Shadow of a Crow – video filming, begins tomorrow!

November 1, 2016 - Author: Jennifer Mylod

It’s with a lot of excitement… and – admittedly… a touch of nerves…  that I’m gearing up to head out to the location for the filming of my 2nd music video – for my new CD!

We’re going to video the title track for – “Shadow of a Crow” – which is…  (dun dun dun)  “Shadow of a Crow”.   I was so happy working with Tom & his crew – from “The Production House, LLC”  during the first video – “Low Willow“…  so – tomorrow, we’ll be heading out, at the crack of dawn… & hitting great weather, at the height of the colorful, Autumn leaves to record.

Amazing – to learn how all this falls into place under the skillful direction of Tom’s keen eye & insight… Looking forward to a full, long, fun and creative day tomorrow!

But HEY!   Here’s a link for a clip of that song – available for digital download, or CD purchase through CD Baby, Amazon & all those music-y  online stores…  & here’s a Youtube – link… to the title track to “Shadow of a Crow”...     🙂

Here’s the FULL CD…  if you’d like to listen to the whole thing:

Play the entire CD! Shadow of a Crow!

Shadow of a Crow

September 9, 2016 - Author: Jennifer Mylod

Got word today, that my cd -“Shadow of a Crow”  is totally finished!  The replication process is complete, and it was ready to be picked up!!!   So I took a drive out to the factory to pick up the cd cases…  and I am so thrilled!  FINALLY!

I can’t help but think about the fact that this is quite a mile post… and I suddenly feel like that little girl again…  and I hear the echo of my small voice… rising up from the back seat of my Mom’s car… hopeful, questioning, asking at least 400 times…   “Are we there yet?”

And this time, I hear:   “Yes Jennifer…  We’re here.”

web-1

I’ve been pouring over – all the computer forms for CD Baby,  and nicking away – slowly at updating the artist (me) profiles,  bios and album notes.   I want to say everything – just right…   but this totally has my head spinning…  and it’s leaving me exhausted at the end of the day.  Even in my sleep – I’m contemplating all the words I chose,  and re-composing this or that… and – needless to say, it’s not a very fitful night’s sleep…  zzzz…

Then throw into this mix…  that I’ve got 8 new songs that were ‘just born’….  and they’re churning – in the swirling eddy of my mental river of inspiration…  so… all this stuff is swirling about in my head – and add  the possible melodies & music that goes along with each song…  and wellllllll…  I’m just a tad bit MORE than overwhelmed.    But I’m not complaining… and I joyfully accept each and all bits of inspiration & insight that’s given to me…  and view it as a beautiful, cherished gift – from my Guardian Angel / Muse.

I would venture to guess… that what’s going on in my head – is similar to the brewing works of a “mad scientist”  – and would be lying if I said, I’ve never fleetingly felt the urge to yell… from my studio loft on the 3rd floor…   “ITS ALIVE!!!!!!”  as I’m being flooded with thoughts typing as FAST as my fingers will move… as I’m concocting zillions of combinations of words that reflect the images and thoughts I try to portrait…

Ok!  So… short blog for now… thrilled with the new cover – (Artwork, photography & graphics – by Original Abbie:  https://www.facebook.com/originalabbie/

And here’s an idea…  Contact me through my website here,  or email me at WinterCastSnow@gmail.com – and mention the offer from this blog – and I’ll waive the shipping & handling costs – if you order the new cd “Shadow of a Crow” – which is only $15…  But I can only do this IF you purchase it directly through me.       If you go through CD baby – you can hear the 30 second samples for each song… but you’ll pay $15 + shipping & handling.   So if you’d like to save the shipping… order it here through me…  Just a thought!

I also – now have Paypal buttons!

Inspirations… and gifts…

July 10, 2016 - Author: Jennifer Mylod

My newest project – “Shadow of a Crow”  is nearly, officially done – and I”m just shy of sending off the final mixes and graphics to the replication company…  this is a huge milestone for me…  It’s been one heck of a long haul…   getting this crow – off the ground.

Screen Shot 2016-07-10 at 12.52.33 PM

But despite the overload of all that… I’ve continued to be besieged with creative thoughts, insights and interests.  My life boat’s been getting swamped… yet I’ve still found the time to nurture family & care for my home, flower & veggie gardens… ride my bike – and hike with the dog…  Screen Shot 2016-07-10 at 1.26.50 PM

but I guess it’s all these things – that are an endless spring of inspiration for me… like candy for my mind.   I have been sent running – to write down and capture… the slide show of images and impressions that flash through my mind…  things that – if they’re not grasped right then and there…  will dissolve into heedlessness…  and be left behind in heaps of forgotten diversions… at the close of unremembered days… in never to recall again memories.

So, in simpler terms:   I write this stuff down – fast.

Screen Shot 2016-07-10 at 1.30.59 PM

I view these images of inspiration that I’m shown… as Divine rewards from above.   I believe that there are favors like this -given to everyone…  but it’s only those who open their eyes, open their hearts, soul & minds and embrace these ethereal gifts… that will be able to recognize / acknowledge them.

So… not to change the subject… but with the confirmation of the autumn “Apple Festival” at Kirby’s Mill – looming in the -not so distant future – again, for me and the band…  I will be unveiling a lot of my new songs from the new cd…  (wow… I almost said ‘album’…  how retro).   I will be bringing these new songs out… which… even as I write this, it makes my heart pound… with what?  Anticipation?  Fear?  Butterflies?

A lot of you ‘know’ me… from all the posts I put up on Facebook… but it’s not really anything ‘personal’…  not really what I hold deep within…  maybe just images of beauty,  or things I observe and choose to share…  but  my songs and how I express them – is like baring my soul.   It’s like being exposed – in a way,  that I’m just not totally comfortable with.   I rarely let people in…  and can honestly say, there’s not many who truly know me.   Some THINK they know me… but they don’t.     Just because I dance to the beat of my own drum…  some people think they have me ALL figured out.  I long ago realized, that others – more often than not – just don’t get it… or me…  and that’s fine.

“Life’s been good… and life’s been not so good at times… but I can’t say it hasn’t been interesting.”  That’s what my Mom always says.    (Here’s me & my Momma)…

Screen Shot 2016-07-10 at 1.17.15 PM

Momma taught me a lot…  but mostly to hold onto faith as best I can, and search for the silver linings in all things.  I have learned to hunt determinedly for silver linings…  and a lot of times, I’ve had trouble even finding the stars shining in the blackness of the nights…   At times I’ve wondered – why the heck I even bother… because sometimes it just gets to be too much, but I am not a quitter… never have been…  and I’ve made it to the other side of the obstacles… of what ever the mountain was at the time… whether from my own determination, or loved ones aid…  and I’ve looked back and been grateful that I found the strength to do what I needed to do.   So I keep gratitude within me…  and look for the goodness around me.  That’s what I dwell on…  not the bad stuff.   I forgive the bad stuff… but I don’t forget it.  I just keep my focus on the beautiful things… and let those beautiful things – define my life.   Maybe that’s why I’m a little nervous about my songs coming out… because  this is what’s on the cd…

Well… that’s all for now.  I’ll be posting the date for the cd release party – as well as liner notes and such… Tuesday…  exactly WHAT Tuesday,  I don’t know yet…  TBA  🙂          xoxo  Jennifer
