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.

She could be lying about the packaging... or, you could be the only person who she sent it to and she is secretly stalking you...

I like Corrinne May. I listened to her songs during my recent bereavement. Thanks for letting me know her new album is out. I doubt I can get them here in Kuching, but I'll keep a look out of them when travel around.

alison, tell me your new address and I'll make it a point to stalk YOU hahaa

kenny, I asked her husband (he answers the sales emails) whether it's available in shops in Malaysia, and he says he'll get back to me later; he'll ask the distributors in Singapore who handle the region... ;)

next one i confirm, chop, guarantee get autographed copy, i've got her second album liao (had my SO bring it over from Sg to me, she'd kill me if i bought another one)...

really enjoy her music, though i must say i preferred the first album. It has this rawness, and somehow the emotions just shine through. the second one is nice, but as you said, it's a bit more poppish.

i heard from my SO that it's not really well stocked in Sg, which i feel is a waste, she's singaporean and her music is way way better than the likes of SgIdol.

You've got Damien Rice? It's nice as well, emotional tracks.
