What's Happening (v. 4) - April 4th
Here's the scoop...
There's so much new information - where to begin!
Website, FROM THE VAULT and Social Media
YOUTUBE.COM - In the spirit of all this social media stuff, I've been building my channel and have been adding video content as we go...That said, in order to get my own official address (NOT the million character/number/letter one you see now), I need a minimum of 100 subscribers. Soooo, if you wouldn't mind subscribing, sharing, liking what you see, I'd REALLY appreciate it.
WWW.TERAJOHNSON.COM - My website now has a STORE! That's right, to further build the funding for the album, branding and spread a positive message to all my fans and supporters, I've started creating some uplifting quotes (some original). The first (of soon-to-be-many) 3x5 magnet is called LOVE YOUR LIFE with a great message I try and tell myself each day I'm feeling exceptionally down and worried that this entire project is in vain. Check it out and if you'd like to buy one, of course I'll have it in the mail to you pronto!
FROM THE VAULT - SAVIN' ME was a Nickelback song I covered and recorded back in 2006 with some ol' Berklee professors willing to take some time out for an alum project.
THE OTHER SIDE - 'ROUND MIDNIGHT was obviously not an original but during a jam session one late night in the recording studio, this rendition came together.
The Album: HOME
Now even closer to vocal recording dates, John (http://jbrecording.com) and I completed the final rough track (total 12) for the album. We'll be keeping you posted as to the status of the recordings, however to at least give you some info about those that made the cut on the album I thought I'd share a few of the titles: LONG RIDE, WOMAN & BEAUTY AIN'T...(lyrics will be forth coming closer to the release date - gotta keep you on edge!)
As for details about those covers you've all been waiting to hear about, we'll be working on YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE and IT'S A SMALL WORLD (two of the four you'll soon be able to listen to)...Again, they won't be on the album, but we'll be releasing them on iTunes and steaming up my website, so stay tuned!
Small Business or Corporate Sponsorship
As I mentioned in my last newsletter, Luna Guitars donated a new Trans Black Eclipse acoustic guitar among other exciting promotional gear. I'm a bit stumped what/how to raffle this appropriately, but was hoping for some ideas. Please email me your thoughts!
If you're interested in joining my team of sponsors please email or call me and let's get your company on the bill of thank-you's and cross promotions...make your mark through music - really the sky is the limit but a great tax deduction for a certainly memorable investment nonetheless.
