i just returned home from playing the More Than Folk festival in paris and oh what a true dream 'twas! the beautifully talented musicians and folks i met hold a dear place within my heart already. i am eternally grateful to jordan and seb for making this a reality. <3 to paris! xoxo
the mastering process for isabelle has wings is nearing its finish! and we have 11 new songs for another upcoming album that we are about to begin recording. much love to everyone and happy fireworks day :)
we raised enough money with kickstarter to master and duplicate/replicate the new album! we thank you very kindly and appreciate your support with our entire hearts! the hope is to have the mastering process finished by the end of this month and for the release to be within the next 2-3 months.
Okay, so my dear friends call me a grandma because I have had such resistance to embracing technology. I am a letter writing, tea drinking, rise with the birds type of lady. When Derick Snow (he paints live with Autumn Shade) expressed that I truly need to fall in love (healthily~ remember the quote from kahlil gibran about how love needs space~ “the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”) with what the internet has to offer... the ability to connect to the beautiful people who enjoy and support my music and the opportunities it provides. He said that I need to post music, poetry, photos, reviews, etc. consistently. I gulped at this seemingly gigantic, uncharacteristic~ly, large, request yet in my heart I knew he was right.
So this is my attempt to discover the worlds of youth… however to keep my grandma~ness I am going to write with a morning cup of tea while listening to the birds and I shall most likely be writing to you in my garden.
~ I am going to post a creation or expression of mine at least once a week whether it be my poetry, lyrics, a song, a music video, a video of me flying a kite, a quote, some random silliness, etc. so if you feel inspired visit the page every week for something new...unlike before when I would post every few months.
~ I plan on setting up a Kickstarter/Indiegogo page to raise money for mastering and duplicating the album, a European tour and possibly a book of photography and/or documentary of our travels and adventures! Please check that out soon and help us live our dreams! :)
~ Sometime this year, Autumn Shade will be shooting some music videos with the lovely and talented Ben Ihloff. Most likely we will be climbing trees, twirling in meadows, and having fun! Watch for those!
