Final ‘Ten in Twenty’ track released, vote on album cover in Aug., pledge to project in Sept.
The final track of “Ten in Twenty: A Lexington Recording Project” has been released, and fans of the music endeavor can now look forward to the release of a vinyl album.
Lexington producer Duane Lundy started the project last year, when he started spending intensive two-day studio sessions with Lexington bands and musicians to capture a cohesive local sound. Read KyForward’s interview with Lundy from November here.
All of the songs were recorded at Shangri-LA Productions in downtown Lexington, founded by Lundy in 2006. Each recording session was filmed, so every track has an accompanying video of the artists at work, available on the project’s website or on Bandcamp.
Now that all ten artists have completed their contribution, fans can begin voting on the album cover. Starting in August, “Ten in Twenty” will begin posting photos from the recording sessions, and the most voted picture will appear on the front of the vinyl album jacket. Keep up with the voting on the project’s Facebook page.
In September, “Ten in Twenty” will launch a campaign on Pledgemusic —similar to Kickstarter but exclusively for musicians—and begin offering early access to the album and other special perks from the artists to supporters that pledge money.
