BIG NEWS! Spark and Shine Records is putting out the Swift Arrows LP (ON PINK VINYL + Digital Download w/ 2 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS!) on Jan. 21st, 2014! You can PRE-ORDER it now along with a special, limited-edition beanie cap!
Also, if you'd like to make it a gift, we'll even send you a printable gift card in time for the holidays!
I'm happy to report that positive reviews are streaming in for the new record. I know, I know, I'm not supposed to read reviews or care what the critics say, but it's HARD not to. Mostly, I'm just happy that people are digging this music. It means a lot to me!
To check out other recent reviews/articles, visit the PRESS page.
Also, a BIG thanks to everyone who's bought the record so far.
Here's to Swift Arrows' glorious first week in the world!
You can STREAM THE WHOLE ALBUM FOR FREE (today only) and purchase a digital or physical copy at Bandcamp, CD Baby, Amazon or iTunes. If you're in Seattle you can pick up a copy at Sonic Boom, Easy Street, Everyday Music or Silver Platters.
If you missed the release show last weekend, come by Sonic Boom Records, Ballard at 6pm TONIGHT to catch the encore show!
Lastly, I really hope you enjoy the new tunes.
I've kept this news in my hat for a while now because Damien Jurado is blowing up (though to many of us he's always been HUGE) and I was terrified he was going to call me up and say "Bob Dylan is taking me on tour and I can't produce your record after all," but THANKS BE, the scheduling fates have aligned and we were able to start recording together this week (YAYAYAYAYAY!)! We are now just 4 1/2 days in to the process and it's already been a magical experience - for everyone involved. Damien is a wonderfully supportive, strong, and creative force in the studio, and I am growing immensely as an artist working with him. Songs are evolving, fears/insecurities are falling away, and I am becoming increasingly more and more excited about this collection of songs.
I'm so grateful.
I absolutely cannot WAIT to share the love and magic with you all! Here are a few shoddy iPhone pics from our time at Columbia City Theater this week. More pals are coming in next week to lend their respective talents to the project so stay tuned for news and updates!
