My New Album
I’m planning to record a new album, and I want to invite you along for the journey again.
Some of you have been down this road with me before, and as a result of your support, we were able to make the “Ode to Thinking” album together. “Ode to Thinking” and my music also found a home at Compass Records in Nashville. Now the journey begins again as I’m partnering with PledgeMusic to make my new record, and I know how lucky I am to be able to collaborate with you and ask you to be part of the process. I’ve been writing a lot of new songs over this year, although unlike times in the past, you have not heard most of them yet. The plan is to record right after the beginning of the new year, and, with your help and encouragement, you will hear the new music sometime early next summer.
As you may know, over the past seven years, I have released a few EPs, three full albums and a poetry book. I’m about to publish a second collection of poetry, and to make the arrival of the new poetry book really special, I’m recording a selection of readings from the book where I will also talk about the origin of some of the poems. You will only be able to get this recording if you pre-order the book through Pledge before it becomes available through other retailers.
We’ve created some exciting new offerings, but no matter what pledge you make, you will receive a download of the new record on the day it’s released as well as regular updates and behind the scenes reports during the making of the record so that you can truly experience your involvement. You can see and access all the new merchandise on the Pledge page, and there will be more added as the Pledge campaign picks up speed.
For those of you who have discovered my music for the first time as the result of PledgeMusic, welcome, and I hope you enjoy what you’ve heard so far. For those of you who have been there with me and for me over these years, I thank you so much for your commitment and support. I hope you all will join me on this journey to make what I plan to be a very special new record. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful team behind me, and I look forward to doing you proud.
It’s going to be another really good year, especially because I have all of you in my corner, and I can’t wait to share every step along the way with you… When I get in the studio, I’ll give you regular updates on never heard before songs and the mayhem and drama that goes hand in hand with making an album.
Thank you all. Please help spread the word and keep doing what you’re doing.
All my thanks,
