Einar Olsen shares his Band-in-a-Box story with us:
2 days ago – a dream came true, that I couldn't done without Band-in-a- Box:
THANKS PETER GANNON AND ALL OF YOU AT PG MUSIC!
I live in a small and beautiful village in Suldal/Norway – as an old musician, i'm addicted to create music but with a long way to travel to find a real band and pro musicians, I've been using BiaB for years writing new songs.
Almost 3 years ago an idea was born: telling 100 years of local history of common man, using the american blues genre/folk music and the Norwegian language Nynorsk.
I'm not from this part of Norway, so I had to collaborate with someone – someone with local knowledge and writing skills – and not at least a voice that could carry a tone. I found that man, and we ended up with 12 new lyrics and songs for a show. Receiving great feedback on the songs, we started dreaming of recording an album – but how to make it – how to finance it?
Well, I have some guitars, an old Mac Pro and BiaB!
The RealTracks in BiaB are so musically well done that I started the pre-production. The pre-productions actually sounded so good that I decided to use BiaB-tracks, tweak them and do the rest of the playing myself.
Could this end up as a "professional album"? My local collaborator on main vocal and I started believing, and…
…and 2 days ago the final result was released worldwide:
Blå tonar frå Suldal
THANKS for making a great software and putting effort in the glory of music, so this album could be made!
Congrats to Einar and Terje on the release of their album 'Blå tonar frå Suldal'!
