I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who stopped by to give us your thoughts and your opinion regarding the album.
It was interesting to hear all of your thoughts. Most younger adults (moms with little ones) voted for the Solo Piano album because they felt it would be more calming at bedtime. However, most older adults (with teenagers or empty-nesters) voted for the orchestral album. And a really good number said they would enjoy both.
We have decided to make a dual album (2 discs in one jewel case) containing both versions. Outside views aside, when we look at what we personally want for this album, we both feel that the two cds belong together as a companionship.
It has nothing to do with the financial aspect, because truth be told we would make more money off of selling the albums seperately. However, in the end, it is not so much about the money but about being true to ourselves as artists and this is simply the way we feel we want the album to be presented. It is so great that we now know that both versions will be accepted in the end.
Thanks for all your wonderful comments and for the vote of confidence regarding our hard work. We will be wrapping up the recording over the next couple of weeks. About half of our songs are mixed/mastered. (I'm the one behind, my mother's songs are almost complete...but I still have some work to do to finish up recording).
You are all wonderful. Thank you.
