Collide News & Updates
Okay you super wonderful people…with your help we did it!!!
We are deeply grateful to each and every one of you for wanting to be part of our musical journey!!
To us making music is like our own personal art piece, and each detail and every sound is important. It is our labor of love and requires hundreds and hundreds of hours of time to make something that we are happy enough to let go of.
The fact that we have now made this goal will now help us pay for the album expenses, and tells us that people still do care enough about our music to be supportive, which means everything to us!
Currently, we are just beginning the mixing stage which should take a couple of weeks, after which time we will get the album mastered. We are still working on album artwork, and deciding on a title for the album. Hopefully that will be revealed in one of our next updates =). There are 11 songs, we can tell you that!!
Until next time, we can’t wait to share it with you!
Please continue to help us get the word out there…it’s not over until the album is done and we appreciate all of the support that we can get!! (Until the album is finished, everyone is still able to pledge to see any of our past updates, and get any of the items in our PledgeMusic store, including downloads, T-Shirts, and getting your name or picture on the artwork. )
Okay back to mixing now.

We're excited to announce that we're launching a new PledgeMusic campaign for our new album.
In the coming months, on our PledgeMusic site, we'll be posting news, and exclusive behind the scenes videos of what goes into finish the album. On the site, you can pledge to see all of that, and receive a download of the album when it is finished. Of course there are lots of other special items there, so check it out.
We are hoping for a May 2017 release. We didn't want to say too much about it, until we were a little closer to being finished, but we are in the final stages. We just have to finish vocals and a couple of songs, and then we will be working on artwork and mixing.

I've worked with Sylvia Massy for a number of years, and she included me in the book, "Recording Unhinged".

Here's an image from the Recording Unhinged book, the illustration for the "Engineering" chapter.
Went to a listening party tonight for the new Garbage CD called Strange Little Birds. The album sounded REALLY great and I got to hang out with Shirley!! She was so down to earth and super cool. Among other things, we talked about what it is like to be a female in the music industry. It was a pretty great night for sure!! Thanks to my awesome friend Samuel for letting me tag along and for taking the picture =}. Love, kaRIN
