A few months ago I tweeted that I needed a VCR ASAP – and fans delivered. (Thank you, Marissa!) The result was an archeological dig through past performances and personal VHS tapes from a pre-digital era to revisit the good old daze of recording my first album, Waiting For My Rocket To Come, 15 years ago, touring in a van, meeting lifelong fans, and becoming who I am.
Today I’m excited to share that Waiting For My Rocket To Come is out now on vinyl! With never before seen pics by Alison Dyer, expanded art by the great Robert Fisher, and new liner notes written by yours truly. Buy it at your preferred retailer here.
