It’s release day!
There is a lot going on around this project, so I wanted to take a few minutes to explain everything to you piece by piece, just incase I’ve failed to already do so (which is highly likely, I might add).
The Album: It’s my fifth, and I think it’s my best so far. Physical copies are available through my online store (where you have the option to bundle it with physical and digital copies of both the book and the audiobook), and also through Lone Star Music. Oh, and when you buy the physical copy of the record at my store you can also add the mp3′s for free.
The Novel: It’s my first, and it was a lot of fun to write. I think it does a good job giving the reader a glimpse into what life is like as a working musician, as well as a little insight into where and how it is, exactly, that songs are born. It’s available physically at the same places listed above, as well as digitally for your iPad, kindle, and other fancy space-aged devices through my store. It’s also digitally available through iTunes, amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
The Audiobook: This is the complete package. I have a feeling that this thing will sell the least number of units out of everything available, but I also think it’s the most interesting and important. I do a ton of traveling, obviously, and so as a veracious reader I tend to kill my time on the highways of America by listening to audiobooks. I love a good audiobook like I love few things in this world. The Audiobook for Fresh Water In The Salton Sea is important to me because it combines these two projects into one complete narrative. What will you be getting with the audiobook? Well, I narrate the novel, which contains the lyrics to all ten songs from the album, and rather than just recite the lyrics I’ve chosen to actually insert the songs from the record into the narration… so you get to hear the story being told, as well as how they play into the songs that are sung. It really does bring the whole thing together. This might not be for everyone, but I’m almost more proud of the audiobook than I am anything else. It’s available through my store, as well as iTunes, amazon, et cetera.
So there you have it: Fresh Water In The Salton Sea. It’s been almost a year in the making, and I’m glad it’s finally here. I hope you enjoy experiencing it as much as I enjoyed making it. Keep your eyes peeled to my concert calendar as I’ll be pounding the pavement all over the country and beyond in support of it. Love it? Hate it? Feel inclined to let me know? As always, I’m only a few digital inches away via twitter (@dk_music) and email (info (at) drewkennedymusic (dot) com). Thanks again– without you, there’d be no musical me.
