After an arduous year, the new album is finally finished. Of course, it did not go to the finish line easily. Right as the mastering engineer had the files ready, SOMEONE severed the fiber optic trunk for this area. No internet. No FTP. No master. Unwilling to accept this fate (after all we have been through this year), I shoved my laptop into its case and hunted for an open network. After several failed attempts, I found a WiFi at a local Starbucks. After 2 agonizingly slow hours at about 30 kbps, the masters were safe on my laptop. Off to the plant in the morning and Heaven help us the CDs will be ready mid-April.
I have often been asked which album is my favorite. I have always responded that choosing one would be like favoring one child over another – impossible. But truly I have to say I am extremely happy with this new album. It’s special. I’ll never tire of listening to it and remembering how much fun we had making it happen (against so many odds). Plus for the first time our little girl was part of it. She is only 7 and has such an angelic voice. You’ll be hearing more from her in the future for sure!
We spent a few days in Denver in June at INATS (International New Age Trade Show) and COVR Awards banquet. We really enjoyed hanging out with the folks from Music Design and other musicians. Here is a photo album: PHOTOS

New video – This song and video by 2002 depict the great supernova of July 4, 1054 A.D., the remnants of which became the famous Crab Nebula. What must the civilizations of that time thought and felt when they saw this great star suddenly appear in the sky, visible even in broad daylight for 23 days? This is the video as it appears on the DVD/CD set “A Word in the Wind” by 2002.
