Dear Family, Friends, and Fans alike !
Finally! A chance to keep you updated on what's going on. Pay no attention right now to my current website because I haven't had the chance to update it as of late. For now, please check out my MYSPACE page for a complete schedule of upcoming gigs with lots of music and info if you're interested in attending a show.
Now onto more important stuff... THE UPCOMING CD "A BRIGHTER DAY" !!! ...
[ I'm going to try to catch him on Sept. 11th: 9/11 5 Year Tribute in Union Square, New York, NY @ 2pm ]
The upcoming CD is currently being mixed and almost complete. Been working extremely hard over the past 10 months in trying to steer this baby home. Right now, it looks like the OFFICIAL release will be SPRING 2007. But I do plan to release LIMITED copies of the new CD at live shows - around Thanksgiving time - which would be NOVEMBER 18 (NEW MOON COFFEEHOUSE) and onto DECEMBER 2 in NYC at MAKOR.
I want to make sure this CD truly rocks, with groovy pictures, artwork, and hopefully a music video or two to go along with it.
Being an independent artist is hard work as many of you know. So all of this takes a lot of time. I'm hoping to get this music on iTUNES and many other digital distributors before the new year so you can at least hear and download the music online if you're not able to make it to a concert.
I'm proud to welcome on board (no pun intended) Mr. YULI CHEN - whom I have asked to officially mix my CD. You can check him out here:
For a young man of 22, he has accomplished so many things and I'm very excited to have been working with him over the past few weeks.
The CD's tracks are as follows:
NEW YORK CITY
A BRIGHTER DAY
ONCE CALLED GLORY
GOOD TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
LOVE SUITE #239
THE NEW SENSATION
COME SUNDAY MORNING
I've got lots of people making cameo appearances on the CD, too - ERIC SCHWARTZ, HEATHER PARK, VUDOO SOUL, TAIYO, FRANK CARTER, JOHANNA, ANITA CHEUNG, DAVID KOLKER, NOAH MALTSBERGER, and a few more who have been so kind as to share their musical gifts. This is truly a NEW YORK CITY album - all folks who are currently living in NYC or have spent a good amount of time here. It's exactly the vision I was going for when I began working on this album back in late spring of 2003 - soon after completing LEAVING THE LIGHTS ON and the tour that followed.
Ok. Time to get out of the house and enjoy the beautiful weather outside.
Thanks for reading and for your continued support. I could not do this without YOU !!!
peace and persistence
