the COMPANY MEN To Release New Album Titled #throwbackPOP On October 22

AMERICA'S GREATEST MASH-UP GROUP GIVES FANS A BRAND NEW ALBUM OF ORIGINAL POP SONGS WITH A "THROWBACK" FLARE

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- the COMPANY MEN, America's favorite mash-up group featuring four gentlemen who perform timeless hits from the last six decades, "mashed" with current hits of today, will be releasing their new album on October 22, titled #throwbackPOP.  The retro styled group will also embark on a 2014 October-November tour starting at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on October 22, concluding with a performance at The Cutting Room in New York City on November 18.

the COMPANY MEN TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM TITLED #throwbackPOP ON OCTOBER 22

Produced by Justin Avery, the album will be a diversion from their mash-up legacy, featuring all-newly crafted, high energy contemporary pop songs, written by Jacob Luttrell (Jason Derulo, David Guetta, Justin Bieber, Timbaland, Cody Simpson, Nikka Costa, Flo Rida), Christopher Whitacre and Justin Henderson (Chris Brown, Brandy and 50 Cent), Justin Avery, Cameron Nielson, David Bawiec, Steve Connell and the COMPANY MEN. Drawing inspiration from the many styles they've performed live for the past few years on the road, the COMPANY MEN have taken their creativity to the next level with #throwbackPOP which includes the following originals:  "I'm Taking You Home," "Bad Reputation," "Love Again," "Frequency," "Just The Way I Am," "Overload, "Standing Strong," "Nocturnal Hunter," and "Crawling Back."

the COMPANY MEN –  Daniel Tatar ("The Charmer"), Stuart Ambrose ("The Gentleman"), Shawn Perucca ("The Playboy") and Brian Purcell ("The Lover") --  have performed on stages worldwide, and have shared the stage with Colbie Caillat, Natalie Cole, Chaka Khan, Jesse Campbell ("The Voice") and LaToya London ("American Idol").  They have also garnered high acclaim from the legends. Quincy Jones says: "the COMPANY MEN sounded great: they were in tuuuuune....."  "the COMPANY MEN were divine...simply divine," says Natalie Cole; and Sir Sidney Poitier exclaimed "the COMPANY MEN were wonderful!  Keep doing what you're doing!"  Comedian/actor Jason Alexander has also commented, "the COMPANY MEN are a great group of pros who know how to engage a room and a crowd. They had everyone singing, swaying and dancing."

the COMPANY MEN interweave hits from popular artists of yesteryear in multiple genres such as Motown, rock, pop (from the Four Tops to The Police), and today's Top 40 (Katy Perry to Bruno Mars), and their repertoire appeals to all generations.  Daniel, Shawn, Stuart and Brian define classic "gentlemen," taking center stages everywhere - from The Key Club on Sunset Strip and The Triad and Le Poisson Rouge in NYC,  to the 2013 Red Dress Awards at Jazz at Lincoln Center - giving explosive new meaning to terms like "Modern Twist," "Old School Charm" and "Billboard's Greatest Hits."

The four members of the COMPANY MEN first formed in 2011 when they collectively decided to quit their 9-5 jobs and come together as a singing ensemble.  Shawn worked as an entertainer at Disneyland, Daniel juggled website construction while being a stay at home dad, Brian worked for his family's executive search firm, and Stuart was serving in the U.S. Coast Guard.  Putting in long hours to support themselves and their families, the four found themselves discussing their individual dreams and goals and decided to form a unique blend of talent, personality and showmanship that harkens back to an earlier era, while pushing the boundaries of today's current sound.

The group also runs 4 Times Entertainment, LLC, a client, customer and fan centric entity, which serves as the sole production engine behind the group. Within a few months of their meeting, realizing their shared ambitions and conceiving the many facets of the COMPANY MEN, the four entertainers assembled a support team; nailed down their repertoire; came up with a breakdown of corporate responsibilities; created their imaging and branding details; and played their first performance at L.A.'s popular M Bar.  Shortly thereafter, the group secured a residency at the Key Club, the iconic venue on the Sunset Strip, and have since, been requested all over the nation.
