Eliza Gilkyson at the Hilton Garden Inn with Mike Hardwick. Again, fuzzy. But you get the idea.

4th Sep 2006 Posted in: Blog, Momhood, Road Diaries Comments Off on Not driving the family insane.

I’ve been home from Austin for a couple of days and am doing a good job of not driving my family insane (“Omigod, it was so fun! I said this, and Mark said this, and then Andy made this joke about Spinal Tap and at night I went to this awesome restaurant, and saw this band, and…”)

What I have been talking about is how profoundly grateful I am to have found my way to Congress House, and how thrilled I am with how good the album is sounding and with the stellar collection of players and special guests. And, most of all, I’m telling how much I appreciate Mark Hallman. He’s putting his heart into my project (which I think is the only way he’s capable of working, since he has so much heart). Thank you, thank you.

So…here’s a list of the awesome folks who are making special appearances on the record: Perla Batalla, Julie Christensen, Sara Hickman, Eliza Gilkyson, Victoria Williams and Andrew Hardin. I don’t know when this album will come out – it depends on how soon I can get a publisher for the book and whether I end up releasing it on my own label (Precipitous Records) or try to make a deal with a smallish indie label. So stay tuned…

What a day. This record is going to be cool…that’s all I can say. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it. Today the fates smiled and Eliza Gilkyson came by to sing a harmony. I’m pretty stoked about it. And I went to see Tom Russell tonight, who was GREAT as usual. He’s coming to the Ojai-Santa Paula area in December…stay tuned.
