Some Details on "Conspire To Smile "
This song is the heartbeat of the larger Conspire to Smile Project. Besides being the title track its special to me because its the first studio recording from all of the members of the original Strangefolk lineup: Jon, Luke Erik and me (Reid) since 1998. Its gotten our creative juices flowing. Its also "bejeweled" with performances from AOD's Dave Diamond who joins Luke on the skins & the lovely Elliott Peck, of Midnight North who is the featured songbird like female vocalist.
Our Kickstarter is off and running. As of Feb 12 we have 65 contributors, who have donated an average of $180/person for and collectively raised over $11,000 for Conspire to Smile
While this project is not about the money regrettably we need some bread just to make it happen. Please take a minute to check it out if you've not. It includes the new album from Reid Genauer & Folks entitled Conspire to Smile, an HD lIve Video of Assembly of Dust @Terrapin Crossroads (2 sets) and an Strangefolk Archival Release from The Palladium in 1999 (2 sets) along with a host of other Smiley crap. #ConspireToSmile
