Through Rain and Snow
Steve and Marty and I are working on several new songs. When we first began working together almost three years ago, It was this beautiful unfolding of new ways of expressing folk, some blues and vintage country. I did work in some of my original tunes in rehearsals, but we primarily focused on rearranging and exploring covers and classics. Through this process we were learning so much about one another's natural forte's, tendencies and quirks while at the same time coming up with some lovely little interpretations. For the new songs, we tend to work in a similar way. I come up with music and lyrics and bring it to the guys in rehearsal. Steve might come up with a lovely riff that integrates beautifully into the body of the song, and Marty makes these complex, subtle, or simple even, decisions that carry us seemingly effortlessly through a tune, shifting and transitioning, kind of like water flowing across smooth river rocks.
We love what we do in rehearsal, in recording and in performance. Each has its own magic. Magic, like just about everything else, comes in the midst of hard work. We so want this new album to encompass the magic and the hard work, the persistence and faith, the doubts, triumphs, and the occasional silliness, all of which has its center in 'Americana Soul'. We plan to use our kickstarter funds to copywright, record, promote and market our new CD. We would like to begin the recording process in October and finish in March of 2012. In addition to promotion and distribution of the CD, We are going to create a Press Package specifically for this purpose, build upon our media representation, that is, through websites, publications, radio play and performances. We want to schedule gigs specifically to record live and then to promote the album. Some of these performances occur in house settings and some in clubs and other venues.
I love to perform because I love the audience. The energy of the audience is filled with tremendous excitement and joy. It bounces back and fourth and produces enough electricity to light up the city of New York. I thrive on this energy and it is reflected in our performance.
The music is;the recording of it, isn't, yet...
We can't fully go through with meeting these goals, until we have the funds.
