Hello Friends:

I am partnering with PledgeMusic to complete my new album and invite you to become involved.

I’ve just written and recorded a new album “Walking In The Green Corn.” It’s personal, intimate and I’ve made it with my own two hands in the quietest hours of the night. Stark as ever, this collection is largely drawn from the deep inspirational well of my own Native American heritage, a reservoir which has long informed my songwriting and creative sensibilities at large. This collection of songs was born out of a longing to understand where I come from, the meaning of our traditions and what it means to be a mixed blood Native person today.

The Native story is one of incredible perseverance, a rich and diverse history that is still being written. A proud tribal member of the Muskogee Creek Nation, these songs are my way of honoring my ancestors and to stand and be counted. The title track is inspired by The Green Corn Dance. A custom held by the Creek and other southeastern tribes., it is a time of gratitude and renewal. The potency of metaphor found in indigenous stories is as relevant today as ever. They sing to a deep part of us all.

In my own work, I find that dreams, confession and myth intertwine. Given the deeply personal significance of this collection, I can’t think of a more direct way than PledgeMusic to share this album. It has been my experience that purist means of conveying my music has always been the most satisfying. Often with little means, I’ve made my best work. What I love most is capturing a feeling, a space in time, like lightning in a bottle. That’s what this about.

“Walking In The Green Corn” was entirely recorded on my own without label support. I’ve never made a more personal and homespun album, but I could use your support. Mastering, manufacturing, marketing, promotional funding and tour support are needed to fully realize this campaign.

It is my sincere hope that you will support this special project by making a pledge to pre-order the album and take part in the greater pledge drive, taking advantage of the some of the great offers that are up for grabs. You’ll have access to exclusive videos and updates about the album and its release, as well as news on live performances and more! Many thanks!

[message about original artwork to the right…]

When I’m not writing songs and changing guitar strings I’m apt to busy myself with drawing, painting and printmaking. My artwork has long been integrated into the album design process, a stage that I’ve come to embrace as much as the music itself. Working with Pledge Music, some of my original hand-made prints and drawings are now available. There a several lino-cuts on hand-made paper. Each is one of a kind, given the subtle variations of the materials and the fact that I do it by hand. There also some giclée prints, which are inkjet prints for fine art. The giclée prints are enlarged, often based on my linocuts, scratchboard or drawings and digitally colored. There are also few original works on paper that were featured in the album art of Grant Lee Buffalo, including a favorite pen and ink drawing from the album Copperopolis. Finally I am offering a few handprinted silkscreen T shirts. All works are signed. Please have a browse around the PledgeMusic gallery! Grant-Lee
