Waiting for the starting gun.
Last week, I sent the mastered tracks and artwork for Deep Salvage to OasisCD and after dotting a few more I's and crossing a few more T's, everything is now "in production". According to Oasis, they will be done with printing and packaging on June 22, which means I'll get my discs around June 24 or 25, so I expect to release the album a few days after that.
I'm excited, but also strangely melancholy. Actually, it's not strange, I've been this way my whole life, always a bit down just as I'm about the finish something. I think the reason is self-doubt, a pernicious pang of uncertainty that never fully quiets down.
Regardless, here I am, committed, ready, just waiting for the signal. A few more weeks…
