Forbidden Folk is My Kinda Folk

Driving back from the Kansas City Folk Alliance my throbbing head swelled with hope. Hope for mankind, hope for music, and even a bit of hope for musicians. The highlights include….Stig Nielsen, Billy Joe Shaver, Ray Bonneville, Tim Easton, Rod Picott, Ben De La Cour, Pal Uber murder plots, the Billy Bragg bacon cheeseburger (for the name not the taste), Anne Mccue, All the Green Room peeps, Jim Beam, The barefoot Movement, Captain Lou Demarco, Galen Lee, strange plot twists in puppy tales, a hundred dollars worth of pizza, leaky eyes, rolling laughter, and 3am bed chatter.

Please Help To Release First World Blues

First World Blues has been recorded and mixed. It’s “in the can” as you might say. However, there are a couple little steps in between “the can” and your hands.

One is mastering, which, for those who do not know, is the “dark art” in record making. Those mastering engineers can really make those songs pop.  We don’t really know how. We don’t. But a good one does it, so we need a good one.

The second is duplication. We need to make tons of babies to go around. CDs first, and if we do really well, maybe vinyl down the line. Hell, cassettes are even a possibility…Na.

Third and final is hiring someone to get the damn word out about this record. You see, there are probably a hundred thousand or so records released every day, the chances of someone hearing this one is slim to none, unless we hire a professional mover and shaker. We need to make sure we hire a professional mouthpiece. A carnival barker. We need to cold call every music fan in the world. We’ll get to you, don’t you worry.

If we can raise the kroner to put this out, we’ll be forever indebted to you. You can help by watching the video above and following this link:
