2/14/22 - New Things Are On The Way (and a humble request)

Well hello there!

Now that the year of our higher power 2022 is upon us and in full swing, it's time to get the ball rolling on some updates! 

I've been hard at work on making updates and changes to the musical I'm writing, entitled "Inner Demons: The Musical!" which I am hoping to premiere in some fashion later this year (details to come!) The project is well on its way, and I am so happy with the progress I've been making on it in the past few weeks.  The show is based in part on music I wrote for my first album "Well, This is Something New" which came out late in 2020 while the world was falling apart even more than usual.  While I spent a great deal of time writing and performing that music, I never really got around to writing it all down.  But that's all changing and I couldn't be more excited to start bringing it to you in pieces!  I've already got the score written out for 4 of the pieces, and am hard at work on 3 more that I would love to finish by the end of the month.  Hopefully, I'll have the whole score (including a few new original pieces of music) ready to go by June!

Now's the time for the really exciting part - I've been in contact with some of my fellow vocal performer friends here in the Twin Cities area (and even some virtual special guests), and am happy to report that we are well on our way to having a full demo album to share with the world!   Alongside these wonderfully talented people, I hope to bring the album to your ears by late summer, with a concert of sorts presented LIVE in October - just in time for the spooky season to begin.

Now, dear reader, I know that you are as excited as I am to see what comes of all of these endeavors, as am I!  I also know (as I'm sure you realize) that it won't come to fruition without some support.  If you're willing and able, I would love for you to take a look over at my Patreon.  If you join, you not only get access to behind the scenes features of the writing and creating process, bonus content, and early access to new works... You also get to commission one or more PERSONALIZED songs that you can cash in throughout the year!  I'll write you just about anything you want (as long as it's legal) and you can use it for WHATEVER YOU WANT.  It's yours!   All of that and more is over at my Patreon, which you can check out by clicking HERE

You can also choose not to, and that's completely fine!  I believe in creating things that anyone can access, and I will continue to make things available that are for everyone.    And that brings me to my final endeavor - In addition to everything previously mentioned , I'm working on a new project that will help highlight local area performers and creators to give a little boost to the talent I see and hear around me every day in this chilly little corner of the world. Through interviews and features of their most recent work, I want to bring the world of their creation out to a broader audience. Look for our first feature at the end of February and each month following!

So there you have it - a (sort of) brief run down of what's in the works as well as what's coming at you in 2022.  Feel free to join our mailing list for more information on what's coming when it does!
