Kurt Neumann and BoDeans have a new album coming out on June 24, 2022 titled 4 The Last Time. Written, recorded, engineered, mixed and produced by Neumann, the album also features Neumann playing were created with Neumann’s own hands. In turn, it has been close to 40 years since his band formed in Waukesha, Wisconsin in 1986, Neumann remains at the helm of the BoDeans.
Beyond 4 The Last Time, Kurt Neumann wrote music for dozens of episodes of the Netflix series The Ranch. He has also hosted the Staring At The World podcast, as launched in October 2021. All the while, Neumann continues to tour steadily, and the BoDeans live lineup also includes Stefano Intelisano (keyboards, accordion), Brian Ferguson (drums) and James Hertless (bass guitar, vocals).
