Ho ho ho, Friend!
Okay, I know Christmas is over and Kwanzaa is in full swing already, but I just love playing Santa. Got some more goodies for you today!
Octavia of Earth, Vol. 2 Update
Here's another behind-the-scenes look at the recording sessions for Octavia of Earth, Volume 2. While working on the vocals for "Space Invaders", Skip the Needle band members Vicki Randle and Kofy Brown got experimental with their harmonies on this funky track. Check them out working on a section towards the end, where you can hear them blowing the roof off with the lyrics, "the power of love". And then watch what happens after, as the love keeps flowing through the whole team. ❤️ Click the image below for the video!
VOICES from the past
Last year for the holidays, our friends at Voices: Lesbian A Cappella for Justice recorded a beautiful and tender rendition of the Latvian lullaby, "Vine Vinetas". We remixed their recording into a video for our Equinox show, and thought you might like to see it this time of year, when so many of us are missing our loved ones. Click the image below to see the video for Vine Vinetas as part of a playlist of the songs from A Very Marianas Equinox.
