Photos from my weekend in Germany

I try not to cross post too much between Wire to the Ear and my record label’s site Things to Come Records. However, when I leave for a few days to perform it’s good to let you guys know why the posts were light. In any case, the photos above are from my live show in Stuttgart at the Lehmann club. I played a bunch of new songs live for the first time. I’m going to make a deadline for my album this week. I think sometime late September. I’m seriously considering releasing it all myself with Tunecore, Beatport and Amazon CreateSpace for CDs. It’s not really about money; I have a well paying day job for that now but I have noticed that the stuff I released myself made me 10x what I made when I signed my music to other labels. So the lessons for today: Deadlines have to be and doing it yourself is the way to make cash in music in 2010.
