Something exciting just happened. The five original members of Smalltown Poets are back in the studio. This hasn’t occurred since the recording of our second album, Listen Closely in 1998. While the five of us have created some music since then, due to the miracle of modern day recording, we were not all there together at the same time. We’ve been looking forward to this reunion for a long time coming and are overjoyed that production on a new album has finally begun.
While collaborating and creating music in real time has been significant, it’s more than that. Over the years we each have been involved in music projects with other great musicians, but about four years ago we found ourselves playing a few live shows together and realized the special chemistry between us. It was at this time we explored the idea of creating new music together.
We are all impacted by the family connection that drove us to sharpen one another over a decade ago and continues to shape us today. We’re better husbands, dads, friends and musicians because of one other. We are more than Smalltown Poets the band now; we are the Smalltown Poets family. We are delighted to bring this deeper, richer purpose to the recording process. To be together feels like home after an extended trip away.
So the big news is that we’re making a new Christmas record! Through this whole new paradigm of PledgeMusic, artists and fans can come together in the creation process. This fresh take on making a record allows fans to preorder new releases from bands they love. It also allows us to invite you to be part of the journey more than ever before. As you make a pledge to pre-order the album you help our recording budget grow. We get to plan more studio time, record more music, and give you special Smalltown Poets experiences and behind the scenes access to the creation process that is not available to anyone else. We’ve started making something special, but we can’t get to the finish line without our extended Smalltown Poets family coming together to help make it with us.
We look forward to the journey!
Michael, Danny, Kevin, Byron, and Miguel
