Greetings friends and fam and an early good morning. Many of you have read blog posts I’ve done journaling the release of my debut project, Halcyon Sky. The wait is just about over. Halcyon Sky will be available for download this Saturday, August 9 (coincidentally, that date, I just realized, is another special date).

For those who are not familiar with the blog posts and background of the project, here we go. Some of you know I’m the originator of the chillout, smooth electronica, and downtempo podcast called The Sunday Soundtrack. It was about 10 years ago that I became really enamored with those genres of music – very smooth, cool, laid back, easy, and relaxing. Music is a universal language and those genrutes, reminiscent of tracks you’d here along the beaches and venues of Ibiza, became a favorite of mine.

Being a musician since I was a teenager and jumping into the foray of musical production since the 90s and watching the technology advance, I decided to one day release a project such as this.

Halcyon Sky is a collection of seven tracks of instrumental chillout, my take on it, based on the years I’ve been listening to it. I have the distinct pleasure of featuring one track entitled “Deep” by C3 (better known as Crosscountry Collective – Trel Robinson, Todd Kelley, and myself) Better yet, it’s really just a set of tracks I wanted to share with the world. Nothing needing some spectacular trumpet fanfare of introduction or anything I hope to make some tremendous profit off, just a gift share. Those who are fans of these genres will enjoy this project the most. Those who are new to these genres, well, I hope you’ll enjoy some, if not all of the tracks on this project.

I’m also happy to say that you’ll be able to read two upcoming interviews by Calandra Branch and Felixia Hodges about this project’s origin and a few other goodies I’m sure 🙂

Halcyon Sky – available August 9 on bandcamp.com

Thanks for the read. Enjoy the day.
