Greetings my friends!
The Alternate mixes of Trillium will be released on June 3rd as digital downloads. I hope you like them as much as Jeff Silverman and I do. Thanks JS!!! You rock. The mixes will be available as a physical copy at the end of the summer, and so I will have links to pre-order it. The title is "The Ides of Trillium".
On a more personal note. Winter, Spring was very hard time for me. I think it is because of the things in my personal life is less then perfect. Changes mostly. Change has always been hard on me because I don't like what changes bring. I suppose the old adage "No pain, No gain" is what I really would like to avoid.
Now this doesn't mean I will allow these changes in my life to bring me down. On the contrary, it makes me fight with all that I am. Even tho I am going through all of what life seems to toss at one, I am fairly happy. Sure, I am not immune to tears and depression.. but I would much rather laugh at what is knocking at my door, ready to "do battle with me."
I have some very special friends that have risen up to the challenge of making my life lighter, and full of laughter. I thank you for that.
I thank those of you that have offered your advice and your friendship under strained circumstances. Even tho I may not take the advice, I will always listen because I know where your heart is when you talk with me. I value that.
As I say goodbye to two seasons, I look forward to Summer with a happier heart. My music is coming out of me in droves. I cannot believe the amount of sounds that my head and heart comes up with. I look forward to recording it. Once again I will be working with Will Ackerman. The forth coming album will be very different for me. I won't spoil it, I will keep you guessing. I won't be gigging much because I feel that now that I am working on new material, it will distract me from what I want to do. However, if I am asked, I will perform. I just won't be doing a monthly gig for a while. I will be recording next year.
I look forward to the zephyr the Summer brings!
More to come...
