The eleventh solo album by Thomas Theodore Welborn, titled, 'Children of the Apocalypse' will be released on Feb. 15, 2021 via RouteNotes music distribution service to iTunes, Spotify and most digital music retailers and streaming services. This album features all new original pieces, all composed, performed, produced and recorded by TTW at his home studio near Auburn, Ky.
My talented and beautiful wife Sharon has greatly helped in this production, and even recites the lyrics to Satyagraha on this release. All tracks were written and recorded between 9/23/2020 and 1/23/2021.
The pandemic and political pandemonic we have been suffering now looks to be waning, as vaccines and elections have brought new hope for better days. Hallelujah!
The images on the front and rear of this CD were captured by myself from our front yard in rural Logan County, Kentucky, during the "Great Conjunction" of Jupiter and Saturn Dec. 20-22, 2020. I used a "point and shoot" Panasonic with a 50X zoom on a tripod. The times we live are full of signs and portents of things to come. Three and a half years ago the path of maximum totality for the 2017 Solar Total Eclipse passed directly over our house, and the inner images within this CD I took from our back deck.
The new songs and compositions on this, my 11th solo album, reflect some of the mystery we encounter in our daily lives, as well as the strange times we witness as travelers on a journey to an unknown destination.
