Hi, friends.  Many of you helped spread the word just a few months ago about Smalltown Poets Christmas.  I and the rest of Smalltown Poets thank you!  Thanks to you, the Christmas tour went well and our single “Good Christian Men Rejoice” was in the Top 30 on Christian radio this past Christmas season, according to Billboard Magazine.  (SP is planning more Christmas concerts for 2012.)

Now, there’s more good news!  Our longtime buddies and touring companions The Waiting are back in the studio as well.  The new project is a concept record about The Trinity titled “Mysteriet” – a Norwegian word that means “the mystery.”  What better way to describe the sense of wonder at the three holy entities of God? The friends and fans who have heard the music for “Mysteriet” are as excited about this project as I am (maybe even more so)!
The Waiting aims to release the record before the end of the year.  The album will be funded by the band’s fans; you can read more about that here: <http://kck.st/K6lBBQ>

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
