Pre-Release of Kara Square's 'Love Songs For Everyone But Especially Uke' Album
The digital pre-release of Love Songs For Everyone But Especially Uke is now ready for Pre-Orders. Ha! Pre-Order the Pre-Release! (Okay, so that humored me anyway...) If you Pre-Order now, you can immediately download the first 4 tracks. On the pre-release date, Jaunuary 24th, you'll get a download code for the full album emailed to you. But that's not all... this is a SPECIAL release, so there are options, baby!
To introduce the songs in a fun, whimsical way, I am personally crafting homemade Valentines to accompany the digital pre-release. Each Valentine includes a button (designed by TheDICE) that declares “I Love Uke” and a loving lyric from the album songs handwritten on the front. A download code for the full album is on the back. There is also the option to buy Valentine multi-packs to share with friends and loved ones.
The digital pre-release will be available on January 24, 2013. The full, worldwide album release with CDS and a ukulele song book will take place on March 28, 2013. You can pre-order the CD/song book now and you'll have it in your hands before the official release date.
Dude, I'm so jazzed about this release. It is my first completely solo effort. On the album, you'll hear me play ukulele, melodica, glockenspiel, guitar, banjo, shaker, tambourine, midi keyboard (bass/drums/synth). And, of course, the album is dedicated to my love-song muse, Katie Miller. I adore her, like, crazy. We've been together 12 years! And you know what? Our love only grows deeper. Writing these songs was a blast. And as much as they are very much about Katie and our love, I also believe them to be highly universal. Love is love is love is love, damn it. And it's beautiful.
I really, really, really hope you enjoy this album! Maybe you'll even...

Halloween Podcast, Remix, and Video!
It's certainly no secret that I love, love, LOVE Halloween... So I was extremely jazzed to find out that Finneaus and Jaw Knee of Radio Orphans Podcast included "DJ Death" in episode #383. It's a fantastic show that features original independent music from all around the world. They are also an experimental rock band that goes by the same name- Radio Orphans. Their Radio Orphans music videos are especially interesting and cool. Great stuff! Thank you, Radio Orphans!
Meanwhile, *SonicSpiral*Selections* created a really fun remix of "DJ Death" with the concept of sounding like a DJ...
And finally, my friend Paul Bagnulo and his daughter made this incredible mask and showed it off in the cool video below. He asked if he could use a snippet of "The Most Generic Thing," and I was thrilled to share.
