Album progress

Ok folks it is slowly creeping towards a release.  I'm working on my second album release to follow Within which was released in Sept 2010.  All the recording is done, I've fiddled with some remixes on a couple of things and sorted out an order for the tracks I like.

Last weekend I had a photo soot with my son as I'd had an idea for the cover shot that my daughter had agreed would work.  He has been working on photos from that to create some artwork for it all and I was looking over where he is at with that last night - looking good.

I've also been in touch with someone about an outlet for the CDs.  That looks promising as well.  I'll probably to a CD release at the same time as the MP3 release as well.

Last thing now is to actually arrange the CD pressing - I found a company reasonably close to me I intend to contact them in the next few days and ensure I understand what is needed from us - my son already has worked from their artwork templates so I think we'll be ok there...

I'm also wondering about a launch party somewhere.  I'm not sure on this - the fear of it being just me, the wife and the kids is a bit of a worry.  I ought to just bite the bullet and see what I can get organised I suppose.

  3. Wishing you lots of luck with it! I admire you tremendously - getting out and doing it and making it happen on a practical level as well as musical - you have to be so self-reliant and motivated, so I think you've done the hardest bit. All the best!

  4. Free food will bring in folk...lol. Just kidding. Coffee shops over here in the US have clentele/regulars already, so they would schedule somone who had a new release. Good luck. Even accidental listeners would be okay.

  9. Congratulations and best wishes. If you wanted to make a major impression, you could have an international release party, here, across the pond.

    Well, maybe not.

    Whatever you do, I hope it goes well and that you have fun in the process.
