There have been some exciting things happening in the world of Joacob and Martha.
Firstly; author Ant Ravenwood and his songwriting partner Andy Johnson have been enjoying taking the story out to the public, performing some of the songs and telling the story at libraries and other outlets in and around Northamptonshire. Ant has been visiting more Watermills and other venues for future storytelling events, so keep checking our ‘Events’ page for details.
The Breathing Wheel Live Show has a new date; 24th January 2015 at the same venue. It was felt that more time was needed to work on the music and effects for the show, and the team are working hard to pull everything together for this special one-off event.
Filnally for now; Ant and Andy (aka 2OAK) are working hard on the concept album and have been recording tracks with former bandmate Richard Morris, and will soon be laying tracks down with Charleigh Riche on flute and vocals, and Lara Selmassi on vocals. The double album is hoped to be completed by January 2015 in time for the Live Show.
Also, Ant is looking at an audio version of ‘The Breathing Wheel’ which will take the fantasy story into new and exciting realms! – More news next time.
Thank you to everyone for their support and feedback – Very much appreciated.
