Happy Summer Solstice!

Happy Summer Solstice!

It may have appeared a touch quiet on the 'Burning Leaves' front of late... the truth is, however, that under the cover of darkness we've been very busy recording lots of new songs that we've written over the past year. It's an album (or two!).

There's been times during the sessions when we've wondered if it is us we're actually listening back to. We can't wait to share the music with you. There will be audio / visual evidence... when the time is right. Be seeing you, Indie & Craig xx

Oh! Winter My Friend... FREE DOWNLOAD

Hello friends,
We were thinking about which song we should record this year for the festive period... and then we thought "Let's write our own..." We recorded this song on the Winter Solstice. Craig wanted to record it with the windows open... so, we waited until it was cold enough to see our breath and had chilly fingers before we hit record, with only the glow of the gear and hot chocolate to warm us.

We hope you enjoy! Please share!

Click on the link for a FREE DOWNLOAD of our new song about Winter, recorded just for you :)xx

Love Indie & Craig :) xx

Stay tuned for tunes! Indie and Craig :)xx

Hello Friends,

she was 16 years old and still in High School.

We're very pleased that we have recently been reunited with the Cassette Tapes

FREE - Exhibition Road Show - London 2012

 Dear Reader,

We've dusted off the flight cases, the cat sitter is booked and we're looking forward to playing our first show for quite some time, at the Exhibition Road Show at 6pm on the 31st of July (during the London 2012 Olympics). As we've mentioned before, we don't like to play out much, however, when we were invited to play the Road Show we couldn't say no! 

It sounds like it is going to be a fantastic event and we're excited to hear that quite a lot of you plan on attending! Our good pal Jesse Stoddard will be bringing along her camera to document the show too... and we hope to bring you some audio visual evidence by the way of Youtube thereafter.

We will be playing afew songs from our next album too (which we are currently recording ... four songs done and we can't wait for you to hear them)...

The whole event is FREE...We hope you can make it, and if you do... please do come and say "Hello!"

Lots of love and all the best for the summer,

Indie and Craig :) xx

Hello Friends (especially those down under!),

We're over the moon that our song 'Midday Sun' is included in the new telemovie 'Beaconsfield' - a true story based on the dramatic rescue of miners Todd Russell and Brant Webb from the collapsed Beaconsfield mine in Tasmania 2006 .

It's directed by Glendyn Ivin and airs on Channel 9 (Australia) this coming Sunday, April 22nd 2012. The trailer is attached below along with a write up by the Daily Telegraph.

First Night of 'One-To-One' Webcam Sessions, via Facebook...

Following on from an idea that we had this week, we've just finished our first night of one-to-one webcam sessions via Facebook!

 (This was taken just before our first one-to-one webcam session which went on for just under 2 hours)

We take requests (in a private message from you) and then we play them live via webcam, to you, just for YOU (and your friends too, if you like!) 

This first night has been a really very lovely experience for us and we're thinking of making it a regular occurrence. We don't like to play a lot of gigs, unless it's something a bit different or special in some way (and we're homebirds!)... so to connect with our friends/fans/listeners this way is very rewarding for us.

We thank you all for your requests and for your company too! We'll announce another date soon and hopefully bring you a live video/recording. See you soon...?!

Love Indie and Craig :) xx

P.S If you use Facebook, you might like to read this piece by Jessica Stoddard, the first listener of the night.

The Burning Leaves calling... on Facebook Chat!

Hello Friends! 
We've had a little idea that we think might be fun....
If you find yourself with 5 minutes to spare and fancy listening to us play you one
of our songs live (using facebook chat via webcam) just send a message to let us know. 
We'll be available @ 10pm GMT on Tuesdays. All you need to do is send us a message and we'll 'call you' on facebook chat... it's NOT a group event, it would be one-to-one, us and you!
If it works out (from the technical point of view) then we might make it a regular thing. Be seeing you? Indie and Craig :)xx
