Hello again, sports fans! Been a while. Let me just start off by saying The Orioles are in first place and it's September. Very strange, not sure really how to deal with it.
OK, back to music, and a few other Fall items (a bit of
self-promotion, I'm afraid):
#1 - Matt and I have been busy working on some recorded
material, and I'm very proud to say that we've now made it
available via download on the CDBaby.com site. It's a mini-album, with a reworking of "Mabelline"
that includes Bill Beachler on drums, along with three other new
songs we wrote. Yes, we're selling it, but it's only $3.50!
Eventually we may have it available in disc form, but for now
it's a download-only release. Here's the link:
or just copy this: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/samnitzberg into your browser to hear samples or to purchase. Or you can find the songs on iTunes, Spotify, Rhapsody, etc., too. And if you like it, tell your
friends! Or tell me! If you don't, don't.
#2 - As mentioned in these ramblings before, Matt and I are also
going to be appearing in three weeks, on Saturday, September 29th
as part of the Woody Guthrie 100th Birthday Celebration at the
Creative Alliance. It's bound to be a great night, there are some
terrific acts who will also be appearing: The Stone Hill All Stars
(who will be backing us up on a couple of tunes), Arty Hill, The
Honey Dewdrops, Caleb Stine, The Hello Strangers, and Michael
Patrick Flanagan Smith. Here's the link to the Creative Alliance
page for tickets, a promotional video, and info: http://www.creativealliance.org/events/2012/woody-guthrie-happy-100th-tribute
come if you can, should be great -- I'm really looking forward to
hearing all the other performers, actually.
And #3 - We're also slated to appear at the Roots Cafe
Singer-Songwriter Series at An Die Musik on Sunday, November 11th
at 5pm. I'll bother you about that again as it gets closer, more
than likely, but just in case I don't, consider yourself notified.
OK, enough for now. Hope to see you somewhere sometime.
