Introducing Gwen Davis

Postby watertore » Sun Feb 17, 2008 6:58 pm

Hi All: I am starting a very informal label for one of my special education students, Gwen Davis. Gwen loves music, tv, and movies. She is the rainmain with this stuff. Yesterday she came by and recorded 8 short songs. They are her alone with an acoustic guitar (she never played one before), with karaoke tracks behind her, some elvis and 3 original songs with me backing her as a 1 man band. Proceeds from the sales will go to keep her in blank cds, labels, and cases. She goes through a ton and her mother can't afford to keep up with her :lol: They are $10.00 shipped worldwide. Gwen will make the covers, art, etc. She watched me mixing the songs on the computer and within a few minutes took over! I dream someday I will have a dedicated downtown studio that will record disabled people of all ages. Gwen could do the whole engineer thing by then. Walter

I jst opened a soundclick account for her so you can hear a sample of her original stuff. She writes these songs in 20 seconds. No lie. We have that in comon-fast and 1 take :lol: . the site may not work for a day or so. It has to be cleared first.

thanks for listening guys! I will pull this up at school tomorrow. This is the only music site I frequent that our school doesn't block. I will see if Gwen will respond. Walter
