Get the new CD, "The Third Time" HERE

WARNING: Listening to this music doesn't require parental approval. It's a bit of clean rebellion. It keeps your outlook up and your hope alive. It's got strong drums and screaming guitars. It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

Friday, April 23, 2004

Well, a lot musical happened in a short time tonight.

First of all, a lady in our ward came over and recorded some kids songs on the keyboard. That was for my sister-in-law, who teaches kindergarten. I'm very glad to have the toughest part of that project done! Now I just have to clean it up, put in the repeats, and burn them to CD!

Then, I had some more time, so I fixed the harmony vocals in "Toy Soldiers". Not too tough, and sounding good. Now, it just needs to be mixed. That will be tricky, because I'm not sure what to use as a reference mix. That song is just soooo... different.

Then, I listened to "Pharisee" again, and I'm not so convince that the vocals need to be recut on that one. If that's the case, I'm probably going to make that one my May release, and make "Soldiers" my June single.

Then, I got more excited about my showcase. I've got a date set for it, June 26. I've started spreading the word to the youth leaders. I've spoken with two possible opening acts, Kent Olmstead (Fast Sundae), and Ron Hill (Laconic Funk). I'm not sure that either one will actually do the gig, but at least I'm making contacts.

And I've set out a tentative setlist:

1 Here in Me
2 Standin' in the Fire
3 He's Out There
4 Toy Soldiers
5 The Sun Shone Through the Windows (acoustic)
6 Beyond Forever (acoustic)
7 Primary Rocks
8 Pharisee
9 The Taker
10 One United Generation
11 A Happier Day
12 Sometimes My Life
13 I Hear the Voices Singing

We'll see how that goes!
