Finally, after a year of recording, my first full length Lily Cat Music for Kids album is finished!
Honestly, I think this is the best work I've ever done. I LOVE writing for children. I'm thankful to my old 3rd and 4th grade teacher, Mary Helen Picklesimer, who called me a couple of years ago and insisted that I start writing for children. Frankly, I thought she was crazy when she told me I had to do it. But, as usual, Mary Helen was right. At the time, she was 89 years old and I was 60. After all these years, she is still my teacher! What a wonderful gift she has been in my life!
Last week, I picked up the newly mastered album from the great Randall Merryman in Nashville, Tennessee. Randall, of course, makes everything sound better because he's a great sound man and recording engineer. Thank you, Randall, for making me sound so good.
I'm making a physical CD too. CDs will be available this summer. You will, of course, be able to order CDs from me directly. I'll keep you posted on when they become available.
In the meantime, here, for your listening pleasure, is the Bandcamp link. Listening is always free on Bandcamp.
Also, with Bandcamp, you can purchase digital downloads of both individual tracks or the entire album. That's one of the great things about Bandcamp. There are other things as well. Artists can price their albums (not true on iTunes.) I've priced this album at $7.00 on Bandcamp, a bargain compared to prices on the dominant internet download sites. Purchasing from Bandcamp is such a terrific way to support indie musicians and yes, we REALLY need your support!
Here is my Bandcamp link.
I ask you to please share both Dogwood Daughter and Lily Cat Music for Kids (both me) with others. As a small indie artist, I have not advertising budget and I depend entirely on word of mouth from people like you. Thank you!
Be Well and Good Luck! Martha Maria
