I can't wait 'till you all can hear these tunes and songs.
Lots of recording, writing, singing, playing and planning going on around here at the moment! Random explosions of people yelling "I love this!" "I can't choose my favorite song!" and "YES!!" going on.
I can't wait 'till you all can hear these tunes and songs.
This last weekend we made some great strides on the recording of the new album. We are now 8 out of 12 - three quarters of the way done with the album. The songs are changing pace a little bit as they usually do halfway through.
You see, we go about recording and producing an album in quite a different way than most studio musicians. Most musicians have their entire album mapped out and written before they set foot in a studio. We are coming up with the music as we go. This allows us to explore many different moods and feel the album out as we're recording it to see what it needs more or less of. So when we get to the halfway point, as we did a few weeks ago, the album could go in basically any direction, musically. I think we're starting to get a much better glimpse of what the whole picture of the new album is going to be and we LOVE it!! And we think that you will, too.
Stay tuned now for faster updates as we reach the end of the recording process and begin post-production. We should know within a few weeks now about the potential release date and much more exciting stuff that we have planned for the release of the new album!
Again, THANK YOU to all of you who visit our site, follow us on facebook, read our newsletters and support us by spreading our music around the internet or sharing it with your friends. We have the best fans. You are all wonderful! And we can't wait to share this new music with YOU!!
Here is that announcement we've been hinting at for the last week. It is very exciting news - watch the video to find out!
Yes, that's right, we're recording a new album!
In the Fall we released a single (one song - fairy dance jig), but now we are back in the studio in earnest and recording an entire album's worth of new material.
At the moment we're aiming for a Summer 2013 release, followed by a national tour based on the new material, plus all your favorites from Story Girl. To keep up with all the latest news from the studio, go RIGHT HERE!
Hooray! It worked! Fairy Dance Jig is now available for digital download on Amazon Mp3s and iTunes and will soon be coming to many more stores around the web. For now though....
Go get it!
I am very impressed with the people at Amazon and how fast they processed our music to get it to you folks. iTunes is also now up, and it may be available in stores worldwide very soon. So go get yourself a copy and download the new song. It's only $0.99. ;)
I really hope you enjoy the new song and the new video that goes with it. That'll be coming later on this week.
Let us know RIGHT HERE what you think! Post a comment.

What?? What could this picture possibly mean??
A picture of us in the studio.... Willow tuning up her mandolin.... WHAT could we be up to now?
You've come here to find out, and we have a surprise for all of you! It has been a while since we released new music (Story Girl came out almost a year ago!) and we recently decided to head back into the studio and record you a special new song.
The brand new song is called "Fairy Dance Jig." It was written by Willow this Summer (some of you may have heard it at a live show) and the working title was "fairy dance jig" because we thought that was what the song sounded like. I kind of always intended to change the name to something a little less .... well .... girly, but the name just STUCK and I really think it is perfect. We just recorded it and will be releasing it as a single this Tuesday, October 16th. And it will definitely now be called Fairy Dance Jig for the rest of time! lol
You'll be able to download it on iTunes as soon as it is released on Tuesday! For now though, you can listen to a 30-second clip here on our website. The jig is so much fun (a very lively, dance-able jig that also happens to get epic at times!) that we have also filmed a brand new music video to go with it. The video will be released next Saturday, October 20th on our youtube channel and around the web.
Below I give you..... the track artwork and banner photo for the new single. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 16th! We can't wait for you to hear the Fairy Dance Jig!
It's here! The official music video for "It's the Little Things" has been released (finally) and you can watch it now and enjoy. The song was written about the little things in life that make a big difference, and how those are so very important. We decided to make the music video reflect that by showing home videos and video clips when all of us were little, and how the things we did and the people we knew when we were little made such a big difference in who we are today. You can watch the video here:
I hope you enjoy the video! Also, don't forget to check out the new videos page that I finished over the weekend. It has all of the videos I could possibly find of us online all in one place and organized by year and content. So you can watch all those videos RIGHT HERE! :-)
I finally finished the video looking back on all the fun times we had this year. Hope you enjoy!
We did this interview back in November, but I just got them up on youtube. I am having a lot of problems with youtube at the moment, but that's a topic for another blog. ;-) I PROMISE the Little Things video will get up soon, but I have no idea how soon. SO for now, here are the interview videos from KSER 90.7 FM in Everett.
(Check them out, btw, you can listen online or on your radio in the Seattle area, and it is a completely independent radio show so they have neat alternative music selections, including the Celtic Harvest show with Kathy Johnson. That's the one that we appeared on.)
Aaaaand video #3:
We had a great time with this show, it was also pretty neat to take a look at all the Celtic music they have on the shelf - lots of great music in that room! Hope you enjoy the interview - see you next time!
Well, here she is! Story Girl is officially on iTunes. Head on over there and download all the new songs for only $9.99!
Or, you can still buy a real CD (because the artwork is really pretty) on our website right here:
Ok, it's time for the secret to come out! This Summer we have been busy at work recording our new album, Story Girl (released on November 1st!) but we have also been busy with a brand new project - filming music videos. This is the first of six videos that we filmed for songs on the Story Girl album. I hope you like them!
The first video is the official music video for Scarborough Fair, filmed at Ohme Gardens in Wenatchee, WA.
