Last night at Streetcar 209

We decided at the last minute to do that open mic last night. 3 songs, all on the 12 string ...

The Well Stone
Horizon
Spinning Skies & Mirrors

A nice, solid set.

The highlight was two young women, each doing a separate set. One was 12, one was 13, and they were amazing. Killer voices, decent guitar chops, and both just natural performers. Utterly compelling. Then one of their Dads came on and tossed out some acoustic punk. One of the highlights of my year. We need to go back more often.

Wow that was fun. 800ish miles on the car. 4 sets of music. Lots of fun conversation. The funniest moment of the weekend for me ... I was starting a song and Phil Parker, who was in the front row, leans forward and, with much amusement and amazement in his voice says "you're in standard tuning!"

Shows !!!

Get ready for the Cheshire Moon "We've been pounded by all kinds of extra bills" midwestern tour!

And, we booked all these before all this happened ... clever that.

We have gotten pounded with hospital and automotive bills the last month. If you have wanted to see us play, now is the time! We have lots of music for sale, including two new CDs. You can put money in our jar (virtual in the case of the Concert Window show). You can see us in our living room (live or virtual), in a church and in someone else's living room (both of those live). Oh, and the Chicago show ... we're bringing Susan! That doesn't happen every often.

And if you want CDs, they are available on our website, cheshiremoon.net. If you want downloads, they are available at cheshiremoon.bandcamp.com.

A bit of history

6 years ago yesterday Cheshire Moon played for the first time in front of people, just a couple weeks ahead of our first full length show at Duckon. We played three songs at an open mike that is now long gone.

If I Were The Rain, Out Of The Light and Child Of Stars.

We haven't done any of those songs in ages.We may have to pull a couple of them out for the set with Susan in Chicago!

Off the rack

We bought a new CD display rack. It holds a lot. Two faces of each of the full length CDs, one facing of each of the EPs. And I'm looking at this and thinking ... we've done a lot of music in the last 6 years.

And now we are writing a ridiculous amount of new music. 19 songs this year on our Patreon page. We're several songs into the next CD, Callenwood is coming along nicely. There are songs from this project that will probably never show up anywhere else, they don't fit Cheshire Moon. But we are going to come up with a good album worth of stuff on just random songs alone as well as all the Callenwood songs.

Two brand new albums, two more well on their way. A good amount of live shows coming up. At least one more serious road trip this year. The new songs are coming to life live.

This is the most exciting time of my creative life. I blame Lizzie!

We made it!

In honor of meeting our kickstarter goal, we are releasing two rough mixes into the wild! One song, two versions: one acoustic, and one with the full band. These are rough mixes and are not yet complete, but as a thank you for helping us make this thing, a present for you!

http://www.cheshiremoonband.com/nest/Horizon-full.mp3
http://www.cheshiremoonband.com/nest/Horizon-acoustic.mp3

There is still time to get in on the Kickstarter. We want to record a few extra things, and a bit of extra cash would certainly help that.

And Patreon!

Lizzie describes this one as ...

Gargoyles of New Orleans
This is what happens when no sleep + hoodoo lore + song prompt get together in Lizzie's head and have mugwart tea... I give you.... Gargoyles of New Orleans. Johnny Cash as a pagan minstrel. Enjoy!

A dollar a week gets you a brand new song every week on Patreon! Two dollars a week gets you that and a CD of the best songs professionally recorded at the end of the year!

A Kickstarter update!

It's going slow. We will hit the halfway point of the campaign on Monday, and haven't hit the halfway point on what we need to make yet. This makes me nervous. Of course, anyone who knows me knows that everything makes me nervous. Being nervous makes me nervous. But I digress ... I was supposed to be talking about our Kickstarter.

We are offering two different CDs, one acoustic, one full band. Downloads and/or CDs. If you get a CD, you will get to download the tracks as soon as they are done, weeks before the CDs get mailed out. We're also offering ringtones, voice mail messages (we get to be Carl Kasell!), your very own Critter verse, and even a song written especially for you!

Please help us make this CD, and please help spread the signal.

A bit more information!

As some of you know, Cheshire Moon has launched a new venture: a Patreon!

What’s going on here? Well, we are part of a project alongside a slew of other deeply talented artists. The project is this: 1 new original song every week for a year. 52 songs in 52 weeks. And we wanted the chance to share it with all of you!

There are 2 levels of participation, lots of other good things besides music coming down the path, and we will continue to add as we go along! Also, since we’re already underway, if you decide to join us you’ll get the first 4 songs of the year as a free thank you!

This will also be a chance for us to debut new music as it is written for other projects. And some of these songs will never be heard anywhere else! Dragon eggs to fireflies to a girl named Tempest, there’s a lot in store!
