Billy’s Blog – Thursday, 13th November ’13
Well the time has arrived! Our live album 30 is ready for release. The 1st release will be a pre-order from our website www.aslan.ie. When you pre-order the album it will be signed by all the band with a dedication on it if you want.
As we are not in a position to do any in store signings we feel this is a great way to get your album signed. Also it will be delivered worldwide so it does not matter if you’re in Sydney, New York or Germany, the album will be delivered straight to your door for €15.
Later on we will be making the album available for worldwide download on iTunes etc. We also have something very exciting happening soon… more details on that later!
It was great rehearsing with Christy during the week. We had a great laugh running through the songs and catching up on all the latest band news. He is in great form and itching to do a gig.
As you all know, I am a mentor for the Eurovision, YES the Eurovision. I have to find a song and a singer and on Feb 28th 2014 my act will go up against another 4 and the winner gets to represent Ireland in Copenhagen in May. I promise you all I will pick a great song. NO GIMMICKS and a great singer to sing it. If you have a song you think might be suitable, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks to all of you who have sent in songs already. I promise you I am listening to them all.
We have been having a bit of trouble with our website but it is all sorted now. A big thanks to SHEENA for all the hard work she did in getting it sorted and a big thanks to Paul Andrews who once again has come up with great artwork for the 30 album. The track “Wait for our friends” is going to radio. It sounds great and has all the elements of the live gig and features the Gardiner Street Gospel choir, The string Quartet with Ken Rice and Pat Fitzpatrick on piano. You can check it out and download it from iTunes.
Right, I have to go and listen to some more songs! Tune in later, same time , same bat channel!
