So excited to let you know about Alesa Lajana and her Hidden History Album Project, a song-writing endeavour established for the creative exploration of post European contact Australian history through music.
I first met Alesa, at the Yungaburra music festival after listening to her perform works from her ‘Celtic Gypsy’ Album. My young sons were impressed by her brilliant guitar skills and enjoyed a guitar workshop she ran there to mentor young players. My daughter loved her singing voice.
With an impressive line up of special guest performers and co-writers, including Bela Fleck, Shane Howard, Amy Saunders, Sam Wagan Watson, and William Barton, Hidden History promises to be something monumental and significant in Australian music history. My family enjoyed the preview concert held at Mt Tambourine.
This crowd funding campaign is specifically to to raise money for Alesa to record her second album: a collection of songs written for the Hidden History Album Project. She is producing this on her own newly established Record Label Spirit of Country.
Alesa Lajana is the winner of a Queensland Music Award, officially mentored by Shane Howard, and endorsed by Maton Guitars.
Stay tuned as Alesa has agreed to yours truly doing an interview with her.
So looking forward to seeing the finishing touches of this project supported. So far so good, two crowd funding projects I love look like being supported, hope you my dear readers can help put this one over the line as well.
Share, reblog, facebook, tweet, with whoever you think would love to hear this album come to life.
