On August 20 we will release our first themed record on our independent label, Darling Street Records. Produced by Gary Paczosa, Sweetheart of the Sun embraces these closely related subjects and weaves them throughout our twelve-song record: Water. Travel. Motion.
Our first independent release, The Brick Album in 2011, was only made possible because of our collaboration with you guys, our supporters. And now with Sweetheart of the Sun we turn the tables and present new music to you on our own.
The songs we wrote, the music we made are the result of working closely with some of the incredibly talented friends we have around us, along with personal life experiences. We are inspired to no end by our collaborators: Carl Miner, Jedd Hughes, Kai Welch, Gary Paczosa, Sons of Fathers, Aoife O'Donovan, Luke Reynolds, Jon Randall and Andrea Zonn, all of whom contributed to making this album.
We designed Sweetheart of the Sun to be listened to in it's entirety, segueing songs in and out of one-another. We hope digital listeners will choose full-album download over single downloads and enjoy this musical journey.
We'd love Sweetheart of the Sun to be heard by as many people as possible, but as most of you know The Greencards became independent artists in 2010.This means we do not have record label backing, so we we need your help to get the word out. Please consider sharing this newsletter to your friends and sharing our video on facebook, twitter pages and other social media sites. I know we've discovered some of our favorite music this way!
