The past few months have been CRAZY CITY. Julia and I have been insane people, spending plenty of late-night hours in the studio after working full days at our jobs. But it's been worth it. There are now 10 tracks recorded from the The White City, including 4 new ones this month alone. I wanted to specifically share the opening number - we're super proud of it and SO thankful for all the time and energy everyone has given to help make it a reality. Have a listen:
Ensemble - Avi Amon, Hannah Dowdy, Benny Gammerman, Julia Gytri, Geoffrey Kidwell, Beth Kirkpatrick, Matthew Ellis Murphy, Sara Nicholson, Helen Park, Mike Siktberg
Guitar - Mike Siktberg
Piano - Will Buck
Chicago 1893. Meet Lucy, a member of Buffalo Bill's Wild West, in town to perform for crowds at the World's Fair. She quickly discovers that she's not interested in performing: all she wants is to be the audience and bear witness to this historic event. As she explores the grounds with Jem, a Columbian Guard, they learn of the modern wonders that the World's Columbian Exposition has to offer, becoming entranced by all of the possibilities that lie in their future.
