I would love to record an EP this summer to try and jump-start my little songwriting career. I simply cannot do it without your help.

I would love to record an EP this summer to try and jump-start my little songwriting career. I simply cannot do it without your help. I've been releasing roughly recorded singles on YouTube for two years now, which has been great fun, but its time now to make something professional of them all; something I can use to try and jump start a songwriting career, something we can hand out to record companies, and, at the very least, something we can have to remember these songs by.

Though there are a few other studios we're looking at, the current plan is to record The EP this summer with Graham Cochrane.  We've been in touch with Graham and there's certainly mutual excitement about the possibility of working together. You can check out his work and what he's all about at either of these websites: http://therecordingrevolution.com/  http://mobilestudioplus.com/

Thanks so much for watching the video and hopefully we'll be in touch soon. And lastly, if you liked what you heard or your curiosity was at all aroused DEFINITELY check out these websites to hear more and stay updated:

FURTHER UP. FURTHER IN.

Post-Script - the two other people in the video are Julie Kucks and Jordan Mart, they are simply fantastic folks and deserve most, if not all, of the credit for dreaming up such "floaty" (like a leaf) harmonies. 

Post-Post-Script - and sorry if the background chatter in the video was too loud, maybe we thought it was too loud too, maybe we're obsessed with coffee shop ambiance...who isn't, am I right?   

Post-Post-Post-Script - here's just a few songs that may be featured on the EP:
