Dear Friends, I usually send Fun Alerts on Mondays, but since we are snowed in, I was thinking you might be snowed in, too, and maybe a Fun Alert would help to pass away this long winter's night.
Item#1: The recording of The Love of a Lifetime is now finished! After our fans unanimously voted that our song needed strings, we called up Jonathan Yudkin in Nashville, and he wrote & played & recorded about 10 string parts for the song. It is so nice to know super-geniuses. Handy. The result is pretty spectacular. We hope you like it. You can buy the MP3 on our website, if you are so inclined. Here is the youtube link to Dave's lovely video of the finished song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP37acv9lRo.
Item#2: We released another video earlier this week of one of Dave's loveliest songs, Two Different Worlds. He wrote this song about the day he fell in love with me (I was already in love with him). As you may know, three weeks after I fell in love with Dave, he left to sing on a cruise ship for 6 months. I had been alone A LONG TIME, so the prospect of another 6 months alone was pretty horrible. In order to "date" him, I had to take cruises, which to some people doesn't sound like such a bad thing, unless you are a person not fond of water, like me, then it's not so ideal. The first cruise I went on, in order to date Dave, was around the Mediterranean: Rome, Naples, the Greek Islands, Istanbul, Turkey- even non-water-lovers have to admit this is spectacular. Dave had a wonderful boss at the time who was a sucker for romance, and he gave Dave several days off while I was there, very unusual in the cruise industry, and we got to spend one of those days on the Isle of Capri, one of the most romantic places on earth, and we had about the most magical day anyone has ever had on this planet. Dave wrote a song about that day, and it is about as romantic and beautiful as a song can be. The song is on the Togther CD. The footage on the video was shot by Dave on this day, this day in Capri when he fell in love, a day when neither of us ever dreamed we would get married and create this life and music together. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUyQN9hX4nQ
Item#3: When Are We Singing??? This coming Friday, February 27, we will be singing our little hearts out at one of our favorite new places, The Ship Inn, smack in between Malvern and Exton on Rt. 30. Great folks here, they love music and fun, really great feel. Lovely food, good drinks, great atmosphere. We would love for you to join us. As always, if you are coming alone and would like companionship, let me know, and we will find you friends to sit with. 7-10pm www.shipinn.net
GREAT NEWS, we will be back at our neighborhood hub, Ludwig's Inn, on Friday, March 6th. Really looking forward to that. They are still on the fence there, as to whether they should have live music or not, so if we have lots of people and fun that night, we will get to keep playing there and having more fun! www.ludwigsoysterbar.com
For our more northerly friends, we are going to be singing at The Other Farm Brewing Company in Boyer town on Saturday, March 14th. This is a fun co-bill with friends: Blue Moon and The Barn Swallows. It will be a night of beautiful, unique, original music, with great homemade beer and cider. We will be doing an all original show that night. www.theotherfarmbrewingcompany.com
Hope you are warm enough and dry enough and all tucked in, by blankets or love and preferably both.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
