C. Daniel Boling's new CD "These Houses" is Now Available!!
My newest CD "These Houses" is now available and we're very excited! I'm mighty proud of this album and think you'll enjoy the songs very much.
If you can come to a show (all my shows are updated at www.danielboling.com under "Tour Dates") that is the very best time to pick up a copy, save postage, and get it signed so it'll play in stereo, as Ellen likes to joke. But if that's not in the cards you can buy them right now through my website, or you can phone me or email me and send a check. Either way works fine, but if you're buying more than one item it's best to get hold of me directly so I can save you some of the automatic postage that the website applies to every item. It's a mighty big investment to record, manufacture and distribute an album, and I'm very grateful for your support.
"These Houses" was Produced by Jono Manson at The Kitchen Sink Studio in Santa Fe, NM. It features ten new songs of mine, one new one I co-wrote with Andi Renfree, and two wonderful songs written years ago by my friend and mentor, the late GREAT ballad writer Tim Henderson. We've kept the production sparse so the songs aren't covered up, but there are some nice sonic treats in there too with cameo appearances by Bill Hearne, Jaime Michaels, David Berkeley, Jono Manson, Meredith Wilder, banjo great Wayne Shrubsall, and a few other fine folks too. Heck, Ellen even gets in on the act singing backup on one song!
We're off tomorrow for a string of shows in PA, NJ, VA, OH, KY & GA and then hurry back home just in time for a big CD Release Show in Albuquerque Saturday, May 7th (details on the website). Then we're off right away again for shows all over Texas and some in Kansas too. But there are Post Offices everywhere, so holler when you're ready and we'll slip a copy of the new CD in a mailer and get it to you right away!
Spring has sprung in Albuquerque and the wind and pollen and dust are all alive and well...aarrgggg. We're heading east in the morning hoping to outrun the wind! I hope all is well where you are and that our paths will cross again soon.
As always, I'd be grateful if you would encourage any of your friends and family scattered across the U.S. and Europe to come to my shows when I'm playing near them. My tour dates are always updated at www.DanielBoling.com and there are lots of short live performance videos on my YouTube channel you can enjoy anytime -- please tune in!
