Hellooooo my darlin Dears:)
I have had the pleasure of working with the band "Sleeping At Last" now for about 4 years. They have not only been a lot of fun to hang out with, cut out paper clouds, eat at classen grill, fall in love with Ryan's amazing mom who is just sweeter than a peach, roam around parks, talk about every aspect of the creative world....but they have been an inspiration.
Not only are they two of the hardest working people in the music world that I have met, they are a constant stream of support. For my last project called "The Perpetual Picnic", Ryan O'Neal from "Sleeping At Last" created a lovely Instrumental track for the soundtrack that plays during the Instillation. It has become a favorite of patrons. It has so far been played in exhibitions in:
*Lovely San Francisco
The last date was San Fran and a older guy asked me kindly if I would play it about 4 times in a row....I was happy to do so:)
Here is the song my loves right here: "From The Ground(Instrumental) Up"
This lovely month, the "December" volume of their "Yearbook" project was released. I was more excited than my donkey Fred seeing a basket of apples and carrots, when I saw that they were releasing a version of "From The Ground Up" with lyrics.
It was and is SO GREAT.....so sweet an wonderful:)
This is also a great opportunity for me to encourage you folks to go and support your independent musicians :) I could go on and on about supporting your artists of crafts and paintings and such...but you could always go ahead and buy a loved one, a subscription to Sleeping At Last's "Yearbook" project. That is the kind of gift that would give your loved one a gift every month!! Very unique and very Lovely:) I have nothing but love for those boys and I adore what they create:)
...as some of you also might know, Ryan did the Forward for the second edition of my poetry book "Harmonicas & Honey" :)
.....That also made my day:)
I am a faithful reader of their fun blog too:)
In other news, we have named that lovely Hen "Kay", because that is what she responded too:)..Congrats Lisa!!!
We shall introduce our next lady next Sunday:)
I wish you all a lovely thursday and friday, & I send my love:)
Cheers, Beards & Banjos
