Just a quick note to say that I'll be recording the new album on December 16, 2013. As you all know I had to put the whole project on the back burner after Super Storm Sandy flooded my home. The album will be released sometime in early 2014 and as soon as it's complete and ready for release I will personally take it upon myself to send you your rewards. I want to thank all of you for your support & patience.

Recording December 2013 !

1 comment

Hello Everyone: First of all thanks for your patience in the delay of the project which was supposed to be released this year 2013. As you know my home got flooded by Super Storm Sandy and we are just finishing the restoration nearly 8 months later!

I plan on recording this album in December of 2013 and you will all receive the rewards promised. I am truly sorry for the long delay but this was something totally out of my control.

Very Best Regards,

Mark Elf


Update #5

Mark Elf - Super Storm Sandy

Comment

Dear Backers:


My family and I were hit by Super Storm Sandy with 3 feet of water flooding our home. 

The house is uninhabitable and will likely be that way for months to come. We are currently staying with a family member.

I had planned on recording the new album on December 17, 2012 and release sometime in early in 2013 but at this point I'm not sure when all this will take place. I have so many domestic issues to deal with that I can't even think of music. I was out on tour when this all happened and had to come home and cancel the rest of my tour.

Please know that your contribution to my kickstarter campaign is safely tucked away and will be used for the purpose it was intended for. I can't say at this point when I'll be able to record the new disc but I will keep you all informed as the months go by.

Finally I want to thank each and every one of you for your generous support of this project and when all this is behind me look forward to recording the new album & delivering your well deserved rewards.

Sincerely

Mark Elf
