What's Happening (v. 11) - January 9th
Here's the scoop...
Happy [Belated] New Year folks! It's been a crazy holiday season so I've been slacking on keeping you up to date what's been going on, but no fear, your wait is nearly over...
The Album: HOME
In t-minus 12 days my final trip to Texas for recording phase three is happening. With the three last lead tracks and last minute clean ups, we're excited to say this release might actually drop before baby #3 does!
In the meantime, I've been working on a separate lyrics book to share with you songwriting lovers about the meaning, inspiration and story behind each of the songs on this album. It's definitely a labor of love, so I hope when the album drops you'll consider adding the book as well.
"And what about those music videos," some of you are asking. Well, I'm working on that too. We've got a couple ideas brewing and are hoping to share something with you after this next trip, so sit tight!
Before I forget, the Song of The Year Runner Up Award you see was another exciting news piece. When I submitted the song BEAUTY AIN'T (on the upcoming album), I figured we'd see where it fell in the spectrum of songwriting appreciation nods. Looks like we're on the right track...
Website, FROM THE VAULT and Social Media
WWW.TERAJOHNSON.COM - We're going to be adding some new merch coming closer to the album release - the lyrics book, magnets, stickers and of course the album. I might even get around to putting a t-shirt together if I can snag a moment or two to work on it. As always, we have LOVE YOUR LIFE, LIFE IS SIMPLE and HAPPINESS IS magnets andBORN AGAIN MUSICIAN stickers, so help yourself!
And as always, social media needs your help! (YOUTUBE.COM, @TeraJTweets and Facebook)
FROM THE VAULT - I TALK TO ANGELS was a Black Crows cover of their classic SHE TALKS TO ANGELS but from the point of view of the troubled woman herself. It's slower and with piano instead of guitar, but I must say, it took a lot to keep from adding it to the album...Enjoy!
While we're all awaiting the dates for the mini-tour during the release of this album, there's clearly a seemingly mini-tour in progress, check out where I'll be playing next...
