Title: CD ready - Ashes for Dreams album
Post by: Zedd on May 25, 2019, 10:08:13
Hi all!


Im very excited to share with you all that @Jambrains and I release our debut album Cut You Loose this morning!!!


Myself and JB met in the Kitchen and all the 12 songs featured were first released here and both your support and feedback were critical in developing and refining them. We would like to thank you sincerely for that. The first song, Lie with Me was released here exactly 3 years ago today and I remember the excitement (and trepidation!!) very clearly. One year later we formed Ashes for Dreams. Its been such a blast so far...

Congratulations Karen on getting your first Album out. You must be very excited, especially as it is like an album full of singles, not a pale filler in there whatsoever.

I listened on Spotify and really liked that final track which was new to me, but there is a consistency of quality throughout that just shows this whole thing took some time in the making.

The musical chemistry between the two of you is what makes this collaboration something special, so good luck with this release. You deserve success and I hope it really makes an impact!

@MichaelA Thanks so much for your lovely words.. yes we do love every one of these songs and I can remember the excitement as each was released on SC when we were doing them initially🙂. Lie With Me is special I agree - its a great song and its where it all started and I guess we didnt have any idea how it would turn out but it was such fun to do (as they all were) and we both love it...


Thanks again!


And yes it is a thrill... Im so very proud of this record!!!

Congratulations to both of you @Zedd and @Jambrains !!!
I've heard some of your work and you already know that I love it.
Now's the time (this afternoon?) to listen to the rest.
Beautiful artwork too!
Bet you're thrilled out of your boots (?) with all the excitement. And I'm almost as excited as you.
I wish it (your release) lots of luck.
Enjoy the ride.
Kind regards, Gus

Congratulations to both you and @Jambrains .

This album is a serious piece of work. I'm listening to the opening cut on my best headphones and the performances and sonics are simply amazing.

Yeah....I'm a fan....and I'll be sharing.

@Zedd and @Jambrains
that is an impressive body of work, all the details are right, and the songs and musical arangments are extremely varied
while at the same time ...there is a common thing in many of your songs
they can be uplifting and rocking, and yet confronting at the same time  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

it is a great album  ::headphone::

five Michelin stars ***** for this record ...congratulations  :ok:

Well to kick off my next 100 tracks on my Eclectic Music Connections Facebook page

https://www.facebook.com/EMCMrB

I've done a two track Debut Album feature for @Zedd and @Jambrains featuring a bit of spiel and links featuring 'Cut You Loose' and 'Freeloader'

Out of interest I've now got a playlist of over 7.25 hours of music including some Kitchen artists too ;-)

https://soundcloud.com/mrbouzouki/sets/eclectic-music-connections

It's nice to think some that started here has produced such a great body of work. Be proud both of you :-)

Hey @Zedd and @Jambrains from Ashes for Dreams!! Had your album on repeat last weeks in my car, at home and in via a bluetooth speaker. Must say it was in the background, so I cannot possibly comment on every single song. But I wanted to let you know I enjoyed listening soooo much!! Fab music, great fusion between JB's guitars and Irish folk.. If there's specific songs you need feedback for, let me know. Otherwise I'll keep streaming your album every once in a while. Wow!! What a pleasure to listen to!! I'm so proud you 2 beautiful people met here in our kitchen!!

Cheers, Love and Peace!

Views, this side of The North Sea so far:
565

A rather low count, lower than I expected to be honest, but I haven't lost my optimism.
Keep up the good work @Zedd / @Jambrains!

You are easy to approach, but your .com isnt. No fault of yours of course.
When traveling days are over, Ill be in touch.
When no one lives in a certain area, no one is interested in quick reacting internet.  This message has taken some 20 minutes to,process. So there is prove: living outside glamorous places is slowing you down.
Till......
