Dylan Blackthorn’s solo album, “Small Flames”

Help me make an album - an album of my original music.

Inspiration, creativity, new growth. These small flames of epiphany will smolder and fade without fuel for the fire.  I invite you to add that fuel, by pre-ordering a CD ($24) or download code ($9).  The funds raised will be used to pay the talented studio musicians I have chosen to back me up, and a skilled audio engineer to produce the most effective translation of my musical vision into reality.   

For 21 years, I have been collecting and learning tunes and songs that speak truth to me in music.  I have spread those seeds far and wide, indeed,  the world over.   In that time, I have found and nurtured my own muse as a singer/songwriter, composer, & poet.   Now, my muse has matured, & I wish to sing my truth to the world - such wisdom as I have acquired, from the rooftops, the alleyways, the stages - such as they are.  

I have played at your weddings, festivals, graduations, campfires, parties, funerals, parades, even your dog’s birthday parties, and I have been inspired each time.   Thank you for inviting me to share your joy and creations with me.

I ask you to help me fullfill this wish, through a pre-order of my forthcoming album, or with an act of generosity.   For a  $24.00+ donation, I will ensure that you get a physical copy of my forthcoming album, Small Flames, in CD format.  All who donate $9.00 or more will receive a download code via email.

The album will feature my lovely and talented wife Samantha Goldberg-Blackthorn on Flute, Tinwhistle, & Xylophone; master of the harmonica Michael Rubin; Tuba and bass by Longhorn Band alumnus Tom Crail; expert jazz and bluegrass picker Noaa Rienecker, and many other special guest artists.  I will produce the album along with long time co-conspirator Dr. $ick (of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, Cantiga, and 999 EYES Freakshow & Surreal Sideshow) as my assistant producer.

Thank you for your consideration,
Dylan McNeill Goldberg Blackthorn
