Well, it's official!! Undercover Muse is now available via CDbaby.com:
I couldn’t be more excited to share these songs with you. Sample the tunes if you like, and please spread the word!
And it might just have happened to be released on my birthday... :-)
Undercover Muse has officially gone to production at Oasis CD Manufacturing!
The expected release date is 2/28/2013, and will be available via CDbaby.com.
More information to come. In the meantime some other exciting things are happening!
Last weekend I worked for the first time with percussionist Joe Hilling. We're getting a sizzling show together, and can't wait to share it with you. Also this coming weekend I'll be attending the 17th Annual Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, PA. Five solo artists, including myself, were chosen to showcase at Coakley's Irish Pub on Saturday, February 16th starting at 8:30pm.
Come and hear some brand new acoustic music. No cover!
Also I'll be participating in a performance of the groundbreaking songwriter concert series, "The 9" which is coming to Shepherdstown on Thursday, February 21st at 7:30pm. What is "The 9"?
I am so looking forward to sharing the new CD, and to performing in some unique and interesting collaborations this month. Even in the midst of the cold, music is helping to preserve warmth in ourselves. Here's to the holds of winter releasing us into spring with open arms. See you soon!
Happy New Year! I hope the winter is bringing joy and blessings to you and your loved ones.
Tomorrow I will head into Echoes Recording Studio to lay down the final tracks for Undercover Muse! It has been an incredible journey so far, and I am very proud to share these songs with you. All things considered I am looking to officially release the CD at the end of February. Stay tuned for an exact date when Undercover Muse will be available on iTunes and cdbaby.com.
In the meantime feel free to check out "Wilderness Song", a video recorded for the National Park Service in commemoration of 50 years of wilderness protection. It features me and my songwriting mentor, Pops Walker.
Thanks for listening. :-)
The Kickstarter project for the manufacturing of Undercover Muse has launched! If you would like to pre-order a signed copy, there are 18 days left to do so. Or if you’d like a house concert in 2013, there is still time to reserve one as well! Or if you’d just like to have a laugh, watch my friend’s puppet choreography in the kickstarter video. (Thanks Beth :-) )
Thank you for your consideration in supporting independent music! I hope your holiday season continues with warmth, health, and joy.
Whew, the past few weeks have been rather eventful! In the last 10 days, I have sung for the governor of WV, performed at 868 Vineyard and the Shenandoah River Mini-Songfest, and been filmed in a video for the National Park Service promoting the Wilderness Act.
This week I’m looking forward to writing some more material for the CD, and next week to recording at Echoes Recording Studio in Sharpsburg, MD. In the meantime, I hope to see some of you at the show on Saturday at Plan B Café in Broadway, VA! Starts at 7:30pm. $7 cover, $5 for students/seniors, and children under 12—free.
Regarding the upcoming CD, as it is still in the recording stages, the release date is being pushed back to December, and will hold a new title: “Undercover Muse.” Feel free to give the tune a listen here.
Thanks for checking in! Look forward to seeing many of you soon.
