Check you out!

I was looking over the list of MARC7 members today (we're up to 86 as I type). Yooz are interesting folk. I see a world-famous software developer, a forester, a landscaper, an esthetician, gobs of musicians, a Grammy nominated engineer, two restaurant owners, interwebaholics, photographers, journalists, designers, family, friends and generally smart people. I suppose the relevant similarity is you're all music lovers or you wouldn't have jumped on board this life-altering experiment we call the Maktub Album Recording Club 2007 (MARC7). Thanks for your support and be sure to send other inspired people our way -- we'd love the support getting this album knocked out.  We're still on for May 6-16 at Avast! Studio in Seattle.

Kevin forwarded a nice Seattle Weekly interview of Stuart Hallerman, owner of Avast! Studio where we'll be recording the album. Stuart lists Maktub's Khronos as one of the "favorite records" he's made. Ain't that sweet! We're going to have such a blast in the studio making this record. Steve Fisk, Stuart Hallerman and the fellas we call Maktub (that's us). Is anybody out there excited like I am?

By the way, if you're a MARC7 member and don't yet have your picture up or want a different picture or name associated with what is now listed on the MARC7 page, just let me know. You can email info [at] maktub [dot] com.  I can also link your name on that page to your myspace page or a website of your choosing.  Rock on!

    Whoa! Numerology rules. Well, hopefully we won't get 86'd! I was just doing the math and if we make it to 200 we'll have all the album costs covered. But even now we're doing great -- and quite frankly this is exciting. Has anybody funded an album like this before? I heard the Carrie Akre & Marillion did something similar when making albums recently. Maktu had a KIP (Khronos Investor Package) but it was more of an album pre-order.
