I’m pleased, today. Not just because I’m in Germany, which is always nice – and the shows in Hamburg and Giessen were both great fun. Today I am mostly pleased because the album I made with my good friend Jon Snodgrass is now available for pre-order! Yay! To recap (for those not paying attention at the back), Jon and I wrote the 10-song album one day and recorded it the next earlier this year. The record is on 10″ vinyl and you can pre-order a copy right here – it’ll be shipped at the start of November. At the moment, it’s being pressed and released in the UK. We are looking to get a US release organized in the very near future, but for now you can get in at the link above. Exciting times!
In other release-related news, the EP recording went swimmingly. We’re just tweaking mixes now, and we’re on track for a late November release.
Next up, show news. We’ve added a headline show in Toronto, at the Horseshoe Tavern on October 22nd. I’m excited to be heading back there. That’s the last show addition for the fall run in North America. Speaking of which, both the DC and Minneapolis shows are now sold out. As, for that matter, is the Berlin show next week. Huzzah!
Finally, two bits of plugging for you. First of all, I was recently part of a photography project called “A-Z Of London Singer-Songwriters”, shot by Dylan Walker. The project is being exhibited at City Hall from September 28th to October 15th. Worth checking out, I think. Also, my friend Jon Spira (who shot the “Photosynthesis” video) has recently finished his documentary about the history of Oxford music, which features interviews with Nigel and others. You can view the trailer here. Enjoy.
