Coming this Winter

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.
