Apologies all around, it has been quite awhile since our last update but we are happy to announce that as of today everything is in the can! In total, 19 songs, 6 singers, and 8 musicians have been recorded. No surprise this album has taken longer than expected to finish, so while you are waiting, let us fill you in on a few exciting developments!
ALBUM RELEASE DATE!
Although we will be done mixing and mastering the album by the end of June, we have been encouraged by our label and publishers to release the album in the fall. So, the OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE IS TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 11th, 2012! There will be an album release party Monday evening 9/10/12, so mark your calendars (Venue TBA).
We have four happy additions to the Fugitive Songs family. Unfortunately because of scheduling conflicts Will Chase had to bow out of the project, but never fear, two-time Tony nominee GAVIN CREEL has stepped in! Gavin sounds fantastic, and we are thrilled to get him on board, just weeks before he heads off to lead the Book of Mormon National Tour!
During the recording process, we decided to add another female voice to the mix, making the show a six-person ensemble instead of five. Songs got redistributed, new vocal arrangements were written, and we brought the one and only BARRETT WILBERT WEED into the studio. Barrett is a recent graduate of Elon University (Chris’ alma mater), was just in Lysistrata Jones on Broadway and is hands down one of the most exciting up and coming performers in NYC!
Chris also wrote four additional string arrangements for the album, and we were lucky enough to get PETER SACHON (Cello) and DREW MCVETY (Violin) in for a session.
Sorry again, this project has taken longer than expected, but we promise it will be worth the wait! Thanks again for your support!
Hearts, Chris & Nathan
We made it !!
Thanks to everyone SO MUCH for the generous/awesome support. It is so exciting that we'll finally get to record this show!! It is overwhelming & thrilling to us in the best of all possible ways.
The plan is to get recording at the beginning of September, & hopefully have everything tracked & ready to be mixed by October, with a release in November/December.
We'll of course keep everybody posted through Kickstarter, but if you have questions about anything at all in the meantime, email us at
We'll be in touch momentarily about the best way to get rewards to you.
Again, Thanks a million times over for your support. We truly appreciate it!!!
Love two very happy collaborators,
Chris & Nathan
