Several people have asked when the new CD is coming out and I realized it’s been awhile since I wrote an update about that. Right now a friend of my dad’s is finishing the cover and then it will need to be sent to the company that actually manufactures the CD, so at this point I don’t think we’re going to make our original goal of putting it out this month. I’m going to tentatively say it will be available in October.
If anyone is curious to hear some of the final versions of the songs you can hear them on my myspace: http://www.myspace.com/shawnalenore
Please do let me know what you think of them 🙂 I’ll post another update when we have a more definite release date.
I’ve also been having a lot of trouble with my stomach and my throat lately which means we haven’t been practicing at all. I’m trying a new medicine for acid reflux to see if it helps with my throat because if I can’t sing, well, I can’t promote the CD, and yeah. It’s been stressing me out lately because I know so many people want me to keep singing and I feel as though I’m letting everyone down, especially because there’s no quick fix to this. It’s not a passing cold, but an ongoing uphill battle through fire and ice. But the thing about singing that perhaps non-singers forget is that it’s a physical, full-body activity. You can’t go to the local music shop to get your body fixed if it’s broken. Alas, otherwise I would. In a heartbeat.
