It Will Record – Album Preview!

It Will Record cover

Dafydd Hughes and I have recorded another album of instrumentals. It Will Record features a few of my originals, a few of Dafydd’s originals, and a few of our favourite cover tunes.

No overdubs, straight to tape. Recorded in my living room over a couple days.

We’ll be releasing the full album soon, but for now you can listen to these two preview tracks.

8 Years

Today is our 8th anniversary! One year ago on this day we got married in the park.

I’m in Los Angeles today, and Ali is in Philadelphia. That’s the way it goes with our work schedules. Knowing we weren’t going to be in the same place at the same time today, we decided to celebrate this anniversary a few days ago in New York.

We squished into the photo booth at the Ace hotel to capture the moment…

Discography: Mia Sheard – Curse of the Vorus

Curse of the Vorus is a twisty, dynamic, epic and enveloping album. It swivels seamlessly between full-on rock and more intimate moments with up-close vocals and guitar.

This is the kind of album you want to listen to while reading the lyrics, wearing big headphones, lying on the floor. (She doesn’t have the lyrics available on her bandcamp page…but maybe we can persuade her to add them).
