Writing the next record and other news

Posted on February 17, 2012 with 0 comments

I've been writing diligently to prepare for the next record.  I've a record's worth of material, but I usually like to over-write, come prepared with a couple extra songs in case something just isn't working at mixing time.  With Wind Up Toy, I recorded ten and only released five.  Maybe someday I'll rework the other five, maybe not.  There's almost a flair of old-time country to a few of the new ones--a folk quality. 

A couple more placements came this week too: "Candy Heart" is in the new Adrianna Papell website promo, and an instrumental of "This is" was used in the tv show, Shameless, on Showtime and in the film trailer for Jeff, Who Lives at Home, starring Jason Segel, due in theaters March 16.
