When Sylvia sent me the pieces for "Night Of A Thousand Years" (through the "Veil”), the largest section was its Orchestral foundation. She later guided me as to how this "Streamed" piece should be edited and used under the full version of this Song.
When Sylvia and I were assembling this album, we talked about including this “foundation” Track but decided against it. Because this is a "Concept" album, with an interwoven series of Songs and a flowing base of emotions, adding this particular Track, even at the end, would take-away from that experience. Instead, we decided to include it as a "Bonus” Track.
So we now have that "unedited", "just as I received it from Sylvia" Track on our BandCamp page. Anyone who purchases our "Perfectionately Yours" album from BandCamp, will now recieve the album's downloadable Poster and this Bonus Track as a "Thank You" for supporting our work.

On July 1, 2016, Sylvia and I finally finished our album: "Perfectionately Yours". It took us over 24-monhts to do this, while Sylvia and I worked "through the Veil". It's almost 70-minutes in length. It's a "Concept Album". It's our story, our Life, in a general sense from Sylvia's point of "crossing-over" to now. Most of the Songs can apply to anyone's loss of their Loved One.
This album is raw, rough and, at times, a bit "out there". It takes the Listener from the Chaos I found myself in… through Disorientation… Anger, Sadness, re-finding myself… to re-connecting again to Sylvia.
Right now, we need funding, in order to get the CDs manufactured, the Posters printed, basically, to get this album Distributed.
On September 25, 2016, we Launched our crowd-funding campaign. It's on crowd-funding site: "Patreon". Here's the link:
If you'd like to receive this album for a very low price, or would like to own 1 of our very specially-made, layered, logo-bearing, Lavender Candles, or would like to have our logo on a Drumhead, to hang on your wall, then please visit our Patreon page above for more details on this next phase.
After digging into our latest song, "N.O.A.T.Y.", yesterday, it finally started coming-together and is now able to maintain its own identity.
Since I knew Sylvia wanted this to be an "Orchestral" piece, there were a few guidelines I needed to stick to:
Anyway, this song is not quite done yet but it's a LOT further along than it was 2-days ago. Right now, unless something else changes, this song:
Although this song calls for "me" to sing it, I had a very difficult Time "figuring-out" and then "learning" the Vocal part. Typically, modern music stays within a 1-to 2-note jump, especially in Vocal melodies. This song has a 5-note jump in it! When I 1st Streamed it, there was a 6-note jump in the Vocal line but Sylvia changed that part of the melody but still left a 5-note jump.
This song is a bit haunting and the melody will stay with you for a while… or maybe it's just because we've been working on it for about 2-weeks now… and listening to "parts" or "all" of it MANY, many times.
As I mentioned before, I really wish we could share the songs on this album, as we finish them, with at least a few of you. It's so boring, exciting and frustrating to not be able to share the "music" part of this journey as Sylvia and I travel through the sonic landscape of this upcoming album.
