I'm really excited about the limited edition deluxe package, which includes the standard CD issue as well as a handmade sleeve with pearl snaps (if you know me, you know my love of snap-button western shirts), a rubber-stamped brain graphic and hand-written lyrics and signature. I'm not hugely crafty, but I'm pumped at how they turned out. The watercolor was done by Chelcie (more on credits and thank-yous for the album soon).
And finally, there's the release party! Thursday night at 7 pm, I'm playing a short acoustic set at the beloved Noble Fir, and we're spinning the album afterward. It'll be a celebration of a year of hard work and hopefully the start of some more traction with what's been a pretty "underground" music career so far. If you found yourself on this site because of another artist I've reviewed, please do take the time to check out and possibly purchase my album--independent music takes a lot of work and a lot of money and it can't survive and grow without help. A couple more Cheap Seats posts coming soon, then down to the business of introducing some specific tracks from the album.
