Finally, all of the artists that Singing Hearts has worked with since the company formed four years ago will be put on wax.
Until then, Singing Hearts/The Early Years, Vol. 1 will hit all streaming platforms Friday.
Singing Hearts, the brainchild of Johndavid Bartlett, Casey Stanislaw, and Joe Tacke, is a production company/consulting service to “help people get heard,” Bartlett said.
The timing of Vol. 1 is right, he added. “When we started to develop some new projects, I thought it was time that some past projects get a spotlight.”
Tracks by Denver Williams & The Gas Money, Bruce Magnus, and Jenna Clark, plus a live recording of Williams’ former psych-rock outfit Chillamundo, will make up the LP.
Vol. 1 is $10 but free to stream. Bartlett and company intend to release more Singing Hearts material in the fall.
“We are ecstatic,” Bartlett said. “The bands are excited, too. I think it’s important that artists have direct connections to the platforms they use to get their music out with a human connection. Singing Hearts is about the artists.”
