'Wordlessly' CD cover

There are hundreds of little details that need to be ironed out when putting together a project like your own CD. One of them is the design of the CD cover.

Here is the front and back of my upcoming instrumental CD, "Wordlessly." With photos and typography by little ol' me.

The songs just keep on comin'

Edging closer and closer to the end of recording...

Three more songs have been recorded:

  • Conner Prairie Air
  • Lilies of the Field (working title)
  • A Girl With Root Beer Eyes
That gets me up to 47 minutes of music. But I still think I have one or two more songs in me for this project.

After that, I am still going to have a lot of work in front of me. The mixing, the burning, the printing ... wow.

In the meantime...

Gig on Friday! And my dear Mary will sing some backing vocals for a few songs, such as "Widow Moon," "Relentless Love" and "His Mercy Endures Forever." Please join us. For more details, visit the engagements page.

Great gig in Angola

I wanted to thank the wonderful folks at Angola United Methodist Church for their hospitality last weekend. The turnout was wonderful, with at least 50 or 60 people in the pews. The best part was that they really sung out their part of "His Mercy Endures Forever." They didn't need much encouraging at all.

Plus, they were kind enough to take a few photos while I performed, plus the sound man recorded the entire gig, and I'll be receiving a CD in the mail pretty soon. Thanks!
