Hey everyone, Julian Shore here.
So I’ve recently set out to record a new album of my original music with a truly special group of musicians. It features Dayna Stephens, Gilad Hekselman, Aidan Carroll and Colin Stranahan as well as guests Noah Preminger, Godwin Louis and Kurt Ozan. There may be some exciting additions too along the way, but you’ll have to stay tuned for that (for now).
For the last several years I’ve been writing a lot of new music, with a very specific group of musicians in mind, and we’ve been playing it for quite some time now. The songs themselves are inspired by everything from places I’ve been or imagined, to my friends and family, and even dreams. One thing that I’ve tried to maintain throughout all of it however, is the feeling of surprise and wonder that accompanies exploration and creation.
I’ve started tracking with the folks I mentioned above, but there’s still so, so much left to do. Finishing a record is such a long and taxing process, but it’s one that I can’t wait to get started! And I’d love nothing more than to have you along for the ride. If you pre-order the record you’ll get access to all sorts of updates, whether that’s sneak peeks, alternate takes, a look into the studio or other cool things. You’ll also be the very first to get the record, before it’s released. There are also a lot of neat exclusive options that further involve you in this journey so be sure to give them a look!
Also, I’ll be donating 5% of every pledge to Musicians On Call, an organization comprised of volunteer musicians who provide live music to patients undergoing treatment or unable to leave their beds.
Thanks so much for supporting me and my music, and I hope you’ll join in this adventure.
