Very rich sound, man :] you have literally no ceiling, my friend. this album will take you wherever you are willing to take it. i believe in you. now you have to do everything you can to promote this. one suggestion is to go to your local radio stations in Bangor -- I know that I've mentioned this one before, but 'it bears repeating'. College stations, especially. There must be 6 in Bangor alone. Talk to Stephen King if you have to, but you have to get this stuff out there even more :] Shoham

Let me tell you, it's very, very encouraging to have you respond so positively to the new stuff. I've had my head around these songs for nearly a year and a half at this point, and it's hard to get a perspective on it all. I am absolutely going to do everything in my power to promote this album. I think it could go places. I'm really glad you agree!

As your financial adviser* [*-this is a joke] I STRONGLY recommend focusing on your local market in Bangor. Meet face to face with ALL of the people who work and volunteer at every local college radio station in the area. They will want to promote you. And bring physical copies of your album with you, with or without cover art. Make sure to attach your contact info, and talk, in person to as many people as you can when you are at the station. Bring snacks, too. Go, go,go... -sh0

You give good advice! And if I'm smart, I'll follow it (I plan on being smart). I need to establish a "home base" of support that I can draw from to move to even better things. I'll have professionally printed copies (short run) of the album by next month, and then I will hit the ground running. Also, I saw that you grabbed a copy of the album. Thank you, man. You rock.

"I need to establish a "home base" of support that I can draw from to move to even better things." I think that your job (in part) is bringing the world to Bangor, it is more economical in a sense.............. Let the world support you, and where you are form, and not the other way around. The world can afford it! Bangor needs you, and you are from Bangor. There's nothing better than that ;]

You know, that's a good way of looking at it. And the internet makes that easier. A LOT easier.

"It is not necessary that you leave the house. Remain at your table and listen. Do not even listen, only wait. Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone. The world will present itself to you for its unmasking, it can do no other, in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet." Franz Kafka -- OK, it is extreme, you SHOULD leave the house, LOL! But the point is just that you are making it happen, now get that next lap under your belt, it is an easier lap than the (ultr)marathon that you just ran!
