Howdy-doody, folks!! Last night, Bryant Didier, the Southern Time Band’s bassist/producer, recorded and mapped out the 8 songs of the album-to-be ‘Lost in Love No More.’
This recording will serve as a template for the other members of the Southern Time Band to start getting ideas about what they might contribute to the songs. If funding one way or another comes in, the band will commence its first workshop of the songs in August. As well, we want to record two demo songs from the album by the end of the month.
Our Plan of Action
We will continue to rehearse weekly in September until our backup singer Justin Anantawan (who is currently away) rejoins us for another workshop around the start of October. We want to prepare the songs for performances which will begin mid-October. Our goal is to start recording the album starting in January 2020. I am currently awaiting word from the Canada Council for the Arts regarding whether my two grant applications were successful or not (should find out in the next two weeks). I have also been trying by any means possible to find an angel investor.
But there is no rest for the wicked. I have faith now that Southern Time will happen like never before, but there are two sides to faith. One must do their part if the Universe is to reciprocate.
Which is why I am asking you to help if you can and feel so moved. Time is of the essence, and the potential positive impact the Southern Time project can have is enormous but time sensitive. You can donate directly through our PayPal account, which is on both www.southerntime.ca and www.southerntimeband.com. There is also this crowdfunding site (where all funds will go to us) which is still in operation – https://chuffed.org/project/lost-in-love-no-more – that you can donate through. We will also be launching a Kickstarter campaign soon. So, even you cannot give to the project at this stage, please get the word out to all you know who might want to and can!!!
