The Midland Mirror published an article about the CD release in Friday’s Paper.

Since then several people have wished me luck on the CD release and said they read about it in the paper. I gotta love the local media.



Bringing music together with a CD and duct tape




Jennifer Harker: Special



As Canadians, we all know the many uses – large and small – for duct tape. But did you know it can even inspire a song? Just ask Sean McGaughey.
He’ll be officially releasing his first CD For the Sake of the Song on Sunday, Nov. 21 at the Penetanguishene Centennial Museum and Archives.

The OFFICIAL CD RELEASE is just one week away. Yesterday I had two performances: One at a charity bonspeil to raise money for the Mariposa Folk Festival, and the other at the Barrie Folk Society Open Stage. I sold a couple of CDs at each event, which was encouraging. Even more encouraging was the respect and support I received from other musicians. I sometimes beat myself up over my technical limitations as a guitar player, so it’s really nice to be accepted as a peer by other musicians.

Paul Bellows (http://www.paulbellows.com) is an Edmonton based singer songwriter and web-developer. We share similar interests in producing standards-based CSS websites, and songwriting, (although he is much more adept at both). His business, yellowpencil.com designs and maintains corporate websites. Paul is also a blogger. He frequently updates the blog on the front page of his website. He also has released 3 albums of witty, insightful pop flavored folk music. His lyrics are solid, his melodies are very catchy and his guitar work is great. His music is reminicent of early Elvis Costello. I particularly enjoy the lyric of Love is Working on his soon to be released 3rd album, Tape Deck Classics. We had the pleasure of hosting a house concert with Paul and Ben Sures about 2 years ago. He has released most of his music under a creative commons license and made it available for downloading from his website. Enjoy.
