What's Happening (v. 6) - May 27th
Here's the scoop...
There's so much new information - where to begin!
The Album: HOME
After an exciting trip to Austin, Texas this past weekend to record at JBRecording, 3 songs are completely finished - instrumentation, lead and background vocals. And another 4 songs have only a few finishing instrumentation touches to add and are about to be sent to the mixing stages. In other words, we're nearly half way there! We're looking for another trek back to Texas this September to record the remaining vocals, so stay tuned...
As for those covers I was talking about (for promotional purposes - not on the album), we were able to record SHE TALKS TO ANGELS (Black Crows) and HOLD ON (Wilson Phillips) - which we're confident you'll fall in love with these familiar 90's hits all over again. And for diversity sake, some rather darker-versions of THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT, IT'S A SMALL WORLD and HAPPY. All I can say, is get ready for some spooky tunes for the holidays...
And finally, somewhere in this month's busy schedule, Tera got some time for some photo shoots. So check out her Photo Gallery for new pics of Tera at work AND play!

FROM THE VAULT - THE MESSAGE was a song I wrote for a demo project in 2007. Ironically that message is still lurking and in the folds of songs on the upcoming album, so while a slightly different style, the same positive message is about to be on the upcoming album HOME...
THE OTHER SIDE - THE OTHER SIDE is another original song inspired by the passing of a family member. Everyone heals and grieves differently, but this was my way of sending my love to the other side...
Go Fund Tera Johnson
We're slowly plugging along here folks...At 62% of the way to my goal now, I'm itching to figure out some creative ways to get all the way to 100% before July 1st. Any way you can help - whether by pre-buying the album for yourself or a friend, sponsoring the project and getting your/your companies name on the website, music videos or in print on the CD insert, or another great suggestion, I'd certainly be appreciated!
