Lots has been happening with year with many big changes for all of us(!) Earlier in July this year, Siobhan got married in a beautiful ceremony at Normanton Church. Now that we are settled and looking forward to more releases with our next set of songs.
We have recorded three tracks which are in the process of editing and mastering and will have more news on specific release dates over the next few weeks.
More of a music/personal news post from me – This month has been very busy for music exams – I’m over the moon to have have the results back from my bass grade 8 exam – I passed! I’ve now completed all the exams for Drums, Vocals and Bass, something decided I wanted to do a couple of years ago, I’m finishing off (hopefully) with Music Theory Grade 8 in May – I’m still waiting on the results back from grade 5 Music Theory which I took last month, it’s a bit of a longer wait for this one – is that a good sign???
(On a non-music related post…)
I didn’t know what to expect at my first archery tournament… the event wasn’t far by car – but on setting off the weather had turned to a very British heavy rain. Not knowing what to expect I was gutted to see nearly everyone had brought tents to rest in between rounds – and many people had hot thermos flasks and oven hobs as well…I realised I was pretty unprepared-I had even forgotten my brolly. Bit daft.
I passed the next hour feeling like an idiot under my makeshift rain shelter by a tree, trying to keep my bow dry. I was very grateful when fellow archer Lynn and a lovely gent kindly lent me a brolly and a coat!
The competition incorporated a team and an individual event, the team event was composed of a longbow, compound, and recurve archer (me). The Jolly Archers team had a great run – and won it! After that was the individual recurve comp and I came second in the individual. The others in my team all share the trophy but they were really cool and said I could take it home first
Some of the reviews so far on the forthcoming release:
“A real well made song that has an old meeting new twist to it.”
“You are on to something great…”
“Mysterious and unconventional…”
“Two genres (classical and electronic) coming together…”
“A really good mix of classical and pop. The piano and the vocals make it sound really good. The piano gives it the classical feeling and the vocals are calming and entices a person to continue listening to the song.”
“Her voice is so eccentric which I extremely like. The beat of the song is sic. I loved the lyrics because it’s so weird in a good way. I really liked this song especially her style of singing.”
