I’ve been a bit slow on my blogs lately, but its been for a good reason: things have been getting very busy here at Jen Haugland Music! My husband and I have just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary (a major milestone and miracle for us for anyone who knows our testimony)! We took a little vacation time away at the beautiful Ponte Vineyard & Winery in Temecula, CA and I am now on the countdown to finishing my EP! I will be tracking vocals in studio with Matt Kees, my producer, on this Thursday and the final mastering should be finished by the end of the month. Sheri Gould has been working with me on vocals to help me be at my best for this day! I am so thankful for her!
Be watching for an official announcement of a release date of YOUR LOVE COMES AFTER ME very soon! I am so excited and can’t wait to share this new inspirational music with you!
Another exciting thing that just was completed, was my new logo for Jen Haugland Music. I love it’s versatility. I can change where I place the text, tag line and change background colors to to match any medium I am using it with. My friend Shaun did a really nice job on it! A friend from church who saw it said, “Jen, it is so you!” Perfect! That’s what I wanted!
My graphic designers for the album art are busy at it. A joint effort between my two beautiful daughters, Jessica & Rachel, who insisted this needed to be a family project. They are pretty talented too and can get the job done! We have some great photos to work with from our photo shoot (done by my daughter Jessica as well). In fact, the current photos on the website here were done by my other daughter Rachel.
There is also a Release Party in the works for the new EP in September, so I will keep you posted on that as well! You will ALL be invited! My local Christian Bookstore is working with me on the details! It’s all coming down to the wire and I can’t believe it is finally happening! My first album! Yea!!!
Blessings to you all!
