Let's Fulfill This Puppy!
about 1 month ago – Thu, Jan 11, 2018 at 05:17:47 PM

HI Kids!

We're ready to fulfill! Thanks for your patience. It would have cost a lot of extra postage money to send the CD's and the vinyl out separately... Everything looks beautiful!

44 of you haven't filled out your questionnaires so look for a reminder in your e-mail, k? That doesn't affect those of you who have filled them out so don't worry.

I'm signing all the vinyl on Monday and they should be on the way to you soon after...

Snuggles,

Chris.

Download cards
3 months ago – Tue, Nov 14, 2017 at 11:43:55 PM

We’re having trouble with the codes of the download cards. The songs are coming up in random order. Once we get that straightened out we can print out the cards and get the vinyl out. I’d like to ship the vinyl and the cd’s at the same time because there are plenty of people who ordered both. Thanks for your patience… the vinyls are going to be beautiful. I’m pretty sure we’ll have this straightened out quickly. Your Furry Pal, Chris. PS. Here’s a picture of my cat, Gus.

Today’s The Day!

Release day! For reasons explained in the previous update I’m waiting to send out the CDs and vinyl meanwhile… Here’s a link to listen on SoundCloud. This is the whole record… I’m going to take this down when the CD’s go out but in the meantime you guys can enjoy this private link: https://soundcloud.com/chris-barron-650521546/sets/angels-and-one-armed-jugglers-mastered-tracks/s-zwQ3K

If you want to listen on Apple Music here’s a link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/angels-and-one-armed-jugglers/id1299201248

I’m getting ready for my gig at Rockwood tonight so wish me “break a leg”…

Every time I get to another one of these milestones, I’m reminded of just how grateful I am to all of you.

Your furry pal,

Chris.

Title track!
4 months ago – Fri, Oct 13, 2017 at 06:31:07 PM

Listen to the title track on YouTube! Remember in the intro video when I asked how awesome the recording would sound with real horns? Well… The answer is nigh. https://youtu.be/0Xd-PwLlMOI

Couple more things… Friday night, NYC, October 20, Rockwood Music Hall, 8:30 PM, record release concert. Tickets: http://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/mobile/index/1537430

The manufacturing order for the vinyl went through without the design for the sleeves. They were shipped with just a plain white, polyurethane lined sleeve. That’s going to put the shipping date back a week but I thought it was worth it to have the package be awesome and perfect. I hope you guys don’t mind…

we’re getting to the fulfillment stage very soon. There’s about 60 of you that haven’t filled out your questionnaires… That just confirms your address so your stuff goes to the right place. You can also order more things if you want them like extra CDs or really, anything you could’ve gotten during the campaign.

OK! Enjoy the tune!!

Chris.

Fill Out Your Surveys!!!!
5 months ago – Thu, Sep 14, 2017 at 12:57:08 AM

Hiya, girls and boys!

I just sent out the surveys!! Just to refresh your memory... the survey double checks your mailing address, let's you order cool extra stuff and just generally makes all your dreams come true! 

This is it, sports fans! We are in the home stretch...

Once again, I'm reminded of just how grateful I am to you all for taking a punt on my record solely based on your faith in my abilities. 

With much love,

Chris.

P.S...

Many of you maybe didn't know that the year previous to the making of Angels And One-Armed Jugglers, I lost my voice to a paralyzed vocal cord. I had a harrowing time wondering about my future as a singer, as you can well imagine. Over the course of a year, my mind dredged the darkest silt of the deepest shadows of my soul, groping from day to day for the hope that my livelihood and my reason for living would return.

It did.

And when it did, Angels And One-Armed Jugglers became an all consuming, artistic obsession. The total expression of what I would have wanted to express in the medium of the Rock 'N' Roll album had I never been able to make another rock 'n' roll album. 

I didn't mention this in my campaign because I didn't want the campaign to be about that. For an exhibitionist, I'm a relatively private person and furthermore, I wanted the album backed, not me.

I confide this to you, the backers, at this point, to share with you the relief I feel and the personal triumph the making of the album constitutes in the context of my personal life.

In conclusion, I have been the eponymous "One-Armed Juggler" and you, the Angels.

Thank you. (Thank you, thank you, thank you)
