We had a lovely afternoon. Let's see if I can remember what we played.

Daughter of the Red
Calvin's Girl
Critters (Dust Bunny & Pickles made an appearance)
If I Were The Rain
Stream Of Consciousness
Lighthouse
Follow That Road
Widows Garden
Village By The Sea (brand new)
Temple Of The King (Dio/Blackmore)
Corvus (brand new too)

We had a very nice audience. CDs were sold, much laughter and stories were told.

Now we're looking to rearrange the house back to it's normal state, but not tonight.

You can get our CD in digital format on Bandcamp!. You can buy it as the entire album or as individual tracks!

You can also buy the CD and shirts from us on our Merch Page!.
ericcoleman: (ways of wind and water)
Every package has been sent as of half an hour ago. So everyone should have stuff by next week. If you don't see your stuff by next Friday, contact us. If you get wrong stuff, let us know. When you get your stuff, say something! Post here, your page, wherever. We want to know what you think of the CD.

Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your support. Thank you for everything, this music would not exist without you!

And the first batch of CDs have been mailed!
ericcoleman: Cheshire Moon (Cheshire Moon)
The first round of CDs are ready to go to the post office tomorrow. All single CDs going to the US, Canada and the UK will mail tomorrow. The packages with CDs and bonus CDs should go in the next day or so. Everything that has something knitted should ship by the end of the week (but give Lizzie an extra day or so just in case).
ericcoleman: Cheshire Moon (Cheshire Moon)
Ok, here's the deal. We have CDs. Just got them. We don't have everything signed yet, but we're plugging away at it (we have to track everyone down and make them sign over a 100 CDs). We will get them signed and out the door with everything else as soon as possible.

Chicon starts tomorrow. Yes, Ropers will have our CDs. If you are a KS donor and want yours, you will need to track me down before Opening Ceremonies. I will only be there for that and am leaving right after. If you want it signed by everyone, I'm afraid that you'll have to wait, because, as I said, we haven't been able to get everyone to sign all the CDs yet.

I feel kind of a bit of rat for this, I wanted the Kickstarter folks to get their CDs first, but we can't not have the CDs at Worldcon. If they had shown up a week earlier … or a week later.

Also, I don't have the bonus CDs duplicated yet, so if you are owed a bonus CD, I probably won't have it (unless I can get some done today before I leave).

AHHHHHHH.

It's gone

The CD is gone! It is out of my hands! It will ship out in just a bit. So ... because I think we should.

We are going to release one song from the CD into the wild later this week. Which song should it be? The answer that entertains Lizzie and I the most will win something nifty.

CD !!!

Mixing and mastering is done. I have the master disc sitting here on my desk, the artwork disc will be on my desk shortly. Everything gets sent overnight to Oasis today. We may have discs as early as next week.

Done

All tracking on the CD is done. We have rough mixes, Lizzie, Susan and I will listen to them over the next couple of days and go in for the final mix on Sunday. We should have a mastered copy ready to send by Monday.

I cannot begin to say how grateful we are. 106 backers, 13 just today. $3,550, $550 above our original goal. This enables us to do the following.

Pay the producer of the CD, our good friend Isaac.
Get CDs pressed.
Get t-shirts made.
Get a new sound system.
Put money away for a travel fund, to get to some faraway places.

Thank you for believing in us. We'll be out to see you soon.

ONE ... HUNDRED ... BACKERS !!!

We are at $3,369 of a $3,000 goal. Thank you everyone for being so kind. We go back into the studio in a little over a week and finish off vocals and overdubs. The CD will be out September 1st (barring badness).

I want my 100 !!!

Ok, I'm fine with it as is, but 100 would be cool. Only 9 hours to go. We have made it plus a little extra. I intend to thank each of you personally.

Cheshire Moon - Ways of Wind and Water

You can hear demos of many of the songs that will be on the CD here.

We are at $3148 this morning (yeah, we lost a backer)

Everything we make now goes into the travel fund. With the amount taken out by KS, we are just about exactly $3000, which pays for everything that needs to be paid.

We have 91 backers, what I want now is for 9 more people to pledge, so we have an even 100! Yeah, I'm a little obsessive (Lizzie has been making fun of me)

It ends at 9:59pm Central time on Sunday.

We made our goal, but now have a stretch goal. Basically anything past this will start a travel fund, mostly so we can go to Conflikt next January.

I'm also sort of amazed that so few people have gone for the extra disc. This will include the entire album in rough mix and alternate mixes as well as extra tracks that will appear nowhere else. Right now that includes the title track which is a pretty instrumental/vocal piece (there are two versions of that right now), a wildly different version of one song that appears on the album, and probably one song that I will sing (if I have time to get it recorded). I'm sure there will be more as the sessions go on.

Also, no house concert inquiries. That is a little pricey though.

We expect everything to ship toward the end of August, which means Lizzie has some serious knitting to do!

We are 10 days from the end of the Kickstarter and we're just over $500 away. Please take a look and help us out if you haven't already. $20 gets you a signed CD, $35 a signed CD and a disc of bonus tracks and rough mixes. $50 gets you all of the above and something nifty and knitted by Lizzie. $100 gets you all of the above and a knitted Jayne hat and matching fingerless mitts/arm warmers. $400 means we come to your home and play music for you (geographic and scheduling restrictions apply). We do ship overseas, a Cheshire Moon t-shirt can be substituted at the $50 level if that is what you prefer.

We got the last of the basic tracks done last night. We recorded Child Of Stars, If I Were The Rain and Ways Of Wind And Water. We have vocals, overdubs and some glitches to fix still to do. But the hard part is done. We'll be back to it in a couple weeks.
ericcoleman: Cheshire Moon (Cheshire Moon)
We recorded basic tracks for three songs last night, Widows Garden, Follow That Road (Anne Hills) and Family. The latter two were both first takes! Tonight Lizzie and I record Child Of Stars, If I Were The Rain and Caravan. Then basic tracks are done. Then we pick up again in a couple of weeks once we're back and Isaac has the studio moved to a new location and do overdubs.

It's really sounding good. So I'm saying it again. We're halfway there for funding the CD. We need your help. 20 bucks gets you a CD and a DL of all the tracks. 35 bucks gets you that and an extra CD of rough mixes and a couple of unreleased songs and special versions of songs from the CD including the title track, which, with typical brattiness, we have decided will only be on the extras CD (more on that as time goes along). And there are more levels with nifty stuff, including some of Lizzie's knitted wonderfulness.

Also, there is a new level for Kickstarter that includes a t-shirt! Help us out, we still have a long ways to go!
