Check-in

Just a quick note to check in…

There are many things happening, some big, some small. Pesky “real life” keeps imposing itself on my creative goals, but while this is hampering my production-schedule for the second CD (a full post on that soon, I promise!), it is also fueling the song-writing fires, which is a reasonable trade.

I am traveling “out of Kingdom” much more frequently, so don’t be surprised to find Emer nic Aidan around a campfire in the East Kingdom or Aethelmarc! I’ve been greatly enjoying getting to know bardic friends new and old, comparing bardic “culture”, and being inspired by the fabulous work people are creating and performing. Here’s to more in the year to come!

I’m having a devil of a time trying to insert a PayPal button to this site. For whatever reason, WordPress.com just doesn’t like the code… (Any techies got any tips?) In the meantime, however, I do have a PayPal method for email-ordering, so if anyone was hoping to purchase a CD copy of “Waves On The Shore” online, at least there’s something! And always remember that my music — both “Waves On The Shore” and other tracks — can be purchased as digital downloads via iBards.org.

So there you have it.  Lots of creating: never enough time for it all, but I’m happy the muse is here!

Track List

I received and email today asking what songs would actually be on the album. I suppose that would be good information to give to people, wouldn’t it? It got me thinking I should perhaps put out the track list here, too!

Waves on the Shore track list:

1) The Bard
2) Come & Be Welcome
3) Foot to Ground
4) Soldier Boy
5) The Poachers’ Song
6) Roll On Up the Hill
7) Warharvest
8) Mourning Dove
9) For Your Honour
10) Arise Young Wolf
11) Northern Virtues
12) Dusk to Dawn/Mead & Wine
13) The Washer at the Ford
14) Waves on the Shore

I think I’ll also put up my lyrics on this site, too. As a “bardic-folk” songwriter, I love hearing other people singing songs I’ve created around their own campfires. I’ll either make a “Lyrics” page, or perhaps devote a blog post to each piece and write a bit about the song’s background as well as the lyrics.

Otherwise, the wait continues. Any day now, Silverbirch should be calling and the disks will be finished!
