Fable is out today. Buy it, stream it, share it!
I am so pleased to announce that Fable, my ninth album, will be released on May 6, 2016.
Fable is a collection of eight songs that were written in 2013 and 2014. They formed fully during a period of rootlessness and floated with me across the time zones of the United States. It is not a road record, though it is owed to the road.
When countless attempts at home recording failed to achieve the desired result, I sought out the expertise of Dave Snyder of Guilford Sound, and one day in January 2016, with Michael Roberts (electric guitar), Jeff Murphy (bass), and Jesse Fox (drums), the record was made. Fable was mixed by Dave Snyder and mastered by Carl Saff. The artwork features drawings by my brother, design by my father, and text by yours truly.
The release will be followed immediately by an album release tour, to be announced soon.
Tour starts October 2nd.
Lots of house shows. Please email me for details: firstname.lastname@example.org

See you there!
In winter 2015 I spent a month in Colorado, playing nights at a bar in a big quasi country band. In the mornings I quietly worked on new songs, borrowed my friend Jackson's nylon guitar and recorded some of them. Here are three, presented as works in progress. Consider it a lo-fi preview of things to come.
If you'd like to download it for a few dollars, your offering will help offset expenses associated with the creation of my next proper full-length album. Your support is so appreciated. - Sam
