Friends,

For everyone who didn’t have a chance to grab a copy during the Pledge

advance of the official projected release on May 7th. If you pre-order the
record now you will be able to stream the record in its entirety from the
Pledge site prior to release. In addition, there will be a limited number
of perks you can buy only from the Pledge site!!! As always, thanks for
your love and support. I hope to see you at a show soon.

Hi friends,

I’m going to make a new album and I’m asking for your help. An album unlike any of my previous recordings.

This time, I’m going to use a more stripped down acoustic approach. Not the full band sound I used on Avenue C or Wake Up And Dream. I’m enlisting the help of a few great musicians and a wonderful new producer. Musician-wise, I’m going to use the brilliant bass player/guitarist Tony Scherr. Tony is well known here in New York and plays with Bill Frisell and Paul Scofield as well as Norah Jones and tons of other great people. Also, I’m going to use the guitarist/ multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell. I’m sure you all know Larry for his work with Bob Dylan and the Levon Helm band (which is where I first met him), but he has played with countless other amazing musicians including Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris,Willie Nelson, Paul Simon and tons of others. The producer Matt Pierson has worked in the jazz world with the likes of Brad Mehldau and Joshua Redman, to name two of the world class guys Matt has produced.

I believe that with this kind of approach, with these musicians and a few more special guest players along the way, we can make a beautiful, timeless recording of ten or twelve of my songs. This more intimate setting will lend itself to a collection of songs I have been writing recently and songs that I have had running around my head – in some cases for ten years or more.

Last year we were able to raise enough money to record Wake Up And Dream thanks to the generosity of many of my fans, and I believe we can do it again.

Yours sincerely,

James Maddock
