Its Here! READY is Ready!!



After a long wait, I am proud to present my latest CD, “Ready’! You can sample all the songs on my website, as well as sign up for my newsletter to receive up to date information on shows, new music, special offers, and promotions! You can also purchase CDs and downloads from CD Baby, and DigStation! “Ready” will also be available on iTunes and many other music sites in the weeks to come! 

This has been a work of love, and I’m so happy to finally put it out in the world! It contains 11 songs, all written and sung by me. All are brand new, except for “As We Rise”, which is a brand new version of a song never before released on CD. I look at this CD as a journey, both for the listener and for me as an artist. 

For the listener, the songs somewhat form a life journey – from childhood (“Boy”), through self doubt (“Going Blind”), to old age (“Lines On My Face”), and finally to self acceptance (“I’ve Arrived”). 

As an artist, my journey was similar. Starting from a place of not knowing anything (other than wanting to make a trip-hop flavored CD), I found myself with a new sense of openness. Many of the songs changed their form (lyrics and music) several times before production began. I wasn’t attached to any ideas or intended outcomes to any of the songs. I let them (the songs) dictate what direction they would take. They guided me, rather than my shaping them. It was a very exciting and new process for me. 

After an unanticipated wait (you can read more about that in my past blogs), I am THRILLED to release “Ready”! As I say in the CD’s liner notes, “i hope you enjoy taking this musical journey as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!”

GIve a listen, and share it with friends!!

Thanks for all your support!!

Jay
