New EP available for Pre Order now and Holy Crap, we're gonna be on TV!! Scroll on down....
All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go...
Well, that's a little silly I suppose. I live out of a suitcase half the year. My bag is always packed. I essentially never even upack it. I just wear different clothes when I'm home. And I'm always ready to go. Anyway...
Big week here in my own little world. First on the docket, the new EP, "In Spite of Everything" is almost ready for unveilin'. If you're new to the newsletter or you've missed the updates over the past few months, this is the collection of my songs Produced by 6x Grammy Winning Producer John Shanks. Working with him and the amazing group of musicians he assembled for these sessions was a total honor and I can't wait to get the songs out to you all.
Here's a glimpse of the artwork. Click the image to PRE-ORDER. To be blunt, you doing this will help me to scrape together funds needed to actually get these things printed. It's a rather pricey venture, but it's worth it. You can reserve the digital version, which I'll email to you as soon as it's done (call it early December) or a hard copy, which I'll mail to you as soon as I have them (in time for the holidays!) along with an email containing digital tracks. I'll also toss in a few bonus track surprises via email and sign the hard copies before I send them out to thank you for purchasing in advance. Click the pic!
Secondly (drumroll please)... Super happy to announce that on Thursday, December 12th, the band and I will be performing on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! Show to play these new tunes for you all, and hopefully the rest of the free world if they tune in. This is obviously a huge landmark in my career and my band members' too. We couldn't be happier, more nervous or more excited about it all and let's face it, if we know tons of you all are watching, it'll be easier. I'd much rather picture my friends in their underwear than people I don't know.
OR... If you're in and/or around the Los Angeles area and you want to come be in the audience that day, that's even better. Tickets are FREE and can be reserved by clicking the pic above. They're on a first come, first serve basis so they'll let you know once you get your name in if you will actually have a ticket, I reckon.
And help us get the word out by sharing the Facebook Event we created.
HUGE thanks to the folks at Guitar Center for making this happen.
And if you're in LA that week, please join us for a celebratory show/Industry showcase on Friday 12/13 at The Viper Room in Hollywood, where we'll be strutting our stuff Sunset Strip Style for some industry folks that can really help make a difference in our careers. Come help us impress them by packing in a huge crowd. HERE is the Facebook event page for that show.
Also, keep your eyes on the Dates Page of the website for forthcoming details on year end shows in Pittsburgh, Philly, NYC and eventually a big one in San Francisco early next year to celebrate a nutty 2013. This has indeed been a crazy year. Without your support, it wouldn't be happening. Thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK you.
With so much love and appreciation,
