I’m proud to present my next album – Community Balloon which will be released on June 1st, 2010 by Collar City Records!
The album is filled with songs based on ideas and creative input from the lovely folks on my Weekly Email List. (Are you signed up?)
Last fall, I sent out a note to the list asking folks to send in their feelings, ideas, sounds, lyrics, thoughts, pictures, challenges, or whatever they’d like to hear translated into a song by myself. I needed fodder for songs, since I have offered a new song and/or video of new song to the list each week for seventy-five weeks now without fail.
The ideas that people sent me were amazing! As I worked on the songs, I realized that the arc of the music was turning into an album. Despite having enough songs written to make an entirely new full-length album of my own work, I felt compelled to finish this batch of “Community” based songs before moving on.
There are many other “Community”-like contributions to the completion of the album (like the gorgeous photography by Bennett V Campbell that adorns the cover) that will be unveiled as we inch closer to the release of the album.
Next Wednesday April 28th will see the launch of a pre-sale which will allow you the opportunity to purchase the album or the (limited-edition) “Community Bundle” in advance of the release date.
The aforementioned album and bundle will be available at the Community Balloon CD Release Show on Sunday, May 9th at Caffé Lena in Saratoga Springs. Tickets are going fast, so please click here to secure yourself a seat!
