An update on the Requinte Trio: you still have time to get involved with this amazing project!

Most of you know, from my past blog, that I recently became involved with the Requite Trio.  Here is the latest update from the  Trio, and everything is going great! In the video embedded below, I am listening on as the group hears the first tracks recorded in the studio a few weeks back.  Spending time in NYC with these amazing artists and being a part of the recording process from the first day in the studio has been a life changing experience! I am honored to be the Executive Producer on the Requite Trio’s new album. It’s your turn to get involved with this amazing project too!! Check out the update from Janis, Nanny, and John below!!

Dear Friends ,
Wishing you a joyous spring season – it’s a time for renewal and rebirth . Nanny,John and I are quite excited about getting closer to our final goal of “birthing ” our first band record.We have about 8 tracks in various stages of completion under our belts including some original lyric collaborations, some Jobim , some Brazilian favorites and one or two standards that we have rearranged “Requinte -style” Joining us on the CD are Leo Traversa on bass, Paul Meyers on guitar, Ben Wittman on drums, Joel Frahm on tenor and soprano saxes, and the Brazilian vocal group Banda de Boca .
One big joyful step forward has been the participation of our Executive Producer , Catheryn McKeever, who we welcomed to NY a couple of weeks ago and who was present at our last recording session. Janis had her over for a home cooked meal and we recorded a special cut for her in the studio .She has been a delightful and supportive presence in the completion of this project and we are very grateful to her. Throughout the next few months we will be posting other short clips of rehearsals and time in the studio which you can access when you become a participant and log into your ArtistShare account. We are back in the studio APRIL 15th and APRIL 22 we’ll be posting clips from those experiences.
As we near our goal, we still have spots open for Gold & Silver Participants. The highlights of this level are delineated on our ArtistShare project page. They included a vinyl listening session with Janis Siegel, a piano lesson with John diMartino,dinner with the band, and a food/walking tour of the West Village. To participate, click the link below: levels are, of course available and appreciated and we’d like to thank everyone who has already joined us on this creative trip.We could not do it without you .
For those who have not yet joined us, don’t miss out on a chance to experience something unique!Much love & light ,

The eyes of an artist….

Yesterday was national cheeseburger day! Not only do the Tag Team love of a good burger, but cheeseburgers hold a special place in the heart of Tag Team Prez, Catheryn. We all know Catheryn as our fearless leader here at Tag UR It! Inc. As our President/CEO, Catheryn inspires the Tag Team to always be our best! What some may not know about Cathryn TheRtist (as many know her in the art world) is that Catheryn is not only an entrepreneur and leader, but an amazingly talented artist with her paintings displayed nationwide!

“Look into the eyes of Catheryn’s paintings and you will see the soul of the subject.  Look into the eyes of this award winning artist and you will see why; she has the soul of an artist. 
She doesn’t simply recreate an image; she studies the image, garners the personality and the essence of her subject and brings these multifaceted qualities to realization.  Catheryn is the surrogate between subject and canvas.”  -Perry Steele Patton
You may be thinking “How does any of this tie in with cheeseburgers?”  One of Catheryn’s more recognizable pieces of art was created exclusively for Cheeseburger Restaurants™, “serving paradise daily at“.  Catheryn’s Princess Kamanaiwana Cheeseburger Oil Painting has been transformed into a Cheeseburger Restaurants™ icon! Seen on their website, on the backs of teeshirts and other merchandise, and and in many of their restaurant locations, this iconic painting shows Catheryn’s passion as an artist.
