Backing Vocals

Yes, I've been lax in blogging. But the reason is because I'm on a very cool Microsoft project that's had me completely wrapped up for the better part of a month now. I can't really talk about it until I'm done (hopefully in another month), but it's a rather unique--and somewhat odd--opportunity that I couldn't pass up!


In the meantime, the report on the album is that I spent the month of June flying back and forth to the Bay Area to record backing vocals for my album! Most of the tracks are done....just a little minor tweaking left to do, and the album will be ready to send out to guest soloists, and possibly even labels for distribution deals.

Anyway, the singers that I've been working with are actually my old singing group up at Stanford University, Talisman. Many of you may know them as the group that sang Baba Yetu--well, I spent four weekends recording with the current singers, as well as a handful of alums--a sort of Best Of Talisman group, so to speak. And just for fun, here are some pictures from the sessions.

As I get closer to being able to release the album, I'm going to start posting preview MP3s here of the songs. So keep an eye out for them!

Hey, you might want to update your link to Stanford Talisman, right now it leads to a German porn site :)

WOW, that is totally bizarre! I've alerted Talisman's PR people about the issue...seems to be on their side, and not on mine.

Thanks for catching that!

(LOL.)

THe site had an expiration date, and some people (who apparently do this for a living) took the name because of the sites high amount of popularity and are using the german porn site as a blackmail. they will sell the site back for several thousand dollars. right now the REAL Talisman website is running from www.stanfordtalisman.org
