Welcome

Hi 

I just wanted to let you know that I am releasing a new album July 6th.  I recorded it at home over the last few months on a $300 Tascam Portastudio. I did get Drew Vandenberg to mix it and Jason NeSmith to master it.  And it sounds pretty good!

This is the first part of a multi-disc musical autobiography.  7 tracks clocking in at about 30 minutes.  Here is the artwork. Designed by Jeremy Fetzer.

 

Here is the important part.  I only made 1000 copies.  And I'm only selling them at Cracker and CVB shows starting July 6th.  If there are any leftover after the Campout I will put the remainder online. 

So yes that means I am having The Worlds Most Under Functioning Record Release Party at The Mill in Iowa City July 6th  Not that I don't like The Mill or Iowa City. But it is a college town in the middle of the summer and just after July 4th holiday. It is what it is and I sort of like it that way.

You can listen to some previews in music player above.
