I may start crying if I’m not careful.
I mean, we actually did this. Nine months ago, I trembled my way into a Kickstarter campaign and asked for help making another record. Who am I to ask so much from others? But I did.
Songs and substance were beginning to well up again, and there didn’t seem to be a way to get them out on my own. This simply would not have gone forward at that time without a communal effort. And you guys stepped out of shadows with so much joy & gratitude (!) it took my breath away.
And here we are.
Today was the official birthdate of “FEED YOUR SOUL,” an album of 12 new & original songs that begins with vanity & self-sufficiency and ends in authentic love & community.
I did not know where I was going with these songs at first. I didn’t know how they would fit together or what umbrella they might belong under. They terrified me, honestly, and I was often certain they were miserable failures.
But you’ve begun to take them out of my arms and carry them with you. And I’m finding out from you that the course was right after all and the work worth the labor pains.
So, world, I humbly present “FEED YOUR SOUL,” bashfully placing it at the foot of the mountain of good things. Hopeful it belongs there.
And if you agree it was worth the effort…maybe you’ll tell somebody?
Two Ways to Show Your Love:
- Itunes/Amazon reviews & ratings…It really helps an album to have lots of good words written about it. If you have 5 minutes…?
- Give a copy or copies away…to your neighbor, co-worker or blog-readers
The world needs music-lovers as much as music-makers. It never escapes me how much I need you. Humbly grateful you’ve chosen to be here in this moment with me.
