Happy October! We just submitted a new Children's song for distribution and it's now in the CDBaby inspection cue!!! It's called 'Me and You,' and we're really excited about it- Soon it will be available everywhere. But not yet. It has to be approved and finalized. When that happens, you'll be the first to know:)
Well, September has been going really fast already- I promised a sneak peek to one of the songs from the upcoming Children's songbook- 'It Goes This Way,' from the first children's album. Here it is: I will have the sheet music for sale online, individually and together, as well as in physical copy book form so that you can play the songs you love, with lyrics, chords and melody. For voice and piano, guitar, etc. The book will also include suggested activities to go with the songs, and really cute pictures:)
Here is the first page to 'Feelings, Feelings, Feelings' :
Summer has just officially started, and already we have so much going on! Three additional public libraries have offered to host us with performances in August. I'm in the process of having my first Children's CD, It Goes This Way, transcribed, and I'm creating a Sheet Music Book version, with lyrics, chords and melody, of our album. Very excited. When it's done, you'll be the first to see the finished product! In fact, stay tuned, and we'll throw in a few sneak peaks as we go) It will contain our popular 'Feelings, Feelings, Feelings' song and so much more!
And Ed is in the process of culling together a new, beautiful piano instrumental CD called AZURE. We'll keep you posted on that! Some of the pieces include cellist Rachel Gawell, who performed in SIX on Broadway, as well as Waitress and Funny Girl. And she's a sweetheart as well:)
Spring of 2023 has been special, with more library performances, and more to come- check our Shows. Our Mother's Day songs have been featured on a popular Mother's Day podcast series, and numerous songs have been added to various Spotify playlists. And we've been collaborating for some time now with percussionist/composer/arranger Kerry Kennard, to create some cool piano/percussion tracks. Pretty soon we'll have six... enough for an EP?
Winter of 2023- Looks promising so far. An ASCAP Plus Cash Award for me in the category of Children's Music, a great review of Ed's beautiful Quiet Mind CD. 3 Songs of ours featured on a Valentines Day Podcast Series. And later in February, we'll be in sunny California, attending the Durango Songwriter's Expo! We'll keep you posted.
Our Fall was composed of a much needed wedding anniversery trip to Hawaii, our first ever!
And we attended the Taxi Music Road Rally-so amazing. Made lots of connections, had one song taken for possible placement. The music industry is complicated, you're always waiting to hear back...
Our Summer was FILLED with doing wonderful performances for the public libraries, to aid in the reinforcement with the summer reading program. We've been in the studio, recording new songs as well:)
Happy Spring! It's been crazy busy, we've both been writing songs, composing- (Our Latest News has more info, new videos are up on the site- feel free to browse through to find out more:)
Happy Thanksgiving, Happy all-the-Winter-Holidays-We've been so busy- the new Children's CD, Make a Happy Face, has been officially released! It is selling briskly on Barnes & Noble. com, Amazon, and everywhere online! It already has a bunch of 5-STAR REVIEWS! Public libraries are starting to purchase copies through our home borough of Queens, NYC, via Midwest Tapes. After the Queens libraries, we will be contacting the other boroughs of NY- Brooklyn, Staten Island, Bronx, then Nassau and Suffolk County, Westchester...We want to make the CD available to as many children as possible:)
We have been in the studio recording new songs, Ed has written some new pieces, and he's back to playing and composing for classical guitar! And acoustic guitar, too:) I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of them were recorded in the not- too -distant future. (You heard it here first!)
And...shhhhh...a new HOLIDAY VIDEO is in progress. You should see that out and about hopefully soon:)
