Michael Tomlinson has released the album “House Of Sky” after a successfully Kickstarter project.
Words from Michael Tomlinson:
So many people helped me to create this album by being a part of my Kickstarter crowd funding campaign last summer. That was a profoundly moving 60 days. I had no idea how much energy and creativity I would express every day of the campaign. It was emotional and fun and daunting and exhausting all at once. I felt very loved by people cheering me on and sending love and prayers and who took part. You can read about this on my Tribute Page and read the names of those who took part.
For now, I hope you will listen to the songs and soak them in. It’s a very long album, 70 minutes. Let the melodies and phrases and notes and pauses move you. Like you might allow a cool breeze to flow over you and take in all the freshness of it, I hope you will do something similar with my songs. They are more than songs. There is light there and love. There are insights and reminders. I believe with all my heart that if you listen when you are troubled, you will feel lighter. If you listen when you feel stuck, you will start to open and allow. And when you’re happy and balanced, it will just be more of a celebration of that.
Sharing my music: The more you share word of this album with others, the more you will help me to succeed in spreading it around the world. I hope to find many creative ways to actively promote this album for a year or two. It’s always new to he who has not yet heard it. If I can open doors by getting people to post stories about the songs, testimonials and recommendations, it will start to interest more people. And then you never know what can come. It could open doors for concerts all over the country and the world. It could create opportunities for these songs to be used in Television and Movies, played on radio stations and streamed on Internet stations. The possibilities are endless and that is how I am envisioning it.
Thank you so much for reading this, for visiting my website and for listening to my music. I hope some of you will feel moved to buy copies of House of Sky for friends and family. If you can think of how my music has touched you over time, how it has accompanied you through parts of your life like a good friend, just imagine that you could be responsible for bringing that kind of comfort into someone else’s life. House of Sky is that kind of album.
I wish you much peace in your heart and I hope you are delighted with my songs and the many, many facets and moods of House of Sky.
Your friend in breezy Seattle,
