Today I’m releasing a brand new compilation called Blue Wave! Nearly 80 mins of music, 33 tracks total - 27 of which have never been heard before. Many of the tracks are in raw demo form, so obviously some of what you’ll hear is very lo-fi, intimate, & personal - kind of a “fly on the wall” listening experience. Some of these tracks almost ended up on recent albums. A few of the strongest songs, such as Say You’ll Be & I Crossed A Great Divide, never felt right as studio recordings…for some inexplicable reason, all the magic they had in their original demo form could never be recreated. It was their destiny to stand apart. Songs are like that sometimes.
This compilation is my way of raising money for important candidates & social causes during the remainder of the midterm election season. Starting today, Blue Wave is available to download exclusively on Bandcamp - along w/ my album Coyote Hours - for only 6 dollars & 11 cents each (for the 6th of November - election day).
If you download either album at the mimimum amount of $6.11, 100% of the proceeds will be donated evenly to nine female Democratic candidates running this fall - @staceyabrams
(running for GA Governor), @shariceforcongress
(KS House), @katiehillforcongress
(CA House), @ginaortizjonestx
(TX House), @rosenfornevada
(NV Senate), @kyrstensinema
(AZ Senate), @laurenaunderwood
(IL House), @lupefortexas
(TX Governor), & @gewhitmer
(MI Governor). Donations will also be sent to @plannedparenthood @raicestexas
These candidates are running groundbreaking campaigns & their victories would not only help the Dems regain control at federal & state levels, but also help to smash barriers for future female, POC, & LGBTQ+ candidates in America. Many of them are running in very close races, so they really need our support.
Again, ALL the proceeds for each $6.11 download will go to these candidates & causes. If you’re feeling extra generous, you have the option to write in a price greater than $6.11 & I’ll keep the extra $$. I hope you’ll join me in supporting these amazing women & groups during this vitally important election season. Bandcamp link in bio. BLUE WAVE COMING, Y’ALL!!! 🌊🌊🌊
