“Life” includes hobbies

So this blog began as something to discuss my music creating and production, but i find that i have been expanding my market to include imprints and prints of my photographs.

Currently https://www.zazzle.com/edward_jenny_photos is the place to find and purchase my current catalog of photo prints on paper, canvas, and metal, as well as greeting cards, postcards, cups and mugs. Zazzle is discounting most product by 40%-50% across the site.

These and my music make good gifts for friends and family.

Cheers

2nd Blues in the Key … album is in final mix

I am fortunate to be able to be my own engineer and mixer, and co-producer with my wife Sabra. As the music makes it’s way onto digital media we spend time working to mold them into a form that will be both energetic and relaxing, which many who own the first two instrumental albums say is what they experience with them.

Blues in the Key of Hope, is in the final stages of mixing and setting the ordering on CD. Then a simple mastering pass. Then  of course picking album art and prepping the CD package. As with the other albums, we will first copyright any and notify our performing rights orgs of intent. Then we put them up as downloads through our distributor, CDBaby, who places them globally with itunes, amazon, etc.

Once there is a budget, we will produce CDs which will also go to to CDBaby and Amazon and any brick and mortar stores that want to carry them.

Slow growing an indie music company.

New website being produced …

Sunforest-Waterwahl’s internet production group is putting together an ecommerce website to promote and sell music from Edward Jenny, and possibly other artists. We will be selling CD’s, mp3 downloads, and eventually limited edition vinyl. We will also be creating some graphic materials for merchandise, which is a little further down the road.

There are no current plans for live gigs at this time, but that is on the agenda to put together a performing group.

CD’s will also be available from CDBaby and Amazon.

Thanks one and all for your support. Be well, Peace.

CD’s into production

Packaging production can be a very tedious process, even if one has done it before.

good quality photos have to be chosen and manipulated to appear as correct size and coloring format within a template that often seems as though it is in a foreign language … these very precise templates are provided by the chosen duplication company.

Type faces must be chosen to be clean and legible, paragraph placement in relation to borders and other elements in your layers of Photoshop or which ever tool is used.

All content must be carefully edited and proofread to be sure of accuracy.

finals are a composite of several individual pictures and then must be saved in a PDF to upload to manufacturing. Not jpg or other standard image formats ….

at any rate we have completed and submitted these to our duplication partner along with the music masters from our CDBaby stores to be made into CD’s for sale on CDBaby, Amazon, and other vendors within about 2 weeks time.

you can view ‘Emerald Forest Rhythms’ title in ‘3-d’ here. a little slow to load.

This is exciting for we here at Sunforest-Waterwahl Publishing and Record company.

Thank you for your support.

Be well, Peace.

 

The many flavors of Blues

Grew up in the mid-west, mostly, except when traveling from military base to military base. My father, Thelo M. Jenny, was born in E. St. Louis, his much older brother, Waldo started out in Med school but after the crash of 29, he chose to become an E. St. Louis police officer. At any rate time was spent in this powerful melting pot of poverty, hard living people who’s music was very much full of variations on blues from the delta, St. Louis across the river and some country, jazz, bluegrass, polka, and Dixieland thrown in for good measure. This exposure later served very well when playing in the earliest of local blues rock bands which, opened for many known acts and also got to be on interesting record labels. My favorite writing partner and producer for several years was Abner Spector, whom i met while recording at and for Chess/Cadet Concept.

I have a Soundcloud site as well as many other locations for my music on the internet.

I currently have set another song’ Analog Blues in a Digital World’ from the 2nd instrumental album ‘Blues in the Key of Peace’ as a free download.

hope you enjoy all the streaming tunes … be well, Peace.

Cheers

Edward Jenny
