FACTOR Grant sends Rhythm and Cello to the studio

FACTOR Grant Funding for Rhythm and Cello!

Rhythm and Cello was recently awarded a Demo Sound Recording Grant courtesy of FACTOR Canada and the Government of Canada. This program funds a portion of the production of a high quality, professional sound recording of one or more tracks, which may be used as a demo and/or released commercially as a single, or E.P.

Studio, here we come!

We couldn’t wait to get into the studio to record two original songs with producer Digory Smallz at Greenhouse Studios. Great times were had by all, and we’re looking forward to sharing the outcome with you! One of our recordings will be featured in CBC Music‘s SEARCHLIGHT Contest beginning March 30, 2015. More details will follow, but your daily vote through April will help to get us noticed!

While we were at it, we decided to scrape together enough funds to record a cover tune as well. We chose an upbeat song from a beloved Scottish-born Canadian folk singer, David Francey. John and I have both had the pleasure of meeting him and have enjoyed his music over the years. And as with most every song we end up adding to our repertoire, when we came across this one, we thought “That would sound great with a cello.” Luckily I happened to have one, and the rest is history. Stay tuned for their releases!
