What's Happening (v. 1) - February 29th, 2016
Here's the scoop...
Well, as promised, I'm back on the music scene - gigging like mad, songwriting in my off time and yep, in the process of releasing a new, full length album. This project is already picking up momentum and we've only just begun! I'm going to be sharing updates throughout the process from production through release, but in the meantime, I want YOU to join me on the journey - after all it's not about the destination, is it? So without further ado, here's what's happening:
The Album: HOME
We're presently in the early stages of production. My partner in crime, producer, engineer and co-arranger John Bamber (http://jbrecording.com) is already hot on the scene of setting up our rough tracks - he's in Texas, I'm in Colorado, so thankfully technology and the internet have given us a great base to start from before the final vox (voice) recordings.
While John's been working his magic in the studio, I've started my own expansion in building a base via social media. I've been working on creating a twitter account (@TeraJTweets), revving up my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/terajohnsonmusic) , and already looking into creating videos for my dusty youtube page (nothing to show...yet!). This has definitely been a learning curve, so bear with me.
And for those wondering about the beautiful artwork on this newsletter, my dear friend and artist Rachel Hirning is sharing her talents with what might very well be featured on my album cover! If you're an art lover like me, you'll want to know where to find out about more of her work. Visit http://www.rachelhirningart.com

Believe it or not this has taken off in greater strides than I ever expected! In a matter of days after sharing this project, over 10% of the goal total has been met (some folks preferred to send checks directly, so if you're preferable to that method, please email me and I'll happily send my mailing address). Thank you, thank you for everyone already supporting this quest, but if you haven't already, please check out my GoFundMe page and pass it along to anyone and everyone you think would like to take this ride with me - https://www.gofundme.com/terajohnson
Yes, there will be a mini-tour during the release of this album, but until that happens, check out where I'll be playing next...
