On the Horizon: Karen Jane Does Some Songs

In effort to get roaring into a higher gear I present everyone with:

Karen Jane - Karen Jane Does Some Songs.

This will be a short, intimate, and very sexy exploration of the songs Karen Jane has to offer as of yet! It will be entirely in acoustic and feature the reverb of her upstairs attic room.

I plan on recording this session very soon, so keep your eyes on the site for a link!

Yours firmly,

Hello All!

Setting up the studio once again:

Tools of the trade:
+ MacBook, 2.2GHz, 2GB RAM
+ M-Audio FireWire Solo Recording Interface
+ Ibanez AEF-18NT AE Guitar
+ Fender Strat Electric Guitar
+ M-Audio NOVA condenser microphone
+ One spacious room

We'll be keeping it simple this time, using Garage Band to lay down acoustic folk tracks. I still have yet to get FL Studio loaded. It requires Windows, and even though I have a copy of Vista, I'm not sure I want to partition my hard drive with boot camp. I've been reading a lot about it lately and I might just get VMWare Fusion so I won't have to boot up every time I use a new music program. Too bad FL Studio doesn't come for the Mac.

Let me introduce you to two bands which hope to be apart of your life.

Simply the neurosis of Karen Foote's brain, tamed. A singer/songwriter from Washington DC. She brings to the music world genre bleeding compositions. She dabbles in everything from folk to electronic to spoken word. Just a few of her influences include: Ani Difranco, Mr. Mraz, and Radiohead.

For Science
for - [fawr]
with the object or purpose of: to run for exercise.
intended to belong to, or be used in connection with

science - [sahy-uhns]
systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.

Some of you out there believe the name of this band came from one of the member's current employer. However, let me be the authority and say that is not true. The name comes from the great show MythBusters. On one episode Adam and Jamie are using weather balloons for an experiment. When Adam releases one balloon he shouts out "FOR SCIENCE!". This simply was a really cool and geeky moment in history and thus the band is named for it.

For Science is the electronic off shoot of karenjane. With For Science you will get the "beep-bo-beep" and a lot of well thought out lyrics.
