one more day

One more day in Minneapolis.

I have some more singing parts to do on my new cover tunes album.

We added a recording session tonight from 7-9pm.

This is important because the vibe of a record like this depends on several key factors and one is timing.

I need to do all the singing within a week or so because the timbre of my voice changes so much with the weather and the circumstances.

Rob G wants all the songs sung before I leave on the road for two weeks.

If we wait for me to come back to do the last two songs, those songs will sound different.

Spring will have come, I will feel differently about my self, my voice, my life.

And you will hear that.

This way, this album was all made in one hopeful time capsule, just before we headed out on a big road trip to the Southwest.

The album has been slated to be called "Songs From The Road" all along.

And that is what it's been all along.

Now we just have to make good on that.

Nina and I are going to be filming every day.

I want to use the Bob Dylan Desire album cover as my inspiration.

That's the feeling.

Hopeful.

Outside on the trail, being a rakish and joyful adventurer.

Feathers or flowers for my hat.

And a big smile on my face because I'm a believer.

"We had Disney, and Cronkite, and Martin Luther, and I believed, I believed, I believed..."

 Please consider making any size donation.

We have reached the halfway point to our fairly modest goal of $1500.

This gives us a budget of about $100 a day for gas, food, and lodging, a budget that may result in some sleeping in the car nights.

We'll do the very best we can.
