Welcome

Faster Than Light is a pop-rock band based out of Rockland County, NY. FTL is the brainchild of guitarist/songwriter Keith Lenn, a mainstay in the Rockland music scene for over 30 years. Fronted by Ken Reedy, and with long-time drummer Doug Maresca, workhorse bassist David Greenberg, and Rockland guitar legend Ron Roberto, FTL puts together a brand of pop-rock not heard since the early 1990s. Fans liken FTL's sound to that of the Gin Blossoms, the Lemonheads, and Pearl Jam.

2020! 

We all got together at a party and took a photo - first one in a long while. And then we practiced a few weeks later... in 2020! Hoping for some good things to happen with the band! Stay tuned!

KEITH ON THE DAD ROCK SHOW!  

On Sunday night, 09-15-19, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Joe D'Urso and joining him as the special guest for his Dad Rock Radio Show on www.HudsonRiverRadio.com - I actually ran into him and his family earlier that day at a sporting goods store, and we looked at each other quite queerily, both thinking we were that other person that would be in the studio later in the evening. It was possibly the most fun I ever had doing a radio spot - I was there for two and a half hours and it could had gone on for another two and a half hours had it not been for the late hour! 

You will really enjoy this interview! The link is right here --> Dad Rock Interview with Keith Lenn and Joe D'Urso

Wow... 

Wow! Has it really been a year? Truthfully, Faster Than Light has been an on-again, off-again thing... I mean, there's always FTL stuff going on in the background...

Tonight I will be on Joe D'Urso's Dad Rock Radio Show - you can listen to it at www.HudsonRiverRadio.com from 10:00 pm to midnight - I will be talking all things FTL and LOF... chatting about music... a fun two hours of entertainment. I hope you can join us! Video is available as well - just find Hudson River Radio on Facebook and watch along!

--- See you soon --- Keith

It's been a while... 

Yep! It's been a while... I'm not yet ready to put a time limit on this project and there are some potentially exciting things happening for 2019. I won't get into details, but there are a ton of new songs that even Jessica would be proud of! You know, if she even existed... or does she? Stay tuned because I really want to get FTL back into the swing of things... ---Keith

Amazing News! 

The picture tells the story! FTL is honored and humbled to have hot number 9 on Australia's Banks Radio Network top 15 for the week of July 3rd! It's so amazing and a huge shout out belongs to Isaac Banks for promoting indie rock artists like FTL! 

Greetings from Keith... 

It has been a very long while since I've posted here about Faster Than Light, so here goes... In all honesty, there is not a lot going on right now with the band. It's frustrating, to say the least, but it has afforded me the opportunity to write music and lyrics and to gather and organize my thoughts regarding a possible follow-up CD. The first CD was done right, but the next one needs to be stepped up a bit. The new songs I have... I want to say they are great, but I want to be humble about them as well... many of the songs were written at around the same time the songs on NWSF were written - mid 90s... but there are new songs which are provocative, dangerous, sexy, and powerful... picture the world's strongest man on ice... if that makes any sense... Stay tuned... I hope to sneak into the studio during late summer if for no other reason than to just reacclimate and set the compass point in some unknown direction... ---Keith

2018... 

It's been far too long since I posted anything on the FTL page. I know it is February already, but Happy Holidays, New Year... whatever it is you feel like celebrating! I know that FTL has been suspiciously quiet, especially with the release of our debut CD "Now We're Speaking French" not even being out a year now... Thank you to everyone who has purchased the physical CD, downloaded the CD or tracks, or streamed our music. Even though we have been damn near invisible, everyone in the band is talking... we are all friends first... and we promise something will be happening in 2018! Just gotta' be patient. And yes, we expect to have some new music - I've already written most of the next CD - maybe 2019? Fingers crossed! ---Keith

RON ROBERTO - NEW FTL GUITARIST! 

Keith here! Proud to announce that Ron Roberto has joined the Faster Than Light family as our new guitarist! He'll handle lead work on the cover tunes and also on some of the dual-guitar stuff from the CD. Ron needs no introduction - he's played guitar for Wreckoning, SRO, and now he adds FTL to the list! He's also in my band (and Doug, FTL's drummer) No Apologies! Ron - damn glad to have you aboard! Pictures and stuff soon!

Now We're Speaking French...! 

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has ordered "Now We're Speaking French..." or downloaded a track, listened on Spotify or Apple Music or Amazon... YouTube... I am blown away by the positive feedback I have been receiving from everyone! If you haven't already ordered a physical copy of the CD or downloaded it, then there is no better time than the present! You can order it right here on the website via our store, but if you are outside of the United States, due to high shipping rates, your best bet is probably to download from one of the many digital providers carrying our CD! If you are one of the many people who received a free copy from the band, and you enjoyed the CD, I am super-pleased and ask that you consider purchasing a copy for a friend. If we can sell 1000 copies in total, we can be fully funded to record and mass produce the next disc! But again, everyone in the band appreciates all of you guys and gals giving our music a listen! We plan on playing some shows later in the year, so stay tuned to this page for news!
