1/5/12 Happy New Year! I don't think I've ever been this excited about an upcoming year, and you guys are the reason. I can't say thank you enough, (I think that was #437) for all of the support I've been getting. I absolutely can't wait to start recording, and I don' think it could have come at a better time. This year will hopefully bring me close enough to play these songs live for a lot of you. I have shows planned in a bunch of fun places like Italy, England, Germany, France, and plans to play in a bunch of other places both overseas and stateside. ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!!!!
12/11/11 It's like having a beautifully wrapped present under my Christmas tree. I've picked it up and shaken it, and I know exactly what it is, and all I wanna do is open it and start playing with it, but I have to wait till Christmas morning, which in this case is Jan. 9th!
If I had known that you guys were so punctual and fast-acting I would have only made this campaign a week long and then I'd already be in the studio recording! Unfortunately, we can't shorten the term once it's already been launched, so I have wait just a bit before I can go make an album for which I will be forever indebted to my fans.
I've just posted update #2 which is a little behind the scenes look at our video... I hope you guys enjoy it, and laugh almost as much as we did making it! I've got quite a few more ideas for updates and things, so stay tuned!!
12/1/11 WOW. We passed the goal I thought we'd need 45 days to reach in 4 days! I'm working on a t-shirt design that properly (and probably humorously) commemorates this whole process. I'm also getting ready to do a "director's cut" of the video... that should be fun. ;) If this thing keeps going, I'd love to add record release parties in NYC, maybe Chicago or Dallas? If things get even more crazy, maybe I'll get the team back together for a music video...
I just got home from playing shows in the UK, Germany, and Austria, and I'm very inspired! I've got a bunch of new songs I'm excited to go in the studio and record. It will be my third album, and I'm hoping the best yet. My goal is to get this new album printed and ready for next spring/summer's tours, where I've got some shows lined up in some amazing places like Rome, Paris, and multiple cities in the UK and Germany.
I've been working with some amazing musicians here in LA, jamming, writing, and learning quite a bit in the process. I feel like I've really found a great direction for the new album and I can't wait to get it all down for you guys.
Lastly, I can't even articulate how much I appreciate my fans, if you've ever been to one of my shows, I hope I did a good job of relaying that. If there's anything left over after making this album, I'm going to use it to throw an awesome party (maybe two? one in LA, one in London?) for you guys, where I invite some of my good friends to help me launch this new album!
