It's been a while since I've blogged. My apologies. Although, I'm pretty sure life and other responsibilities have kept your mind from wondering, "Where is that new post from Morgan?" hehe
Actually, I've been quite busy this summer!! I've been all over the West Coast and Southeast with Lovechild Zombie (Joel Jacks), made an EP, learned to play some concertina, and finished my looooooooooooong delayed album End of Cinderella.
That's right - it's FINALLY complete! Through the help of supporters via Kickstarter, I was able to financially afford to complete the project the way I wanted to. I'm really thrilled with the end product! So many people had a hand in creating this album, including Grammy-nominated producer John Merchant to A-list Nashville players Bif Watson, Kenny Greenberg, and Mike Brignardello. I was also very fortunate to partner with some incredible writers on this album, including Pete Sallis,
Chris Boardman, Michele Meyers, Jeff Lockerman, and Mark Carson. In a way, it's felt like orchestrating a major production, much like Cirque du Soleil, but without the clowns. Well, maybe one or two clowns, so to speak. :')
And (I can hardly believe this part) the final product, the album itself, is shipping on Wednesday of this week!! Yippy Skippy! So, I wanted to tell you guys. Please, tell everyone! Share this blog! Direct your friends to my website at morganbracy.com. I will have digital downloads available via Bandcamp and iTunes eventually. Once those are up, i'll let you know! But I must say, the artwork is beautiful, and to me, there's nothing like having the physical copy. ;" )
Here's what some critics have said about End of Cinderella already:
"End of Cinderella is a brilliant piece of work." SKOPE
"Bracy's soft vocals will bring listeners in by the barrelful, while the smartly-crafted instrumental arrangements highlight all of Bracy's unique qualities...Pick up this album today." Neufutur Magazine
