Been running around doing shows and trying to work out these new songs. The new cd is just about finished. We’re still looking for some more funds to get us over the top. Thanks to everyone who has contributed and thanks to all those who have come out to my shows. Live music doesn’t exist without you!
Onward – GT
We’re getting ready to mix the new record and I must admit I’m excited by how it’s turning out. It should be ready for mastering, manufacturing and promotion by early March. To help with the cost of this project a dear friend is throwing a fundraiser in New York City on March 6th. He hopes to raise enough to pay for studio costs and promotion. I’m hoping this will help me avoid using kickstarter again as I didn’t want to knock on your doors for additional funding this time around. Of course that depends on how we do on March 6th.
That said, please come join us! The party will be Wednesday March 6 from 6pm to 9pm upstairs at The Central Bar 109 East 9th Street NYC.
I just posted my live record from 2002 “Between A House And A Hard Place/Live At Pine Hill Farm on Noisetrade. http://noisetrade.com/gregtrooper
Eric Ambel drove down to Durham, NC form NYC with all his gear and recorded my house concert at Pine Hill Farm. Accompanying me on guitars and mandolin is Michael McAdam. I can’t remember having more fun than we did that day. On the record are some oldies but goodies such as “Ireland”, “Biologically Blue”, Hannah”s Dreams, and “So French.” The download is free but of course you can leave a tip if so desired.
Many thanks and all the best,
What a crazy year it’s been. Moved twice, robbed once, and wrote a bunch of songs. Sandy came in at the end and tried her best to wipe us out but we’d have none of that. All is good and I’m looking forward to 2013. We should be finished recording the new record by the end of January. Planning a fundraiser on March 6 in NYC to pay for recording and promotion and hopefully have it out late spring/early summer.
Thanks to all of you who came out to my shows in 2012. New dates are coming in so please check the tour page for updates.
One last thing, please keep a place in your heart for all those affected by the tragedy in Newtown, CT.
Peace, love and understanding,
Far West Folk Alliance Irvine, CA Fri Oct 19 open to the public.
It’s July and it’s hot! Working some gigs this summer as well as working on new songs. I’m hoping to start recording a new record in the fall. I’ve put my last record, “Upside-Down Town”, up on Noisetrade noisetrade.com/gregtrooper . This is a sight where you give your email and zip code and then can download music for free. You can also leave the artist a tip which I intend to put towards the production of my new record. Most of you already have UDT and are on the mailing list but feel free to pass this info on to friends. As you know, independently financing a record these days is a challenging prospect to say the least.
Thanks for all your support!
See you out there,
It’s been a good spring so far. Europe was a blast and the gigs fantastic. Back stateside now for a while. New shows coming in. Please check the tour dates for updates. Big thanks to Joe D’Urso for having me on the Songwriters By The Sea show last night. Big fun had by all.
