With one week to go, This is lizzard is getting ultra excited about the release of the new EP, 'The Orcas Sessions'.
This transcontinental production in collaboration with third member of the band, Orcas Island local and awesome multi-instrumentalist, Gene Nery, will be available next week!!
After working 13 years on our debut album 'Won't Give Up'
, we decided not to wait too long with a second. Actually, the idea to record these songs was a spontaneous one. We were rehearsing for a gig in Gene's living room last Summer when we said to each other: "We should've recorded that!" So we got together and did just that. And more. Gene sent additional recordings over the internet to Roland, who put it all together, then mixed and mastered the whole thing here in Stolk Music Studio.We just can't wait to share it with you!
One week left to listen to the sneak preview track 'Wake Up and Dream' here
Next week is also the unveiling of our original holiday song, "Christmas in Summertime" (which is also included in the EP). It's an unplugged Christmas song in our unique style, which focuses on one of our main themes - being far away from the ones we love.
(Our fans down under should get a kick out of it too, as they really do get to spend Christmas in the summertime!)
We'll be releasing it together with an awesome new video clip next week!Upcoming Performance
December 14, Westdorpe Christmas Market
We will also have copies of 'Won't Give Up' and the brand new EP 'The Orcas Sessions' for sale - come on by, enjoy the market and the music! It's Not Easy Being Green
We are still going green in support of Greenpeace Nederland
this month, and would like to pay special attention to their latest action against the building of a second nuclear power plant in the south of Holland and burying the waste under the ground...
They sure know how to get their point across! Here's to Greenpeace for never giving up!
