“Quarantine Blues” Tour Rescue Recording

Well, like many musicians, our tour has been shattered. We are flying home from Europe with only a handful of the 30 shows we were scheduled to perform. The band and myself included will be hurting financially for the next month or so and we are all 4 facing a 14 day quarantine starting Monday March 16th. So I have decided to write, record, mix and master an album while I am quarantined in my recording studio. I will write the songs and record the demo parts and send them to the members of my band who will record their individual instruments at their homes where they are quarantined and then send the parts back to me where I will mix the final recordings and master the album at my studio. Our goal is to be as creative as possible and complete a timely, entertaining blues album and offer it to you in 14 days, the full quarantine term. This recording will not be available via distribution, or on ITunes or Amazon, it will only be available through my website for download or cd. Every dollar you give to this project will go directly to myself and my band members: Matt Johnson, Doug Byrkit and Lewis Stephens. It is solely to offset the loss of our current tour and make creative use of our quarantine. This process will begin Monday March 16 and be completed on March 30th for your listening pleasure. I will post live videos of the process and let you share in the experience. We will offer some very special opportunities for those who can give more and give this music to the world in return. We know it’s crazy right now and we don’t feel right begging for your assistance when those in more need may require help. So we wanted to offer you something special for your support. Something that is real and right now. We are musicians and that’s what we do, we create and perform music, so we will make music for you and anything in return will be much appreciated. God bless and please be safe!
