Dear Wonderful People,
Do you know that feeling when you’re thinking about something and then, all of a sudden, you start to see it everywhere? Everywhere you go and everyone you talk to seems to be connected somehow to that random something? That’s what happened to me while I was making this record.
We set out to make a 70s inspired record. So, when we first started out I re-listened to all my favorites from that time. Which of course, led me to remember being a kid, remember my clothes, my toys, the people in my life. Those songs, those albums, are tied to my memories in a way that cannot be unwound.
So that’s where the title for the album came from, TAKING ME BACK, because everything this past year seems to be taking me back. And we did our best to do things the way they did then. Mike, Dale, Ed, Tony, and I recorded the basic tracks all in one room together. Tony ran all the tracks onto tape…and we are pressing them into vinyl with a luscious jacket and liner notes so you can dig into the details.
We’re gonna take you back with us.
THANK YOU for pre-ordering your copy! Your pre-orders and bundle-buying are going to help me as I order my first batch of CDs and vinyl, which is wicked pricey. Just in case you’re wondering, the other bundles of love listed here below will go directly to pay off the production costs of TAKING ME BACK. Any extra money we raise here goes into the production jar for the next album so we can keep plying this world with music.
Thank you SO MUCH for your support! I am SO crossing-my-fingers that you love this album as much as we do.
