Behind Your Eyes Acoustic Version

This was one of the exclusive Kickstarter acoustic videos, but since the campaign is over, I wanted to share it. I’m still learning to sing and play guitar at the same time (my guitar playing husband was supposed to do it but he was on tour).

And the Winners Are…

*Drum roll please*

Habojspade with “The Northern Wind” – this title was actually submitted for a previous contest, but I found it in my database and really liked it

Ariella with “Le Fin d’Hiver” – I know it isn’t exactly your title, but I liked the two of your suggestions together.

GiniBArtist with “Melancholy Minimalism” – Thanks for that great suggestion 😉

My father with “L’Appel au Soldat (the Battle)” – He also named “The Lost Voyage” on my previous EP. Apparently he’s just better at choosing titles than me.

Vierzonfrance with “Le Papillon et Le Tourbillon” – Also a slightly modified version of what was submitted, but the suggestion inspired the full title.

So now I will share a couple of my intermittent titles for the songs for a good laugh.

“Le Fin d’Hiver” was originally called “Mozart Takes Flight.” The style was somewhat of a tribute to composers from that era, but it also reminded me of a flying scene in a movie, hence the title. “Le Papillon et Le Tourbillon” was originally called the “The Cowboy Song” because the string parts made me think of, you guessed it, the Old West.

If you are one of the winners, please make sure you send your email information to shannonk@shannon-kennedy.com so that I can send you the songs!

Win my New EP By Picking the Name of a Song

Hey everyone, I’m having a little contest. For the last album I had one song I offered for free if someone chose a title for it. This time I decided to open it up a little bit and let you pick pretty much every title. I have also made the prize better – instead of getting just one song, you get the whole EP.

So what do you have to do? Watch the video, pick one of the five songs and write your title in the comments. And don’t worry, you can pick more than one song and make more than one title suggestions. I’ll announce the winners early next week.

Have fun! I can’t wait to read your suggestions!
