I'd say I'm dropping new music—but it's more like a drip—from a broken water faucet.
I'm releasing a new full band single called NO VACANCY on Tuesday July 31st 2018. It will be available for streaming as well as digital purchase that day on all your favorite music streaming haunts: Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Youtube, Soundcloud, iHeartRadio, etc. AND if you are a really amazing person who still buys music (bless your heart) you will be able to purchase it as well on iTunes, Bandcamp, Google Play, Amazon, and every other digital retail location that is known to man.
In all honesty, this is one of my favorite songs that I have written and produced with friends. It turned out really lovely and I am so very thankful to have had such a wonderful cast of musicians who helped to flesh out the arrangement: Frank Reina on drums, Brad Cummings on bass, Scott Dibble on rhodes piano, and Tom Bremer on electric guitar. A song is only as good as the people you have playing on it and I am very fortunate to be surrounded by all these beasts of badassery.
The song was mixed by Ryan Lipman and mastered by Mark Chalecki. Thank you guys for making this sound so beautiful and pristine. I am in awe of your talent.
Artwork was done by myself and my friend Joshua Jon Day. I took the photograph and he helped me fashion a fabulous album cover out of it. I really find these old neon signs to be so beautiful.
I make no allusions of being a phenom when it comes to new releases. I cross my fingers that songs will connect with people and they will share. This song is no exception. However, I do try to do my part to find avenues of exposure for songs such as this. Spotify recently started a submission process for playlists on unreleased songs, and I submitted this tune for their consideration. Keep your fingers crossed that the curators find something to like in this song and select it for many a playlist.
Most importantly, thank you to everyone on Patreon who helps me to release this new material. I mean this with all my heart: I can't do it without you (I tried). This is working: what we are dong together. I am more prolific as an artist than I have been in years because of your financial help. I want to take a second to thank all of these individuals especially for their continued contributions and help: Erik Gomez, Amy Armitage, Heather Renz, Brandi, Bob Emerson, Joshua Jon Day, Carey Brown, and Tim Grobaty.
My deep and sincere gratitude for letting me do what I love to do: make music and play it.
