It’s been a while since I’ve checked in with you all. In part that’s due to the new season of LOST starting up. But primarily it’s because I’ve been focusing my musical energies on a brand new project. Katie Clarke, Stephanie Marshall, and I recently joined forces to form The Boxcar Lilies – a high-energy Americana trio with a passion for great songwriting and three part harmonies.
We’re headed into the studio this May with the gifted producer and engineer Dave Chalfant (Erin McKeown, Beth Amsel, The Nields, The Winterpills) to record our first CD together. We’ve got the songs written, arranged, and ready to go, but we need to raise additional money to record them all, and so I’m inviting you to participate in The Boxcar Lilies CD Presale.
Pre-order the CD and you’ll be among the first to receive it when it’s complete. There are a variety of packages to choose from, ranging from a single signed CD to a Boxcar Lilies gift pack, or free tickets to a show. There’s even a package that includes The Lilies taking your song request. Is it your heart’s desire to hear the Lilies cover Lady Gaga? Well there’s a package for you. (If it’s your heart’s desire to see the Lilies dressed like Lady Gaga, however, that will cost considerably more. But hey, make us an offer.)
To show our gratitude for all of you that help us to continue to make music, we’ll send you an early mp3 or two and keep you updated on our progress and all shipping is free.
You can also get updates by joining The Boxcar Lilies mailing list.
I haven’t retired from my solo music career, but in the near future I’ll be focusing more on The Boxcar Lilies. We have some shows coming up and are getting ready to add more for the summer. So please join The Lilies’ mailing list to keep up to date.
Okay stop reading this and get outside. It’s gorgeous and the sun is shining!
