Singer Snail Mails Her CD Direct To Fans
Woohoo, the autographed CD from Corrinne May arrived today! This women is really cute. In her FAQ on the question 'how will you ship the item', she says, "Lovingly! First, we will pack each item with care, say a little prayer, and then drive to our nearest local Post Office at not more 25 miles/hr and pass it over to our favorite local Postal employee, Dan." Does anybody else in the music business do things like this nowadays? Just like the blogger phenomenon where writers want to do business directly with his or her readers, independent musicians want to get personal with their listeners. The CD can be found in CD shops, Amazon.com, and CD Baby. But one can also get autographed CDs direct from her. The new album Safe In A Crazy World is less of a concept album than the first which I found to be very technical. Still, the new album is a wonderful complement to the first; it's got a more pop style to it. I'm listening to it repeatedly for far, far more times than is advisable. Can't wait for the next album, which I'll probably order from her direct again. Listen to samples here, here, and here.
