Wow time has certainly slipped away and I have “updated” you all in my mind, I swear…but that doesn’t do you much good huh? Anyway, you have been in my thoughts as we’ve motored along on our local and distant shows.
Big news…the Purple Carrot Collaboration is done and going into replication this week! This is the “album in a day” we worked on in March with Rebecca Scott and Dan Costello! It turned out AWESOME, I’d have to say! It was SO cool to work with those two and the songs are groovy and fun! Let me know if you’d like a copy, I’m hoping to have some fresh copies on our way to Sandpoint!
NEXT WEEK: We play the Panida Theatre in Sandpoint!!!! Oct. 10th 7:30 pm!
This is such a full circle! I released my first album “Despite the Dents” on this stage almost 10 years ago! We were selected at last year’s Northwest Booking Conference to play for the Panida this year and are so excited to see some old friends! We hope those in the area can come to this special event!
The DVD….yes everyone is wondering WHEN that will be out. The good news is…the audio has been completed and a big part of the video has been edited. Now we are ready to marry the two…video and audio and I can’t wait to see the results.
We will do a final edit in the next month and I am working with an artist to complete the artwork. Then it goes to replication, but not until final editing and art work is finished…but it’s getting there. Hopefully before the year is out we’ll have the DVD finished AND a CD cut of the live show as well! So if you want to HEAR the songs from this show, we’ll have the “Blaze and Kelly Live at the Sapphire Room” CD. This is really exciting!
Pushing a huge body of work forward feels good! It’s been a GIANT undertaking getting Purple Carrots, Live at the Sapphire DVD and the Live at the Sapphire CD up and running. Wow…when I do something — I go BIG! Ha!
We are also working on new local venues and planning a tour to Seattle next week AND a tour in Arizona Nov. 7-14th! I’m happy to say Mo has been in on the full time music crusade with me since June and if feels wonderful to have her working with me on the administrative stuff for this “job” J
