Hello my dear friends and supporters and welcome to my first newsletter!
Today, it is with great joy and gratitude that I announce the release of my second album - UNDER THE COVERS! This work represents the apex of several years of work whereby I have received loving assistance, support, advice, and general encouragement from many of you, some of whom contributed their wonderful talents to various pieces on this record.
As the title suggests, this record is a collection of 15 beautiful cover songs that I have chosen based on their individual meaning to me and the place they each hold in my heart. In addition there is one original bonus song at the end of the album called LETS COUNT SILENCES that I co-wrote with a dear friend and artistic collaborator, A. Molotkov. The general theme of UNDER THE COVERS is one of reaching out for connection with others, one that I think we can all relate to.
You can now purchase UNDER THE COVERS from CD Baby using the link http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/ragonlinde2 or from iTunes searching under Ragon Linde. If you have subscribed to the free 3-month Apple Music trial, you can stream the entire album using the link https://itun.es/us/bloO8.
For my friends in and around Portland, I want to also invite you to come celebrate the release of UNDER THE COVERS with me at the Analog Cafe on Sunday August 16th. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. and you can save money by purchasing advanced tickets at https://tickets.aftonshows.com/RagonLinde.
Over the coming days and weeks, I will be speaking further on the making of this record, the reasons why I selected these songs, and mentioning some of the individual contributions from many of you in the recording and production of these songs. You can follow these discussions on Facebook.
Again, my warmest gratitude to each of you for your interest and support. If you like what you hear, please help me spread the word by sharing these links with your friends and family!
