It's been a while since we've been active on our networking sites but the time has come. Our album is being finalized and we're extremely proud of it. We don't want to bombard you all with messages,links, etc..but we DO want to stay active to hopefully generate interest. We ask that our friends and family lend a hand in this. It's just a request..No obligations..We just want to ride this to see what happens. As always thank you all for your continues support!! Jason and Tiff Over alders
Tiff has written a killer new tune !!!
Let it out fellas. It's good for you. http://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2012/10/12/why-is-it-so-hard-for-men-to-cry/
Sometimes it's hard to find the words to express your true feelings on extremely sensitive subjects. Other times, it's best to just let those who haven't been heard speak.
We changed our name finally!!! Officially "Jason and Tiff" have grown up into "Over Alders". If you're interested ask us how we came up the the name.
We learned a lot since we recorded and released the FAUL EP. We were blessed with great reviews and our live shows were really well received.
During a conversation we were having, regarding what's next, Josh (Tiff's awesome husband) asked what would we do differently. The answer was simple: Work in a REAL studio with a REAL engineer/producer. Cost was always the issue but Josh seemed as excited about the idea as we were and he offered to be our "record label" and fund the project. We began working with Jackson Jackson in late November and we were so pleased with the first song we recorded we were inspired to write the rest of the album and name ourselves around the concept of the first song. listen to "Look Forward" !!
Changing our name was also an idea we kicked around for a long time. Instead of having two separate personalities we wanted a name that represented the personality of the project. The name Over Alders had been brought up before but it took us a while to decide on it because we were all so pissed off that the name "Modest Mouse" was taken already. Rachel (Jason's wife suggested Chic Antique"..it was a close second. The problem was that it made us sound like a new age 80's band. Over Alders seemed organic and sweet on the tongue. With Jackson's help in the studio we made our decision.
So far work in the studio has been fantastic!!! We're almost 3 songs deep and each process has seemed better than the previous!! Jackson Jackson is a pleasure to work with and we've had to up our game to make sure this album is something we're going to be PROUD of..We think you're going to Love it..
In the mean time I'll try to keep posting updates. Again, check out "Look forward" !! This project feels right
