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!
