So you probably know that The Lost Fairy, A Fairypunktale is out now
Because response has been through the freaking roof. So let me begin by thanking you all. Thank you. It’s amazing.
I also need to specifically thank my patrons on Patreon, without whom this album would not have been released until about 2 months later. The Patrons at Patreon are exceptional and vital to funding the making of these albums. It really is life changing and i cannot express my gratitude in strong enough language. They also ensure that in planning projects i can go ahead and go for more interesting options that earlier simpy wouldnt have done because for instance, traveling to the UK to record a single vocalist for a song would just be out of the question. I wish i could name and then kill a character out of each and every one of them.
But also, everyone who has been purchasing the album, i love you just as much. Thank you. This is all very wonderful and ensures that years after i have ceased to make anything even remotely listenable and become a sad, pale shade of my former self, each album sucking worse than the last and just making you sad at how far i’ve fallen, i will STILL KEEP making albums, forever making albums despite your pleas to stop, oh god stop, someone make him stop. But i wont. Because of you. So thank you. I love you.
The next absolutey definite projects coming up are a New Alion Noir album. Deep, moody, dark jazz oriented, and featuring Katy with some special cameos, it will be a darker, more intimate album.
Matthew Broyles and i will also being work on ah Ah Pook The Destroyer project (we did The Silver Key on my Bandcamp feed).
After this, which will probably come out say, March 2020, i am at the moment very, very very seriously considering making a musical opera about The Donner Party. Not a light hearted funny piece, a serious freaking opera that tells the horrifying Donnor Party story. I’m REALLY seriously considering it. Actually, at the moment, the biggest stumbling block is the fact that at one point the group splits into two, the group who stays at the lake and the smaller “rescue mission” group who attempts to make it past the mountains to help (who is now known as The Forlorn Hope). I cant figure out how to split the narrative. Maybe an act dedicated to The Forlorn Hope before the last act featuring the group camped at the lake?
It’s tricky. I dont even know if i should… but… my brain keeps picking at it…
So, thank you, thank you all seriously a freaking lot. I cant believe it i made it to a point where i have sales and patreons and people supporting my work… I WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN. I WILL NOT REST UNTIL I HAVE PERSONALLY HURT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. Next up: New Albion Noir, Ah Pook, and possibly, just possibly , The Donner Party.
