What about the singers? and the staff…

And as our “first accoustic pre-demo” gets in shape, we´ve been working on the previously mentioned selection of the guest singers carefully, as well as working the part of the staff configuration; from our steady photographers to our new public relations manager to our designer; each one of them talented women whose names we´ll reveal officially at the proper time.

The singers issue is what has been on the mind of our followers and we have received some mail with this kind of questions. So, remembering our short history we can see the singers that have been involved one way or another with us and our development, we have names like the famous Marcela Bovio (Stream of Passion) and Marjan Welman (Autumn), with whom due to their multiple professional tasks and because of this project was mostly merely an idea, we never put together a finished song or demo; then our beloved ukrainian singer Larisa Shelest came to scene, whose voice captured us inmediately from the very first time and who have been working with us long distance and countinously since 2007; later there were as guests singers on the live stage for the The Gathering´s tribute parties from Anna Laura Aguirre (Bisana) & Marcela Bovio to Michéle Ávila (Melandrolia) or Sharon Quintero (ex-Periadam). As time went by, the idea of recording in studio with everyone of them has been on my mind but for any reason we hadn´t finished something strong but for the The Gathering´s cover versions. More recently, our brazilian friend Tatiana Berke recorded also with us and we even developed one of her songs together in studio and yet again, long distance.

Nowadays, we have defined the action plan to finish the recording of our very first album with a clear path, and because of that, we are going to work with four or five guest singers who represent different geographical areas. At the moment we have already three spots filled up, with one or two spots remaining; of course as soon as the final line up is ready we´ll publish it here. I can tell you that in order to provide the project with a powerfull voice that can even be the lead singer to cover live events in México if needed, we have searched hard for our ideal singer, a mexican one of course.

So, we are living exciting moments of sustancial advance in these two firsts months of the year 2013, filled up with the recording of our “first accoustic pre-demo” in which our guests singers are currently and finally working, with the addition of people who loves the project and has put their knowledge in our favor and with the selection of our definitive core of singers (we are waiting only for a pair of confirmations to make it official).
