Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) July 1, 2009
Mima Rekidz is pleased to announce the new CD release from critically acclaimed touring, and recording artist-CEILI RAIN.
After five successful "label" projects, Bob Halligan Jr. (front-man for Ceili Rain) took a step away from the traditional industry route and has created a CD that not only encompasses his flair for lyrical creativity and instrumentation, but also embodies a spirit of community in bringing this project to fruition. Halligan took his idea of creating a "sponsorship CD" directly to the people that continue to support his mission-the Ceili Rain fans. Without hesitation, many (from all parts of the world) stepped forward to support the vision of this recording project.
I MADE LEMONADE was inspired by the debates, the troubles, and the love that surrounds this long-time songwriter. Halligan wanted the songs to be simple, without being "dopey". He wanted a bigger sounding record that listeners could turn up loud. He wanted this collection of songs to crossover, and to stir the senses of a variety of audiences. Although Ceili Rain records have always been upbeat and uplifting, "Lemonade" is sometimes a bit more overt with the spirituality. But, Halligan's penchant for remaining subtle and below the radar is never fully ignored! I MADE LEMONADE brings hope to the listener and a feeling of accomplishment to the long list of sponsors and contributors who have faith…in hope. In the simplest explanation, if you TRUST ON-LOVE ON-JOY ON you'll find quickly the answers you may be seeking…and no doubt you'll dance with delight when you connect with the title track-I MADE LEMONADE.
I MADE LEMONADE and all other titles in the Ceili Rain discography are available at http://www.ceilirain.com. The CD will also be distributed through CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, and other digital download distributors.
According to the CEILI RAIN website: "Ceili" (say: KAY-lee) is a Gaelic (Irish) word that means "party," specifically one with live musicians, dancing and general merriment. "Coeli" is a form of the Latin word for "heaven." Rain is that stuff that falls from the sky. Thus, Ceili Rain is a "downpour of heavenly partiness." CEILI RAIN is an innovative blend of pop-rock music with a dash of Celtic/Irish flavor and a subtle, but sincere, spiritual message. The band is led by front man, Bob Halligan Jr. As a songwriter, Bob Halligan, Jr., has had over 140 songs recorded by well-known rock artists, including Cher, Michael Bolton, Judas Priest, KISS, Kathy Mattea, Bob Carlisle, Rebecca St. James, Jump 5, Maire Brennan and countless others. He has published over 870 songs and his songs have sold more than 30 million units.
