making sure spring gets its due, there’s a new feature this month: all future cd sales will go thru my website. so get ’em while supplies last. btdubbs, you can request signed copies still but just know it may take a bit longer, depending on when i am in town to sign.
the new album, unCovered, will be released in the fall on vinyl and digitally. i can get it for you wholesale. [jk- that’s a musical.] ❤
Deciding to look into the archives before starting the album and dig up a few treasures to release for the Subscribers List (see here or here), I came across some recordings from the Wind Chases the Sun sessions (see here). One was a song that I co-wrote with the wonderful Jesse DeNatale, about Leonard and his first wife, Mary, who went through his early trials with him. The Black Market Band re-recorded our initial demo track and gave it some real landscape, but I find I prefer the intimate, bare-bones style(surprise, surprise) of the initial track, so we remixed it and voila. It will be available on Aug 17th (->see music page) xo
The recordings on unCovered continue, a saga by now. More on that later. Meantime, it’s hot and always a good time for a tall iced tea…..
So, there’s a new album of songs coming and it’s avail for pre-release orders as of the 15th of this month over on Bandcamp 😉 It is a project not close to my heart, but it IS my heart: a tribute to my mother who died in December, it’s a collection of songs she sang all the time with us-my dad and us three kids- but since it couldn’t be 800 hours long, we had to peel it back…. to 21 tracks. 😉 But! They are pretty snippet-y tunes, some under a minute, and recorded with my bother Aaron and my daughter Juliet this winter. I hope you love them as much as I do!
They are going to be wrapped up in June ( i.e.: mastering, cds, etc) with liner notes and bonus & hidden tracks- well worth the tiny price tag of $7 hopefully! Thanks so much for listening and PLEASE, people, feedback! I wanna know what you think! xo
so i recently came across a whole bunch of unprocessed film rolls in cannisters in my things which had been stored basically since 2004 when i packed up my house in studio city and pretty much went on the road. anyway, ive been getting them developed and posting these old shots from, i dont know, 2002? ’03, ’04, ’05? in the last few postings. funny to see what we had been in the middle of. where we went. how things are. different world, really. hope you enjoy.
