WAILS ALBUM RELEASE
Alexandra Blakely recorded a 200 voice community choir for an album entirely dedicated to grief in July 2023 in WA State. The album “WAILS: songs for grief,” is inspired by Whales and the five gates of grief from Francis Weller’s book, “The Wild Edge of Sorrow.” ahlay is currently in the studio with Max Ribner and Todd Boston integrating the choir recordings into tracks that include whales, keys, strings, horns and ahlay's voice.
They are aiming to release the album in fall 2024.
We are actively seeking funders for the visual storytelling phase of WAILS. We are looking to form a team of funders who will back this second phase of the project. This looks like coming together for a few online meetings with ahlay. If you are someone (or know someone) who can support the vision for this next chapter. Please contact us!
If you are able to support financially and don't want to join the team, please consider sending funds via gofundme. We still have a long way to go.
