Anna Su: Howling Tree

As some of you may know, I have been working for a number of months producing a friend's first album.  Anna Su is a gifted songwriter and singer with a truly unique ability to bring people together around her music.  Her music has been described as "gypsy folk", but it's really just music that brings together all the things she lovestravel, love, and community.

I had the pleasure of working with Anna to bring her music to life through recordings.  We worked in a number of different locations and on different formats, from overdubbing piano parts at my house to recording live to tape at a friend's house.  The result is something we are proud of, and we sincerely hope you enjoy it.

 The album will be released 10/10/10 in physical form, but you can preview it online (and purchase it digitally) here.  One of the tracks, "Return to Me" is available as a free download for a limited time.  Please let us know what you think!

Also, there are some pictures of the recording sessions here and here.  

Thank you all for your support over the past 8 months.  We so appreciate all who encouraged us to pursue this project.  Feel free to comment here with your thoughts, or send us an e-mail.

Lyrics to "Monsters"

See the monsters tall
Holding that crystal ball
Letting their hair go grey
Just like my love for you

And see the smokestacks rise
The white clouds in the skies
Colliding sheets of air
Shaped like my love for you

Those nightmare winds that blew you 'round for years
They can't touch you here
Call it fate, call it what ever you please
Just stay right here with me

I bought up all your cars
Put all their keys in jars
Then paid off all your loans
Just to show my love for you

I threw your pictures out
Left you no room for doubt
Then filled my notebooks up
With all my love for you
