4th CD due out soon Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

I just wanted to tell everyone how excited I am for my next CD due out soon! We have 9 new songs, some of which we have been singing at concerts for some time now. Recording is close to being done. We'll be having a CD Release Party (or two) late 2012 or early 2013. We dropped the band name and this CD will be released under my name, Yvonne Hartman.

These songs have so much encouragement! Song like "Bloom" about blooming where you are planted and "The Road Not Taken" where you are right where God wants you to be and you cannot look back and regret the choices you made in the past. "Here I Am, Send Me" is an answer to the Great Commission for God to use us for furthering His Kingdom no matter where we are.

Check out all our new songs at a concert and/or look for them soon here on Indie Heaven, our website, and other stores online such as iTunes.

Creation Northeast 2010 Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Wow! What an awesome time! My favorite band was Tenth Ave North, which I got to meet and give them one of our CDs. Other favorites were Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band, and Franchesca Battistelli. It was hot and dry... very dusty. Sarah and I (Yvonne) went with Zions Church in Hamburg and we had 194 with our group. What an awesome time of ministry, worship, and fellowship. Jacob went with a friend and he looked us up every once in a while.

I got to meet a guy from Integrity Music and talk with him a little. I gave him a card with free download... didn't have a CD on me! Lesson learned. When I met Tenth Avenue North.... I had one and gave it to Mike. I also got to meet one of the girls from Superchick in the Youth Leaders Only tent and gave her 3 of our band Reminder Bands for each of the band.

After meeting Tenth Avenue North, I went back to the camp bubbling with excitement and we had a campfire. When the fireworks were over, we had a praise and worship time until about 1 AM. Thanks to Zions Church for allowing me to be a part of their group for the week!

That's all for now! Take care and God Bless!

Creation East 2009 Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Just got back from Creation yesterday and had a GREAT time! We went with my sister's church, Zion's Church. They've been doing this for about 15 years and they know how to do it well! We were right behind main stage. You could sit at the campsite if you wanted to listen to the music.... They had 177 people in the group. I played my guitar at the campsite quite a bit and I hope I gained some new fans. I didn't really know too many people before I went and met a lot of really nice people!

Maybe next year they'll do a singer/songwriter stage???? Isn't that a cool idea? Check out my facebook page for pictures... including from the Lookout.

New Band - name still TBA Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

I have added some people to my mission.... I am now.... A BAND!

Keyboards provided by Larry Adam: Formerly of the band VIH, Larry adds some pretty incredible musicianship to the band! The keys really fill out the sound. You can hear is work on the unfinished songs under NEW MUSIC here on my Indie Heaven site.

Drums provided by Jacob Hartman (my son): Jacob had been learning percussion at school for a while and started on drum set a few years ago. He has now joined the band and is doing a great job!

Bass provided by Sarah Hartman (my daughter): Sarah was taking guitar lessons for about 6 months when my "regular" bass player moved on to other things. I jokingly said to her that if she learned bass, maybe she could help me out. The very next lesson, she asked about bass, her teacher LOANED her his sister's bass (only for a week) and she started learning bass. We quickly bought her a bass and she's been doing very well.

We're working on an idea for a band name, but still not ready to release that, yet.... stay tuned!

CIA Summit Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Wow! What an awesome time! I was able to sing 2 songs in the Singer/Songwriter Showcase on Thursday and then we had two days packed full of information for the Indie artist! I'll be looking to use a lot of the information in my ministry VERY soon! Lots of ideas... so little time.

One thing is for sure... the future of the music industry is INDIE! With the age of digital downloads and the decline of CD sales, we have to adapt to the way music fans look for and obtain their music. There has never been a better time to be an indie! With the digital age and the Internet, getting your music out has never been as accessible as it is now.

So, look for some changes... they are coming!

Featured Artist & all songs will now be available Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Great news! I will be the Featured Artist on the Indie Heaven front page week after next, so keep your eyes open for it! Also, ALL my songs will be available for digital download right here on Indie Heaven! All songs should be available soon!

Friday, October 3, I will be at the Hard Bean Cafe in Boyertown from 7 - 9 PM. I'm not sure if it will be just me (an acoutic show) or if will have Steve on bass and Jacob on drums. Either way, I'll be singing originals, including my new songs not recorded yet, as well as some covers.

Speaking of "the band", John is moving on to a business in fixing up apartments, so he won't be playing with me any longer. Therefore, I need a new bass player. Steve will be going to Millersville (he's transfering from Kutztown U) in January, so I won't have him then. If anyone is interested and you live in the Greater Reading or Oley area, let me know!

That's all for now. God Bless!

Almost done Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

We're almost done recording! John Smyk, my bass player, finished all the bass parts last night. We have some electric guitar to add to a few songs yet and then we get down to mixing. The new CD will have 11 songs on it... a few I even wrote after I started recording (which began on December 10th).

Upcoming Shows:
The King's Academy will be having a Coffee House on April 12th at the school. This is following a worship seminar for local youth worhship teams. If you are interested, contact King's Academy at 610-926-9639. I will be giving two sessions, one on songwriting and one on recording.

May 16 - 18 I will be at Blue Rocks Campground in Lenhartsville, PA with my church, New Life Bible Fellowship. We will have a Saturday evening praise and worship time and we are in charge of the entire Sunday morning service. If you are interested in joining us, you can contact the campground... www.bluerockscampground.com.

August 15th will be the big CD Release Party at Marie's Hard Bean in Fleetwood, PA. The festivities will begin at 7 PM.

Hope you can come out and check out my new songs at one of these events!

Back in the studio Subscribe To My Blog (RSS)(Click this icon to Subscribe)

Well, I'm back in the studio tomorrow. I have 5 songs recorded so far with guitar and vocals. Tomorrow we are adding bass (John Smyk) and drums (Marshall Baker) to those songs. If there's time after that, I'll continue with recording the guitar on more songs.... probably no vocals, though. Today I am home sick with a cold!

Pray for a speedy recovery as I am at GRAVITY books.music.art on Rt. 422 in Exeter next Friday, February 15th at 8 PM. If you're free, come out to check out the new bookstore and hear some of my new music. I will have some guests with me - Steve Myers on bass guitar and Nathan Smyk on the bongo drum. (I know they are called something different, but I can't remember what they're called!)

Keep an eye on my Indie Heaven site for updates on the songs. I'll keep uploading as we finish recording sessions!

That's all for now. Take care and God Bless!
