I've been in the studio for the last 2 months making this album. It has been a truly incredible experience with lots of ups and downs, I've learned so much about recording and about my own music, I am beyond thankful for being given this opportunity through your generosity to focus on music in a way that I never have before.
Right now we are finishing mixing and putting the final touches on everything, the record will be mastered in just 2 days, then a short run of CDs are being printed right away. For those of you that I won't be seeing in person soon, I will be figuring out mailing logistics for your physical rewards in the next several weeks hopefully (you'll be sent a survey via email to fill out your mailing address etc, when the time comes).
There are 2 album release shows happening VERY soon in Seattle and Spokane, May 16th and May 17th respectively. Pledgers at the $50 or higher level have guest list spots.. please check your kickstarter pledge for the number of spots.
ALL Kickstarter supporters are invited to attend a pre-funk dinner party at the venues from 6:30-7:30pm. This is the same for the Spokane and Seattle shows.
If you are planning on attending in *Seattle* and don't have guest list spots per your pledge level, or if you just want to support the show, you'll need to buy tickets in advance as they are GOING TO BE SOLD OUT SOON! Please buy tickets for the Seattle, WA show here: http://kevinlong.bpt.me/ . The lineup in Seattle is myself (featuring Passenger String Quartet), Hannalee, Courtney Marie Andrews, and Lotte Kestner. Doors 7pm, Show 8pm.
Spokane area friends: there are no advance tickets needed, The cover charge is $10 at the door. Again, some kickstarter pledgers entitled to free entry/guest list spots, check your kickstarter pledge level. Courtney Marie Andrews is opening the Spokane show. Check her out on youtube etc, she is AMAZING. Doors: 7:30pm, show 8pm.
