Andrew Sisk of Share…FREE album download!

I just got this update from Forward Music Group for a free album download from front man Andrew Sisk of Share. I just downloaded this cool album…check it out!
If you like Andrew Sisk’s songwriting and free music than Forward Music Group has just the thing for you; a new album by his project Coco et Co. 
After a long Montreal winter, Coco et Co spent the spring months poaching old keyboards and yard sale records to serve as inspiration for their debut recording, St. Denis.  A new, minimalist duet project for Andrew Sisk (Share, Sleepless Nights) and his musical partner Miranda Durka; the duo wrote and recorded the album in their empty apartment on the street of the album’s namesake.  Informed by the approach of Serge Gainsbourg, the spirit of Sade, and the mood of Low they limited their thoughtful songs to arrangements for drum machine, keys, guitar, and two voices. 
The first 500 downloads are FREE!

Adaline’s new abum – produced by Hawksley Workman

Adaline graced our cyber stage earlier this year with her striking voice and songs.
This winter she packed up and planted herself in Toronto to begin work on her new album produced by established Canadian producer/performer Hawksley Workman.  I can’t help but be excited not only for her but also to hear some material from this sure to be amazing album!

Adaline wrote about the recording in her myspace blog:
Hey from Toronto! 


I am THRILLED to finally be able to publicly announce that I have been recording my new album this summer with the prolific Canadian artist HAWKSLEY WORKMAN as my producer.  Some of the songs are co-written with Hawksley as well. Hawksley has produced incredible albums with artists like Sarah Slean, Hey Rosetta!, Tegan and Sara, Justin Rutledge and more.  
The album has a more electronic feel thanks to Swedish producer Marten Tromm who came from Stockholm to work with us!  We are almost finished the record which will be released early Spring 2011 on Light Organ/Universal Records.  


Checkout her “Behind the Scenes” video of the making of her album with an interview with Hawsley and see more of her @ http://www.myspace.com/adalinesmusic
