How do you make an album when your farm is having a crop failure?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my latest project and I hope you will be interested. I've just finished  (Bruce Boege's Limin' Music Studio in Northport, Maine) recording my second album. The album title is "The Flower in Your Heart" and all the songs are originals.

Joining me in the studio were Maine musicians Phil Clement, Bruce Boege, Tom Luther, Jess and Austin Smith, Jeffrey Densmore, Janet Taylor, Larry Wade, Gregg TeHennepe. 
Despite the crop failure on our farm  and tough economic times the opportunity to record with Bruce before he moves to Hawaii. To my delight, we got all the songs done with Bruce, an multi-talented musician and engineer with a state-of-the-art studio and a long history of making music with and for everyone around.

In an attempt to defray some of the costs of recording a new album, I am offering a pre-order opportunity only to my Facebook and personal friends and interested on-line folks.

Here's how it works.

Pledge $30 and you get 2 autographed CDs .

Pledge $50 and you get 2 autographed CDs and your name in the credits on the CD cover


If I can raise $5,000.00, that should cover most of the costs.

 

At this moment the musicians have been paid except some ongoing money which will go to my guitar player month by month...and I need to play for the upcoming studio time for the mixing and mastering and the 900.00 to fabricate the CD at DiscMakers.Any money I may raise over that amount will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as a charitable donation. In fact even if I fall short I will still donate to the CF Foundation.

If you're not interested I understand! Times are tough!
If you are interested just respond to this message!

To hear some of my previous record 'Restoration" go to CDBaby or the FaceBook page "restoration Album and click on "music store" to hear free samples. OR JANGO Radio has a lot of my songs under "Mia Mantello Restoration" including some rough demos of somgs from the new CD.




Thanks for  your support over the years. Love & gratitude, Mia

L. Jaye Bell of WRFR radio did a long interview and played a bunch of songs from the CD on April 5. It is going to be available as a podcast if it is not already. I really enjoy her questions and comments. Her show is "Destination Maine on My Mind." WERU continues to play the CD and Friday they played two songs...People often come up and tell me they heard one of the songs on the radio. I have a lot of CDs still for sale, both this one and Restoration. People are enjoying giving them as gifts. Please contact me if you care for more and a special thanks to Annie Converse for her multiple orders!
