This Girl's in Love ...

 Ne me quite pas - Jacques Brel.( scuse my french ..demo only )

 (Oh my love....john & yoko)

Welcome deer hearts...

i'm about to record a brand new album of personal favourites and songs you've requested and i'd love your help and involvement as i set out on this journey. This is a time for firsts, along with never having made an album of other peoples compositions before or crowd funding but already i can see the benefits as i get far more personally involved with you ( friends,family and fans) and you get to share more than just my music. You get to experience my art work and cooking too ! 

This Girl's in Love... is the title of this new album and my way of paying homage to the great songwriting masters who we have grown up with. I have also raided the vinyl libraries and scoured the internet to uncover any forgotten gems that may have been overlooked and i have to say it was quite a big job diving for pearls and an education as well, baring beautiful surprises. The songs i seem to be gravitating toward are more vocally challenging than i generally pen for myself - i'm having a lot of fun sinking my teeth into them and can't wait for you to hear them.

all in the detail ...

We hope to meet our goal of $25.000 but this will only cover the recording costs, ( the BEST players lined up ) musicians fees, mixing and mastering so please note anything over this target will go toward videos and promotion and a much needed photo-shoot (my yellow swimsuit has faded)!

If you wish to contribute anonymously please contact me personally at gyan@museagency.com

blast off ....

So deer hearts the biggest thanks for coming on board and joining forces to make this happen for it wouldn't without YOU ...so excited to see you at the other end with This Girl's in Love... in our ears and on our turn tables.

Risks and challenges

i can't really foresee any obvious risks except i might die ...but failing that if anything is protracted we will keep you posted and give you updates on the records progress and your rewards.
After receiving this incredible horoscope from Rob Brezsny affirming all of the above i think we'll all be aligning with the stars!

Leo Horoscope for week of May 22, 2014

Have you thought of organizing a crowdfunding campaign to boost your pet project or labor of love? I suggest you get serious about it in the next four weeks. This coming phase of your cycle will be a favorable time to expand your audience, attract new allies, and build a buzz. You will have a sixth sense about how to wield your personal charm to serve your long-term goals. More than usual, your selfish interests will dovetail with the greater good -- perhaps in unexpected ways.
