Remember my post a couple of months ago about this amazing invitation to play a show in Segovia Spain? That an NPR producer/station had invited us to represent the US, but that I wasn’t sure how to make it work, because we had to get ourselves to Europe, me & band? Well here’s the latest.
I booked a 2-week European tour, from Spain to Germany. I started a fundraiser (Fan Raiser) on my FanPage here. We are more than 1/2 way to our fundraising goal! I sold CDs, an instrument, made lots of jewelry (most of which friends and family bought before it was posted (thank you!!). I started a house concert series (this Saturday). And we leave next week for Madrid. Eeeeee!
THANK YOU X 10,000 to all of our friends, family, and fans who have bought my music, jewelry, songs, recording time, and shows over the last 2 months! Thank you all for getting involved to get us there. It kind of boggles the mind. This is community: this is why I make music.
I have had a hard time asking for $. But I’m not asking anyone for a gift or donation. I have instead asked everyone to buy what I do best- my music. I’m offering my new CD (for $10-20), or a new song that I will write and record for you about any subject you choose, or a concert wherever you want us to play. With smaller things in between. If all of my friends and fans bought or downloaded just one CD (any of 4) this week- we could meet our goal. THANK YOU to all who have responded! We are seriously grateful.
You can listen to my CD’s on my website here. (We like it when folks buy through Bandcamp- because they pay the artists the most for their music and you can pick your file download quality.)
Download Torch and Sass (jazzy blues) here:
or Download my wild west Tex-Americana music Tortilla Western Serenade from here.
NOTE: I will ship the last of packages on Monday. So if you happen to buy anything after that- I will send your package after July 15th.
Here is the band- The Tortilla Western Trio- that I will be touring Europe with below- featuring Az Samad (guitar), Rafael Herrera (drums/percussion), JT will debut on percussion!
