2012 – For the first time since the end of his career at Blue Horizon Records singer-songwriter Bernie Townsend was persuaded to embark on a solo career and he was signed to independent label Gravel Road Records & Music. In turn the Rights were acquired to a previously unreleased album as Gravel Road Records believed that the release of that Work was long overdue, and, in deference to the location of the legendary and long since gone Chipping Norton Recording Studio, Bernie decided to title his first solo album “Made On New Street”.
2014 – During September there began a series of events that launched the career of singer-songwriter Bernie Townsend to the wider mainstream audiences within the United States of America. This was kick-started by the release on You Tube of the acclaimed video of the song “Just Won’t Touch Me Now” featured on the album “Made On New Street” – this song was inspired by the experience of a close friend of Bernie’s on his return from the Vietnam War. The video of “Just Won’t Touch Me Now” has since been the subject of many thousands of views on You Tube and posts and comments on the Vietnam Veterans of America Facebook Page and has been adopted by VVA Chapters across the United States. In the light of the background to the song and the source of its inspiration, Bernie Townsend donated his share of royalties to the Vietnam Veterans of America in perpetuity.
2015 – In April the single “Just Won’t Touch Me Now” was released to US radio and in June 2015, the song peaked at # 17 on the Adult Contemporary ‘NMW’ Top 40 US Radio Chart and at # 34 on the AC ‘NMW’ Hot 100 US Radio Chart and # 7 on the AC ‘NMW’ Western Region US Radio Chart.
2016 – Bernie Townsend was been nominated in the category of “Adult Contemporary Breakthrough Artist of the Year” at the New Music Weekly US Radio Awards in Los Angeles for his US radio hit “Just Won’t Touch Me Now”.
2017 – Bernie Townsend co-produced the US hit singles “Tin Soldiers” and “Damaged” for UK singer-soongwriter Abigail Scott.
2018 – In September the new single “No Good Will Come” by Bernie Townsend was released on worldwide download and has since created a very positive storm of interest and support on the social media platform Twitter.
2019 – In January “No Good Will Come” is released to US radio where Bernie is hopeful there will be a repeat of his 2015 US chart success.
