"No Solo" will be my first ever solo EP release (seemingly contradictory title, but as it happens, it's quite apt).
I initially named it "No Solo" for a few reasons.
One, because I realize that the creation of these songs and spoken word pieces didn't happen in a vacuum. I am filled with the music, words and ideas of countless artists, creatives, humans and other beings. I am never solo, even as I sit alone in a studio listening back to a single voice, and my fingers strumming a guitar.
Two, because I realize that the production of this project sure as shit didn't happen solo. I am so lucky to know radically creative musicians and engineers and without the co-production support from Michael, Jordan and Rich, this EP would simply not exist.
And thirdly, I can't release this solo :) I need your help in getting this art out there - I need the support of this rad community to uplift this work and share it to all those who want, need and appreciate radical grassroots and independent music, spoken word and visuals!
So - now, to the capitalist part :)
My hope had initially been to recoup costs via touring but who the hell knows when that will be viable again.
Of course, you might ask why I don't just wait to release the EP. Well, because to me each album is a snapshot in time - it's an audio image of who I was, where I was, what I was thinking, feeling and doing. I already feel odd releasing it more than a year after I recorded it. To wait any longer would be to essentially shelve it - and I DEFINITELY don't wanna do that.
So, I'm asking for your help in getting this EP out there:
• making sure it's accessible to folks regardless of their finances - it will be available on a sliding scale
• promoting and spreading the word about this work
• producing a limited run of vinyl
• filming, editing and producing two music videos
Anyone who donates here will get the EP for free once it's out!
Thanks in advance for reading, sharing and supporting radical grassroots and independent art! <3
