In light of the difficult times artists are facing right now, the very kind folks at Bandcamp are suspending all their fees for sales – for 24 hours – from midnight to midnight (Pacific) today.

I have three albums up there, plus an album of remasters/extra cuts… PLUS I’ve set up a full discography price of 16 bucks for the lot! You can find it all here:

Thanks, and much love to all.

 

 

 

In the last remaining hours
of another year
about to end

I just had to take a moment
and thank you
for being my friend

The world was better ’cause you were here
and the moments we shared
were dear to me

And I can’t wait to spend another year
with you.

And many more. 🙂

I did the audio mixes and video editing on these, for my dear friends in the Geezüs Butlers band.

I’ve lived in the city of Kingston, New York for over 10 years. It is my home, in a way that no other place has ever been.

Which makes me particularly proud to have been accepted for a wonderful, nationally-growing event – The O+ (O Positive) Festival, which is based on a really simple idea:

Underinsured artists and musicians create and perform, in exchange for a variety of services – donated by doctors, dentists and complementary care providers.

O+ calls this exchange “the art of medicine for the medicine of art.”

O+ was founded here in 2010, by a small group of artists-activists, doctors and a dentist. Since then, it has expanded big time. It’s now a national nonprofit, working in cities around the country. And once a year, it takes over this whole city – not just music venues, but the whole city – not just musicians, but visual artists as well.

Nani Chacon working on her mural for the O+ Festival

The factory building I live in is graced by a mural painted by Nani Chacon, which she lovingly created during the O+ Festival last year. Our city is covered in these murals from previous years.

The O+ Festival lasts all weekend long. Virtually every venue in the city takes part. You can get a 3 DAY all-access festival wristband for a suggested donation of only $50, which includes a limited-edition T-shirt as a thank you ($75 donation includes a “Be Prepared” sweatshirt)!

I’ll be playing Saturday night, October 6th, at The Anchor in Kingston – 744 Broadway – with a bunch of great folks.
