It's been a weird year, eh? The story I had originally crafted for 2020 involved a summer on the road in the mountain west culminating with the release and subsequent tour for my debut full-length album "Geography." It's a beautiful record that I am excited to share with you... but it just doesn't feel right to release it when I can't plan to get out on the road to celebrate with the souls from far and wide who make up the Geography of my heart.
But I realized this summer that an idea I've kicked around for a couple of years was JUST the record we need as we kiss this mad year goodbye: a non-holiday holiday record of cover songs that are just the melancholy hope we need to launch 2020 into hindsight. Let's face it: most of us will, in fact, be dancing alone as the clock strikes midnight this year, so let's raise a glass with the hope that this year will be better than the last.

So far, I have covered all of my up-front costs of production as follows:
The great thing about all of this is that I have already assumed all the risk, so you don't have to. Provided production turnaround times don't shift, all physical copies will be in my hands no later than early-mid December--just in time for me to send them to you as stocking stuffers. This project is happening and I am really proud of the work Kyle and I did with these songs. I believe it is a product you will be proud to share with your friends and family year-round.
In a word, YES! In an age where we can have anything and everything we want through a quick search on our phones, a lot of audiophiles are returning to the experience of enjoying intentional listening at home and the preferred format for that has almost always been vinyl. To enhance your home listening experience, we have even worked out some bonus material that will ONLY be available on vinyl and CD. Furthermore, if you want to collect this piece on vinyl just to have something special, you will still receive a digital download of the tracks, so your digital library will remain in tact!
