Poel has been working closely with A. Yamauchi to put together a group of recordings. Many of them are older materials but some are solo renditions of songs performed with Raanen Bozzio Gene Migaki and Poel. Some songs feature guest appearances by Poel’s friends. There is no set date on when those recordings will be made available for purchase but “Heart,” “This Song,” and “Thinking of You” can be heard on the soundcloud page (click on photo to be taken there).

Meanwhile, Raanen Bozzio Gene Migaki and Poel group has been working on yet more material.

2013 ends and 2014 begins with the streaming release of “Heart,” a song written by Poel and David Hiestand in the L2D days and currently adapted to Bozzio Migaki Poel repertoire.  The current recording is Poel solo version but the song is evolving even today, and BMP is hoping to make it’s version available soon.
