Patience. Patience is where it's at for me this August.
I am a notoriously impatient human, so the whole album-making process can be very challenging for me on that front. Though I've been down this road many times before, I still find myself wishing I could rush into the studio, record in the moment, mix, master, and release a new record as fast as humanly possible... but alas, that is not the way of things when you want your work to be the best it can be.
So, this month, as my intrepid (and supremely patient) producer JOE IADANZA and I continue to methodically work through each of the twenty songs under consideration for the album, carefully listening to what each needs to be its very best -- a lyric change there, a harmonic tweak there, perhaps the replacement or removal of entire sections to clarify story, intent, emotion -- I continually remind myself that good things take time. And great reserves of patience! In September, Joe and I will ask a few of our favorite musicians to join us for rehearsals and help us find the best sounds for each of these songs. Then, and only then, will we schedule recording dates.
Deep in my heart, I know the fruit of all this patience will be the very BEST album of my career thus far! If you are blessed with more patience than I possess, perhaps you'd like to get on board early and pre-order the oh-so-creatively titled [ALBUM TITLE] by clicking HERE.
Get in on the ground floor today, friends, and while you’re at it, tell two friends to do the same! And tell them to tell two friends, and so on, and so on… you see what I’m getting at here? Once again, here's that pre-order link:
Starting tonight, I'm back out on the road, sharing favorite tunes (and probably trying out a few of the new ones). Click HERE to find out where you can find me playing and singing this month and beyond.
Wishing you a beautiful August, and hope to see you soon!
