Tiny Specks of Delight

Exciting news! - first of all, I am pleased to announce a new partnership with the San Francisco-based record label Kitten Charmer (Kristin Hersh, Crime, Carletta Sue Kay). Kitten Charmer is releasing my new EP, Tiny Specks of Delight. It was co-produced by Monte Vallier (Swell), and as of October 2nd, 2012, is available on every digital platform worldwide - iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Spotify, MOG, you name it, it's there!

We're celebrating with two California shows: one in San Francisco on October 14th, and one in Los Angeles on October 19th.  If you are around these parts please come and say hello! The San Francisco show will include the premiere of a new video for the title track - produced by Kitten Charmer and directed by our favorite Bay Area filmmaker, Zach Von Joo. We'll be at the Make Out Room, with the Moore Brothers and Eight Belles. The L.A. show will take place at Origami Vinyl, everybody's favorite record store on Sunset in Echo Park. And- I will have a band for the San Francisco show (with special guests!), and some accompaniment on drums for the L.A. date. Getting excited!

I have to admit I am very proud of this collection of songs and love how they came out sounding. Here's peek at the cover, and a few words about it:

"With instrumentation varying from very sparse (guitar, harp and pedal steel) to full band arrangements, the songs on Tiny Specks Of Delight encapsulate a certain idea of the West Coast sound - breezy and open -  while offering a reflection on that eternal process of falling in and out of love - each song centering around a different point along love's roller coaster of learning and liberation.  Contributions by Tom Heyman and Marc Cappelle (both long time Mark Eitzel collaborators), Russ Blackmar, Matt Montgomery, Willow Willow, Chris Molla, Christina Zirker, Amber Lamprecht and Bennett Grassano, make this a bit of a more produced collection than the last album."
