Last friday I got a great phone call. It was from a booking agent who has decided he wants to get me out on the road! So, here’s the rundown so far…
The CD master of “Practical Insanity” has been completed and made. The artwork has been finalized and is being fitted into the templates I’ve received from Groovehouse – the company I’ve decided to use for duplication thanks to a conversation with Derek Sivers of CD Baby. My main issues for choosing them: Direct to Glass master transfer, so the audio should sound better. And Eco-friendly printing. Plus it doesn’t hurt that they are priced slightly better than most competitors.
I’m excited to finally be taking the music on the road and around the U.S. and hopefully to Europe in the future! Still working out travel, band members, radio and PR, but things are coming together. YEAH!
Also last friday I played in a poker tournament. My 3rd ever and I placed 11th. Not bad for just 5-6 months of playing, especially considering the caliber of players in Los Angeles. I missed the final table by making a major mistake on my last hand. Believe me, I won’t be doing that again. My goal for the next tourney is to make the final table! If this music thing doesn’t pan out, maybe I can become a professional poker player :-).
Have a great week!
