Pre-Release Unleashed! Stream the Whole Thing! Plus 11 Ways to Support This Project...
Hello my friends! This morning I excitedly pressed a little button that unleashed the digital pre-release of Love Songs For Everyone But Especially Uke. Everyone who pre-ordered the album has been sent an email with the full album download. Whooooo! It's out there now! Eeeeee...
Thank you so, so, so much to everyone who has supported me with this project. To me, support comes in gobs of forms. Here are 11 things you can do to support this album release:
1. Buying the album.
7. Playing the songs on podcasts and radio shows.
8. Licensing tracks for your projects (videos, ads, movies, web films, etc.).
9. Joining my TuneTrack Green Room.
10. Joining the email list (No more than 2 updates per month and I'd never, ever sell your address. Ever.)
11. Sending a kind message of encouragement to me! kara[at]mindmapthat[dot]com
All of these things make a huge difference. They help spread my music like a little seed... And you know what? I'm finally at a pivotal point where my music is reaching more and more ears. My ultimate dream is to make a living through music. I've been working towards this goal seriously for over five years. I've had the incredible fortune of my partner, Katie, supporting me through this entire time (emotionally, financially, and so much more). And I just want to say 'thank you.' Thank you to Katie. Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way. I'm not at the point where I can quit my part-time day job yet, but things are looking up. Everything you can do to keep this momentum going is enormously helpful. Thank you.
Now that the pre-release is unleashed, EVERYONE can stream the album for free. If you like it, please buy it. If you don't like it quite that much, but find it share-worthy, please share it. I hope I get the opportunity to craft you a Valentine with my own two uke-playin' hands! They're quite fun to make! :D
Take care and cause ruckus,
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...
