Here Comes Everybody
The Veronica Project CD
The most recent release yet. The Box and Sherpa were featured on local FM radio shows with KNRK and KINK. From HCE's work with the ICS (Immersion Composition Society), since 2004, HCE has been writing, recording, and presenting within a 24-hour contiguous period 6 songs per month. The Veronica Lodge is a sort of secret society of powerful songwriters who do this forced creativity once a month. It is NOT for the faint-hearted. Choices must be made. Recently, Michael of HCE spoke at the Marriott at the Splash festival (for computer geeks from around the world) about the process.
Get this CD now. Only a few remain. As with all HCE's CDs, the highest quality of sonic sweetening and recording techniques were used as well as professional musicians such as strings, guitar, and horns from some of the Northwest's finest and professional musicians.
In other words, just buy it, you will LOVE it. HCE is currently recording another CD for release sometime in 2012/2013 based on Shakespeare's words set to HCE tunes. Gotta love it!....ok....NOW....go ....buy a CD! We thank you.Don't Wait to buy on CDBaby
