We are in the home stretch in preparing the release of Cosmologies, my new limited-edition vinyl album with drummer Sam Byrd. Although I have not heard from United about a specific pressing date, I would expect to have my records in hand next week (or sometime after the July 4 holiday). So exciting! 

There is still a little bit of printing left to do on the first batch of covers, but I am loving how it is coming together. Griffin even cut some plates on Isle of Printing's nifty laser cutter to create additional imagery to layer on top of the red, which you can see above. Keep in the mind that the photograph is a detail from the center of print, where it will be folded, so not representative of what the final cover is going to look like (and there will be significant variations from print to print). In any event, it is truly going to be a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Please stay tuned!

In the meantime, you can download a FREE digital copy of Cosmologies and pre-order the vinyl over at Bandcamp. Thanks so much for your support!
