Dreamology on CD

When I was 18, a normally shy girl walked into a bar with a guitar and asked if she would be allowed to play some songs. I played on the spot ("Ramblin Man" was my signature piece) and got an offer for my first gig: fifty dollars to play for 2 hours. I don't think the pay scale for musicians has changed much since then. I've been writing songs since my teens, but Dreamology is my first recording adventure. I don't usually delay gratification, but it took me years to get up the guts to make a CD. Tom Christopher, the producer, was instrumental in kicking me out of the proverbial nest and seeing if I would fly. February 2004... I was in a great big studio in Rhinebeck, NY with Tom recording little songs. After 4 days of recording and 1 day of mixing, we thought we were almost done. It was to be an acoustic CD, minimally produced, bare, simple; just guitar, vocals, percussion, and a melotron. But something funny happened - - the vision evolved into something quirky, dreamy, spacey, dare I say spiritual? He started adding more instrumentation from his Florida studio: Indian influence, backward guitar, & other cool sounds. The project had delays: hurricanes in Florida, snowstorms any time I had a ticket to West Palm to fly down and see him, numerous acts of God. Lightning struck the studio and hours upon hours of recording files vanished and had to be rebuilt. February 2007, we finally got back to the studio to finish it. We pared it down to 8 songs that flowed together nicely; some I wrote, some Tom wrote, and one written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney. Hope the CD takes you on a journey to somewhere you want to go. Peace, Laura.
