Well, the sample songs are up on my site, and I’ve placed one on my MySpace site too. That’s it, it’s out there. This is always a time when I have very mixed feelings – on the one hand I can’t wait for people to hear the songs, because that’s what they are for, to be shared and enjoyed. On the other hand it’s like I’m walking naked into a room full of people, letting them all see me as I really am, not dressed up, just me. The songs are from my soul, they let people in to see the world through my eyes. I would like to invite you to have a look around.
I’m sitting here listening to the finished new CD, The Cauldron Born. I thought I had so much more to do, but after Eala came over here on Friday night and put down her vocal on Willow’s Song, I realised that all I had to do was a couple of my own vocals, and then mix the album. I tend to mix as I go along, so by Sunday night the music was finished. the next job is for Cerri to design the album cover, and she’ll do that over the next couple of weeks. Then we’ll send off the masters around the 12th February, and 10 days later we should have the finished album to send out. I can’t wait. I’m really pleased with it.
It’s a weird feeling, sitting here, typing these words, knowing that it’s done. Having said that, I’ve already found myself planning the next one. It’ll be a selection of my favourite traditional folk songs, ones that have a spiritual edge, or that I just love. At the moment the working title is Lore, but that could change… But hang on! I’ve only just finished this one 🙂
There’s a couple of songs from the CD on my website at www.paganmusic.co.uk, so go and have a listen, I hope you like them!
