Announcing: "Breadcrumbs"

Posted on Mon, Oct 5, 2009

I'm extremely happy to announce that my 8th CD, "Breadcrumbs" is now available for free download. It's been a year and a half in the making, which is an epic amount of time for me. I'm insanely happy with how it turned out, and I hope you'll enjoy it, too. :)

This CD was done a little differently than the ones before it. I used to go on songwriting binges, writing and recording songs in rapid fire spurts, then spending months touching them up for eventual release. I made a conscious decision this time around to focus on one song at a time, taking around a month to polish it and get it right. One of the odd side effects of this is that I didn't end up with any songs for the reject bin this time around. (Or, more to the point, things got dumped before the demos ended up in your ears)

You'll recognize the eight songs that were released as demos, and there are three more songs that haven't yet been heard. By a complete fluke, the final song order very closely reflects the order these were written in, with the three new songs right at the end. There are only 11 songs, but it's actually the longest CD I've released since "Crawford Street".

A number of the songs had invasive surgery since their demo versions. "Swansong" has a new first verse and chorus arrangement. "Private Hurricane" has new instrumentation, led by a Wurly now. "Grey Snow" slimmed down and went on a diet.

As always, without touring or major label support, I rely on you to get the word out! Please please please, if you enjoy what you hear, I'd love it if you'd take the time to send a copy to some of your friends, or to share it your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, shaved into the back of your head, anything. Thanks a million. :)

Nice album! I already loved the demos but a new album is always better! Keep up the good work.

I just discovered you released a new album today, although I was only searching for ogg-Versions of your earlier Albums (you're the most productive CC-musician I know ;)

Now I'm listening and I can say: It sounds great! Already told two friends of mine.

Keep at it!

Hi Josh!

This is the best news of the day! It's going straight to my SD card so that I can listen to it ASAP without wasting a second!
Don't worry, the word's out, all my friends know about you ~

Have a nice day ~

Hello josh,
I first found out about your music when you released your previous album 'The Simple Life'. I loved that album and immediately downloaded the other ones as well!
I just received a message from you releasing Breadcrumbs, and started downloading right away.

Since I'm now addicted to your album, I wanted to be able to enjoy it even more, and support you to keep on making this! But since I live on the other side of the world, sending a CD would take too long(impatient!). Therefore I bought the FLAC version :D

Also funny (sad actually...) thing, here in the Netherlands BUMA (the Dutch copyright group)just announced they are going to force us to pay around $180 per 6 audio/video fragments posted on a website per year (even embedded from youtube!). While you actually encourage people to do so! If this law passes (probably end of this year), I think you can expect a LOT more visitors, heh!

I love your music, and that do do this for free, and hope you will continue this work for a long time!
