We have been hard at work recording our new CD now that everyone is mostly healed up and ready to (FINALLY!) play some music. We hope to be done with our disc in early spring. I know it has been a looooong time coming but we promise it will be worth the wait.
The drums and bass tracks are “in the can” (that means done). 90% of the guitar tracks are done. We are getting ready to go in the studio for Violin & Vocal tracks next. After that we have more studio sessions for miscellaneous goodies and a few things that I can’t tell you. You will just have to hear for your self. But I can say that I am getting more and more excited about this and how it is capturing our sound and energy!
We are currently shooting for an April release party…
We are working against the grain still to try and achieve what you all helped us start. We are still in the process of recording and will be for a little while longer. Here’s why:
I am battling against a developed carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists. It all started around August 20th – after a week of six gigs, recording sessions and rehearsals I awoke to find my hands asleep and would not wake up.
In the last month and a half I have cancelled all but one gig and have stopped playing to let my hands rest. I have been laying low and seeking all possible treatments and therapies available to me. My hands are feeling better and I have agreed to playing a few shows in October to test the waters and see how well my hands have healed up.
What that means is that while we haven’t stopped production on the album we are lagging because much of the work that needs to be done awaits final guitar tracks before moving forward.
We’re like the band that almost could! Between Hilary’s voice issues and my hand issues we are a crippled bunch!
But never fear, we will overcome and deliver (eventually) a CD that was worth the wait! We are going to channel all of our emotions into this recording and we will be able to produce something we are all very proud of.
We made our Kickstarter goal! We are so grateful to all of our backers. Thank you all soooo much!
Hilary is going to a ‘Vocologist’ and this professional is getting Hilary’s voice back on track. She should be ready to perform in another month or so! We are all very excited that she is on track to get healed up!
We have been ensuring that our new disc is done right. The wait will be worth it. Sometime late this year it will be ready for you!
If you’re in town on a thursday night, come down to Creekside Brewery from 10pm to midnight.
Every thursday night is (most of the Tipsy Gypsies) playing gypsy jazz. You never know who’s gonna be there. Last time Hilary sang some songs. Before that Molly from the Red Skunk came and sang some songs. It’s always good times.
