well hello there!
Happy first day of Spring!
Hold on while I throw another log on the fire and knock these icicles off my nose...
Ok! I'm back... I've been slowly making progress on this record since the funding and I don't want you all to think I've forgotten about you! Since this is "with friends" as you all know, it depends greatly on the schedule of my friends. I have very busy friends. ;) I'm happy to say I've been pretty busy lately as well, having released a single with Justin Guarini for charity to start off the year, and then tours in the UK and Germany as well as a few SPN conventions. But don't think I haven't also been working on this record! I have indeed. I'd wager to say, if I could have an uninterrupted week with all of my friends in the studio, and then a couple weeks for all the mixing, mastering, printing, etc. I could finish this thing very quickly.
I will however have to break that week in the studio with my friends up into teeny tiny little portions that are spread out over the next couple months. :( I'm happy I have work right now, because it's never a guarantee in this business, and I'm happy my friends do to! It does however make for some logistical hurdles when trying to wrangle them all into a singing booth. ;)
I know, I know, you want some deets. Well you'll just have to wait. obviously you know the invite is going out to the usual suspects, and some newbies, but the final list of who's on it is always dependent on timing. one exciting aspect is I'd really like to throw an original or two on this one, but we'll see what I've got when the track list and guest list takes shape and see if any of my original stuff fits nicely in there.
I know this update was a little scant on the specifics, but I'll say this... you will have this record this year! and there will be songs on it! and there will be friends on it! ...How's bout them apples? ;)
Here's the most important part of this update. You rock. you are the most amazing and supportive fans I could ever hope for.
