Lots of Good News
A bunch of good news to report:
1) I was on the front page of the Sunday business section yesterday as part of an article on crowdfunding. This project just keeps paying off! The interview for the paper reminded me again of how important you all have been to me.
I often motivate myself with the thought of your trusting expectations. See the story in the Statesman (and the cool shot they got of me standing in the creek).
2) I found someone good to mix the album, which is a godsend b/c it means I won't have to do it myself (which is fortunate, b/c I don't really have the expertise)! A friend of a friend - we'll call him Dr. Mordo - who is a musician and capable audiophile had begun mixing the tunes.
This is doubly-beneficial b/c it is making me finish. I'm still hoping to be done this month with the clean mixes so we can post tracks and let the DJs start remixing. I'll have the basic album done next month and am planning on sharing that exclusively with y'all first, (though the official release, with remixes, won't be till Fall).
3) As soon as the basic album is done I will be able to concentrate on producing the tshirts, drawings, and custom songs that y'all ordered. I will be in touch about these. Thanks for your patience.
4) I've been cooking up some big ideas about how I do gigs, my story, my niche... which I can't wait to share with you as this album comes out this Fall. For a little taste of what I'm talking about, see the little story I put together with a few drawings of how I found my sweet spot as a musician.
