One year ago today Élan Vital was released.
I admit, right up to April 12, 2017 I had this increasingly odd sense of panic as the album neared completion. The songs which had been so very private & personal for so long were beginning to feel like they were slipping from my grasp and right out the window into the night - and I was the cause.
February & March of last year brought some sleepless nights as I nearly went mad with finite mix/mastering edits, drafting press releases, readying the website, publishing, planting 'Kindling' promo discs around Duluth all the while I grappled the acute emotion of letting go of these songs from my firm clutch. So, THANK YOU to those who've supported & encouraged the effort and continue to do so.
On this day I am pleased to share that new Sadkin songs/recordings are well underway and perhaps most curiously, I am excited to share with you all that Sadkin is suddenly a fully formed live creature, yep. "Check, check...is this thing on?" ..."Can I get more vocals in the monitor please?"...I got this.
