just stumbled on your blog at NY Times. Brought a smile to my face.

Would you believe I'm freakin' 30 years old now?

Drop me a note sometime, partner - if your schedule allows.

All the best,

Loved the blog entry and the song!
You can write in any medium...
I like the this final(?) version of "All Talk". There is something about that earlier version with the "upright" bass that I like. I guess it was the rawness of it. the finished version imho is better but I do like that other one for the Velvet Underground meets Morphine vibe. Good luck in the moonshine and other stuff capitol of the USA

The whole NY Times blog was very enjoyable.
A nice peak into the creative process.

CANCELLED - the new Bandcamp single by PETER HOLSAPPLE - released today, December 3, 2021

  Today, December 3, 2021, I have released a new single on Bandcamp entitled CANCELLED.  Just to be clear, the song is called CANCELLED. There was some question on social media whether the release had BEEN cancelled, which it had not, as it was just released.  Or dropped, if you can do that with ephemeral stuff like downloads. You can buy it here .  And you can watch my lyric video here . I hope you like it.  Remember I'm heading out on a house concert tour in March, so come to a show in your neck of the woods!

I know, I know. You haven't heard from me lately, and I'm sorry. The future's looming large, and distractions have been keeping me away from DTBMMLF. Meanwhile, the Times songwriting blog is up so you can go read that for the moment. I'll be back soon, I promise. Thank you for your patience.
