My Album Takes a Leap Towards the Finish Line

My album, "The Impossible Girl," is going to be finished soon! I have dates at the end of this month for final recording and mixing. Then comes mastering. And then I can start to release it! I'm not even going to talk about dates until I have a finished product in my hand and there is still quite a process left before the end. Art needs to be finished, packaging designed, songs chosen, songs, ordered. It's a big job. I'm up to the task.

Thank you to all who have pre-ordered - we are making this album together and it is really really great. It has meant so much to me to have so many of you believing in me through such a dark time of my life when I didn't believe in myself. The last year was hard. So hard. But I've come through and what I have now is better than anything I've ever had.

And you know what? The songs that were good to begin with are now astounding. I love my music - wholeheartedly. I love performing again and I want to do it as much as possible. So thanks for sticking with me! You are loved and appreciated!

The pre-order will keep going, as the costs still need to be met. And I still won't be releasing until I have enough to pay for the rest of the process. Those of you who have not ordered yet can still do so, though I must warn that soon the $5 option will be gone - so if that is your price range, get it now!

I will have another album preview for you soon! As well as a recording from the show this Wednesday, May 12th in Boston at Mad Oak Studios - it is a live recording session with an audience, it is free to attend, and it will be fantastic! I'll be joined onstage by Helen Gillet, my cellist friend from New Orleans and what we are doing together is jaw droppingly beautiful. I will also webcast!

Webcast from Mad Oak Studio, Wednesday May 12th - 8pm EST (5pm US West Coast)

More news:

My next webcast with Molly Crabapple and Jim Batt is on May 20th at 9pm EST (6pm US West Coast.) We will again be discussing our animated music video for "The Organ Donor's March." We'll have new art to show you and Molly will probably draw another wonderful piece to auction for the occasion.

I've cancelled my June 18th show in California - at this point I'm not sure I'll be back in California at all in June. My life is a little bit up in the air as I navigate this crazy time before the album comes out and I launch myself back into the fray of full time music making and touring.

I'm very excited to have my album coming out, and a little daunted by the task of doing everything myself all over again. This art life is impossible. And that, friends, is exactly why I do it.
