Post-NERFA News

Wow. NERFA is always fun but this year was particularly special as this was the coming-out party for Sticky.  The 60-second clip of “Bride of Frankenstein Hair” that was played at the On the Griddle session was well-received by the panel of DJs and the assembled audience.  Imagine how they’ll feel when they hear the rest of it, not to mention the whole album.

It was great to play a few showcases, jam with other fantastic musicians, and share the new disc with presenters, DJs, and other members of the folk community.  Looking forward to continue spreading the Sticky gospel.

Which brings me to the news that Sticky is now available through CD Baby.  Click on the Media link to purchase downloads or the whole physical album.  Huzzah!

It’s NERFA Time!

I’ll be introducing Sticky to all of the fine people of the folk music community this weekend at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) conference in Kerhonkson, NY.  If you’re at the Hudson Valley Resort please come say howdy, get a sticker and get a copy of the new disc.  I think you’re going to like it.  See ya there!

If you’re not going to NERFA, check the Gigs page to find out when/where I’ll be playing.   Sticky will be available on CD Baby and iTunes very very soon.  Woot!
