7000apart Newsletter February 2019
It’s already February Newsletter time, where did January go!?
We have a huge announcement on Monday, February 11th so look out for it on social media and your email!
Now let's catch you up on what we’ve been up to since December 2018. We got back from our super productive and fun trip to Sweden January 10th, we had an awesome show the next day in Wisconsin and then left for Nashville three days later. With all of our traveling, this meant we weren’t home for nearly 6 weeks, which is most of 2019.
In Nashville we stayed at Christian singer Amy Grant’s childhood home, which is on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful city skyline. We also wrote a song at SESAC (one of the U.S.’s 3 main publishing companies) with the very talented singer and artist Davis Mallory, did our first open mic in Nashville, went to see a songwriters round with incredibly talented songwriters who write hits for artists including our friend we met last time we were in Nashville. We also wrote and worked on a demo for a song with the audio engineer who worked on for King & Country’s latest album. Our trips to Stockholm and Nashville both blew our minds with how many talented and kind humans we met.
Since being back from Nashville, where it was over 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 Celcius) one day, Wisconsin experienced the coldest polar vortex in a generation with arctic temperatures at nearly -26 degrees Fahrenheit (-32 Celsius) and a massive snowstorm, welcome home 80 degree temperature difference! Despite the weather change we’ve had such a fantastic nearly two months, but it is so incredibly nice to be home with our own stuff and being able to do normal everyday activities too...like laundry. Oh, so much laundry!
In February so far we went to the next town over, Appleton, where we worked with talented producer and videographer Marc Golde for the upcoming album. Have we said we are excited for you guys to see and hear all the things we’ve been working on yet!?
A HUGE thank you to everyone involved with the release of the album, to our friends and fans who keep us going with 7000apart every month. To all the people who pledged to our Kickstarter, we wouldn’t be taking the next step in our career without you. Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy the new music coming out this year as much as we do!
