Thank you.

The Kickstarter project is fully-funded!

Thanks to those of you who pledged/pre-ordered, vinyl and CDs are a go for my new album! I can't properly express my gratitude in words - just know that I am extremely humbled and thrilled. It is truly an honor to be putting out an album that is effectively produced by the fan base. Call it whatever you want - crowdsourcing, Music 2.0, fundraising - the album is now basically yours. Gotta Groove Records is already setting up the presses for the vinyl production as you read this! (CDs, which take less time, will start being produced in a couple of weeks)

It looks like the album will come out mid-November, with a release party tentatively planned for 11/22 at the Galaxy Hut in Arlington, VA. More details soon!

Thank you again!! If you or someone you know had been planning on pre-ordering, but haven't done it yet, you can still do so before noon on Wednesday. Once the Kickstarter project ends, I won't be taking orders again until November.

PS. If you'd like to hear a version of the WTOP interview that ran last Friday and Saturday, go here and scroll to the bottom of the post.

Fantastic, I'm so happy for you!! And good for you for making noise about it. I love reading about this, it makes me vicariously happy. Rock on, Mr. Withers. :-D

Thank you so much, Hannah! Couldn't have done it without your support!

You're very welcome! I'm actually so excited about this, I'm going to post something about it and link you on my own LJ, I hope you don't mind.
Keep rockin'!!

That's great - and of course it's okay - thanks again!

I need to login to livejournal more frequently... I nearly missed this one. How are you handling shipping? At $10 for the album, I can't imagine you could ship it anywhere in the USA, let alone to those of us outside the country.
