Mike Rutherford Returns to the Studio For Possible New Solo Project

Nick Davis, Genesis' long time engineer and producer, confirms that Mike Rutherford has returned to the studio to work on material that may become a new solo project of some kind. Not much is known at this time about Mike's work other than the fact that he is working with some new artists. In a separate interview, former Mike & The Mechanics member Paul Carrack eluded to the fact that Mike Rutherford was working on a new project without him. Speculation continues as to whether or not this potential studio work will evolve into a newly revamped Mike & The Mechanics or something entirely different. I suppose only time will tell. More details be posted here when confirmed.

Red 7 Project Featuring Mike Rutherford Scheduled to be Reissued This Month!

Renaissance Records in North America is reissuing the 1985 self-titled album by Red 7 featuring Mike Rutherford in July. Mike's contributions include backing vocals on "The Way" (along with Geoff Callingham and Dale Newman), playing bass and guitars on a few tracks, and producing the album. The project, recorded at Genesis' studio, The Farm, in Surrey, England,  also includes two tracks co-produced by Don Gehman known for his work with bands like REM and Hootie and The Blowfish. The liner notes even offer a nice explanation of how Mike got involved in the project. Of course, Mike and The Mechanics fans should also note that Red 7's Gene Stashuk sang lead vocals along with Paul Young and Paul Carrack on the first self-titled Mike and the Mechanics album in 1985. The pre-order information should be available shortly.
