Windhaven dropped to feature a few new songs, including their special tribute to Peggy “Mama Peggy” Chaney, as well as a handful of re-mixed and re-mastered songs from their 2011 release “When The Winds Blow”.
Wicasta talks with band-mate Victoria Sadler about their band, Windhaven, plays some Windhaven tunes, and features the music of Jartse Tuominen and Johnny Cakes & The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypso.
With no small amount of pride, we released Windhaven’s first full length album of original material, “When The Winds Blow”, this week. It’s been a long, frustrating road to get to this point. Writing and recording the music for the album was one of the most intense, nerve-wracking and ultimately satisfying projects I’ve ever been… Continue reading When The Winds Blow – Released
We just posted a new Windhaven song. Well, we posted it yesterday. As usual, it was put out there with much hope and a little excitement, followed by slight disappointment and much soul searching when it got virtually no notice from friends and relatives. However much I tell myself that I’m not going to be… Continue reading Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out
We recorded our Christmas CD, A Windhaven Christmas, for family and friends, and never had any intention of selling it. We still stand by that, but we thought that in the spirit of the Christmas season, we would offer the CD to anyone who wants it. It’s not for sale, though. Send no money. It’s… Continue reading A Windhaven Christmas
Windhaven just made the first major step toward recording its debut album, When The Winds Blow. That great leap came in the form of a new song, titled “Ten Feet Tall”. The song is based upon an ancient riff of mine (originally a bass line) that popped into my head while I was working on… Continue reading Windhaven – When The Winds Blow
I posted Windhaven’s new song, “Ten Feet Tall” last night. I’m really excited about the song. It’s a great “toe-tapper” (Victoria thinks it’s sort of Rockabilly), and should definitely be something we can use to build some momentum for Windhaven. I was a little apprehensive this morning when I got up. It’s always frustrating to… Continue reading Doubts, Goals And Feeling Ten Feet Tall
It’s an exciting time for Windhaven. We’ve just completed the first rough mix of our new song, “Ten Feet Tall”, the lead-off track on our upcoming CD, When The Winds Blow. It’s been a long time coming. For us, the song represents a rebirth for Windhaven. Our original intent, to be an acoustic band, has… Continue reading “Ten Feet Tall” & The Re-Birth of Windhaven
You may have noticed that our music player on the web site has recently been stripped of most of its tunes. There’s a reason for this. Simply put, we’ve been busy as mad scientists around here, and have so fundamentally reinvented the proverbial wheel that we feel like we’re taking a completely new approach to… Continue reading Splitting The Atom (One Song At A Time)
I’ve just wrapped up another version of “This Old Dawg”. This version was done with Windhaven, and features a more acoustic vibe. I’m actually surprised by the results. How is it possible to remove the Rock drum kit and the signature bass line and have a song sound even more powerful? This new version grooves… Continue reading This Old Dawg & Windhaven
