Studio update and album release party!

Hello ladies, germs, and countrymen!

We had another big day in the studio this past weekend and golly gee are these songs coming together! They’re sounding like…real songs! We added piano and upright bass, which already transforms the sound, and next we’re adding violin and horns! And…did someone say…tap dancing? Whaaaat? We’ll see!

I’m hoping that with the somewhat-manageable amount of work we have left, this album can get finished before July. So hold on to your hats for a July release date!! I can’t wait for everyone to hear these songs.

For a full play-by-play of last week’s studio visit (plus a sneak peak of an old jazz song that’ll be on the album) check out the latest update on my Kickstarter page!

Gordon and I played a gig at Rockwood Music Hall on May 31st and it was a lot of fun! A bunch of friends (and a few fans!) pulled through, and we enjoyed the cozy intimate atmosphere of Stage 3. We want to go back and see the Bumper Jacksons perform there soon, since they are a recent inspiration of mine.

And some NEWS on our album release party!! We will be playing at Caffe Vivaldi Saturday July 30th from 7pm to 9pm and we will be selling CDs, giving away fun stuff, and partying it up after all the hard work. There’s no cover to get in, so swing by! We may even have some guest musicians so the live performances will sound like the recordings. Woo!

RSVP to the facebook event here!

We’ve got more work to do in the studio and a gig this weekend for a private party, which will be fun! June is definitely going to be busy (and July…and August…) but the good kind of busy!
