It is December 30th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The artist or band getting the final 2012 article is one man from Port Elgin, Ontario and his project, The Ending To This Story.
If you follow Basement Entertainment, particularly our interviews section, you will notice that The Ending To This Story is no stranger to Basement Entertainment. Not only have we interviewed the young man behind the project, Lance Eckensweiler, twice throughout 2011 and 2012, we also booked him every chance we could.
Since he started The Ending To This Story in 2010, Lance has gone on to write, record and release a long list of songs. One of which is this week's 'Song of the Week'.
On July 30th 2012 Lance released a full length album, titled Prologue, to the internet. The album is comprised of fourteen songs he wrote and recorded in his very own basement. And, yes, the eleventh track on that incredible album, titled The Cost Of It All, is earning this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
The Cost Of It All was one of those songs that caught my attention right away. All of Lance's songs are so beautifully written, not to mention incredible live. But, The Cost Of It All was a song I could not shake out of my head after hearing it for the first time. It is a song that you will wake up singing...literally.
In August of 2010 I welcomed The Ending To This Story, along with his friend Michael Hansford, of The Raspberry Heaven, to Basement Entertainment to play some songs for a few friends, along with anyone viewing on Ustream at home. And, even then, Lance had me hooked.
If you have not discovered this Port Elgin, Ontario based project please give him a search on Facebook and Youtube. Lance has music posted on various websites throughout the pages of the internet. And, absolutely everything is worth hearing.
Please check out The Ending To This Story and discover this young man's incredible tunes. Not only will you be searching his music, and watching his videos, for hours, but you will get hooked, instantly.
So, check out Prologue, Lance's home recorded album for his project The Ending To This Story. And, get excited and continue to follow him throughout 2013 as he has a lot more up his sleeve. I cannot wait to hear more.
As if the mp3 version of The Cost Of It All, this week's 'Song of the Week', will not get stuck in your head enough, why not watch an amazing video of Lance recording the entire song himself. You can discover his true talent in the video he has posted on his official Youtube Channel, here:
See you next Sunday when we announce the first 'Song of the Week' of 2013. Until that time is here, however, please look up The Ending To This Story and discover the astounding music this young man is [always] releasing.
