A couple of days ago, I posted that it was my birthday and could people please buy a copy of my album or stream a few of my tunes on Spotify. And today, I see there’s a bump in my numbers. Not a huge bump mind you, but you know… discernible. So, there IS love out there if you can find a way to tap it. Too bad I can only do the birthday thing once a year. 🙂
Hello Everyone. This Sunday’s Playlist is a link to my album, Mystic Journeys. Featuring 11 original songs including These Days, Don’t You Ever Wonder Why and Away Yo Go Flying, the album is available right now on all major streaming and distribution platforms. Please check it out:
My album, Mystic Journeys, is all set for release next Friday, Jan. 31st. It should be available for sale on itunes, CD Baby and most streaming services like Spotify and Deezer. If you don’t see it right away on your favourite service, just wait a while. It will be there eventually.
It seems a little surreal to be finally letting it go. I guess it would be fair to say that it’s been a long time coming. I actually wrote part of one of the songs, Starting Out, more than 40 years ago. Others like Slipping Away and Don’t You Ever Wonder Why first saw the light of day in the early 90s.
And then there’s Away You Go Flying, which I wrote a few days before the end of 2019. I actually had the whole album ready to go when that song first started percolating in my brain. I thought it might be a good one, and I decided to delay the album release so I could add it. I laid down the vocal and guitar as a single track, and then I added drums and other percussion, a complicated bass line and I started experimenting with a fiddle melody. But then I thought, no. It should just be the original vocal-guitar track. It’s more honest that way. More authentic. And what could be more authentic or honest than a song about your dead Mother?
Anyway, it’s coming out Friday. I’ll post again after the release with links to samples etc. Hope you like it.
