The former Creedence Clearwater Revival leader and three of his kids remake classic tracks by the band (“Proud Mary,” “Bad Moon Rising”), as well as select covers (“Lean on Me,” “City of New Orleans”). While self-quarantining together the Fogerty Family recreated the cover of Cosmo’s Factory transforming it to Fogerty’s Factory. The family have also taken to their home studio during this isolation to create some music together, The Family Band. “Bringing a little light from our home to yours. We are having a little family fun together during the pandemic. It’s such a great feeling to be making and playin’ music surrounded by love. We all need to celebrate the life we have and remember how precious it is. I love music, I am listening every day. Makes everything feel better for me. Put the records on, pull out the old guitar, turn the radio up.. and dance to the music!” – John Fogerty.

With his new album, Fogerty’s Factory, Fogerty enlisted his children Shane, Tyler and Kelsy to revisit some choice songs from his classic catalogue as well as covers that he always felt a fondness for.  Spawned from a series of weekly videos filmed by his wife Julie on her iPhone while killing time during the pandemic, the idea eventually gelled into an actual album that replicates the cover of the quintessential Creedence albumCosmo’s Factory, right down to its cover design and the typeface text.

“Fogerty’s Factory” finds John Fogerty revisiting Creedence Clearwater Revival classics and other cover songs with an impromptu family band formed during the coronavirus lockdown. Some songs you might recognize from John’s historical career are ‘Proud Mary,’ ‘Fortunate Son,’ ‘Down on the Corner,’ ‘Centerfield,’ and tons more! Although in his 70s, John shows no signs of slowing down, creating new music and continuing to tour the world, so be sure to tune in, subscribe, and keep on the pulse of all things John Fogerty.

Coming to you a day early due to the long weekend, this week Fogerty’s Factory performs Arlo Guthrie’s version of “City Of New Orleans” ( written by Steve Goodman) live from the farm! ‘Good morning, America, how are you?’ Now that is an important question. You all take care of yourselves.

While the Quarantine continues the Fogerty Family – Shane and Tyler (Hearty Har) and Kelsy – will be joining their Dad for some musical fun covering songs from the classic Fogerty collection.
