I am so excited! Firstly, the new Crimson Chrysalis music video will be uploaded on YouTube today! It was done and directed by Coenie van Staden of Open Plain Productions and wow, what an awesome end product! This coming week it will start going out to the different television channels as well. Secondly, the stock has finally arrived and the album looks stunning! It will only be in store round mid-August though. It was such an incredible feeling to physically hold it in my hands for the first time! It was such a long journey that one almost lost the excitement along the way, but the past week I was totally slapped by excitement! :-))
In the meantime we are still preparing for the live shows and we now have set the official CC launch date. We’ll be launching CC officially the 4th of October in the Atterbury theatre in Pretoria. We can unfortunately only do it then due to the availability of venues. The new CC band will be live on stage with me that night, as we have used top session muso’s for the album. I have Steven Bosman on drums, Rossouw Coetzee on bass, and Ruan du Preez on guitar and they rock!! The live rock band will then be combined with all the synths, programming, live strings etc that we did in studio while recording the album. Our long-term goal is to eventually have the 2 legs of Classic rock all live on stage, the rock band as well as a symphonic orhestra. Obviously that will be a very costly exercise, but all in good time. The time for that will come. We also want to combine that with strong visuals, dancing etc to make a CC show a true audio-visual experience!
You must all have a wonderful week. . .till next time. . .x
