Dottie’s Charms is out!!!
And here is the first of three videos made by the wonderful Iranian-American director Sara Zandlieh.
I have to say, I really had no expectations with the record. I have no label, no publicist, etc. But what I do have is great friends and fans who have been helping me get out the word. I have to especially thank David Hajdu (lyric writer of the ABWA and Mackinac charms) and James Marcus (writer of the Swivel Chair charm) for encouraging me to finish the project. Left to my own devices, I would just be watching re-runs of Mad Men and Doomsday Preppers.
If you are in or near LA, please come to McCabe’s on the 16th. I will be there playing songs from the new record. If you don’t know McCabe’s, it’s actually a guitar shop. It will remind you of an early 1970s folk venue, because it was one, and hasn’t changed.
And… Here is my Dottie Wall of Fame so far.
Here is Dottie with Matt Groening
Jenison who might have figured out Vermmer’s secret.
Here is Dottie with Dick Fosbury, who invented the
“Fosbury Flop” and won the high jump in ’68. And here I am with a bad late 70’s “umbrella” perm.
More to come:
