World, meet Diesel.

After 25 years in rock n roll, the Artist otherwise known as Mark Lizotte has delivered an album that melds all the varied sides of his musical personality – and reveals a few new ones besides.

World, meet ‘Let it Fly’.

“It’s all of my life’s work so far brought to fruition, in many ways. It’s pretty encompassing,” says Diesel.

Let It Fly’ is Diesel at his timeless best.  An album of twelve new songs, Let It Fly’ is a superb display of the diversity of the multi-instrumentalist’s musicianship working in harmony with his singing, song-writing and production skills.      “Stylistically,” says Diesel, “it’s got the R&B DNA in it that’s very me.”  That Diesel DNA, so familiar for 25 years, has sprouted new strands – new instruments, new friends, new stories, new insights and a glimpse at the next generation.

Let It Fly’ will be released through Liberation on August 9th, 2013.

To introduce the new album, there will be a special series of four only ‘Fans First’ events in July/August. The ‘Fans First’ events will have a strictly limited amount of tickets available for purchase.    The ‘Fans First’ shows are an exclusive opportunity to give Diesel’s loyal audience a chance to experience the new songs in a unique environment prior to release. Diesel will perform these events solo.  Diesel will also participate in a Q & A session with the ‘Fans First’  audience members at each of these events.   A copy of the new album Let It Fly’ with a signed slick will be shipped to patrons of the ‘Fans First’ events as close to the release date (9th Aug) as possible.
