The store is open!
Actually, one of you discovered that we had already put the button up for pre-selling CDs last week. You are sneaky. You clicked the button. You get to be first in line when we mail these things in a few weeks- and we’ll throw in some extra stickers just for you. You know who you are.
Everybody else- here’s the deal. As of today, you can pre-order an actual CD copy of Dirt & Heartache. You get the music, and the really awesome album art with photographs by Josh at Dancer Productions and design by Terry Kishiyama. We’ll ship them so that they arrive the week before the release party at Oskar Blues here in Lyons (that’s March 12- take note!) Along with the cd, we’ll throw some stickers in the envelope as well as a personal thank you from me. Because, well, if you buy it, then thank you.
Pre-ordered CDs will ship the week prior to March 12, 2016
I understand if most of your music comes in 1’s and 0’s these days. I buy a lot of music that way too. I love the instant gratification and the portability. But as an artist, it feels really good to give people something you made. And as a person who likes art, it feels really great to get an actual thing.
Also, as an artist, it’s a better deal for me if you just buy a CD. The album will be available for pre-order on iTunes in a few weeks, of course, but Apple takes their cut, and that’s true of every other outlet as well. So if you buy it straight from me, you get the music, you get an actual thing, and most of your transaction goes to me making more things.
So click the button and buy the album, please!
