And the Eighth Album is Called...

Whoa! The studio is going great. I drove back to Andrew's home studio last night to lay a final few tracks. Right now, we have recorded over twenty songs for this CD. I doubt they'll all fit on the CD, so this gives us room to pick the best performances for the final project.

Ye know, one of things that's really got me excited about this current CD is that we are bringing back some of the songs that were lost when we discontinued our first CD, Marked By Great Size, songs like "Happily Ever After" and "A Prudent Thief." Plus, you'll get to hear a lot more of Andrew singing with songs like "Lily the Pink" and "The Orange and The Green." And if all goes well, we might even add in a few special treats that will live up to the Monty Python phrase, "And now for something completely different."

I think we learned a lot on this project. Andrew and I've started to talk about new arrangements of the Scottish songs we'll record on Real Men Wear Kilts CD. September, we'll jump headfirst into that project. So keep an ear open for more Scottish songs when we perform at the Texas Renaissance Festival in October.

Without further delay... a theme has taken over this new CD. And because of that theme we've picked a corresponding CD title. And that is *drum rolls* Fairy Tales from Brobdingnag.

Brobdingnagian Fairy Tales, CD Cover by Ingrid HouwersWe even have a killer new CD cover being designed by Ingrid Houwers and Jen Clower-Brown, combining Celtic knotwork and High Fantasy for a delicious storybook of bardic songs.

Yeah, I'm pretty dang excited. Tonight, I get a rough copy and this weekend, we've a lot of cleanup to do. So I'll try to keep you informed on the album's progress. Ciao!
