About "Tell Me A Story"

Hey friends! This past year has been a wild ride for me - exploring many new avenues of life for the first time had me writing words like crazy; this EP is, quite honestly, a result of being twenty-something and adventuring outward with no fixed direction. YAY!

Last winter I released my first album, "Thank You," with all of your support. I could not be more thankful for that! For "Tell Me A Story," however, there are a lot of other exciting things I want to share with you! 

Exciting news:

1. I will be recording it professionally at Northfire Recording Studio in Amherst, MA and working with an engineer for mixing and mastering! I am so excited to have the best sound I can get for these songs for you all.

2. These songs were all written within the past year. Songs included are "Take Me With You," "2 AM," "Tell Me A Story," "Long Run," and "Make It Right."

3. My close friend, Aydian from Point 5 CC, will be printing up the shirts! Yippee! The two designs (one with a border and one without) will be hand printed by him. While there may be other color options by the time they go to press, these two will definitely be offered:

A special thank you:

To every lovely person who submitted a picture of themselves for this video - you are so vital to my music, I cannot thank you enough!

To my Mom & Dad - thank you for letting me do whatever I want after college and not pressuring me into finding a textbook-definition career. Thank you for not worrying about my future which, in return, allows me to feel free to chase these dreams. Also thank you for the free food you sometimes send me back to Boston with ;)

Final note:

I would not be where I am today without you and I cannot thank you all enough for your support. I'm looking forward to releasing this for you in early 2015! Cheers!

Always,
Skylar Kergil

Risks and challenges

Recording professionally in a studio will have its challenges - but I feel lucky to have the incredible team I'm working with and I have full trust in the way we will move forward to bring these tracks to life!
