A New Release From The Prestons.

On November 24th, The Prestons launched their latest collection of songs as a free download on their Bandcamp page. Beautiful Rain is a six-song record, featuring three each from Bill and Rick (or Liam and Chard, if you will). Plans are afoot to release a physical CD sometime next year, very likely come Spring when the duo starts playing shows again.


Okay, so much for the third-person press release style stuff. You'll note that I've made some changes over there in the right-hand column. In addition to the links to my solo albums, there are now links to all three albums by The Prestons. I've listed everything in reverse chronological order, with the latest offering on top. Much in the way the blog posts themselves are arranged, come to think of it.

Just click on any of the album covers to pop over and download whatever suits your pleasure. With my solo material, it's "name your price," meaning there's the option to slip a little something my way, but everything by The Prestons is just plain free. Bill and I never connected the page with any payments account, so we decided to continue along that same path with Beautiful Rain. Once the CD version is pressed, you can toss some cash in the tip jar at a gig and take one home.

In the meantime, stay warm through the next few months, and enjoy the Winter holidays. We'll see you in the Spring.

The Advocate Session.

The Valley Advocate, a widely-read local weekly, has been taping a series of in-office music videos, much in the same vein as NPR's Tiny Desk concerts. Expertly filmed by staff from Northampton Community Television, and with audio captured by Signature Sounds, the videos are all top-shelf productions of intimate performances in a very cool setting.

I recently taped an Advocate Session, and it is now online. CLICK HERE. There's an interview clip, and another of my five-song set.
