One thing I have always wanted to do is to make a true solo record, playing the drums, bass, guitar, piano, and vocals. It's just something I've wanted to try: to take some songs that maybe didn't really work with the band, to be fully responsible for them, fully in charge of them, and just have fun playing (who else would let me play drums on a record?). These are more barebones, acoustic driven songs a little more in the singer/songwriter vein.

There's a new Vago record wrapping up, there's an Edge of Arbor record being recorded right now, and the next Lash LaRue & the Hired Guns trip to the studio is in the works, so this is not to replace any of that, just a venture into something different I wanted to do. 

Truth be told, I am extremely nervous about putting this record out. It was really fun to do, I'm very happy with how it came out and really proud of the songs... but it's occurred to me that I'm the only one on it! That's a little scary as I start to get closer to putting it out there for everyone to hear! 

Being the only one on the record poses another challenge - I get to be the only one paying for it too! No complaints from me, that's always been part of the territory for musicians and artists. I've put a little band together (Danny Burns & the Disagreements) to help me throw a CD release party on April 6th at the Downunder Lounge - but I could use a little help to get the recording paid off, CD's made in time for the show, and download options covered. If you're planning to buy a shirt or a CD, it would be a huge help to me if you pre-order it here. I've got just about a month to hit the goal! Thank you!

Risks and challenges

Being the only one on the record poses another challenge - I get to be the only one paying for it too! No complaints from me, that's always been part of the territory for musicians and artists. I've put a little band together (Danny Burns & the Disagreements) to help me throw a CD release party in March. But I could use a little help to get the recording paid off, CD's made in time for the show, and download options covered. I won't turn down straight up donations of course, but I'd really like to see preorders of the record - I want you to hear it, and I honestly think you'll like it.
