Off My Lawn Available for Pre-Order

Hi, gang —

I type this with fingers sticky from applying mailing labels to envelopes. The new album, Off My Lawn, is complete and I’ve been busy mailing hundreds of copies to radio stations, hoping to get some traction in today’s upside-down music world. On the bad days, it feels like shouting into the void. On the good days, it’s more like shouting from a mountaintop. Fortunately, there are more good days than bad. This is my mountaintop for today.

The official album release date for Off My Lawn is June 18. That means that you can come to the release party from 6-9pm at Rising Silo Brewery in Blacksburg. I’ll have the band (Old Man Kelly and the Streetsweepers) on hand playing cuts off the new album, and Rising Silo willl be serving up some of the best micro-brewed beer that Virginia has to offer. And of course, we’ll have copies of Off My Lawn available for sale, both in CD format and via digital download cards. We’d love to share a celebratory pint with you! But if you can’t make it, you share a virtual pint instead, as the online version of the album will on sale the same day. You can buy directly from me via my CDBaby store, or find it on the usual iTunes/Amazon/Etc. sites. (I’m not releasing Off My Lawn to the streaming sites until 3-6 months after the download release, because those sites are uniformly awful about paying musicians.)

But if you’re an iTunes user, you can pre-order the album today! Pre-ordering gets you advance access to the first song on the album, “Exitville”, and the rest of the album will be made available on June 18. Be the envy of your friends! Have nice stuff first!

As ever, THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who come to shows, buy songs and albums from independent musicians, and help us promote and share our music. You really and truly are the reason that we do this, and the reason that it can work. My upcoming schedule is below. Come out to a show! And get Off My Lawn!
