Are you excited yet?
We're almost done with the composition stage. Both my mom and I have 1 or 2 more songs to write to complete the album. Later this month we will start recording the songs. December will be mixed with a lot of busy stuff going on, but we're going to try to get everything mixed/mastered and off to the production company back east. We're hoping for a January 2009 release.
So far, my songs are:
"Brahm's Lullaby" (writ. Brahms/arrang. Thomas)
"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" (writ. Mozart/arrang. Thomas)
"Baby of Mine (Preston's Song)" (writ. Thomas)
"The Dream Waltz" (writ. Thomas)
and possibly "Goodnight My Angel" (writ. Billy Joel/arrang. Thomas)
I am still waiting to see how much in royalties I would have to pay to use the B. Joel song.
I still need one more song, as we are each trying to go for 6. My mom is doing a few old Scottish cradle songs, I Am a Child of God, and some originals as well. I'm really excited about this. I think it is definitely going to be a great lullaby album. And it is "Preston Approved". :)
The picture above is going to be our album cover. That painting is one I have seen for years as it has hung at my Grandma's house ever since I can remember. It is from an old 1920's calendar. I think it perfectly fits the mood of our album.
