Today I took a break from the demands of my day and spent some time in the garden. Last time we were in town I bought a rake, and I put it to good use this afternoon, clearing some piles of branches and pinecones and the garden beds and pathways.

If you’ve been following us on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve likely heard about our new home studio space called Wildwood Artist Retreat. We’ve been hosting a few house concerts and filming live video sessions with various musicians who come through Pender Island, and last week I had the opportunity to film a session of my own! The first video was released today, and you can watch it below. The two other songs we recorded are available through our Exclusive Content Project.
How it works is that you can subscribe for $6/month, and every month we send you some sort of Exclusive. This month is an audio download of three songs and a video, sometimes it’s just audio, sometimes it’s a behind-the-scenes look at the writing/recording process of a song, sometimes it’s a really cool merch item! We’ve really loved building a community around what we do, and this year is going to be especially exciting for all our subscribers as we get ready to release our new record. If you’d like to sign up or read more about why we’re doing this and what it’s all about, check out http://www.laurenmannmusic.com/exclusives.
I hope 2016 is off to a great start for all of you! How are you doing with those resolutions?

Michael Bernard Fitzgerald headlined the night, and Transit, Mocking Shadows, and The… Continue reading Get Your Groove On
We’ve been on many long treks and journeys since we started pursuing Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk as a full-time venture, but I feel like this past weekend has been one of the most significant journeys we’ve embarked on thus far. We packed up all our belongings in Calgary, AB, loaded them into a… Continue reading Lauren and Zoltan Move to an Island
