After 25 years in rock'n'roll, Diesel 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.

“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.

To introduce ‘Let It Fly’ 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 and are an exclusive opportunity to give Diesel’s loyal audience a chance to experience the new songs in intimate setting. Diesel will be performing solo and there will be a Q&A session with the audience members at each of these events. Plus a copy of the new album ‘Let It Fly’ with a signed slick will be shipped to patrons of the ‘Fans First’ events!
