Still Here

When I released my last album, Safe in Sound, in 2019, I declared that it would be my last solo album. It seemed that interest in albums was waning, and that folks really just wanted to hear singles.

So in 2020 I began releasing singles. And while there was a nice reception to this new music, I found that I was missing something about an album; the intentional collection of related songs, the matching artwork, and the physical object.

At the same time, I realized that when I listen to music, I still almost always choose albums, and from talking to friends, it’s most often the same for them. There’s something special about an album.

So I have changed my mind, and I’ve decided to get back in the studio to record a new album, to be called Still Here. It will contain a number of brand-new songs, as well as some of the singles that have already been recorded. I hope to release the album by early in 2022, maybe even by the end of 2021. I can’t wait!

There are a lot of costs associated with this project, primarily studio time, pressing costs, and artwork. I’ve calculated that this will cost about $1800. So now I’m asking if you would consider pre-ordering the download or the physical CD, or anything else on this page, and it all will go to creating Still Here.

Choose from the album options at the right, and check out the other unique items below, and become a partner in this very special project!

(If we raise money beyond the goal, it will all go towards recording The Killifish!)
