I will finish the rest of the album soon. We are ready to mix, but Steve Christensen, our mix engineer isn’t ready for us until mid July. He has become quite the hot commodity lately. I’m having a baby in August, so there’s no reason to hurry. “Let go and let God” is pretty much my M.O. these days. I plan to play a few more shows around Austin over the next month or so and then check out for a little while. Then I must, must, must return with a vengeance, especially so that I can redeem all of the good will that has spent on my behalf getting this album made. DAN WORKMAN = M.V.P.
Please buy the EP on iTunes! You could totally help me to get more attention for this project , like perhaps a good indie label to release the album, film/TV placement, radio play, etc. Mama needs your help.
Tonight I did an interview with Radio Mike. I think it was a great conversation. I enjoyed myself and I’ll be proud to let you know when it’s posted.
I’m loving the Spring that we are having in Austin, though today’s glimpse of the mid 90s makes me feel a bit of dread to spend the next 3 months or so completing this pregnancy. The AC went out today on my 1981 diesel Mercedes station wagon, which is becoming more and more of a labor of love. I bought it last summer so that I could run it on biodiesel. Who knew that diesel would increase by 40% and some new tax would make biodiesel even more expensive than regular diesel. Ouch! I want to convert it to run on straight veggie oil, but the whole kit takes up room that we need for music gear. The old shocks and the relentless speed bumps in my neighborhood give a whole new meaning to “bouncing baby” (make that babies).
I’m so happy for Hayes Carll and all of his recent success. Check him out, if you are not familiar with him. He had a fantastic, thorough review on Fresh Air recently, which for me is the ultimate measure of having arrived. I listen to her show every day.
If you’re in Austin, please come to Momo’s this Wednesday.
