I’m getting super close to finishing up the upcoming EP “Space 2″!! So excited to show you these songs! In the meantime, I have some other cool stuff I wanted to tell you about…
So thrilled to announce that a song of mine will be featured on tomorrow night’s (Thurs) episode of Grey’s Anatomy on ABC! The song is “Sun” from my latest release, “Space 1” – keep an ear out! I am so very grateful to have my music be a part of the show again! Hope you’ll tune in!
Last year I recorded a song called “Masquerade” – a Halloween song! I’ve decided to give it away for the “cost” of a Tweet! I’d be delighted if you’d add “Masquerade” to your way cool Halloween Playlist (which better have “Monster Mash” on it…)
Get it here!

SPACE 1 EP ON iTUNES NOW!
I am SO elated to let you know that my brand-new 6-song EP, SPACE 1 is out NOW!!
Download SPACE 1 right now via: iTunes … or AmazonMP3 … or subscribe to all of Atlas here!
I’m so very excited to share this EP with you! I had such an incredible time writing and recording this collection of songs – as a Space and Sci-Fi nerd, I couldn’t have had more fun pulling inspiration from the gorgeous planets that make up our Solar System.
I wrote a bunch of extended notes on each song via this blog post, if you’re interested! Otherwise, per usual, here are some general release notes to go along with SPACE 1.
Jordan Hill (played Drums made out of Auto parts on “Mercury”) – As a mechanic and an incredible drummer, my friend Jordan Hill came up with the idea of creating a drumset made entirely out of Automotive Parts! He made a video showing it off and thousands of folks were blown away! Not only is it an interesting idea, but it actually sounds incredible! So when I was writing Mercury, a song I was limiting myself to using only metallic instruments, asking Jordan to play his Auto-Parts kit was a perfect fit! I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! Visit his blog here.
Jeremy Larson (played Brass on “Mercury”) – One of my favorite people on the planet, and a frequent Sleeping At Last guest, I knew right away as I wrote the brass section for this song that Jeremy would be the guy to play/record it! He’s new to playing Brass, and just like everything he does, he sounds incredible! Hear Jeremy’s music here!
Melissa Bach (played Cellos on “Earth”) – Another frequent guest of mine, Melissa came out to the studio with specific instructions – don’t listen to this song more than a couple times. As with all things on Earth, I wanted the cellos to be reactive, more than planned. So we sat down with the song and recorded ideas as we had them! I couldn’t be more delighted with the results! Melissa’s a true talent and a great sport!
View the extended Release Notes here!
In celebration of the release of SPACE 1, I’m doing a Twitter Q&A! (My very first!) I’d be thrilled if you joined in the conversation!
On Wednesday (9/18), use the hashtag #AskSAL to @sleepingatlast and ask anything me you’d like, and I’ll begin answering straight away starting at 11:00 AM CST! Can’t wait to chat!
Thanks for reading guys! I’m so grateful for you and so hope you enjoy SPACE 1! I’m already hard at work on songs for the remaining planets for SPACE 2. “Uranus” should be hilarious!!! (Sorry, my inner 10 year-old wrote that.)
Tons of Love to you!!!
