Incredible. Dig the profound guitar moment beginning at 10:25. If anyone needs me, I’m somewhere in those sheets of sound…
One more post before the break…
Happy Record Store Day everyone!! To commemorate the 6th year of this very special music holiday, I’ve released a special package of limited edition merchandise at my online store!
The package includes a signed CD copy of EVERYONE MEET HERE, limited edition stickers, a custom NV guitar pick, and - the CROWN JEWEL - a bonus CD featuring:
1. An unreleased song
2. Alleys: An Oral History - the exclusive, behind the scenes story of my out of print 2007 album, PLUS…
3. Select original recordings from Alleys!
Please check it out when you can! All the proceeds from this special package go toward the next record fund, I can use all the help I can get! Thank you for supporting and celebrating music today and everyday!
I’m not gonna be posting on here for awhile. These are heady times and in heady times I should be focusing on writing songs and giving people my love and support one-on-one. I’ve fallen into some preachy traps lately and they’ve only caused more stress and pain for me and probably for a few others too…I’ve even gotten harassed on here through messages for the first time in over two years on Tumblr. I’m not interested in another moment of that.
So I’m gonna try to stop judging people and participating in the over-discussing of and wallowing in current news, and just hold my own peaceful, loving, musical space in the way I know how.
So I hope you’ll take some time to reach out and stay in touch with me in the places where I feel I can be a little more at peace online and not use up so much of my time. I have an Instagram account, so please follow me there if you’ve got one. I have two Facebook pages you can like and contribute to if you wish: the music page for my next record and my vinyl listening community. You should also feel free to just search my name on Facebook and add me as a friend!
I’ve found that Tumblr is a great place for old souls and for those who wear their hearts on their sleeve…two qualities I relate to a lot. Thank you beautiful people for the boundless inspiration here so far. Some of you keep your identities very mysterious and private, so I will totally understand if I don’t hear from you in more conventional places like Facebook. But I hope that I do hear from you.
Here’s a quote I really dig right now: “We cannot judge something and feel love for it at the same time.” - John Selby
I love you!
I want all my fellow old souls to hear this gorgeous song by Sagittarius from the glorious 1968 album Present Tense. If you can find this, get into it…you won’t be disappointed.
“Will you ever, will you ever know?”
Mexican artist Pedro Reyes fashioned musical instruments out of old guns, and brought together these musicians to perform John Lennon’s “Imagine” with the instruments. Listen to all the hurt pouring out of these old weapons…
