Lots of News… • 02.22.13
Hi folks. Still kicking out there in cyberspace? I’ve been officially holed up for the past six or so weeks working on songs for my next album, starting to go a little shack whacky. Thought I’d send you all a note to let you know I’m still alive and some fun stuff we have coming up.
NEW ALBUM !
The studio time is booked, the list of songs is getting leaner, and I am frantically trying to write a few more gems to add to the track list. Some songs you will recognize from me playing over the past few months, most are going to be brand new to your ears. On board for this project is producer extraodinare Howie Beck. Howie has worked on albums with some of Canada’s finest talent, including Jason Collett, Barenaked Ladies, Hayden, and Feist. Really looking forward to see what we are going to cook up! Any songs that you guys know from live shows that you think should be included on the album? Get at me on my Facebook Fanpage or Twitter and let me know your thoughts.
NEW SHOWS !
Before we start production on the record, we have some really exciting shows over the next couple months that you should know about. I’ll be in Sydney on February 28th with my Gordie Sampson Songcamp friends for a show at Cape Breton University. In March, I’m showcasing at both East Coast Music Week in Halifax and Canadian Music Week in Toronto before heading to British Columbia for Pacific Contact and a show at the Biltmore in Vancouver on April 6th. Have never played in BC before so I am really looking forward to that trip. All of the finer details are in the Shows section of the website: http://www.carletonstone.com/shows/
NEW SONG !
If you’re interested in hearing a song I co-wrote this past summer at the Songcamp, check out one of my best bud’s Dave Sampson’s CBC Music page. The song, “Last Two Standing” was written by Dave, Gordie Sampson and myself during the first ever ‘Power-Hour’ (you pick an idea or title for a song and you have to finish it within an hour ! ). He’s entered the song in the ongoing CBC Searchlight contest, throw him a vote if you enjoy the song ! http://r3.ca/0YDf
Last thing, if any of you guys are on the super-cool music streaming service Rdio, check out my new profile: (http://www.rdio.com/artist/Carleton_Stone/). You can check out both of my albums, plus we get to creep on what each other are listening to. Sound fun? I thought so too!
That’s all for now! Will check back soon. xx
