Looking forward to recording again!
Indigo Sky was a collaboration with Turkish composer Serhat Arslan. The new album will be a collaboration with Daniel Wright, lead singer for the band Radio Skies. We’ve been working on demos at a studio in Ojai, CA, and hope to start recording this Fall with sound engineer/producer Manuel Jimenez and other amazing musicians. More details coming soon.
Our song Alnilam now has over 21K plays on this page! Many thanks Soundcloud listeners for all the love and support.
SAILING LA VAGABONDE
Two of our songs have been featured recently in 4 episodes of a cool YouTube series about an Australian couple who sail around the world. Elayna and Riley started sailing three years ago, with no previous experience, on an old sailboat called Sailing La Vagabonde. Elayna documented their adventures for friends and family, and her homemade videos started attracting followers. These days they sail on a brand new catamaran and have over 532K subscribers on YouTube.
Lilac was used in episodes #135 and #150 and Alnilam in episodes #148, #151, and #170. Sailing La Vagabonde also added both songs to their Spotify and Soundcloud playlists, and wrote a great review of ALNILAM on their music blog. Thanks SLV!
The last few months I’ve been acting in two plays at the Santa Monica Playhouse:
In The Daughters of Indra, I played “Elena” and sang an original song called Fearless, known in the play as Elena’s Song, with music by composer Nathan Boler. I uploaded a couple of short clips on ALNILAM’s YouTube channel of the moments when I sang it to my brother, a game show host who sometimes wears a Guy Fawkes mask.
In 50 Shades of Perfection, I played “Elena,” this time a Malibu socialite at her best friend’s surprise birthday party, a fun but challenging role for me. This play was mostly funny, all three shows were full or sold out.
Due to it’s popularity, it will be included in the Binge Free Festival, A free theater festival held every year in October, at the Santa Monica Playhouse. The show will be October 28th at 6:30 PM and it is free! Reservations needed.
I really enjoyed painting the cover for Indigo Sky and making the collagraph print on the back cover. These days I’m working on a small oil painting that hopefully will become the new cover.
My friend Scott Seibel did all the graphic design. He also added the 3 stars of Orion’s Belt and the dandelion flowers.
Looks like I’ll be busy for some time, but I will definitely want to sing the new songs after they are done.
