It is fun to sing
if you sing with a Ying.
My Ying can sing
like anything.

I sing high
and my Ying sings low,
and we are not too bad,
you know.

-Dr. Seuss

:) Happy thought for the day.

Some Kind of Different

So, Kyle and I were talking the other day about the next project. We didn't get some of the equipment we wanted to before starting it so we hadn't really done much more than plan it. I guess you can pretty much postpone things indefinitely sometimes. We didn't want to do that.

My brother (who's always been one of my biggest fans as well as my golfing buddy)said the biggest problem he had with "an acoustic prologue" was that it was too short. I agree. At the same time, when we were playing with Soapbox, sometimes it would take up to a year AFTER we'd finished recording just to release an album. We didn't want to do that either.

So, like I was saying, Kyle and I were talking the other day about the next project. We decided it was probably best to start recording it right away. It will be another short project, probably no more than seven tunes; but, definitely a little bit of a longer listen than the prologue. Also this next one's gonna have some interesting instrumentation. Definitely more mandolin and various percussive acoutriments from Kyle; and, basically, whatever is laying around our houses will probably make its' way into the mix. Jess is gonna be singing one of her songs as well, a beautiful tune called The One I Love. I'm really looking forward to making it and I hope ya'll will enjoy the listening as much as we do the making. Peace, hope and love-

Revolution Wines

Thanks to all of those that made it out to our show at Revolution Wines last Saturday. Those there enjoyed some great wine, baked potatoes, the artwork of Jennifer Cimaglio, great music, and of course great companionship. Personally, I had a great time at the concert. It was great to get back on the stage and to be playing with The Art of Whimsy again. As well, it was good to see some close family and friends, and to hang out with them.

We look forward to playing at Revolution Wines again in the near future. I would recommend coming out the next time we have a show; a good time was had by all.
