Greetings from Collinsville: Sept. 2020 Newsletter
Hi friends, I hope this message finds you well. I know it’s been a while since I’ve shared an update so here’s the latest news from Collinsville.
As many of you know, I recorded a new album DAMN GIRL! with my touring band quite a while back and we held a special ALL-IN pre-sale campaign to help pay for it. Due to the whole world coming apart, we had to put a hold on the project until we got our feet back on the ground. I’m happy to announce we are now shipping all the packages and goodies that were ordered and the album will soon be available on Amazon Music, Spotify, iTunes and many more.
BIG LOVE to everyone that was part of the journey to new music and as a token of appreciation, every ALL-IN purchase comes with a free tote bag. It's been a long road filled with many obstacles but we made it with the help of so many wonderful friends and fans around the world. The support and extra love we've been shown has been nothing short of amazing!
My web-store is also back up and running and has lots of things for you to choose from including a few free and discounted items. For a limited time, all tour T-shirts are FREE! Unfortunately, we have no shows scheduled for the rest of the year. I don’t know what 2021 will bring but I'll let ya know when I find figure it out.
On a bright note, I've recently had the opportunity to record with some of my friends. Al's band from the 90’s, SLAMMIN’ GLADYS just finished making a great new record called SG-TWO! I played a bit of harp and sang some background vocals on it (my brothers from another mother ~ I made my singing debut on their first record in 1992!). The first single will be released in October.
Also, my Norwegian buddy Kare invited me to play on a song for his band BONY MARONIE. Their latest record is titled Still Sucks! and I play harp on the song “You’re A Star”. You can listen to it now on Spotify.
Well, that's the latest in my world. It's been a tough year losing my tour, day job, social media accounts and step-father to Covid 19. I've pretty much just hunkered down trying to rebuild a life filled with happiness and gratitude for the here and now, which is all we can do in times like these. I know so many people are experiencing hardships but I hope you are finding your way and keeping your head above water as best you can. I look forward to better days for everyone. Until then, take care and keep on rockin’!
Peace & Love,
