An old song gets a new recording (and video!)
Upon returning home from my trip to Iowa and listening to the album on which I've been working for near on 5 years, I found that I actually kind of enjoyed it.
Must mean that, like many nerve-addled parents, I'm ready to kick its teenage ass out of my house...and, preferably, into your ears.
That doesn't sound right.
So, how do I actually do that. CDs? digital downloads? How can I get your money in exchange for, like, a few songs? Pony express? Spam mail? Dropbox?? Snapchats of me mouthing all the words??? Phantasms, apparitions, hobgoblins??? Let me know what you (or Jesus) might do in that kind of situation. Wait, I think I know what Jesus would do.
You could probably just paypal me a few bucks in exchange for an album of music that I slaved over for years -- years during which I gave my life over to the evil forces known as songwriting, years filled with the crippling inability to determine what was best for myself, years that I will never get back....yeah, probably paypal would work for that.
Don't do it yet because I need to get this thing all spiffed up before it winds its gnarled, circuitous path into your grubby, little appendages.
All I'm trying to say in this moment is that I'm proud of what I've done and I'm excited to share it with you all real soon.
PS probably just put it on bandcamp
Today I released a collection of singles that had been released separately throughout the years 2011-2017.
If you've been following me at all in the past 6 years then you've probably heard a lot of this stuff before.
BUT, if not...well, then, steel yourself for my pitch:
It's got songs about aliens, multiverses, post-apocalyptic christmases past, autobiographical prophecies, world record holders of parachuting feats, the Voyager satellite's journey into interstellar space, boredom, hometown memories AND this album has even invented a new genre: intergalactic space funkTM! THIS and MORE!!! maybe.
Act now! Supplies are unlimited and going fast. I'm not even going to make you move your eyes up to that first link, so...GET IT.
If you happen to be in Jefferson, Iowa for the solar eclipse today come on down to the square for a short concert of weird sounds to accompany the weird sights (granted the clouds part to give us all a glimpse of the event)! I'll be playing the Mahanay Bell Tower a 47 bell, 168 foot tall carillon originally built in 1966. Then, on Friday of this week, I'll be playing a full show at Prairie Blue. Doors at 7:30, show at 8. No cover - all ages. Come out and support local live music!
