Cycles: New Track on Soundcloud!

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!

 

Deep Open Space and Beyond

Max sent across a completely revised version of Impossible a few weeks ago, and it sounds amazing. The song has so much depth now, I can’t even begin to describe how much I love it. Every time I listen to it to practice it, I remember exactly why I wrote it and how I felt when I did. I can’t wait to finish it up and set it free on the web. 🙂

I’ve been working on the rest of my new album with my voice teacher producing the tracks. Robert’s really great to work with, and has an incredible scope of musical knowledge. Some of my best moments are in the studio working with producers like him and Max. I am truly lucky.

I’d set a goal of finishing three new songs in my last post, and I’m done with one of the three. I know what the other two will be, which I guess is a step in the right direction. Wish me luck on finishing the rest soon!

Can’t wait to write the next update, super excited and hope I get to share some new music.

Tchau,

Fantasy Realms

An hour just flew by as I doodled out a cover of Little Dragon’s Twice. I have no intention of ever performing it, but I absolutely love the simplicity and beauty of the song. My original plan was to work on tweaking the chords on my latest song, but I couldn’t resist. I’ve created an amazing, fantasy space of my own in my room over the past couple of hours, where I’ve been listening to Max’s latest version of the single we’re working on, practicing Twice, and working on the production of one of the songs I finished writing last week. For the first time in weeks, I’ve finally found a pocket of peace and calm. I’m really grateful for it…it’s been a crazy few months.
