My full-length record “The Clearing” officially has a release date AND is available for digital pre-order exclusively on Bandcamp.
When you pre-order The Clearing, you’ll get 2 tracks immediately (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released.
A little about the record:
“The Clearing” is my first full-length full-band record, featuring 10 songs that kicked off the Crooked Forest project. As with most all of my previous releases, this record was entirely self-recorded, written, played, and mixed by me in various stages over the last two years.
The album comes with 3 bonus tracks including the “Wasted Time” full-band demo and two previously unreleased acoustic recordings; an acoustic alternate of “Champagne Birthday” and a cover of Jimmy Eat World’s “Always Be”.
Given the nature of what inspired the record and the stories the songs tell, I wanted to release this on March 13th, 2022, marking 2-years sober from alcohol. I can’t say with certainty that this record would’ve never been made if I hadn’t made that decision on that day and, somehow, through the pandemic, a divorce, and multiple minor life crisis’ like abruptly quitting my job, managing to stick to it, but as someone that starting writing and playing music very young without ever realizing this dream, I have a hard time believing otherwise. I very much credit that effort as the sole reason for being able to be here today and share this with you.
After the record is released, I’ll also be publishing a series of blogs to better explain what each song is about much like I did with Jestem Krzywym Lasem. You can subscribe to the blog to get them delivered straight to your inbox as they’re published, or feel free to come back anytime.
Thanks very much for your support & I hope you like it, but it’s okay if you don’t, too.
