“Releasing” a cd sometimes is a little like finding an injured bird…….taking the bird to the vet…..bandaging the birds broken wing…..taking care of the bird until it heals, and then you have your big moment when you take the bird into the backyard to “release” the bird. The bird, who by this time you’ve become a little sentimental about, flies up…..you can feel the excitement that comes from the satisfaction that you’ve “saved” this little creature……..it flies to your neighbors fence, lands, and gives what you think is one last look to you…..it is a moment…..and then “wham”…..the neighbor’s cat nails it, and presumably it comes to a very violent sad end.
I’m trying to avoid that with my new cd.
As an indie artist…..I live and die by my own sword…..which is oddly comforting, but the sword can draw blood at times. There are times when I wish I could be back in the big machine of A&M, especially when i’ve made what I feel like is the best record I ever made…….the one I WISH I had made when I was on A&M, but then again………I don’t think at 23 years old I just didn’t have it in me. So, I will fight the good fight, and do the best I can.
The 50 States in 50 Days tour is eminent. I will hit the road hard. Try to do some good things here and there, and if folks want to buy a cd it will be on the merch table. That is what I know how to do.
Today, prior to the tour………i’m going to do a special. If you buy a copy of “Some Comfort”, then I will throw in a copy of “True” as well, and also the live, unreleased 13 track cd–i’m getting a great reaction from the live cd. You can have those three cds for $25. In addition, upon purchase you will be sent to a link where you can instantly download the tracks from “Some Comfort.”
So, today’s special-Buy “Some Comfort”, “True”, and the live, unreleased tracks for $25.
You can also just buy “Some Comfort” for $15 here, or just “True” for $15 here.
We shot the new video of “Some Comfort” in Los Angeles recently……and it feels like an example of my life’s work…….Cory from the “Red-Blooded American Boy” video agreed to appear in it……20 years later. She looks better…..I look a little grizzled, but I have 20 years of road on me. Here it is……..comment below and let me know what you think? Also, if you’ve already received your copy of “Some Comfort” then please leave an honest review below in the comment section…..here’s the video:
