March 4, 2014
We returned to Forward-Shady Apartments, a supportive housing community for senior citizens, to perform this afternoon. It had been over a year since our last visit and there were some new faces but we immediately recognized Helen. She showed up early so we got to chatting. What a storyteller! She regaled us with tales about growing up in a coal mining town with seven siblings and a few pets, including a dog who liked to drink beer. She gave us enough material for several new songs.
"Goody Shoes" (coming 2014)
In 2012, we celebrated the release of our debut CD of original folk, country and blues. This past fall, we set to work on a new CD project with 12 new songs and a great team of folks helping us. Will Russell, of Electric Wilburland in Ithaca, a genius who has worked with many talented musicians, including Joe Crookston, is mixing and mastering our tracks. Julie Stunden, a wonderful painter, has created original works of art for the front and back of the CD case, based on photographs taken by our friend, Faith Selzer. Replication and packaging will be handled by Oasis Disc Manufacturing.
In addition to funds pledged through a successful Indiegogo campaign, we are grateful for the words of encouragement, enthusiastic applause, and virtual "likes" we have received. All of this has helped to sustain us over the past few months while we've been holed up in the studio. Come March 30, we will share the fruit of our labor: beautiful cardboard cases with CDs tucked away inside. Kind of like the musical equivalent of acorns in the shell : )
We'll have physical copies at our release party (see flyer, below). If you miss that, you can pick one up in Pittsburgh at Acoustic Music Works and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts or online through iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby.
