Hoping all is well with you and yours. For me, October has been a complete blur. Happy Halloween in advance!
I’ve been on a whirlwind ride! Just got back from a fabulous trip to London. I was pretty busy everyday, meeting with people and discussing our new album DON’T ASK. All that have heard it are blown away by the tunes. Feels so good!
Last week I was at Abbey Road Studios. Honestly I don’t know how many times I have been there, but each return is always fun. I didn’t sign the wall on this trip, but it looked like everyone else did. Am always amazed by the wall. It’s white and just screams, write something!!!!!!!!!!! :)
Geoff Pesche, my guy at AR, commented that I had created a monster in DON’T ASK! How cool is that? Anyway, the big news is that we’ve decided to make DON’T ASK in vinyl too. Ditto the same for the previous album ASK. I flew home from London, guarding my first vinyl LP’S. What a feel good.
Mastering vinyl records is a very cool thing to watch. I used my iPhone to record a video and you may have seen the postings on Facebook. Geoff had a long fun doing and Phil Tennant and I, were all smiles. Really fun.
So I get on the plane and put the albums in the luggage area. Soon, this guy comes down the aisle carrying a bunch of stuff, and I just knew he was going to stop right where I was sitting. I thought, OMG! So I was nice, explained about 2 masterpieces I was guarding with me life!:) All good, he got it.
Yesterday we had a rehearsal, and Jordan brought over a new turn table so we could hear the tracks. I swear vinyl is a superior sound to CD’s, and especially MP3’s which I hate anyway. Honestly I think I will start my own vinyl collection in addition to the ones I still have. It really is exciting. All of us had a blast listening to. All of us are really excited.
The graphics are being worked on, and that’s a time consuming thing too. The plan is to have all the lyrics, photos, and credits etc, just like on ASK. Both in vinyl will be a first class product.
While in London, I also spent an entire day being filmed for a new EPK. Did a cool interview and also did a couple of tunes live. I think when it’s completed, it will be really fun to watch. I know it was fun to do. I don’t remember much though…..all happens so fast and with a bit of jet lag, my memory gets a bit out there. Nothing new!
Met also with radio plugger people, Press, PR….the usual. All good. Also got a chance to go shopping at All Saints Spitafields, my favorite store in London.
So this Saturday night, 10-26, we’re doing a show at the Park West in Chicago. Hoping our Chicago fans can make it. We get so inspired by crowds. Guarantee it will be a fun night. Thinking we will come on about 8:45 PM. Looking forward to seeing old friends and of course, making new ones too. Come on out and let’s rock Chicago!!!!!
