Hey everyone, just a quick update to give you a heads up on what projects I'm planning to work on in 2021. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the release of my debut album, 50 Years Too Late, and to celebrate we're going to reissue the album on CD for the first time since its initial release in 2006. It has been unavailable for many years and I'm always asked about how to get a copy of this album on CD and this will be your chance!
Another question I'm often asked is about a vinyl release. We're working on that as well but it will be a limited release exclusive to pre-orders and fan club members. In the coming weeks we will be launching a crowd funding campaign to help offset the cost of this project as vinyl is very expensive for an independent artist like myself to manufacture. As of right now I'm only planning on doing 100 copies of both the CD and the Vinyl. If demand is proven to be higher than that, we will press up however many are ordered, but I'm not expecting to sell more than 100 of them.
Be on the lookout for the pre-order to start sometime this month and run through February with a scheduled release date to be announced for the Spring.
There will be new music in the fall in the form of a follow up EP to "State of Heartbreak." My original intention was for there to be two EP's released in 2020, followed by a vinyl of those two EP's combined into an LP for 2021. The pandemic of course altered those plans so my goal will be to have that EP ready and released this coming fall.
Well, that's about it for now. If you haven't noticed, I am entirely off of the major social media platforms. If you're interested in what's going on just be sure to stay subscribed to this mailing list for whatever updates there may be in the coming months. I am still active on Patreon so you can follow me there if you feel so inclined. I will be making posts over there that will be available to those of you that are not members so if you're interested in being a part of it, bookmark the site or download the app to keep in touch or you can always go about things the old fashioned way and drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyway, thanks a lot for your support in 2020, I hope you all made the best of the holidays and that things will improve in 2021!
