It’s happening… Sing! is in the process of making our first recording! It’s my first recording too, if you don’t count the live recording of my senior honors project that the Minnesota Composers Forum gave me a grant for. And that was a long time ago.
This, though, it’s really exciting. Especially working with the band. Yes, that’s right we’re leaving our a cappella versions behind on a few of the songs. It’s really fun to have that accompaniment. Easier too, in some ways. I’m so grateful to the musicians who are joining us: Darin Bergsven, Jeremy Craycraft, Mark Glen, and Nancy MacGibbon.
I think you’re gonna like this recording. It will be a four song EP; all my original songs. We’ll be including a brand new song I wrote this spring that I am really liking. It’s a slight departure for us into an almost country-tinged sound. We had a great time working on it this spring, I brought it to the chorus before I had finished the words and the singers had some great thoughts about the content of the last two verses that helped me put those together.
Expect the CD sometime this fall. Don’t worry, we’ll put the word out when the time comes. Wish us luck!
