A huge thanks to all the people I roped into this project: we did it. 🙂 Robert sent me the final versions of all the masters for “Broken, Perfect” last week, and I uploaded all of them on Soundcloud on Friday. Here’s the link! https://soundcloud.com/samayaformusic/albums
My friend Maira (an amazing graphic designer) designed the cover, and captured the heart of what I was trying to convey incredibly well. Thank you!
I can’t believe it’s done. Strange mixture of emotions, relief (we made it to the finish line), happiness (OMG, I’ve released my second album!!), but also a very real sense of loss (what’s the point of my life now??). A part of me almost feels shell shocked, because we’ve been pounding the pavement so hard for a while to get the album done. I think this is what empty nest syndrome must feel like. 🙂
The next project is our show at Brick and Mortar on August 6th (Sunday). The date is coming up really fast; I feel like this crazy year’s been speeding by.
Wish me luck on everything else to come, and hope you all had an amazing weekend!
Had a blast last night playing at Monroe. Here are some pictures! So grateful to everyone who came out to support us. Thank you!!
Just uploaded a new track on Soundcloud! If you’d like see us live at Monroe, get tickets here: http://aftonshows.com/samaya.
Cycles went through several incarnations, and we had to go back to the drawing board and do everything over for this one. It’s funny how that happens to songs on albums sometimes. 🙂 When I released the first version of the track that Robert and I wrote, we really liked it. We listened to the original version a few months later and couldn’t stand it anymore and realized it was completely different from the album concept.
We’re working hard on the show now and time’s flying by; I can’t believe April’s almost over!
We’re performing live in Monroe on MAY 11! So excited to do another show! Get tickets here: http://aftonshows.com/samaya

Finally, we’re here. 🙂 The last two tracks to finish Broken, Perfect! Burn wasn’t even supposed to happen; it came out of a studio session years ago when a couple of friends and I were just playing around with some sounds. We never finished the track, but I remembered the idea a couple of years later and decided to try a funk spin on it. Robert and I put a few beats together after we finished Impossible, and loved what happened to the track. Here are the two tracks!
