Happy 2022 fellow Jesters! And what a glorious year this can be… if each of us wants it to be. I’ve found in my life that attitude is not necessarily everything, but having a good one sure helps a lot. So starting the year with a positive mental attitude with clear optimistic goals is a good way to begin. It’s the following through consistently that can be difficult.
My optimistic goal for this year is to release a bunch of music for you all. I know, I know… I’ve been promising that for a while. But I’m pretty sure this time it’s going to happen. And soon. The music for the first album is ready. The hold up lately is getting some of the marketing stuff together. Yes, that stuff. Logos, and album cover designs and marketing plans, etc… what I call the boring stuff (though the artwork is pretty exciting). But since I’m new to this world of independent music marketing (no record company as of yet), my learning curve is long and slow.
I’m very excited about the music Larry and I and the rest of our bandmates have created. Should be a fun ride for you. Hopefully the album will give you an idea of who we are musically, and where we are headed. I don’t want to say too much as I don’t want to spoil anything. But the few people (Guinee Pigs?) I’ve tested it on have given some pretty positive reactions (unless they were just being polite).
As we move forward, I promise to be more in touch with everyone. After all, this is not just my journey, or even the band’s journey - it’s all of our journey (and no, we don’t sound like Journey). I’m looking forward to the feedback from you (please be kind and constructive) and developing a Karmic Jester community. Let’s have fun, open our minds and hearts and see where this journey takes us. You never know, together we might just change the world!
My heartfelt love to you all. Have a GREAT 2022!!!
