„The Pledge“

 

Song by Ron Glaser & Chris Fillmore 

 

Die Liebe zu Elvis Presley begleitet beide Ausnahmemusiker bereits seit ihrer frühen Kindheit.

Diese gemeinsame Leidenschaft führte die Künstler im Sommer 2018 erstmalig musikalisch zusammen. Durch diese Begegnung entstand auf Anhieb „The Pledge“ - Eine Hommage an Elvis Presley. „The Pledge“, ein „Versprechen“, das Elvis seinem Cousin Billy Smith gab, wurde nun erstmalig von Ron & Chris zu einem Song verarbeitet.

„The Pledge“ - A Song by Ron Glaser & Chris Fillmore

 

In 1967 Elvis Presley came up with an oath called "The Pledge", dedicated to his cousin Billy Smith. It has now been put to music by two well known and talented musicians, Ron Glaser and Chris Fillmore.

Although Ron Glaser and Chris Fillmore did not grow up together, they both were fascinated and deeply influenced by Elvis Presley since their childhood. This common passion brought the artists together musically for the first time in the summer of 2018. During this encounter, „The Pledge ‐ an homage to Elvis Presley", was  spontaneously created.

 

Ron Glaser ‐ musician/singer, „Winner of the European Elvis Contest 2016" and honorary citizen of Elvis Presley's hometown Tupelo.

Chris Fillmore ‐ musician, guitarist and bandleader of „Meena Cryle & The Chris Fillmore Band". One of their personal highlights is a recording session in Memphis Tennessee with producer and Grammy winner Jim Gaines.
