ORLANDO, Florida. , May 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- NewsBlaze is excited to announce the release of NewsBlaze writer and editor Ernest Dempsey's first solo Hail To My Fairyland. The song was released via the popular online music distributor CD Baby on Monday, May 23, 2022.
Hail To My Fairyland, goes back to late 2016 when Ernest Dempsey came up with the lyrics and musical concept, melody and rhythm, for a song that celebrates America and being American. While the production of the song was delayed for two years due to the COVID-19 crisis, it eventually attracted the attention of Ohio-based musician Kerry Kennard, who at the time was interested in doing some song for any movie.
Taking up Dempsey's concept and lyrics in late 2021, Kennard created a mix of styles to compose the music and also hunted voice talent to sing the song. Thus the emerging singer Anna was recruited to lend her vocals to the project. In the creative work on the song, Kennard tried something new.
"It is my first time writing a melody for voice, instead of instruments," he tells about the process of developing music for Dempsey's song. "While most of my instrumentals have contemporary arrangements, this song has a more predicable chord progression."
Hail To My Fairyland celebrates America and its timeless values of justice, love, and liberty. Patriotic in spirit and upbeat in mood, this song creates a theatrical experience with harmony of different styles, both traditional and contemporary.
"This is a landmark in my creative journey," says Dempsey about his first song going into production. "Since starting Twin Paws Productions, creating some music was on my mind and of my written songs, I felt Hail To My Fairyland was the perfect one." Dempsey says he also has plans for a video version of the song.
Listeners can stream Hail To My Fairyland on any of their favorite music streaming services off the HearNow page of the song.
"We are pleased to support the excellent work of Ernest Dempsey and Kenny Kennard with Hail To My Fairyland, their first production together," said Alan Cray, NewsBlaze CEO.
