I’ve posted about them before but this time it’s a giveaway! One of my new favorite bands, Her Name is Calla has offered to giveaway an MP3 sampler to a lucky Lost & Fawned reader! I know I’m always looking for new crafting music and now is your chance to win some new tunes for your studio! Head on over here to listen to some of their tracks or watch their beautiful video ‘Long Grass ‘ here.
Sophie (pictured above) was gracious enough to answer some of my burning questions:
I know your music inspires artists and crafters. But what inspires your music?
Our music is inspired by our own personal battles through life, and the support of our friends and family. We make music that is both a challenge for ourselves and a real pleasure to play – and I think that mixture of difficulty and reliefis present in our songs.
What’s coming next for Her Name is Calla?
We are currently promoting our first full-length album, The Quiet Lamb, available in the US and Europe in October, and the UK in November (see www.denovali.com/hernameiscalla for more details!) and playing our label’s showcase festival in Germany in Essen in October.
What are some of your favorite online shops?
A winner will be chosen at random on Sunday, September 19th at 9 PM EST. I will announce the winner right here shortly after. Good luck!
I know I don’t typically post on Sundays, however due to some changes I had to make sure this reached you.
Yesterday a job kind of fell into my lap. I have been looking very casually for something part time to help bring in a little additional income while I work on the blog and by chance some friend’s of Jared’s family were looking for someone. So tomorrow (yes, tomorrow) I start working at a screen printing and embroidery shop. I’m very excited, but nervous since I haven’t had a “go to work” job since I graduated.
I assure you, I will be doing my very best to maintain the blog in addition, but the next month will be interesting. I’ll be working on figuring out my schedule and finding the right balance between a job, the blog and of course relaxing. Expect some changes in my posting schedule, including the timing on giveaways.
