Grand in a flash!

from June 11th, 2010:

I got an exciting message earlier this week from Jeff at the studio that he'd had a cancellation and was able to finish mastering the tracks. I had no idea they would be ready so fast...not that I'm complaining. So I made my way to Galuminum Foil Studios in the pouring rain to collect my treasures and safely store the discs in a plastic bag....oh I double bagged that jam! Those are my babies. I will not be letting them out of the nest just yet.  I haven't even started to think of album art yet and I'm only beginning to plan the release party.

In other news, I gave my notice at Columbia and will be pursuing creative enterprises full time, beginning in September.  Yaya!  But more news on that later....

In the Mix

I'm officially done recording, and it's a big relief (although kind of sad it's over).  Jeff has mixed 6 out of 7 songs and at the risk of sounding cocky and for lack of a better phrase, they sound F***ing Awesome.  I can't wait to share them with everyone.  MAJOR props to Producer, Jeff Berner at Galuminum Foil Studios.  I've set the date of the release party for Thursday, September 23rd in Williamsburg (location to be announced), and there's a lot to take care of beforehand, including mastering, album art, rehearsals, etc.  I will, of course, torture my inner circle of friends with multiple listening parties, and demand delightful ego stroking.  Be gentle, I'm a fragile flower ;)

In other news, watched "Men Who Stare at Goats" yesterday and laughed my ass right off.  My kind of movie, dark comedy with my favorite Dude, Jeff Bridges.

Coming up this week, I have a gig with the Dead Copycats on Tuesday, June 8th at Local 269 bar on the Lower East Side at 9pm.  We're opening for a friend's band, The Miki Doras, so it should be a congenial fun time.  Click HERE for the location.
