It's September, and I have news. Not BAD news. Not BREAKING news. And certainly not FAKE news. The news I have to share is unequivocally GOOD, deeply SIGNIFICANT, and undeniably REAL, especially to me.
I am so very happy to tell you that my (supremely talented, methodical, patient, and organized) producer JOE IADANZA and I have, at long last, decided upon a list of twelve songs to record for the upcoming album! Since we started with a list of thirty possibilities, choosing this delightful dozen is a giant leap on our journey to the studio!
Joe and I are confident that each of these songs is now technically and emotionally ready to put on party clothes and dance with some of our favorite musicians -- Craig Akin (upright bass) Jagoda (drums and percussion), Paul Silverman (accordion), and Eric Lee (mandolin and fiddle). We know these fine gents will help us dress each tune in its very best, and look forward to working with them in the studio next month!
Will I tell you what songs we've chosen? Nope. Gotta maintain my reputation as a woman of mystery...
Will I tell you what we're calling the album? Nope. But I promise you'll be the first to know as soon as it has a name. And if you want to be among the first to own this mysterious and (currently) nameless new album, you can pre-order by clicking HERE.
ENORMOUS thanks to all those who have pre-ordered so far! Your support helps me pay musicians and engineers and producers and photographers and graphic artists and manufacturers and radio promoters...
If you haven't pre-ordered yet, there's still plenty of time to get on board! Click HERE, then tell two friends to do the same! And tell them to tell two friends, and so on, and so on… you see what I’m getting at here? Once again, here's that pre-order link: http://www.carolannsolebello.com/store
This weekend, I head for the hills of upstate NY with NO FUSS AND FEATHERS, then spend the rest of the month as a solo troubadour. Hope you'll be able to join me for a show sometime soon as I give a few of the new tunes a spin in front of live audiences. Click HERE to find out where you can find me playing and singing this month and beyond.
Here's to more news that is good, significant, and real...
