Holy Crap. HOLY CRAP. We have almost hit the $10,000 mark. I am so humbled and honored by your generosity, love and support. Thank you SO much.
It's been a hell of a ride these past 29 days...
In case you're not a Facebook user, I wanted to paste part of a post I sent out today:
...I'm telling you... there is something about this record. Only 2 songs in and I know it's the best thing I've ever done. (Don't misunderstand - - I have done some amazing shows and recordings and written great songs with my bands, Meg and the Clams, Big Backyard, and This Other Life). But this one? This is the one where I pull it all together; everything I've learned from my experiences. It's been worth every gig, every schlepping of the gear up and down endless flights of stairs, every sound check, every audience of not more than tables and chairs, every show where we packed the house, every connection I've made with my brother and sister musicians over the years, every band, every break up of a band, every bad song I ever wrote, and the one or two good ones... EVERYTHING! Thank you for helping me make my dream come true...
Yesterday, I posted a snippet of one of the songs that will be on this CD on both Youtube and Facebook. But I thought I should attach the full song here. I mean, really. It's because of youse that I'm going to be able to finish this project!!!! You shouldn't have to go looking for it, for crying out loud. I should be bringing it to you! So it's down below. I had to make it an iMovie in order to attach it, so the "movie" is just a single photograph.
The only thing I ask is that you please don't share it with anyone, as it's not mixed or mastered yet, and there are still live music tracks to be recorded. It's called "Out of Tune". David Chance and I wrote it together a few weeks ago.
I'll be back tomorrow to check in and update you all.
