I've recently finished up my newest album Artemisia, a project inspired by the murky history of absinthe as a brain bending, revelation inspiring substance. The album is recorded with my new band Throw A Glass, featuring Uri Caine on piano, Mark Helias on bass, Ches Smith on drums and me on cello. The record is already mixed and mastered and I recently previewed some of the material at The Stone. I truly believe that this album is one of the best of my career and I'm so excited for you all to hear it.
I want to do something special with this project so I'm trying to raise the funds to create a beautiful deluxe vinyl box set to house the recording. I've never tried crowd sourcing before, but I've set up an Indiegogo campaign and would like to ask for your help in supporting this endeavor. I've already paid for the majority of the project - the musician and studio fees, mixing and mastering costs - but need help creating the final physical product. The box set I've designed includes the album on 3 10" LPs, with artwork by Akino Kondoh, and an 8 page booklet with additional writings and artwork. The box set will be a beautiful addition to anyone's collection.
You can check out more details on the campaign at the link below - there are some really great perks that come with donating. If you don't feel as if you can donate, you can still greatly help me out by sharing this link with your friends and followers!
Thank you so much for your time and support!
