Hi Everyone-Happy 2012! First off, I’d like to extend a belated thank you to all of you who made the 2nd annual “Home for the Holidays” a smashing success. I already have so many new ideas for next year’s show.
Next week I’ll be sending you all a general outline on what to expect from me for the rest of this year… and, believe me, it’s going to be a big one. Right now, though, I need to tell you about my most prized project for this year (and many years to come)- my Songbook project with Nick Rieser.
Throughout 2012 and 2013, I’ll be collaborating with sound technician Steve Capp of Capp Audio Productions and pianist Nick Rieser to highlight some of the most influencial American composers’ greatest works. We’ll be releasing 10 albums in 2012 covering composers like Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, and many more! Three of the albums have already been completed, and I can honestly say I have never been more proud of my work. I’ve posted 2 preview songs on my myspace page at www.myspace.com/maxwellman if you’d like to check them out!
In order to receive these 10 albums PLUS 50% off tickets to my concert with the Belin Quartet in July and the 3rd Annual “Home for the Holidays” in December, you must be a subscriber.
Yes, this is the hook. However, I think it’s a pretty solid deal if you like good music (both live and recorded). Basically, for less than $10 per month you get 10 exclusive albums and cheap tickets to great concerts. Plus, you make it possible for me to SUSTAINABLY produce these all-local productions in the wonderful city of Des Moines, Iowa. The way I see it, it’s a win-win situation.
To become a subscriber, simply email me back with your intention to commit $99 to this groundbreaking project. I’ll follow up with you (and get you the delivery schedule along with other details) and get you your first album by the week of Valentine’s Day!
To get the order in time, you MUST email me by Sunday, January 22nd. To be clear, this is your only chance to hear these new albums… only subscribers will be sent these 10 CDs in completion.
As always, thank you all so much for your support. I couldn’t do any of this without you, and I’m doing everything I can to get you great music in return. Let’s do this!
