It's Christmas night and I hope that you and your family have enjoyed the holiday season so far no matter what you celebrate! Things are going pretty incredibly post-tour and releases. I wanted to write quickly and update you on the status of the Kickstarter Rewards and to let you know about my FIRST ever full band tour.
As of now, you should have received free downloads of Seaside Sessions, Spring Song Vol. 1, and Some Small Way. The physical product for Some Small Way and IIOI/KOJI have JUST come in. Due to some production issues (with both releases), there was a delay in getting the records to distributors and then to me.
Unfortunately, it left me no time between rehearsals and family celebrations (and a nasty sinus infection) to ship these before Christmas. Now that I'll be leaving for tour tonight, I'll be bringing all the Kickstarter t-shirts and records with a list of who gets what. You may pick up (to save the environment) your Kickstarter rewards at the shows listed below. The rest of the packages will go out in the New Year!
Thank you SO SO much for the amazing support and your patience. I hope that I've been able to make you proud. Please get in touch with any changes of address as the packages will be shipping in the next two weeks. And see you soon!
Love & light,
ps. I hope you don't mind the changes in the formats for the rewards. The cassette has morphed into a CD and the 7" turned into a 12" full length. These changes, I think you will agree, are for the better! Here's the dates...
