It's said that birthdays come with surprises, and carpe carmina's 2nd anniversary is no exception to that saying. In the course of promoting 'carpe carmina celebrates' two bands reached out to me on twitter and offered to help make the birthday celebration an even more memorable one. Which is why you are in for yet another musical treat: Liberation Of Man decided to perform a new song of theirs called 'New Crown', one that won't be officially released until late 2015, and Raikes came up with a wonderfully sensitive and alluring acoustic take on a new song of theirs, called 'Fault'. Birthdays are lovely, aren't they?!

Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony?
- Leonardo DaVinci
It's harmony that your soul and mind embraces again when listening to music. As sound surrounds you, only some melodies firmly resonate with you, get an immediate emotional response - whilst their approach is a smooth and soft one, whilst they slowly, carefully but steadily cling to you, these melodies eventually grab you with an intensity and force that overwhelms, that fully absorbs and stirs. It's these very melodies that are in chime with your mind and soul, it's music that leaves an imprint on your being and mesmerizes ... music that charms.

It's been an eventful and exciting journey, a wondrous, delightful and compelling venture, a stirring and cheerful, a sometimes nerve-wracking and consuming yet always rewarding and satisfying voyage; milestones have been reached I never imagined to be met when this 'literary undertaking' began, new paths have been taken, traditions have been found and carried on, music has been embossomed, enjoyed, praised and shared. Its audience, carpe carmina's readership grew alike, and witnessing the progress of artists featured, seeing the amazingly positive response to their music, to my musings warmed my heart and made me proud contributing to a cause that is not only dear and important to me, but also worth taking a stand for - effort, time were invested, passion and words were set free in order to get promising and creative indie music heard, the songwriters and composers, the artists behind those musical gems acknowledged.
