DON GRAHAM – And so it begins!!!!
January 21 2010
Hello to all my old friends and a big welcome to all my new friends.
This is a very exciting time in my life and career and I’m glad you all dropped by to share it with me. All of us; myself, Chestnut Tree Productions and the management team at The Entertainment Music Group have been working really hard for the past seven months writing, recording and planning the release of our new project: DON GRAHAM….A WILLING HEART.
We are happy to report we are finished! As a songwriter, the process can go one of two ways. It can be frustrating if the producer doesn’t quite get what you’re trying to project in the song or it can be an incredible moment when everything you had imagined when you sat alone with your guitar and wrote the song suddenly comes to life with everything you hoped for in the tracks.
Fortunately for me, the latter was the case. Working with BILL HILL , whom I’ve known nearly all of my adult life both as a band mate/ guitarist extraordinaire and best friend, it was all I hoped it would be. The deeper we got into the recording the more I realized just how lucky I was to have someone who “got” me and my songs like BILL did. As BILL used to say, sometimes the notes you don’t play are as important as the ones you do play.
The same can be said for our communication during production; the things we didn’t have to say were as important as the ones we did say. And the very cool part, for all of us, was utilizing BILL’S son ANDREW HILL , who is carrying on the guitar wizardry of his dad. ANDREW brought so much more to the record than just his guitar playing, which I’m sure you’ll agree, is awesome, he also brought production and arranging skills to the table, making this an incredible team effort.
The management team, Sandy Graham and Rose Mary Learn are currently finalizing the release and promotion of A WILLING HEART.
Stay tuned my friends and please come back and visit us often! THANKS FOR LISTENING!!!
