AMAZING THANKS TO YOU + SEVEN MORE DAYS!
Wow wow WOW! I posted my last update on the 21st and literally 10 minutes later you all helped me REACHED MY GOAL of $3,300! I am floored and thankful to you all for the big, big, BIG support you all have shown me and my music! I almost can't believe it ... I am just TICKLED!
I went back to the recording studio last night after a long hiatus and was there til about 1:30 in the morn ... my rockstar manfriend Kyle Maclean from the band American Rebels came in and overdubbed some guitar riffs and I messed around with a toy glockenspiel on a song ... 2 tracks are pretty much mixed and the rest just have to be cleaned up with a few harmonies here and there. Then, hopefully in mid June to stay on schedule, off it'll go to Noiseland, a local Minnesotan CD manufacturing company, to get the record pressed. WOO HOO!!!
I'll be happily busy all of July writing thank you notes and practicing with the band (hopefully -- there are still SEVEN DAYS LEFT before this whole deal is finalized)!! so I won't be playing that much before the CD release - I'll tell you those details in a second.
And WHOA! There are still seven days left on this whole sha-bang, so if you know anyone who'd like to pre-order or have a house concert, please spread the word. Holy cow!
FIRST - A quick correction - I AM NOT performing at the Thirsty Pagan in Superior, WI tonight, 5/25, -- I had made a scheduling error! Sorry if you were planning on attending that show! Catch me in Superior on July 3rd at the Red Mug instead with Alex Cartwright. You've got the night off now, my friends!
