It has been over a year since Off the Spring was released. I'd like to thank everybody for their support over the past 12 months. Not only for supporting me and my efforts at making it as a musician in these turbulent times, but also the other musicians on this album who made it all possible. I'll be sure to continue to hire other musicians and keep the dream of music alive in those that work hard!
Also, Pandora has rejected without explanation Off the Spring. They will reconsider if there's enough requests for it. So, contact Pandora and ask them if they have Off the Spring in their database, and if they don't, why not! Grassroots win the world!
The MP3 download for Off the Spring is on sale for the month of April for $9.99. Head right over to that lovely BUY button on the left and start purchasing!
Forgot to mention this earlier, but Off the Spring is now available as an MP3 album download from CD Baby. Same price of $12.50. It will also be available at all the other main digital carriers as well (iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, etc.) though I make more money through CD Baby and we want to support them anyway!
So click on that Buy button to the left, and choose physical CD or MP3 album (disclaimer: the CD does sound better. I am offering the MP3 version so those that want Off the Spring without wanting a CD can get it). Support high quality, independent music!
Not only is it my brother's birthday, but I have finally cast away the temporary website I had up and now have a fancy CSS site for everyone to enjoy!
Make sure to check out the personnel page on the navigation bar to the left. It isn't complete yet, I still have to hear back from several individuals, but things are already looking up as far as the future of this CD is concerned. I've been noticing silly spelling mistakes strewn throughout the website, so I'll be slowly fixing those up as well.
Little bit of good news; I sent some copies of Off the Spring to a consignment shop in the Seattle area, called Tyrannosaurus Records, back in November. I figured I had nothing to lose, I wasn't using up too much shelf space. Lo and behold, I got my first check in the mail a couple of days ago. So if you ever come to this website, you have my personal thanks! And if you're in the Seattle area, may want to drive over to Renton and buy a few more copies yourself!
Finally, CD Baby is carrying Off the Spring. $12.50 + shipping. Link is under buy!
I have just received word that it may be another week or two until Off the Spring becomes available on CD Baby. They are backed up currently from the relaunch of their website.
In the meantime, I will be taking orders personally, as CD sales are still slow enough where I can keep up with the demand. The price is $12 (including shipping) for anywhere in the lower 48 United States. The BUY button is now activated to send me an e-mail. Send me your name and address. If you have Pay Pal, send $12 to my account at firstname.lastname@example.org (this is a different e-mail from my business address). If you do not have Pay Pal, I will e-mail you a money request for $12. All shipments will be 1st class mail and usually take 3 business days.
Off the Spring is now officially for sale! Although it will take several days to get online at CD Baby, it is for sale through personal channels. If anybody is interested to get a copy right away, send me an e-mail. Otherwise, it'll probably be Monday or Tuesday when that lovely 'BUY' link becomes available. The price at CD Baby will be $12.50, through personal sale $10.
The CD is nearly completed. Disc Makers sent me an estimated completion date of August 11. They are currently done printing the artwork for the jewel cases, but have yet to make the CD's and assemble the Jewel Cases. So it looks like they're right on schedule.
