I’m excited to tell you that The ishs/Allen Project have hit a milestone in the recording of our upcoming album Stories Under the Sky: we have finished recording! It is currently under post-production—the final touches to make it sound even more awesome. The core quartet of Chelsea, Paul, Ee Shan and myself have also been honoured to have woodwind maestro Lachlan Davidson on board to paint beautiful sonic layers in the album. Lachlan has worked with such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, and John Farnham among others. So, expect even more exquisiteness in this release.
My lovely wife Fety Aryani made a beautiful painting called Blue Sky, the same as the title of a tune that I wrote at the location depicted in the painting, that is Lake Marma in Murtoa, Victoria. The album cover artwork features this work of art. My favourite photographer Windu Kuntoro has also taken pictures of the band.
Now, the album can already be pre-ordered! If you do so, you will be instantly rewarded with a download of one its track called I’ll Wait Until You Arrive. It will be released on 17 August 2017.
