Hello, folks. I'm glad so many of you are still with us after all these (three) years of songwriting fun and mayhem. Yes; we're three years old now, and no, we're not dead yet. In fact, I have two new songs in the can and three in the pipeline for the month of October 2005 alone. Oh, and did I mention the new CD, "Best of Request - Vol. 2," that we're releasing today? (visit the RAS store to order a copy) I plan on getting back into the swing of things soon and releasing many more short, quickly recorded songs like the old days. I'm finding writing and recording music to be fresh and fun again, probably thanks to the lengthy, nearly year-long rest from regularly churning out songs that I needed.
I remember it now: it was around 4 AM in the morning on this day three years ago that RAS went live, and boy oh boy, the world has surely been the same since. I think most people slept through our last two anniversaries -- even our total site relaunch last year (I can't believe it's been a year since that happened already). But nonetheless, we've released a ton of songs to a core group of appreciative people, and yes, entertained dozens of thousands along the way. I'm not quite sure what the future holds for RAS over the next year.. perhaps a metamorposis into an entirely new creature? We'll just have to wait and see what happens. Until then, I hope you'll continue to support us as always. Thanks for everything, and enjoy the music. --Benj Edwards
