Dear Popp Over America fans and supporters:
I realize it has been a long time since my last update. Many of you think I may have given up, but NOOOOO! I’m still here! My life took a few turns and twists. I’ve had to move several times do to noise and dangerous conditions. I am now living with Jenny out in the Kensington section of Brooklyn. I also continue to battle depression that rears it’s ugly head at the least convenient times. This has been an ongoing fight, but I am feeling productive and positive as of late.
I am still editing the pilot episode and things are going great. I have so much footage that I am having a tough time finding what to cut. I can’t have a four-hour pilot episode!
I have been recording a new LOST AXIS album with Shaugn O’Donnell, and I am currently trying to talk him into buying a motorcycle and joining me on the 48-state tour. Work at the Sonic Arts Center at CCNY keeps me going too, but I start my one-year sabbatical on August 1st. Things will calm down at the job by they end of the semester, and I am aiming for July 1 to release the pilot episode. Stay tuned!
I plan on leaving for the 48-state tour on March 1, 2017. If you have a place for me to stay or know a club where I can play, please let me know!
Fire-Eye has given a generous rebate to Popp Over America on their Red-Eye Instrument Preamplifier. This pre sounds amazing and incorporates adjustable treble and boost controls. The Red-Eye is well known as the de facto standard for passive pickups in acoustic instruments. Please check out their products and tell them Popp Over America sent you.
