We are frantically packing up and jumping in the van. Yes, a van. I am so tired and completely bleary-eyed, but excited. Tonight I perform in New York City.
"Beatrix Runs" debuted at #24 on iTunes, and climbed to #16.
I have no words to express, really, how I feel. This album means so much to me and was crafted with so much love and care. I gave my everything into the process, and both Greg (my producer) and I really felt we made something special. And it appears that the world at large agrees with us. And it makes me want to cry (in the best possible way).
I hope the album will continue to connect with people and really get to fly. If you are reading this, please share the iTunes link (above) with your friends, loved ones, co-workers and classmates. After all, it's how the word gets out - not through commercial exposure or promotion. And I don't have those luxuries. But who needs them, when I have such listeners as you?
And here is something I did just before leaving for the tour - another cover. This is Irving Berlin's 'The Song Is Ended (But The Melody Lingers On).
Enjoy. I hope my melodies continue to linger on for a bit longer..
