger.

The DigSin label is releasing the 25th Anniversary Limited Box set of COOL BLUE HALO which features a 2 CD/DVD 2012 Anniversary concert he presented, along with guest performers The Band's Garth Hudson and producer Tony Visconti, plus a documentary (I BELONG TO ME: THE COOL BLUE HALO STORY) on the history of COOL BLUE HALO, a T-shirt, and the original album.

I BELONG TO ME: THE COOL BLUE HALO STORY will be held at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue, in New York City, on December 10th, with a special live performance in the theater.

Initially ROLLING STONE contributor Anthony DeCurtis reviewed COOL BLUE HALO in 1987, and dubbed Richard's music "chamber pop" for it made an interesting use of a cello and percussion as opposed to electric guitar, bass, drums. That 1987 review was one of the first times the term had been used in a critical review. Since then the genre has come into popularity with today's popular artists: The Shins, Fleet Foxes, Antony and the Johnson, Rachel Platten, DeVotchKa, the Decemberists. In reconnecting with Richard's music, Anthony stated, "there is great beauty to this album tht find completely undminished since it first came out... the music is so timeless."

On Election Day, Nov. 6, 2012, Legendary folk singer Pete Seeger released a new single and his first-ever music video "God's Counting On Me, God's Counting On You" (Sloop Mix) filmed and recorded live on the historic Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. The video is available on YouTube; the song will be available at iTunes, and all digital retailers on Tuesday.

Pete Seeger co-wrote "God's Counting On Me" with his long time friend Lorre Wyatt after the BP Oil Crisis in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Richard Barone and Matthew Billy produced the song. Wings drummer Steve Holley and the Roches Terre Roche are among the musicians lending their support on the recording.

At age 93, Pete Seeger has had a broad influence on the development of contemporary folk music in a career that has stretched from before World War II to after the turn of the 21st century. Songs he's written include: "If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," and "Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)," all have became major hits; his words and music have have helped unite causes including building unions, ending wars, supporting the rights of the oppressed, and saving the environment.

Richard Barone is an acclaimed recording artist/performer/producer/author. Since fronting Indie-pop icons The Bongos, Barone has produced countless studio recordings and has collaborated with artists in every genre--from Lou Reed and Moby to Liza Minnelli, Tiny Tim, and of course--most recently--Pete Seeger. As a musical and theatrical director, he has scored shows and staged all-star concert events at such venues as Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. His memoir FRONTMAN: Surviving the Rock Star Myth was published by Hal Leonard Books. He was recently appointed to the Board of Advisors for Anthology Film Archives and as a Professor at New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.
