The Songbird 8 week challenge is officially completed…in 9 weeks. The last one took me a little extra contemplation. So now it is time for voting! I want to know what your favorite four are of the bunch, and then I will record them with the band. Drums, upright bass, and banjo will be added! If you missed the tunes because you aren’t on the mailing list, just email us at thejunipertrees@yahoo.com with “Songbird Challenge” in the title, and I will send you all eight tracks. 

A Songbird Challenge CD with all eight tracks and three mystery tracks will be available at The Juniper Trees show on Feb 11th at The Laughing Goat in Boulder, CO. 

Also, we will have a live video webcast of our show at a private party on December 30th. It will be free to watch, so stay tuned for more information about that.

Last, but not least, I have made a decision about whether or not to continue the Songbird Challenge. My decision is yes. I have never felt more inspired musically than making music specifically to send to people. My recording skills are moving along at a snails pace and I am really enjoying the whole process. I will start up again after the holidays, and this will go on…indefinitely, until I feel like I need another break! So sign up at thejunipertrees@yahoo.com to receive weekly songs in your inbox.

My inspiration from the Songbird Challenge is why I included the picture of the Aurora Borealis. Such a beautiful natural phenomenon. What is your inspiration? Where does your creativity meet your inspiration? What do you want to share with the world? Feel free to add it in the comments below, or email us. I invite you to a challenge, to share weekly/monthly what you are inspired to create. And feel free to add us to your list.

Thanks as always for listening,

Jenna
