Welcome to our labor of love! We are MILEUNDER and I am Jonathan M. Spirk, the Lead singer/ songwriter and creative force of this project. We are three quarters finished with our debut album "Bedtime Stories". This album is Ten songs that we know will change your life and fill you with some of the massive passion we have injected into this music by laying our very hearts and souls bare for you on the stage that is this album.
We want to share the process of wrapping this album with YOU, your friends and family in a way that brings you in to our world and lets you share in our joy of creation.
Our producer, Marshall P. Deasy IV, (aka The Definator) has been signed onto this project since the very beginning. His genius and beyond the state of the art techniques and equipment have brought the highest level of professionalism and creativity to bear on our behalf... He has defined our musical thoughts and dreams into reality.
Marshall says, "Working on MILEUNDER's Bedtime Stories has been one of the most unique and awesome expirences of my life".
We are blessed to be doing all the remaining work at Progressive Enterprises in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania. It is an amazing playpen for musicians that our friends Joe Trojcak(owner) and Mr. Deasy have transformed into a world class music production facility. It is a musicians fantasy of NASA level technology in a warm and open space that is a perfect cocoon for creating our ethereal art.
We have 8 of the 10 songs for the album fully recorded and 2 of those 8 are completely finished . To wrap this album we need to record the 2 final songs and mix and master them all.
Your contributions will take us to our favorite place in the Universe... Further into creative production, Into the studio and onto the stage once again. The place where you can help us make our beautiful dream into real and tangible music on a CD for the world to hear.
We are ecstatic that the artwork for the album is going to be done by Chris Mackie. We have loved his whole body of work and since we approached him about collaborating with us on this project he has been incredibly enthusiastic. When we re-enter the studio to record the final 2 songs we will be bringing Chris with us and having him paint while we record in a synthesis of two forms of art becoming fused and commingled in a smorgasbord of SYNESTHSIA. Please check out his website, we guarantee you will love it!
