Back to Work - Fall 2014 and Bear Attack!
I want to take this time
to briefly apologize profusely for my lack of contact over the summer. I had an absolutely thrilling time in Los Angeles as a part of a study “abroad” program through my university called Elon in LA. I spent the summer working for two recording studios in the Hollywood area, and taking a class in Entertainment Production, in which I worked on several exciting video and photography projects around Los Angeles. But enough about me!
While I was in Los Angeles,
I had the pleasure of going around the city to its many fine music venues. One such venue was The Viper Room, where I was able to catch Bear Attack in action. After a short conversation and e-mail chain back and forth, I’m happy to announce that they’re allowing me to use their song “Broke” in the Indie A Cappella Project!
I was incredibly lucky in catching their performance. After a night of wandering up and down Sunset Boulevard with a friend, we wandered into the club to catch the last song of the last artist of the night. What song to better suit the occasion! “Broke” is a terrifically fun, upbeat song that will fill nicely with the rest of the songs we have so far, from Jenny Owen Youngs and Diagrams
I still need three songs for the project. To date, I have secured songs from three artists, all of which are fairly uptempo. I'm going back to the drawing board to look for ballads and reach out to their performers while I move forward with the work on the three songs I've mentioned previously. By the end of this fall semester, I plan to have all six songs arranged and recorded so that I have plenty of time for editing and mixing in the Spring, along with fundraising for the forthcoming Kickstarter, coming in January 2015.
Keep your eyes peeled for more news on the project! One of my goals for the semester is to make more regular posts on this public blog to keep the world updated with my progress.
