Rainbows and Unicorns!
Hello! Yes, yes it's been far too long since we have spoken. Had a little Life to attend to.
I am here today to talk about Kim Boekbinder. Short answer: we need to fund her show so that she will play for us in Hartford. Now for the long answer...
Kim Boekbinder is just straight-up magic. I've listened to her music and felt like she had lived inside my heart for a year, then wrote about it. But I would have noticed something like that. She's hard to miss!
She took a minute before dashing off to Australia to answer a few questions for me. Thanks a bunch!
What are audiences like in other countries compared to the US?
I find that my my audiences tend to be quite international so it's hard to say how an audience is different in another country. I think quite a lot has to do with the venue too.
How do you feel about all the buzz regarding your Kickstarter campaign?
Seems like I thought about just the right thing at just the right time. I'm excited about it. I hope it helps me reach the next level in my career. I have grand plans for my art and want to be able to better execute it.
Are there any plans for a new album soon?
I leave for Australia in a few hours, I'll be writing my next album for the month of September. I'm SO excited!
Kim is organizing a US tour for the fall. She is using Kickstarter to pre-sell the shows, and will play the cities that are fully funded. Hartford is on the list, but we've only got 6 more days to fund the show! I know it's short notice, but I didn't think Hartford would leave it hanging 'til the last minute. C'mon, Hartbeat! Let's show Kim how we do art. It's in our name...hARTford. (Yeah, it was corny. Fund the show, and I will quit it.)
Let's bring Kim to Hartford, people.
