Soona's Summer Solstice Song

Ghost Dog here, hoping our friends in the Northern Hemisphere are enjoying the extra sunshine as the inevitable turn to the south commences.

A lazy summer is highly recommended, but we are not having one of those here at Soona Songs. While Esteemed CEO continues with promotion of The Malvinas' God Bless the Grass, man-of-many-talents Graham Duncan has finalized her new album, Little Blue Car, and now that is off of his plate, will begin finalization of Markley & Balmer - Standards & Covers.

We have The Malvinas on tour! Esteemed CEO, aka Marilyn Duncan, playing Jonesborough, TN Music on the Square, and new Soona Snacks!

First a word from Esteemed CEO:

Beat the heat with a cool CD, check out the Soona Store for discs, and if you prefer downloads, we have them in all genres, mostly. Thank you.

Well much to our joy and happiness, The Malvinas new album, God Bless the Grass, is topping the Folk DJ charts! This just in time for their upcoming summer tour to the greater Chicago area in July. Catch them if you can!

Coming Soon

Little Blue Car, Marilyn Duncan

This is Marilyn Duncan's third release for Soona Songs, only eleven years in the making! The first CD release concert will be on Friday, July 7, 2017, at Music on the Square, Jonesborough, TN. Marilyn will be joined by Graham Duncan on harmonies and guitar, Glenn Diamond on upright bass, and fellow Sanders Sister, Laura Power will throw on some harmonies too.

Markley & Balmer's long-awaited jazz release will be arriving later this summer. Watch this space!

Soona Snacks for your summer enjoyment:

  • From Radiophonic's first release I Could Have Been a Rocket Scientist, a song of rockin' adolescent angst - "FTW"

  • From Bruce Balmer's release Get Outta Park, a song for the season of travel - "Take a Slow Train"

  • And from Lisa Markley's The Sky is Blue and Sometimes Cries - "Lullaby of the Wandering Moon"

Ghost Dog wishes you all a very pleasant season, and thanks you for supporting independent music, especially ours!
