And as Josh has mentioned in previous posts, this isn’t a bluegrass record, though it does feature contributions from notable grassers like Shilling’s bandmate Aaron Ramsey, Cia and Molly Cherryholmes, and Randy Kohrs.
To mark the short-form album’s official release into digital distribution, Shilling prepared a video of studio clips which he says was produced on a shoe string budget.
“Because this is a completely independent and self-funded venture, I couldn’t afford lighting, camera, and make-up crews when we recorded this CD. All of the video was captured on two inexpensive, hand-held cameras and I made this promotional, behind-the-scenes documentary of the making of Letting Go on my laptop using iMovie. No tricks or faking…nearly all of these video clips are the actual recorded performances that we used on the CD.
Thanks so much to everyone involved in recording this project and thanks to everyone that supports what I’m doing and music in general!”
You can find Letting Go for download at all major digital resellers, and autographed CDs can be ordered from Josh’s web site.
