Awesomest Giveaway Ever

So let me tell you a little story about a beautiful and talented singer and song-writer, among other things.

This lady decided it was time to make an album of her original songs. Beautiful, original music recorded in a beautiful place.

She chose the Christchurch School of Music Chapel.

She booked in the first recording session 6 days before her wedding. On 20th of February 2011. 5 songs were recorded that night.

On the 22nd of February 2011 the CSM buildings and chapel suffered massive destruction in The Earthquake (you know, that one).

The album is now an EP with 5 songs only and it is called ‘The Rest Is Elsewhere’.

The music is beautiful. The artist is Naomi Ferguson. She is my sister.

You can find out some more about her here and here and on you tube here (a number of the ones on you tube were recorded at CTV a building that no longer exists and took many lives with it on 22nd Feb).

If you would like to win a copy of her album leave a comment here. I have 2 to giveaway. If you would like another entry please blog, tweet, or email/facebook about the giveaway and leave another comment to tell me that.

A stunning album and probably the last music ever recorded at the location.

I am happy to post internationally. Giveaway closes Friday 14th Oct 2011.
