Soona's Spring Serenade
Ghost Dog here hoping the equinox finds you well balanced and ready for the sun's return, at least those of you at the north end of the planet. As we break out the sunscreen, things are bright and busy at Soona Songs. Before the summer solstice, we plan to release the new Radiophonic album, the new Bruce Balmer album and get started on a few others. Esteemed CEO is ready to hang out the recording studio shingle, and we have some new Soona Snacks for you too.
First a word from Esteemed CEO...
The spring gift giving season is upon us! Find just the right gift of music at the Soona Songs Store - one size fits all, calorie and gluten free, yummy for your ears, and artwork your mother will love. Thank you.
Radiophonic's January recording session was all that could be wished, including a really good snow storm that proved these guys are more than equal to the U.S. Mail. Thinking they would just do an EP in their four days together, this talented, geographically challenged group create-a-jammed five additional songs to make an entire album. Audio Engineer and Producer Brian Pinke came on down for the session too. Look for a June digital release!
The Toronto Folk Alliance Conference in February featured our acoustic roster, and a good time was had by all. We distributed a five song demo for Bruce Balmer's new CD and we anxiously await the completed product, due in May.
Ghost Dog is nudging Beth Cahill, Kevin Elliott and Esteemed CEO to get on with their new solo projects, and is plotting to get our Jazz Diva Lisa Markley into the studio again soon (with the Bruce Balmer Orchestra, of course). Lots to do, lots to do...
In addition, anyone wanting to do a project in our new studio needs to contact Esteemed CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss same.
In honor of Spring's return we offer the following Soona Snacks:
- From our ambient improvisational group heliopause's second release, v.ii, the most appropriate "Waiting for the thaw."
- A song to remind us to bring the sunglasses... from Markley & Balmer's debut album, "Polarized."
- And from Radiophonic's album, I Could Have Been A Rocket Scientist, when a young man's fancy turns from home, "Ultralight."
Meanwhile, we here at Soona Songs wish you a wonderful warming up season, and truly hope you keep your tail from under the rocking chair.
