Debut Album Release “Essence”
Well, our first album is finally here! We began recording in July at Strauss Studios and after 6 months our first Cd is ready! What a process that was. I can only imagine the next one must be at least a little bit easier right?
The one great thing about recording in the summer is that you have the sunshine to brighten your day and inspire you to continue to make great music. The lame thing is, you are inside! not outside, enjoying that stunning ball of fire in the sky that you only see three months out of the year. I believe they call it the sun. Perhaps next time we will think of that beforehand.
I spent many hours learning Adobe Illustrator to create the layout of this CD jacket which I think turned out pretty good, but I had a great piece of art to work with. The cover art of the jacket was painted by Seattle artist Ego. He worked with us to create an beautiful and haunting illustration of our title song “Essence”. You must go check out his work, it’s amazing and creepy, thus the name of his website www.charmingcreep.com.
You can buy this album through CD Baby or at our next show.
Price $10.00 plus shipping.
