So am I crazy? Maybe. But suddenly I’m writing songs again. I’m excited about them. People are asking for them. But why two? Well, read on...
1) The “main” CD: Creatures contains songs about human creatures, animal creatures, the environment, and all their interrelationships. (Oh, and even one about a heavenly creature too!) At least two will be in French, and genius musician David Woodhead, who produced Pegasus, is producing again.
2) The “horse” CD: Hoof Beats, because there’s almost nothing out there like it. All songs at least 50% about a real or legendary horse – none where the horse is merely a metaphor or a passing mention. Contains songs from previous CDs, plus new ones. An extension of my EP Two Old White Horses.
And though all songs will be available online for download, many of you still want a physical package with cool artwork & notes & all the lyrics, which costs $$$, so…
I’m humbly requesting that you either order the CD in advance, and/or become a patron and make a donation, either in your name or in memory/honour of a friend. You can print and fill out the form below and snail mail it to me with a cheque, or fill out the form electronically and do an Internet bank transfer or use PayPal.
Keep reading for what you get in return! (Note that honorary producer credits for any specific track are first come, first served.) In keeping with the album themes, all patron categories are named for Canadian endangered or at-risk species/breeds. Click on the name for info on the animal:
