Oh, it is finally happening! The official Iowa CD release party concert! HOORAY!
I’ve had a few people be a little confused, asking me, “Didn’t you already release your CD?” The start of the longer answer is that there have been waves of different kinds of releases.
As you folks know, I got the discs in August and have been sending them out and hand-delivering them to everyone who pre-ordered through Kickstarter (allowing me to actually create those discs!! THANK YOU again and again!).
Then on November 13th I released it online everywhere, like iTunes and Amazon and CD Baby, etc, so folks who missed out on the pre-order could now get their own copy, or download or stream the songs. (Search for "Heather Miller Anchor" on your favorite digital music site, and don't be confused by the other Heather Miller who pops up, this is indeed my first release!!)
Coming up this Friday, November 30th is the first time I will play these songs on stage with a band since recording the CD! Even during recording I never had all the instruments in the same room at the same time, so this is a big exciting deal for me!
This is kind of like breaking the champagne bottle on the boat and sending it out to sea for the first time. I have lots of little plans and ideas that I shall leave a surprise for now (especially in case I don’t have time to do all of them!). The most important thing is there will be a band (Lauryn Shapter, Dennis James, Greg Holland and Sarah Brooks!), there will be CDs, stickers and a select number of whales, guitar string earrings, cards and such for sale, and it will be a party! Hooray! Hope you Iowa people can make it!
Cafe Paradiso, Fairfield, IA

P.S. I still very much plan to have an Austin release party with a band too, sometime in early 2013!
P.P.S. If you haven’t gotten your Kickstarter reward yet, I have not forgotten you, it very likely is already signed and on my desk, just waiting on a few loose ends left there, or in my bag, ready to hand over when I see you. If you are worried, drop me a line! I am super happy to send you a download code if your reward is not quite ready to ship!
