And now you may ask? Well, we're finally ready to talk... This Wednesday, we go back into the studio with two people we are very proud to welcome into the New Sweden family - Producer Ritchie Rubini, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who’s toured both nationally and internationally while drumming with The Caulfields, and Grammy Award-winning Sound Engineer Nick DiDia who has worked on some of the best albums over the past decade including those of Bruce Springsteen, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, Incubus and Martin Sexton - to name a few.
How'd we get this lucky? We don't know, but regardless, we couldn't be happier and we absolutely cannot wait to finally share this with you at our official Record Release Party - July 29th at World Cafe Live at The Queen (Downstairs). We're thrilled to bring you yet another fantastic line-up including The Spinning Leaves and Johnny Miles, both based out of Philadelphia. I know we always say this, but it's going to be one hell of a show, SO DON'T MISS IT!
On a final note, with so much to tackle, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Nothing we've accomplished over the last year and a half would have been possible without you, we sincerely hope you know that, and our newly launched Kickstarter campaign is certainly no exception...
If you haven't heard of Kickstarter yet, it's a fantastic website that helps creative projects get up and running by spreading the cost among a large group of individuals. In other words, awesome people donate money in support of awesome projects and in return get awesome rewards! The "down-side," if there is one? It's all or nothing funding. So not only are we asking you to give what you can, but we're asking you to help us SPREAD THE WORD. Please, please, please help us make this long-awaited album a reality!
