HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Friends and fans,
The New Year has begun and with it I hope we will open a new chapter of productivity as a band. 2012, to be quite honest, was very rough and I for one teetered on the edge of complete burn out wondering why I keep this dream of music playing alive. However, our last show this year brought us warm support and much needed encouragement from all of you in attendance and it helped me out of that. In addition I have the benefit of the tried and true evidence that when I don’t write/play, I become depressed, hence the necessity. I have always hoped that this necessity I feel translates somehow into something meaningful to others and as all of your support and kind words have attested I am feeling more and more confident that it does. That’s all that matters to me. If we floundered in obscurity for thirty years I would just want to know that the music, the words, spoke something very needed to even just one person. Something they had been looking for and finally found. A yearning fulfilled. I am now witness that this does, and has indeed happened and it has been for more than just one person. In my mind’s eye I see all the people this has happened to slowly but surely forming an interconnected web of support that is the very foundation of our existence offering proof that the process of living room song writing to full band stage performance and recording is not just a selfish masturbatory exercise.
We had hoped to be well on our way to releasing our full length album to follow up 2011’s EP Twelve but as it is now nothing has been recorded. We have however been honing our healthy body of new material into something that we hope will be well worth the wait when it finally hits the air waves. The current goal is to begin recording by Spring 2013. In the meantime we hope to have a much more robust gigging schedule this year so you will have plenty of opportunity to hear what we’ve been up to.
Our band consists of a collective effort of balancing the demands of making ends meet via regular (and demanding) jobs, parenthood (in the case of DJ and I) and having enough energy and money left to make the music. This year I plan to be more creative and team oriented in transforming Little Horn into something that will stay on your radar and provide you with a unique soul enriching, multifaceted product that you won’t find anywhere else.
Thank all of you for your support and believing in us when we didn’t even believe in ourselves.
See you out there from a stage somewhere sometime very soon.
