Garland Jeffreys’s project is done but don’t be sad, there’s a new one…
Thanks for following! You'll get any future updates.
I’ve made a lot of albums over a lot of years and I took a long time before making my last record, The King of In Between. Going independent was a big step, but this is even bigger — this is the first time I’ve invited friends and fans to be directly involved with the process of making a record, and I’m really looking forward to it—especially since I’m the kind of artist who leaves the stage and spends so much time talking to people after the show that the band starts hanging around and giving me dirty looks! I genuinely love connecting with my fans and am happy that many of them have become friends. Pledge is also a cool way for me to connect with fans around the world in places I haven’t yet been able to play.
So here we go! Everyone who pledges gets a digital download of the new album once it’s ready.
As soon as you pledge, you get access to the ‘pledger-only’ part of the site. You’ll get rough demos, videos from the studio, updates about the recording, gems from the archives…you’ll be fully immersed in this album as its being made. You can also choose from lots of exclusives, like a dinner at my house (Claire is a pretty good cook), a day with me in Coney Island, and lots more.
Even better, a portion of the pledges will go to the Beth Israel Medical Center “Favors for Neighbors” program, which supports elderly people in Stuyvesant Town, my NYC home.
Thanks to all my fans and supporters for pitching in and making this happen. You’ve been sustaining me for a long time but now I really can’t do it without you.
See you on the road!
