The reality for any independent musician is that time in a recording studio is costly. I recorded this album in a total of 15 studio hours - including cello, drums, vocal recording, editing, mixing, mastering, and the whole shabang.
This album features tracks done in one take, tracks with no editing, and no track was significantly altered in any way.

Clara Shandler - cello; Timothy Van Cleave PhD - Percussion; Caitlyn Turcotte - vocals; Richard Dolmat and Digital Sound Magic Studios - recording, mastering.
Elliot Vaughan, one of my dearest friends and one of my favourite local composers, has completed his (first?) opera. He wrote for a very modest production: 7 singers, cello, guitar, accordion. Sidewalk Cellist - Clara Shandler
supported by 5 fans who also own “Sidewalk Cellist”
Bewitching cello "looper" mixed like Ed Alleyne-Johnson did in early nineties but not on New Age way. Here it is as closer to J.S. Bach and his Cello Suite than Ed Alleyne. But the method is similar.
A very relaxing performance brings ears to nirvana by sounding rich harmonics from her instrument.
Siting quiet on a sofa savoring these sumptuous melodies taking my mind out of daily customs. This is what I feel while I'm listening to this album. Emmanuel Codden
