Thinkroot Records extends a warm and enthusiastic welcome to our newest artist Moira Waugh. Moira is a singer, lyricist, and novelist with a remarkably strong, rich, captivating voice. Her lyrics are nothing short of brilliant and her knack for storytelling makes her songs an enthralling experience. She is originally from Great Britian and now resides in Florida with her husband Mark Bass (also an incredibly talented musician who will soon join us on TRR!).
Moira Waugh's first track on Thinkroot Records is "Lully Lullay." It's a hauntingly beautiful a cappella rendition of the traditional English Christmas carol "Coventry Carol." It would be a gorgeous backing track to any winter or Christmas themed video or it could be taken in an entirely different direction as a chilling backdrop to a creepy movie or dramatic documentary. It's an exquisite first taste of what we all have to look forward to from Moira.
So hey, give a listen to "Lully Lullay" and let us know what you think. And when you use it in your project, let's us know! If we like what you've done, we'll share your work on TRR.
We are thrilled to introduce TheDICE to Thinkroot Records aficionados. TheDICE specializes in emotionally compelling piano melodies that are sure to be the perfect accompaniment to your videos, slideshows, animations, and adverts.
We just posted the first track from this talented Italian producer. "Goodbyes" is a lovely introduction to TheDICE's natural ability to sonically capture an emotion. Plus, he's a staunch supporter of sharing through Creative Commons licenses and kindly released this one with a CC-BY license!
You can look forward to many more songs from TheDICE. And they're not all instrumentals. He's got an extremely creative ear for remixes, too. Right now, he's preparing a rocking version of "Recall" (featuring vocals by Kara Square).
Give a listen to "Goodbyes" and let us know what you think. Please drop us a note if you use it in your project. If we love what you've done, we'll share it on TRR!
Today, March 31st, is the official release date of Team Smile and Nod's second album, "Mourning Time"! It's now available EVERYWHERE (iTunes, CDbaby, Rhapsody, Last.fm, Zune, Napster, etc.). Since it's been available on our site as a pre-release, we decided to make sure this release is still special for those who have already heard it. Thank you for supporting us and making this second album possible.
