I am writing to you with a huge smile on my face because all of the materials for my album are finally off to production! After a little bit of delay, the mastered songs are finally done and ready to be sent out as well as the artwork. (I have included a little sneak peek of what the album art looks like below.) In just a few short weeks, hundreds of copies will arrive at my doorstep all pretty and new!
Those of you who donated to my Kickstarter will be receiving copies of the album either in digital or physical form by the end of March, and on APRIL 13th (mark your calendars!) I will have an official unveiling of the album to the public at THE LIVING ROOM in New York’s Lower East Side. Woohoo! – In the meantime, I will be playing a few shows here and there (as listed below) and getting ready for the album release party.
Hope you guys are totally enjoying this near-spring weather we’ve been having (at least here in the northeast!) and I really really hope to see you guys at the big show!
3.10 @ 3PM – Rockwood Music Hall Stage 1
3.30 @ 8PM – Sidewalk Cafe
4.13 @ 8PM – The Living Room (RELEASE SHOW)
ALBUM ARTWORK by Jenna Mallett:
The winter is cold, yo. The other day I walked outside with wet hair in braids and the ends of my braids were completely frozen in under 10 seconds. This is New York, people. This is how we roll with winter. I hope very soon it will actually SNOW so we can have a reason for all this coldness! So glad I’m inside a cafe right now, warm and toasty with a cup of earl grey tea in hand.
The winter has also made complacent this album process. The holidays put a hold on things for a few weeks there, but now we are back on the ball! Mastering and artwork should all be totally done by the end of the week if all goes well! So so so exciting. Then it is off to the manufacturers sometime next week. My beautiful baby is about to fly the nest. Not ready not ready not ready not ready. But also SO ready.
In other news, I have a show in Brooklyn this FRIDAY, JAN 20th @ 10PM at Pete’s Candy Store. You should all come cuz it’s free and my friend Yoni Gordon is doing this wacky thing called the Yoni Gordon Orchestra right before my set. He emailed a bunch of musicians, asking them to learn his songs, and then we’re all gonna come together and perform them on Friday unrehearsed. Could be amazing or completely disastrous. We shall see! And then I’m doing a full band set with all my original songs at 10:00. Should be a pretty fun and interesting evening of music! I hope to see some of you there.
Anyways, that’s all for now, mis amigos. The cold has also made me feel lazy about writing a post any longer than this.
But I love you all, thanks for reading. It means a lot to me.
I’m so excited cuz we’re up to $2,740 out of my $5,000 goal. More than 50% of the way there! THIS IS SO COOL. We have 15 days to go and $2,260 to go. We can do this! Come spread the word to all your friends.
Go under “Updates” and check out my most recent video update! Me being awkward.
So much love to all my supporters!!
