As circumstances sometimes dictate, I’m going to skip the prose and go straight to the news:
I’m a finalist in the USA Songwriting Competition in the Lyrics (“Go Away”) and Folk (“Let it Show”) Categories. Winners will be announced next Monday, but in the meantime you can vote in a new best song on Facebook category through today Friday 11/22 if that’s your thing!
Popdose has featured the opening track from Reckoning, “It’s All Right”, in “A Songwriter’s Story.” Check it out, here.
Tickets are now on sale for our full band show at The Cutting Room in NYC on Friday, January 17th, here.
It’s Hungerthon season at WhyHunger and I’ve set up a personal campaign to raise $2000. (i.e. $10 from 200 of you.. $5 from 400 of you.. $100 from 20 of you!) Please give if you can, here. You can also set up your own campaign, learn more about radio happenings, shop for goodies, and bid for exclusive Hungerthon auction items, here. http://hungerthon.org (Also benefitting WhyHunger is an innovative and immersive new app (for iphone & ipad) that tells the story of John Lennon’s 1980 trip to Bermuda and the origins of his “Double Fantasy” album.) And of course I’ll be playing solo as part of the ensemble this Saturday in a Hungerthon benefit in Park Ridge NJ.
We’re sticking to the northeast this winter but will be hitting the road again in the spring. Please consider putting a show in your plans if you are near Brooklyn, Long Island, Manhattan, eastern Mass, northern CT, or Rockland County NY..
Wonderful reviews for Reckoning continue to come in from the US and Europe. The latest was in the NJ Star Ledger a couple weeks ago and used the adjectives “pensive” and “spiritual” to describe the songs. Others hear a “cocky attitude” in there. And lots of interesting comments in between. What do you think? http://jenchapin.com
Thanks for listening!
