An unsolicited review!

I was at a loss as to what to talk about this week, as work has been keeping me from the keyboards and the DAW (digital audio workstation - the industry term for audio editing software these days), and then I saw this email from Facing North, a neoPagan review site. They have posted a review of Dancing With Hecate, and I couldn't be happier.

I'd like to tell the reviewer that, yes, I will be doing more music, and it probably won't be in CD form. I plan to release individual digital downloads as I complete each song.

Will they all be neoPagan? I can't say at the moment. I have ideas for things, many ideas. But time seems to be eluding me right now.

Anyway, thanks KatSai for the terrific review!

Here's an oldie for you

We've been working really hard to finish our new bedroom, and I haven't had 2 seconds to work on anything musical or artistic this week, so I don't have any new music for you.

However, I will post a link to a live performance of this cover band I was in a couple of years ago. I'm singing a Bessie Smith song, Lost Your Head Blues. Of course, the camcorder decided to cut out right at the start of the last verse, which has the best singing in it.  I have not had any luck with live recordings. Either someone in the band really screws up so badly the entire song is unusable, or, if we ARE playing it well, there is a problem with the recording and we don't get the entire thing.

So, without further ado, here is Lost Your Head Blues
