Despite the surge in the Coronavirus in North Idaho I have been busy with various projects. I joined the Board of Directors for a Production Company called Litterateur founded by my friend Jimmy Cullors of Las Vegas. We have our first Board meeting on Zoom on October 8th. I have known Jimmy for many years. He is an ex-Detroit policeman. I wrote some music for his film projects while he was attending film school. I wrote the music for his first commercial movie filmed this year in Las Vegas called Mistaken Moves, which is in post-production edit right now. He has ambitious plans to produce films, books, a traveling kids music show and other projects and I believe I will be in a position to help with the music for all of these projects.
I have also been heavily involved lately in a film project called Across Bank Street – Pilot Part 1. I played a couple of speaking roles as The Grim Reaper and an emergency doctor. Lately, I have been driving to Wallace to work with Nancy Hanks, the Writer/Director, composing all original music for the sound track as she edits the timeline. Work on this collaboration is progressing smoothly. The business plan is to get an episode on YouTube as soon as possible to entice streaming services to pick up on the show and get investors involved in filming additional episodes.
We have finished mixing all the songs for a new bilingual (English and Spanish) music CD I am releasing soon called Amor, Life and Chupacabra Songs. (The inspiration for the title is Roger Steinmetz.) The CD features Cuban-American Ivana Cespedes singing my original bilingual songs and she will knock your socks off… she sings so beautifully. Some of the songs are beautiful ballads, some are humorous and others are philosophical about life. I have mailed out advance copies of the CD to my Patreon Followers.
Right now, I have hired a professor of art named Reinaldo Gil Zambrano from Venezuela to create the cover art and when his is finished with that, I will release the CD to the public, hopefully in time for Christmas.
Here are some of the comments from listeners of the CD so far, Naomi Bierman and Kiki Valera, Cuban Son bandleader “Kiki and I have just listened to your beautiful album and we want to congratulate you on your vision and your project!”; Orlando Sanchez, retired music producer at Disney World, “Your Chupacabra song was so funny. I laughed my head off. That Ivana, she sings so beautiful.” Roger Steinmetz, retired English Professor, “Damn, Bro, That song is red hot. I hope Orlando and your other connections pick it up immediately, because this tune wants to be on the 'Net, on the radio, and wherever people dance!“ Mark Johnston, Art Curator, “Pretty great!”
I have posted eight music videos on YouTube.com featuring Ellie singing children’s songs that I wrote that we recorded on a music CD entitled Sing-along With Ellie, which includes the lyrics to all eight songs. I have been promoting Ellie’s talents through my other projects listed on this post. You can watch the videos for free at the links below and you can order the music CD through my website at www.EdwardsMusicSite.com.
So, Happy Hallowe’en and listen to my song El Chupacabra y La Cabrota for a spooky Hallowe’en treat. (Orlando and I wrote the music. I added the lyrics.) I will attach it to podcast below so just press the <play> button below to hear the song.
