Since there was probably no star shining over Chicago’s Gravity Studios at 2am, we thought we’d announce it here–the baby is born! No, not that baby. And maybe it’s reaching a little to compare the two. Still, we’re proud to announce that the CD is finished! Doug McBride did the mastering with mixing engeneer James Auwarter and his assistant Miela giving valuable inputs. The first couple of reactions have been more than positive and although sudden peace on earth is probably not imminent, you can expect a good sound and rich stories that will hopefully make your corner of the world a tiny bit brighter. We’ll keep you posted on availability, concerts and all that jazz.
This past Tuesday found Hedreich rocking the Davos culture prize ceremony. Yes, you read it right, rocking it! The distinguished guests at this formal ceremony morphed into a choir under Hedreich’s tutelage as they learned and helped to sing two songs from her upcoming CD. The evening found them dancing, clapping and singing along at this two-part event, staged at the Kirchener Museum and the Hotel Europe piano bar. Along with Tom Gisler on keys and Jost Müller on Cajon, the Culture Committe from Davos celebrated the evening in high musical style.
And on the CD front, we’d like to welcome aboard James Auwater or Chicago, Illinois. He’ll be spending the next weeks mixing the project to perfection–and he’s got the credentials to do it!
“The writing and recording phase was MUCH easier, ” says Hedreich. “This waiting is horrible!! It must be what it’s like to be a dad waiting for the baby to be born!” says Hedreich.
At least our artist will be spared the pacing in the waiting room. Although she will have the task of listening, revising and approving all mixes, while waiting she will have the honor of attending the Vienna International Choir Festival. The Inspirational Singers, will be singing in and around Vienna, including at the prestigious Schonbrunn Palace.
