Hoyland concept album on the horizon and with a special collaboration! (November 2012)
Sketches for a 4th full length Hoyland album have begun. The 4th album which at the moment has no title shall be a concept album. “I have had plans to do this next album and it’s concept for quite some time. Now I am finally coming around to the idea of actually doing it“. The concept of this album is under wraps at the moment and probably won’t be revealed until near the time of release. This album shall come to pass after the Dreams Within a Dream album.
We are extremely excited to announce that the coming of this next album has led to a very special collaboration. The album will feature non-other than french mezzo soprano Marionita Paige. “The very first time I heard her voice I was in awe. I was just totally amazed by what she is capable of. She is a true talent and I am honored to be able to work with her“. Marionita began learning music at the age of 6. She took classical singing lessons when she was 14 years old and she is also a pianist and songwriter.
Dreams Within a Dream finally completed! (June 2012)
The 3rd Hoyland album which is titled “Dreams Within a Dream is finally complete. “This is a very strange anomaly indeed. It is a collection of songs that I began working on in 2010. I actually made demo tracks for 5 of the songs that appear on the final version of the album and just threw them to the public to see what people thought about them. The reason for this is because I had just come off from doing the “Upon the Mountain Vastlands” album and these new creations I wasn’t sure about. I needed some outside input into what I was doing with these songs. The response from those that heard the tracks was good so I set about making the album properly”.
