Mixes are done, photos have been taken, a mastering date has been booked, we are on track for our album release in early 2013! In anticipation of this exciting milestone, we have released a 'bonus song' in partnership with an excellent organization called Nations Cry.
Nations Cry is a humanitarian group that focuses on improving education in the developing world. All proceeds from the song will be donated directly to Nations Cry and will contribute to building schools, training teachers, and improving the quality of education in places like Guatemala, El Salvador, and Sierra Leone.
Thanks to all the generous support from our backers we were able to pay it forward and record this additional song for an amazing cause. For more information head to www.nationscry.com.
We hope you enjoy this first release; We Cry.
BJ and Dawn
We've officially finished all our studio sessions for the new album and are in full mixing mode! We had the great privilege of hosting a phenomenal choir who provided some amazing vocal work on our song "What is the what". The results couldn't have been any more exciting, we were completely blown away! Check out the clip below to see them in action led by Dawn wearing one of her many hats as choir director.
The next few weeks will entail mixing, nit picking, deliberating over photographs and artwork, and making sure we bring every detail of this music to life. Our engineer/producer Mike Southworth has been hard at work making sure no guitar tone or vocal nuance is left unnoticed, so far things are sounding amazing!
With gratitude and excitement,
BJ & Dawn
