Just Getting Started - It's Here!

JGSCoverIn 2015, in honour of the 20th anniversary of the release of my first CD, we recorded a project featuring acoustic takes on 11 fan-voted favourites, plus a new song entitled “Just Getting Started.” Originally, that project was only available privately as a fan download, but as of July 2018, you can get it here on carolynarends.com, as well as on Bandcamp, CDBaby, iTunes, and wherever you purchase or stream digital music.

How did you pick the songs?BackCover

Based on your votes and a highly scientific process. (Read more about what actually happened HERE.)

Can I get in on CD rather than as a digital download?

At this point, the project is only available for digital download. (Sorry, Mom!)

What if I’m an audiophile?

JGSSpecialEditionOur mastering engineer will weep for joy when he hears of you. The free download of the album is mp3 quality (the same formatting as music you buy on iTunes). However, if you really want to hear the project in it’s full sonic glory, you can purchase a Special Edition digital version that consists of … get this … 24 bit, 96kHz wav files. Go HERE to purchase and download these ginormous audio files. (The current edition of the iTunes app and most other systems are capable of playing music at 96k – you might want to check whatever system you are using before purchasing the files.)

Will there be a songbook?

You bet! We’re working on that, and we will upload it to this page as soon as we can.

What else can you tell me about the project?

And there’s an in-depth print interview with a lot of the backstory behind the album (and the past 20 years!) with Timothy Yap of Hallels HERE.
