Dear Friends and Kickstarter Backers,
My website had a melt down and a few posts were lost when the Kickstarter campaign funded. Like all things, technology needs a little TLC every once in a while and I’m grateful to my designer for putting things back in order. In the meantime, I have been quite productive, so much so that we are preparing to launch A Sleepin’ Bee!! Truly thrilling.
Because of the Kickstarter family I have mastered, produced the artwork, manufactured the first run and received the boxes… all while traveling, teaching and taking gelato breaks. (Those of you that remember reading last summer’s posts know I have a serious problem with gelato during the summer months). It always feels like another family member joins the house when you unwrap that first copy of a new work. A Sleepin’ Bee is a welcome member to the prior all original three, and I hope that it finds a loving place in your listening collections.
Sandrine Lee provided a spirited image that we captured by running out into the misty night of the NYC streets and grabbing 6 shots before the rain chased us back inside. Burton Yount did a great job imagining a cover and package concept that harnesses the music and recording session. And now my PR folks are busy at work sending this out near and far to build the story and launch.
It is slated for release Sept 30, 2017. My Kickstarter folks will receive their hard copies and digital downloads ahead of that date for their generosity. And I will be setting up a chance for YOU to preorder your own copies very soon.
I can’t wait to share this with you. In the meantime, save a place for us in your jukebox.
