NEW ALBUM DAY, Y’ALL!
Good morning, friends!
Today is new album day!! I am thrilled to share with you LOVE IS ONTO YOU, my 15th album and a collaboration effort that is dear to my heart.
And as I celebrate, I find myself befuddled by this funny music industry. What is an album anymore? What is a release? Who cares, ha!
I am so energized by music and songs and collaboration and community, like a 1000 watt light bulb. And I loooove the format of an album that allows the arc of a story, an emotional and energetic ebb and flow. So I made something and I want to share it with you.
I get tripped up on the language around releasing new music. I don’t want to “drop” anything! I want to envelop it in a basket of marshmallows and feathers and gently place it at your doorstep while you are sleeping so you wake up to something someone made just for you. I want to bow with it in my hands and reach out in offering, showing my reverence and gratitude to you for receiving it. I want to let it go so it can sing to you.
These days I don’t want to push, I just want to let things be. So here’s a little light to pass along from my heart to yours. I am so proud of this collaboration with these amazing folks… Tyler Fortier, Keith Banning, David Jacobs-Strain, Thaddeus Moore, Nate Barnes, Milo Fultz, Pillippe Bronchtein, Brent McGregor, Kara Mickaelson, Dennis McGregor, Sally Sunsten, and all of my wonderful patrons. In the midst of extreme isolation, we made this together, and it feels like a miracle.
LOVE IS ONTO YOU is available now on all platforms for streaming and download. If you still like listening to ol-fashioned CDs, I’d be happy to send you one. You can order from me here!
I hope you like it. I made it for you!
Here’s a little video I made to announce the album release.
Also one more note…I’ve got two shows coming up this weekend in Alpharetta, GA, just north of Atlanta. Saturday is sold out, but there are tickets left for Friday. This concert series is very special to me, and I cherish all the times I have gotten to make music with the amazing musician humans at Home By Dark! This will be an unforgettable experience at Union Hill Park in Alpharetta with lil ol me and the most amazing band ever. Old songs, new songs, laughter, tears, harmonies, and chill bump moments will be happening all night long! Tickets and info here.
Thank you for cheering me on in all of my creative adventures and for receiving my new work so lovingly. And thank you for sharing my new album with your music loving friends! Yours in gratitude and in song,
