Strange Hues News
10/9/14 - You may have noticed a few changes around here. The anniversary of the release of Huetensil's recordings of "Voulez-Vous" and "She's Not There" is coming up at the end of this month. That means that the licenses for the songs are running out. The distributor has begun the process of removing the songs from the different stores where they're available. Get them now while you still can!
12/10/13 - We've got a little news for you. We released a new Huetensil single back on October 31, 2013! It features Huetensil doing his own versions of ABBA's "Voulez-Vous" and The Zombies' "She's Not There." Check them out on the music player above.
These songs have been featured on over 30 stations so far!
4/25/13 - We've got a couple of things that we'd like to let you know about. First, today is the official release date of Huetensil's new E.P., Maybe It's Time! You can listen to the songs and download the E.P. from the music player above.
Second, songs from this E.P. have already been played on over 40 radio and internet stations!
3/14/13 - We just released Huetensil's latest single this morning! You can check both songs out by using the music player above. The first song, “Last Night,” is an alternative rock song about Leah Scapehouse, a young woman trying to figure out where she belongs in the world. “Maybe It’s Time” is an indie pop rock song that’s also a modern protest song. It chronicles the slow but steady erosion of rights and protections by government and asks the question, “Is it time to change things?”
11/6/12 - We released a new single a few weeks back featuring two new songs by Huetensil. You can check them out by using the music player above.  "Wake Me Up" is a punk pop song that tells a disturbing story of a person who appears to be in a coma.  Kind of an analogy for people who refuse to give up.   In contrast, the indie rock song “Fear and Longing” is more of an emotional piece. Huetensil tries to illicit turmoil, uncertainty and violence.
5/10/12 - We just released a new single featuring Question of Honour's songs "Know Go" and "Laughing & Crying." You can check them out using the music player above. "Know Go" is a dark David Bowie inspired tune that has maybe a little Ozzy thrown in. The poppier "Laughing & Crying" is a wistful look to a past relationship. The cool thing about this single is that you can get it free for the next 30 days from Question of Honour's BandCamp page!
Voting for the Indaba/Sony Janis Joplin remix contest ended yesterday. Huetensil's "Meltdown" remix of Joplin's song "Move Over" tied for 26th place with two others out of 179 entrants! Thank you to everyone who listened, voted, left comments and especially those who shared it with their friends! Thank you, thank you! :) If you missed it, you can still listen to it from Huetensil's site.
2/11/12 - We just released a new single featuring Question of Honour's songs "Addicted" and "I'm Gonna." Check them out using the music player above. Until the end of February you can get yourself a copy of the single for free from QoH's BandCamp web-page.

10/13/11 - If you weren't aware, last month a devastating flood hit Broome county, New York. Fortunately, no one was killed, but many people here lost everything.
Fifteen local solo artists and bands, including Question of Honour, have donated a song to a compilation album called The Raft which has been released through BandCamp.com. The money raised through the sale of this album and the individual songs will be divided between CHOW (Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse) and the Owego Revitalization and Betterment Corporation. The cost of the album is only ten dollars. Support this cause and get some great tunes to boot! Thank you.

5/17/11 - O.K. I just ran across a review of QoH's Apothecary yesterday that was published back in October of last year! I know, bad Hugh. It's so hard to stay on top of things when you're doing it all yourself. Anyway, it appears on page five of the October 14 - November 24, 2010 issue of UpstateLIVE. It's a well written review, though not the most positive that QoH has had. You've got to take the bad with the good, right? :)
5/13/11 - Voting for the Indaba TRON remix contest ended yesterday. Huetensil's "Fractures" remix of Daft Punk's song "End of Line" tied for 142nd place with eight others out of 891 entrants! At one point during the contest reaching as high as 118th place. Not bad for his first remix!
Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for it! :) Didn't get to hear it? Visit Huetensil's Indaba page to check it out.

3/16/09 - I returned home early last week from Colorado and then Michigan. That was a drive! Still settling back in. Dave, Ken and I managed to get the basics for the last six songs recorded.
