ZOMG, Gayleen Froese
introduced me to her not-quite-filk original music several years ago (not quite filk = a lot of it is inspired by works of fiction in the true sense of 'inspired by' meaning if no one told you "this is Vince talking about Stuart," you'd never know) by way of the song Sparrows
, for which I have lost none of my adoration, and we shared frustration over her apparent disappearance from the web and the difficulty of finding legal copies of her albums.No longer, yay!
There are samples of the music from all of her albums, and she's even provided a free download of the entire Sacrifice
CD (on which Sparrows
is located), which only increases my estimation of her rockingnessicity.
Shut up it is too a word OMG.
(I have notjo
over on Journalfen
to thank for this info, as Gayleen is one of the writer/producers of a new SF/F audiodrama called Orphans
which I've downloaded but have yet to actually listen to. I'm getting the impression from the original rec that there is slashiness, or at least coming-out themes, so if you know me, you know I'm there.)
