Walking In Twos - PR Campaign
The village of Haduan is situated in the Southeastern foothills of the Pinatubo Volcano Range, across the Secovia Lahar River Basin. I had to walk a few miles through rugged dirt paths, and a wide river and a tropical wet dirt hike through the mountains to get to where they live. When I arrived at their village, I entered their little stone classroom and soon began singing to my acoustic guitar instrumental of “Walking In Twos” walking in between the tables and chairs reaching out touching the children’s hands. They smiled and their eyes lit up. In their indigenous language they yelled out how much they loved the melody, clapping joyfully and asked what did it mean. That’s when I knew I was on to something special. On the way back, a barefoot little girl Lilibeth walked by my side, and together we hiked down the mountain, crossing the unstable wooden roped bridge high over the river to the other side. We walked until we reached the paved road—the main entry of their village to civilization.
For the Aeta agree to record on my song “Walking In Twos” is a first time event for them and for the world to hear these children’s voices. With Stephen Stills support and performance on my new EP "Walking In Twos" we now have an even greater opportunity to share this song with the World. Join me in sharing this message to your friends and family so we may create a buzz so big that we will be able to build on a whole new level of education and care for the Aeta children. Profits will go to www.helpphilippineschools.org Thank you! Amanda

Yesterday I recorded a scratch piano track and today I will be recording the scratch vocal. The first step in recording. Sometimes the scratch piano vocal ends up being the one that stays in the song for good. It sets the tone of the recording so we shall see. Next I will reach out to the musicians I have in mind that will be recording the drums and bass. I can't wait to see what that will sound like. I have a really great idea and hope it will come through. Fingers crossed.
I will be in touch soon with more updates. Have a great day and stay tuned. Please continue to share with your friends. Thank you for your interest and support.
