Snowfall (December Moon) Teaser

And here — finally — is a teaser for “Snowfall,” the fifth and final track off my album Indigo Shades!

The album had a soft release after Christmas, with only 20 copies that all got scooped up by February. Awesome!

These days I’m trying to figure out the most efficient way to get to the next 80 copies, which have left the studio and are now sitting in a box in my parents’ house in Pittsburgh. If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, now is a good time to get in touch with me about buying a copy! Otherwise you may have to wait until I visit the ‘rents in June.

Til then you have your lovely teasers!

 

 

Final Recording is Happening!

My final recording is tentatively planned for May 29th, but definitely happening Memorial Day weekend. The harmonies for “Snowfall” are coming along nicely and the harmonies for “Icarus” are … well, they’re coming along, anyway. Definitely on track to finish in April and then have a month to practice!

You guys I am so excited!

Current 2016 Projects

I’m working on a few long term things right now. None of them are at a shareable point, but here are some things to look forward to…

Projects:

  • The album!  I had to cancel my December session because I severely, severely underestimated how crazy the Christmas season is when you’re travelling. My actual last session will be in May 2016. Look for a summer release date!
    • A 2nd novel length fan fiction! (Because why write novels that people will pay you for … ?) But for serious, this is a project that is very close to my heart. I’ve been working on it on and off for about 12 years and have decided that this is the year I finish what I started!
      • A dance routine! Probably! I’ve never choreographed anything before.  But if I can come up with enough $ for the competition by June, and if I don’t end up looking like a panda falling out of a tree, then I will even share the video with you!

      There you have it, folks!  Of course, in between the big projects look for sporadic performances, covers, and blog posts.

      Til next time!

I’m doing bad at publicizing things but…

… but there is a Christmas Sing-a-long tomorrow led by yours truly! 11:00 am at the Hope Mills Library. Bring your preschoolers, and bring yourselves too because seriously who doesn’t want to sing Christmas songs?

I am also recording on the 23rd! But this may not be my last session because someone spent way too much time writing Star Wars-themed songs for children and not enough time writing harmonies for her album. So we shall see.

I should start a story time section on this blog, because that is where most of my writing is going these days.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

Music and More Music!

Today’s recording session with Audible Images went wonderfully as usual! I had a coughing fit like 3 minutes in (because what fun is a recording session if I’m not somehow sick?!) but Hollis kindly made me some tea, and everything progressed smoothly from there.

One more session to go, and then I’ll have a finished EP!!! *Quietly freaks out*

On November 15th I’ll be playing 30 minutes of music for a live streaming event at the Coffee Scene in Fayetteville. I haven’t practiced in 2 months but I’m sure it will be fine.

You can tune in here at 8pm on Sunday: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/outlawpoet-channel
