We are celebrating the one year anniversary of our debut album, Not Their Business, which was released on October 22nd, 2015. We’ve had a truly amazing year, and we have all of you to thank for it.
The album came out of a series of events that started with us winning the Emerging Artist competition at the 2015 San Francisco Electronic Music Festival. The win came with $500 in cash and free studio time at the Bay Area’s Studio 880. We went into the studio in April of 2015 to record that track, Leave Me Alone. It was our first time ever recording in a professional studio, and we spent all day experimenting with different sounds and effects, ultimately coming up with what became Leave Me Alone.
We loved how it turned out and decided to keep recording at Studio 880 with additional money we raised on Kickstarter. In May and June we recorded three more tracks: Deep Water and Outcast were both tracks that had been in live rotation since late 2014, while Good Enough was an entirely new song written specifically for the album. In July we finished off the rest of the tracks: Anesthesia and Losing My Mind were re-recordings of older songs from 2012-2013, while Cold As Ice (featuring vocalist Ava Amor
This week marks the one year anniversary of our debut album, and we couldn’t be more excited! We’re celebrating by hosting a listening party at our studio this weekend.
We’ve come a long way since we started this project, and are still so grateful for all the support we’ve received from fans and listeners across the globe. From South Africa to Texas and everywhere in between, we appreciate your support more than you know!
Writing our debut album was extremely challenging, but also very rewarding. We spent hours upon hours working in the studio, losing sleep and forgetting to eat. But it was so worth it in the end.
As I sit here writing, I can’t help but feel nostalgic. I look back on that time as a defining moment in my life. By following my passion for music, I found a way to express myself creatively and connect with people around me on a deeper level than I ever imagined possible.
This year marks the one year anniversary of our debut album, “The Dreamers.” Starting out as a two-man band, we have grown to become a major force in the indie electronic music scene. “The Dreamers” has received praise from artists and fans alike and has helped us connect with many new listeners.
Our journey began in 2012. We had just finished college and were looking to begin our careers in music. We had been experimenting with electronic music since high school and were fortunate enough to find an early supporter in producer Jeff Van Dyke, who helped us launch our career.
Working with Van Dyke was an invaluable experience for us. We were able to collaborate with some of the best producers in the industry as well as learn from some of the biggest artists, including Britney Spears, Beyonce and Rihanna. They taught us how to be authentic musicians and encouraged us to stay true to ourselves.
We released “The Dreamers” at the beginning of 2014 and it quickly became one of the top albums on iTunes. Our fans immediately connected with our youthful enthusiasm and energetic sound; they resonated with our mission to create fun, uplifting music that would inspire people all over the world.
In the past year we have traveled across North America,
One year ago today, we released our debut album, called “Chronicle”. It was a pivotal moment in our lives, and it was a huge accomplishment for us. With this album, we wanted to tell the story of who we are as a band while also showing our fans that we love them.
We took a lot of time writing and recording the album. The lyrics were written by us as well as some of our friends. We didn’t have any deadlines because we wanted to make sure that every song was perfect before it was released. We recorded it over the course of two months, with each song taking about two weeks to record and mix. Our producer, Simon Russell, did an incredible job capturing the sound that we wanted for this album. We’re really proud of how it turned out!
The release of “Chronicle” marked a new chapter in our lives. It helped us connect with people on a deeper level than ever before. It gave us confidence that we could do anything if we put our minds to it! And most importantly: it allowed us to grow as artists because now there’s no turning back!”
This past month has been a crazy one for us here at TerraSonic. We celebrated a year since our debut album “Muted Memory” was released by taking a trip to New York to meet some of our fans. This trip was very eye-opening for us and it gave us a new perspective on the impact we are making as musicians.
We began our journey in the city that never sleeps, playing a concert in Brooklyn at the Knitting Factory, which is known to be one of the best venues in the city. We played to a crowd of over 200 people and were amazed at how many came out to hear us play live. To be honest, when we first started creating this album, we had no idea what kind of fan base we would attract, but we were so pleasantly surprised by how well it did with our listeners.
We then moved on to spend some time in Westchester where we met up with some friends and family who live there. It was such an amazing experience; the whole thing was surreal for us! After that, we went back down to Manhattan for the rest of our stay and spent time walking around the city enjoying what New York had to offer.
In addition to having a great time during our visit, we also met with
Today is the 1-year anniversary of our album release! We’ve come a long way since then and we wanted to take this moment to thank everyone who has helped us along the way.
When we started making music, we had no idea what we were doing. We got into music school and picked up an instrument assuming that playing an instrument automatically made you a musician. It didn’t.
After years of learning, practicing, and figuring out how to play music together, we finally wrote our first song. It was called “Summertime”. It had 3 chords and was about how summertime was for lovers. We were so proud of it that we thought it should be listened to by more than just the 4 people who heard it in our living room.
At this point, we had never recorded anything before, so we went online and found some random studio in Brooklyn and booked a session. That day was one of the most terrifying days of my life. I remember walking into the studio with sweaty palms and a pit in my stomach as if I were about to take a final exam on something I never studied for.
The producer sat down at the computer with his fancy headphones and told us where to stand while he set up all his equipment. He put up a
We are so happy to finally be able to share our debut album with you. We started making music for fun and slowly it became our passion. What first started as a hobby has now become a full-time job. The past year has been incredible and we have met some amazing people along the way. Our music is like nothing you have heard before, that’s what we strive for. We want to make music that will make you think “wow, this is unique”. We hope that you enjoy listening to our album as much as we enjoyed making it.
We are excited to announce that we are almost finished with our second album! It is going to be released in early December and will feature many of the tracks from our first album, but we have a few surprises planned for you as well.
We hope you are all having an amazing day and thank you for your support over the past year!
