From the Heart: A new mix of our progressive rock tune "From the Heart" is in the works. I re-recorded the bass part over the holidays 2012 because I had gotten a fretless bass with the fretless tones I was after. A few things need to be finished on the mix. Hopefully we'll be able to put a finished mix up this spring.
Spring break!: I finally finished the blues tune "Grace n Peace Blues" that I started in August 2012. I had all the parts done except guitar. The changes in the song are challenging, and it was hard getting any time to rehearse the part, but I practiced it as much as possible, then had a recording session in early April 2013 and recorded the guitar. I recorded it with a guitar I got in February 2013, so I didn't even own it in August. I think it was worth waiting because the tone is gorgeous. Listen to "Grace n Peace Blues" on my RWsBluez page.
Waning days of summer: I take classes during the school year. So summer is when I get most done musically. In June, I finished up mixing a prog rock tune I wrote years ago called "As in Art". There is an old pre-production version of it on Eden Concept's soundcloud page. The new version is up on our soundclick page. The rest of the summer was taken up mixing a longer prog rock piece, "House With Two Books". It's up on our soundclick page. I had hoped to record a few ambient pieces, and perhaps some blues, but it's looking like I'll have to squeeze that in between doing homework this fall. I do have drums, bass and organ recorded for two blues tunes, one I wrote, and the other written by our own windjammerchick, wh
I'm a fan of the Flower Kings. I've got a few of their CD's and have had the pleasure of watching them play live. They're a great band with incredible musicianship, keeping the sound of classic prog rock alive.

Hi, it's Michele Lombardo from Milan, Italy. I'm a 33 years old filmaker. After several years (maybe an entire life!) dreaming of directing a movie, in 2009 I decided to produce and direct my first long feature. In feb and march 2010 I shooted the movie. It's a drama, and the story tells about solitude.
I registered in Soundclick looking for some good music for the soundtrack. When I listen "Beauty and the Rain" I understood that was THE music I was looking for!...
I'm a musician too and I had very precise ideas about what kind of music and atmosphere. Your piece is PERFECT!!
I need to talk you, please can you contact me?
