I write, perform, and sell original music everywhere from Washington state to Nashville.
What's your vision?
This music album is in the Americana/folk genre and will be sold online (digital platforms like apple and spotify) and at my shows. Possibly made into vinyl. I would like a front cover and a back cover. This is my 6th album, but my first album that I will be putting a lot of promotion into (sort of like my coming out album). In the Americana world of album design, simple, vintage, and prestigious seem to be the trend. Front: - I like the look of some sort of a simple, clean border (maybe like a faded black). Words: "The Waiting Room" and "by Alex Mabey" in white-ish handwriting (either on the picture or on the frame. Again, these are just initial ideas I had, but feel free to be creative. Back: can be faded black with the white-ish handwriting of the songs. UPDATE for inside CD: for the inside of the album cover, I think I want it white with light yellow/green moss colored (to match with the green in the photo) of some sketches I have. I would like to have the sketches (below) pasted or copied somehow onto the inside CD. If you know how to draw or have the time, WONDERFUL. These were sketches I drew while writing the songs. I want them to look organic, not manufactured. Again, if you just want to copy what I already have, no problem. I'm sure photoshop will let you do that. Optional: you could also do a version where the background color is light moss green and the sketches are white. If you end up loving something totally different and it doesn't sound like this, I may just love it too! Thank you so much for helping with this! Find me on Instagram if you want to hear what some of the songs sound like to give you more inspiration (@__alexmabey).

The album is called "The Waiting Room" and it is about my decade long journey of autoimmune illness and the story of my failed marriage and how I left it. So many things that people this day and age are experiencing. I want this album to "sit" with people in their waiting rooms they may be in currently, before the transformation or the miracle they're hoping for. I want it to see people for where they are at: the pain, faith, hope, confusion, anger, and guide them in waiting while still choosing love. Love for themselves and anyone it's affecting.
