Stephanie Rearick Jr. album and tour coming 2013


Hello!

Sorry it's been so long, I actually forgot I could blog on here. Have been blogging more about work at http://blog.timeftw.org - check it out if you'd like to read more about the work I do on helping create a cooperative economy that works for us rather than the other way around.

And now that work is easing up a bit I can turn my attention to music!

In January I'll record a full-length Stephanie Rearick Jr. album (or whatever the kids are calling it these days). Working title... [read more]

Maestro Subgum and the Whole - update and a song


Lots happening..

We have acquired a bunch of previously believed to be lost master tapes of the first albums. These were cassette-only releases and we had been working on cleaning up the best versions we had which were from used cassettes. We now have the potential (assuming the tape is still viable) to work from original masters. We'll know soon.

Also, lots of photos, posters, lyric sheets, album art, news clips, etc has been flowing our way. We are slowly making sense of what we have and are scanning, scanning, scanning...... [read more]

The trainings were in a great church in Detroit, the Lighthouse Community Church on Wyoming St., thanks to Joan and her son the pastor.

First day we focused on identifying and engaging stakeholders – the organizations, groups and individuals who can help each timebank meet its goals.

We went through how to identify... [read more]

October 20 was the Contact conference at a very cool building in the lower east side, called Angel Oresanz. Lent itself to the kind of creativity the organizers... [read more]
