Hello & Happy August! The new record is coming along really great and I can't wait to have it finished. This is my last week recording in Venice Beach with producer Matt Appleton. He is wonderful and extremely talented. I have been positively influenced by living in Venice and have wrote a lot of new material. There is no official release date, however its looking like January. Although I am finished this week there is a lot of adding additional instruments and mixing to be done. You can expect all new songs with possibly the exception of "Empty Bottles" off Apples & Oranges. It is the most honest effort I could possibly do that best represents who I am, so I really hope when it does come out that you all enjoy it as much as I do.
I have a wonderful feature coming out in 944 today of "who's pushing the envelope in Orange County". It's an honor to be on that list and have my efforts/music recognized. You can pick up a copy in OC, Long Beach or view online at www.944.com
(see attachment). I also had a nice blurb in this month's Independent Music Plateau Magazine.
In addition to that you can hear my music playing at a variety of hotels, restaurants, stores and some recent placement on MTV "Engaged & Underaged". I have been working on booking an east coast tour for October and am looking forward to the fall. More exciting news-- I am going to be opening for Mike Herrera (MxPx!!!) at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA Sept. 3rd. Tickets go on sale soon - please go to www.allages.com
and put your email in to be notified if you want to get tickets. I am pretty sure the show will sell out. For more show info and to see my new video blogs go here: www.myspace.com/stacyclark
