New Album Out Now | Live from the InSync Asylum: Volume 1
When I released the ‘In Trouble’ double single in late March of this year, I said it was from my upcoming album. This is not that album. It wasn’t until a few weeks back that it dawned on me I had another new album if I wanted one, sitting right there on my hard drive. After spending a little time remixing and mastering it, I think Volume 1 is a pretty special collection of songs, and a definite sign of the times. It’s also the first collection of songs I’ve ever done where you can watch the whole thing on YouTube. Without the unfortunate Covid-19 outbreak (which is still in full force in much of the world), this album would not exist. Check out Episode 19 of the Podcast where I discuss the album in detail…
Strange times indeed. After a conversation with an old friend the
other day who has contracted the Covid-19 virus, I decided to release
this double single In Trouble. My friend said the song came to him
during a feverish night. The first track will be on my upcoming album –
the 2014 version was slated for Trip Note, my 40 year retrospective.
Things change. I didn’t fret over this one – it was mixed and mastered
in a day and uploaded. Though it was written in 1983, It’s a song for
now I think. The 2014 version is actually a retread, and includes
pieces of the original 1983 eight track version. I hope to do a podcast
soon to share a bit more about that.
My new album Magic Moon is now available, and slowly showing up in stores. It’s my second covers album, and the follow up to Wheelhouse. I’ll write more about the album soon, but in the meantime check it out. If you like it, please download and share. thx PK
The second single from my upcoming album is now available. It’s one of my favorite songs by David Crosby. I was 11 years old when the first CSN album came out, and was already familiar with the Byrds hits that came before. I cut my teeth on these guys, and I think you can hear that in this track. It’s quite a bit different from the original, and takes the song in a different direction I think. Check out the CSN original and then take my version for a spin. If you like it, please download and share. thx PK
The first single from my upcoming album is now available. It’s my spin on a great recent John Mellencamp song, which stuck in my head. The arrangement is quite different from his, but to me, still sounds quite a bit like a Mellencamp tune. Let me know what you think. Please share it to your social media and with your friends, so we can see if it has any legs. And if you like it, please download. Thanks for supporting independent artists like myself… PK
I’ve been busy working on several projects simultaneously, and thought it was time to start releasing some stuff. With my current plan to release 6 albums worth of material, and 4 or more singles this year, I felt I better get to it. First off is a remix of When You Tell Me You Love Me, first released last year on Blue Tattoo. This is also currently the last track on album 6, for those keeping score. It’s pretty much the same performance from last year, with a lot of stuff removed. I did add some cajon and one shots, as well as a couple new tracks near the end of the song. I like it and currently prefer it to the album version, and hope you do too. Thanks for supporting Independent music, and please download and share it if you like it!
Happy New Year. Here’s a quick update on what’s happening music wise. I have a pile of stuff I’ve been working on for quite a while, which will see the light of day in 2019. The first to be released will be two covers albums – one consisting of songs written by others (and the follow-up to Wheelhouse). The other is an album covering my songs (and the follow up to A Matter of Time).
Both of these albums are a by-product of my 40 year retrospective ‘Trip Note’. To be released later in the year, Trip Note currently consists of two double albums of music recorded between 1978 and 2018. Volumes 1 and 2 feature approximately 50 plus unreleased tracks.
