I would also like to let you know about a local author that could use your support. Barry Jandebeur has recently published a novel available in paperback. Here is a description of the book taken from his webpage.
-“THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE”, written in a voice so compelling that you feel you are there, follows two men, brought together by coincidence, as they confront intellectual, emotional and physical challenges, and find themselves woven into the fabric and spirit of human compassion.
So if you are going to take a chance with a new book give this one a go. I will be reading mine this week as I’m off to Rangeley, Maine for vacation where I will have the time to stop and smell the roses. http://barrysjandebeur.com/
There has been a lot going on over here at Humble Sky Studios along with my wife and I expecting our baby to arrive around August 10th! I can’t wait to meet her. We decided to name her Loretta Elsie Chase in honor of my Grandmother and my wife’s Great Grandmother.
My band Syndicate19 released it’s first official album with a show at The Big Easy in Portland on March 24th and it is now available on Itunes, Amazon, Google and Spotify. Just give a search in whatever music service you use it is probably there or go here www.syndicate19.com. The show was a great success and since it’s release, songs from Syndicate19’s “Call You Out” has been played on quite a few local radio stations in Maine.
I have decided to hold off on my release of “This Is Real Live at Post Road Tavern” till July 23rd. So get ready it’s coming. The first half is my latest album “What Is Real” played live in order start to finish and in the second half are songs not yet released in the studio. This album totals almost 30 songs for your listening pleasure. This digital download will also feature artwork from local artist Michael Dolan. Look for it July 23rd!!!
