Hey everybody, how are you all? It’s already July, and the year seems to have gone by in a second. Quite unbelievable, but all’s well, and finally some time to post some news here. On the road full time for nearly 2 years, with tours through Australia and Europe each year, things are well, and here we are, back in Europe for a 6th tour. When I try and put everything that happens whilst on the road into words, the ups and downs, the challenges and the achievements, it’s difficult. It’s more about landmark events, created over time, the bigger picture.
AND SO WE HAVE NEW MUSIC – ‘Stilts on the Water’
Released in Feb 2018, a concept record, this is music to fall asleep to and wake up rejuvenated. We had a positive response from everyone who purchased a copy, and from Australian radio stations. And it’s out folks!!!!!!!! You can get a copy here from our shop page, or from online mediums – iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Bandcamp, the list goes on…..plus you can get a copy directly from us at our shows.
AND WE HAVE MORE RECORDING :
With the experience of recording over 10 records as Tailor Birds, but also for other artists over the years, and with some wonderful advice, we now have a system and the ability to record whilst on the road. And this year we’ve not just finished ‘Stilts on the Water’, but also another record, ‘Where will we go to break free from the Crows’. With this system, its’ been amazing to see the work transform into something quite beautiful. Using studios for the initial work, I then set up makeshift studios throughout Australia, whilst then recording the final instruments remotely. And so the one key element that needs to be in place when recording, is that the place we record, is inspirational, and then anything is possible.
My huge thanks to Anji, a great friend of ours, for opening her home, and giving us the space to record the majority of the key string parts. We could not have made the latest record, ‘Where will we go to break free from the Crows’, without this beautiful space.
And so, we leave you with all good wishes, wherever you are in this beautiful world of ours, Soph.
