Soona's Summer Serenade
Ghost Dog here, wishing you the warmest of warm months and a steady supply of sun screen and mosquito and/or politician repellent! When whatever is buzzing bothers, we recommend the salve of music, and here is Kevin Elliott's new album to the rescue!
Here at Soona Songs we like to take our time, and are amazed that Patterns of Blue has broken all our records for time from recording to release! "An album worthy of your attention" - we certainly agree. Watch for the CD release in Champaign-Urbana! Kevin will be back in Jonesborough, TN for our local release concert and his second live performance on Studio One with Dave Carter on September 10.
Up next is Esteemed CEO's third album, tentatively titled Little Blue Car. The tracks are mostly in the can, and some wonderful East Tennessee musicians have rounded out the songs. Looking for an early fall release (note how Ghost Dog is not saying which fall...)
July will bring The Malvinas (Beth Cahill, Gina Forsyth, and Lisa Markley) to the Soona Songs Studio. Only ten years in the planning, we look forward to a wonderful session for a long awaited album. This female power trio will also appear on Studio One while they are here... listen in at 1:00 pm EDT on July 23.
A word from Esteemed CEO:
Don't forget to visit the Soona Songs Store to pick up the back catalog for these artists, and the front catalog too! Thank you.
Soona Snacks - for your free download enjoyment!
- Kevin Elliott's most frightening song from It's a Circus Here, Dolores - "The Clown Factory"
- A tasty treat from The Malvinas' last release, Love, Hope and Transportation - "West Jet Ticket Counter"
- The poppiest song Marilyn Duncan ever wrote, from Old Friends and Lovers - "As Long As We Are Friends"
- And some rock from Radiophonic's I Could Have Been a Rocket Scientist - "Ballad for One"
Meanwhile, we wish you the very best of summers, and thank you for supporting independent music, especially ours!
