Update #11

April Update

4 comments

Happy happy April. A new month and new life for us, thanks to you, as funds are dispersed and plans fast in motion. We will be shooting some great interviews in New York the first two weeks of this "new life" month, then will be heading to LA to shoot other exciting and critical stuff. And there's even more news. Further justification for the brief silence. DAT's have been dusted off and other elements found and seen. The audio recordings unearthed bring to life the recording sessions of Living with the Law, intimate and passionate sketches of the songs that would make up the album. Was hard for me to type with my jaw pinned to the floor in amazement, so yet even another delay. I apologize again. Things have been busy in and out of this project. We're finally afforded the luxury of being able to plan some things and do them how they need to be done, and please all rest assured that we're doing them. This has been an incredible and enlightening journey and will continue to be, but we're ready to reach land also, and to bring the findings of that journey to light. Thank you again for your ongoing support and encouragement and passionate posts and stories. We love it all and it drives us. And we love you all too. We can't wait to show you what we're up to and to hopefully meet each and every one of you sometime somewhere. Never hesitate to send a meeting or a greeting or a story you want us to hear. We'll be posting some serious treasures soon, hidden gems from beautiful days. The kind of stuff you seldom hear but always hear about. Be well and talk soon guys.  mb & jm
