Greetings from all of us here at Oh So headquarters to all of you,
just before the close of 2012, i posted to say that the writing process for the second full length Oh So album was complete. as an update, we are in the full swing of the album’s pre-production phase, and i think that i can speak for the entire Oh So family when i say that we are all quite excited with the way that the album is evolving and can’t wait to start sharing it with all of our friends and fans. to that end i am hoping to launch a crowdfunding opportunity for the album whereby all of you in the four three four (both near and far) can help us achieve our goals for the album’s production, release, and subsequent promotion, and in return receive exclusive content.
while all of these details are still pending, i wanted to offer a preview of where things are going.
on February 2nd, Bruce and i had the opportunity to perform in an acoustic setting; something we have been wanting to do for a very long time. the occasion was an open house at The Faktori, a new venue for art and community projects in our home-away-from-home of Staunton, VA. rather than pull from the songs that dominated our set list last year, we decided to play a set of almost entirely new album songs. two of them had never been played live before.
over the next couple of weeks we’ll be posting video from that night on our YouTube profile. the first installment is one of the songs we debuted that night, “tell me the water is air.”
since today is a special day, you can also listen to an audio version of the performance on our soundcloud page:
speaking of soundcloud, i have been utilizing my personal soundcloud profile to post “work-in-progess” and pre-production demos for the new album. hearing the demo versions of songs from my favorite bands is something that i have always treasured, and so this is my way of returning the favor. they don’t stay up for long, so if you want to hear them, make sure to follow me there. here is the pre-production demo of “tell me the water is air.”
did i mention that today is a special day? for one day only, today, Wednesday the 13th, 2013, i have made both of these versions of “tell me the water is air” available for download on their respective soundcloud pages. that download option disappears tomorrow morning, so grab them while you can.
happy birthday, charley.
