It's been some months since I've checked in - I hope this finds you all well.
I'm packing my bags - this Thursday I fly to Dusseldorf to kick off my German/Dutch Fall Tour. I'll be debuting new songs from my forthcoming album, A Life Like Ours and playing some new covers I've worked up just for you! I'm excited to return to Germany and to get back to Holland for the first time in 2 years. Check out shanealexandermusic.com for show and ticket info!
Aside from producing a single for Shelby Figueroa, I've been working at Buddhaland much of the summer and fall on the new record - I expect it'll be out in April of 2019, with the first single "River Bed" out this month.
As most of you know, making professional records (even in my own studio) still costs an arm and a leg - musicians, mixing, mastering etc still cost the same, but many people simply stream music now, so there's less of a recording budget for artists to work with. For any of you generous souls that want to contribute to the new record, you can simply text the word SHANE to 44321 and choose the amount - it's that easy. Contributions of $20 or more will receive CDs mailed to them first and $35 or more gets you a signed LP! Thanks to everyone who has already signed up - in doing so, you're helping with the very pricey manufacturing of CDs and vinyl as well as promotion. THANK YOU in advance!
Alright, I've gotta go put new strings on my guitar.
All my love and see you soon,
