Lovespirals are gearing up to release our first full length album this Summer on Projekt Records. Are you excited yet? You will be after you read our snappy new bio:
Lovespirals are musician/producer Ryan Lum and singer/songwriter Anji Bee. This duo’s lush, sensual collaborative songwriting embraces numerous styles and sounds, creating a unique blend which defies genre categories altogether. Beginning their collaboration in 1999 with Jazz Step Drum & Bass dubplates spun in Ryan’s DJ sets, then continuing on with a series of singles released on compilations for various labels (including Water Music and Metropolis Records), the band has traversed vast musical territory to arrive at their first full-length album for Projekt Records. Due out June 18, 2002, Windblown Kiss, is focused on beautiful melodies based around Ryan Lum’s dreamy acoustic and electric guitar playing and Anji Bee’s versatile vocal work. This first full-length album also features special guest musicians Sean Bowey, of Eden, and Doron Orenstein, of Frescoe, on several tracks. Slow-burning Blues, Bebop Jazz, Flamenco-spiced Folk Rock, Western-tinged Dream Pop – Lovespirals blend all these influences and more into heady, intoxicating mixture. Romantic, spiritual, and utterly heartfelt, Windblown Kiss envelopes one in a beautifully soothing dream-drenched world, timeless in quality and essence.
We’ve been fiddling around all month with a few different ideas for the new website, and now we’re whittling them down to come up with something really nice. Should be exciting to see how it all turns out!
Just wanting to say “Hi” to all our readers. Peace out!
We’ve been working really hard the past month getting our album art and promotional materials together for the album. Susan Jennings provided us with all the photographs, of which there were quite a few to choose from! I did all the design work, with some input from Ryan, of course. I thought we’d never get it together, but we’re sending off the artwork to Projekt this week, at long last!
I thought it would be fun to include a little band journal on the website, to keep fans up to date on all our doings, newsworthy or not. We’ll still have our official newspage with band announcements, but this will have a slightly more casual focus.
