Well folks, this is it, the final kickstarter update. I hope you all have been enjoying the final product. There's still a handful of you out there who have yet to receive your hard copies, but do not fear, they're being shipped out today and tomorrow, so you should have them by the end of the week.
If you’re curious, the next step for me is to get connected in Pittsburgh and start playing shows wherever I can. So for you local Pittsburghers, keep checking in at joelansett.com or at the Joel Ansett Music Facebook page to see if any shows are coming up. I’ll do my best to keep you all informed. I’m also secretly trying to plan a little Spokane, Moscow, Seattle tour in late March of 2013. There’s a whole lot of details that need to fall into place there, it might end up being a literal “Living Room” tour and we’ll just have musical get togethers in someone’s large living room; we’ll see, but I am going to try and make it happen. So, all you West Coasters, keep checking the website and Facebook page for any developments there.
As far as other publicity goes for this EP, you all really determine how much this thing spreads; so share, share, share away and we’ll see how far this thing can take us!! Once every two weeks I’ll put a song from the EP up on YouTube and we can try to create a bit of a social media splash each time I do that. That’ll give us a couple months of using this EP to reach a wider audience online. Beyond that it’s up to me to start getting connected and playing shows in Pittsburgh. That’s the plan there! HERE WE GO!
And lastly, I couldn’t leave you all without saying one last THANK YOU. Without you all, I wouldn't have an EP. It's as simple as that. Thank you so much for supporting this little project. I really can’t even believe we did it!!! I'm excited to see what's next in this music chapter of my life. I don’t know the ending, but I know the Storyteller is good, so the ending will be as well. Maybe we're just at the beginning, maybe this EP will lead to some awesome opportunities in the music business; or maybe this is the end of the chapter, and these songs can be enjoyed by friends and family for years to come. However the story ends, having this EP has made the story better, and for that I have YOU ALL to thank.
Onward & upward we go!!!
