Hey, everybody! I hope that you are all having a great summer. These days have been very meaningful as we get closer and closer to the release of a new album. I have been very busy writing new tracks and coming up with new ideas for future projects and albums. I am so excited that this August, August 26th, our new album titled "Loving" is going to be released to iTunes! For over 2 years, we spent a lot of time recording the tracks and adding drums, bass, and keys to the tracks. The album was recorded in Orono ME and was produced, mixed and mastered by Nikolas Dimoulas, at the Zen Den.
Nik is an incredible artist who has spent many years studying music production at The University of Maine in Orono. Nik is an established singer/songwriter who has a lot of music for sale on the internet as well as music videos and various videos of live performances and original songs. One of my favorite songs that Nik has written is Chicago, which is a bluesy hit in the key of A. Chicago will be available for sale on CD Baby the same day that "Loving" is released and I know you guys are going to love it! Nik's creative sound is similar to that of what you would hear when listening to Sublime and even classic bands such as Green Day or Brand New. A lot of his songs are written with and about love, and it is always a productive and fulfilling experience when we are in the studio. Many thanks go to Nik and his family for helping to make this album a success.
In this post, I want to give you guys an idea of what we are releasing here to iTunes this month. I want to share the track list as well as the album art for the album. When we first started to record this album, I had just gotten home from a 2 year recording spree in New York City. I was blown away by the fact that I had met so many amazing artists, that are pursuing a career in the music industry just like myself. I did not expect to meet THAT many incredible people who all love music and find peace in contributing to the music industry with sensational albums, relaxing sound cloud pages, and music videos for everyone to listen to and share. A lot of this record was recorded with the relaxing realization that a lot of these artists that I had met are working hard to help inspire and are eagerly seeking inspiration themselves. So without further adue, here is the track list!
3.) Addition to Love
4.) Tearing Down The Walls (Matt Pless Cover)
7.) Go Now
8.) Blue Jeans
9.) Road to Redemption
10.) Drowning (Miranda Inzunza Cover)
11.) She Said
13.) They Do
14.) Call it Art (Matt Pless Cover)
Something that I love most about this record is that there are going to be a lot of tracks that didn't make it on the track list, but that will act as almost a Side B. Over the next few weeks, I am going to be posting some of these rare tracks to sites like Bandcamp and YouTube. A few tracks that you guys haven't heard such as "It's Love" and "Blessed" are going to be making there way to a side project we might just end up calling Loving Part 2 that will be available for streaming in a very short amount of time.
Check out the album artwork!
The album artwork was designed by Isaac Wright and I love his artwork. He has helped design many of Nik's album covers as well as the Black Bear Beers as well as the cover of the Yoga Place in Orono. I think the style of art goes well with the album and I love how professionally stamped this album is.
With an album release party booked on August 26th, I am excited to share some tracks that didn't make it on the record. A few tracks that I am excited to release here in just a matter of time will be, Blessed, Hold Me Tight, Sounds of Love, It's Love, and more tracks such as Bunstein, and a few covers that never made it on the record.
Thank you so much for visiting the site. Stay tuned as we will be releasing more tracks as time goes on. This is just the beginning! And it is with many fuzzy feelings that I end by saying, I'm in love with the beginning.
