I hope this communique finds you sheltering in a happy place safe & healthy. I’m releasing two new music compositions Friday May 1st on Bandcamp. Bandcamp is waiving it’s revenue share to give 100% of the sales to the artists directly, on the first Friday of every month. This applies to back catalog releases AND brand new works. Now is a great time to go shopping to help support independent artists.
The first new piece I’m releasing is a 20 minute ambient guitar soundscape titled “Witters Lake”. It’s intended for relaxation, meditation, yoga, chill-out backdrop mood-setting. I’d like to consider it perhaps along similar lines as some of Brian Eno’s long-form ambient recordings. It was recorded & mixed in August of 2013 in Wautoma WI in a lakeside cabin.
The second piece is a NEW song about time. It’s an acoustic finger-style guitar tune I wrote & recorded this past week, on a Saturday morning. It’s called “Pause”. It’s the most direct artistic statement I can think of… writing & recording something and making it available inside a week… rather than waiting years to release it. 😉 This is the first time I’ve done it. I hope you’ll preview both these works and consider purchasing them as digital downloads. As always, thank you for your support.
I look forward to playing music solo & with cherished musical friends again in real life & time, in a communal performance space as soon as that is safely allowable. Until then… you can find me leading some music classes and special programming at Old Town School of Folk Music online. Click the link for more information. Peace to you & please stay safe everyone.
