We did it!
Thanks to each of you, vinyl and CDs are a go for my new album! I can't properly express my gratitude in words - just know that I am extremely humbled and thrilled. It is truly an honor to be putting out an album that is effectively produced by the fan base. Call it whatever you want - crowdsourcing, Music 2.0, fundraising - the album is now basically yours. Gotta Groove Records is already setting up the presses for the vinyl production as you read this! (CDs, which take less time, will start being produced in a couple of weeks)
For those of you who ordered physical items, I will be in touch with you directly once I receive your email addresses (after the Kickstarter deadline ends). I will be out of email range 10/19-10/25, but I will try to reach each of you before then for your mailing addresses, song requests, etc. For those of you receiving custom art from Dave Gonzalez, I will forward your mailing addresses to him.
It looks like the album will come out mid-November, with a release party tentatively planned for 11/22 at the Galaxy Hut in Arlington, VA. More details soon!
Thank you again!! If you know anyone who was planning on pre-ordering, but hasn't done it yet, please let them know that they can still do so before noon on Wednesday. Once the Kickstarter project ends, I won't be taking orders again until November.
PS. Attached is a version of the WTOP interview that ran every hour last Friday and Saturday. Enjoy!
