2007 Singer / Songwriter Awards - April 5, 2007

In order to check that our new stuff is still ok, we submitted our last 2 tracks - 'The Courtneys of Ballantry' and 'Ginny' - to the Internationally renowned Singer / Songwriter Awards. BOTH tracks received an honourable mention, with the following explanation:

Artists with Honourable Mentions are those that the judges could not agree on and, therefore, had to be listened to several times and submitted for multiple listening pools. We award you with an Honourable Mention because, ultimately, your submission was very strong.

We should have won, of course, but it's still nice to be appreciated :-).

Nothing Else Applies - April 4, 2007

Resident is booked again at the end of April to record our first muder mystery epic, 'Nothing else applies'. Remember ... it's your life; turn it round. (I worry about myself sometimes.)

Hopefully, if there's time, we will finally finish 'Ginny', which, despite its current level of incompleteness, is receiving a great deal of positive feedback from those who have heard it.

The Courtneys of Ballantry - February 28, 2007

Here we go 2,3,4 ... for your delectation and delight, pop over to the Music section and listen to the first mix of The Courtneys of Ballantry. Also, you will find a much more soulful version of Ginny - mainly due it being sung by a proper singer for a change.
