6 years ago yesterday Cheshire Moon played for the first time in front of people, just a couple weeks ahead of our first full length show at Duckon. We played three songs at an open mike that is now long gone.

If I Were The Rain, Out Of The Light and Child Of Stars.

We haven't done any of those songs in ages.We may have to pull a couple of them out for the set with Susan in Chicago!

We bought a new CD display rack. It holds a lot. Two faces of each of the full length CDs, one facing of each of the EPs. And I'm looking at this and thinking ... we've done a lot of music in the last 6 years.

And now we are writing a ridiculous amount of new music. 19 songs this year on our Patreon page. We're several songs into the next CD, Callenwood is coming along nicely. There are songs from this project that will probably never show up anywhere else, they don't fit Cheshire Moon. But we are going to come up with a good album worth of stuff on just random songs alone as well as all the Callenwood songs.

Two brand new albums, two more well on their way. A good amount of live shows coming up. At least one more serious road trip this year. The new songs are coming to life live.

This is the most exciting time of my creative life. I blame Lizzie!

Yep, he's on here too, for those of you who know him.

I am on DW, same name as here. I will, as I have done for months now, post there and have it drift over here.

Something new soon to be available on Patreon!

Someone invited a vampire to the party...

For those of you who didn't think Narrow Way was creepy enough, a gift. For everyone else, brace yourself.

In honor of meeting our kickstarter goal, we are releasing two rough mixes into the wild! One song, two versions: one acoustic, and one with the full band. These are rough mixes and are not yet complete, but as a thank you for helping us make this thing, a present for you!

There is still time to get in on the Kickstarter. We want to record a few extra things, and a bit of extra cash would certainly help that.

Lizzie describes this one as ...

Gargoyles of New Orleans
This is what happens when no sleep + hoodoo lore + song prompt get together in Lizzie's head and have mugwart tea... I give you.... Gargoyles of New Orleans. Johnny Cash as a pagan minstrel. Enjoy!

A dollar a week gets you a brand new song every week on Patreon! Two dollars a week gets you that and a CD of the best songs professionally recorded at the end of the year!

It's going slow. We will hit the halfway point of the campaign on Monday, and haven't hit the halfway point on what we need to make yet. This makes me nervous. Of course, anyone who knows me knows that everything makes me nervous. Being nervous makes me nervous. But I digress ... I was supposed to be talking about our Kickstarter.

We are offering two different CDs, one acoustic, one full band. Downloads and/or CDs. If you get a CD, you will get to download the tracks as soon as they are done, weeks before the CDs get mailed out. We're also offering ringtones, voice mail messages (we get to be Carl Kasell!), your very own Critter verse, and even a song written especially for you!

Please help us make this CD, and please help spread the signal.

The Kickstarter for our third full length album, The Midnight Contingent, is NOW LIVE~!!!

A romp of sinister silliness, guardians and goddesses, and a werebear who has an unusual appetite! Lots of nifty extras, too!

As some of you know, Cheshire Moon has launched a new venture: a Patreon!

What’s going on here? Well, we are part of a project alongside a slew of other deeply talented artists. The project is this: 1 new original song every week for a year. 52 songs in 52 weeks. And we wanted the chance to share it with all of you!

There are 2 levels of participation, lots of other good things besides music coming down the path, and we will continue to add as we go along! Also, since we’re already underway, if you decide to join us you’ll get the first 4 songs of the year as a free thank you!

This will also be a chance for us to debut new music as it is written for other projects. And some of these songs will never be heard anywhere else! Dragon eggs to fireflies to a girl named Tempest, there’s a lot in store!

... all the cool kids are doing it ...

I can also be found on DW under this user name. I generally post there, and it filters through here, then to FB.

We have been listening to the final master of the acoustic version of The Midnight Contingent.

It's done.

Now on to the next part, the full band album. We still have a lot to do before FKO!
ericcoleman: Cheshire Moon (Cheshire Moon)
Listening to the final mix of the demos. A few of the songs are going to change between now and the full band album, but I really like this batch of songs. They sound good too! Donna has done some amazing stuff.
