I’ve been working on songs for a new full length album but it’ll still be a while before I get to that and I’ve got a few songs that won’t fit on there anyway. So hopefully there will be some new music on here for y’all before too long. Just me and a guitar and maybe some background noises in my office. Should be fun!

Thanks for sticking around!
Joe

joe http://www.joebassett.com <![CDATA[A long time ago… when I once posted updates]]> http://joebassett.com/?p=439 2010-06-08T07:35:17Z 2010-06-08T07:35:17Z It’s almost 3am, I’ve been up trying to get my network running again and figured why not update my site that I haven’t updated in months. So here I am… updating! It’s been an interesting 2010; my little girl is quickly closing in on three years old and while the two’s have not been terrible at all, they’re definitely teaching us lessons in patience. We’re loving every minute with her though and we’re looking forward to a busy summer filled with beaches and cookouts.

Let’s see, what else? I’ve been on a sort of diet since early last year. Lost about 50 pounds so far… mostly from just giving up fast food, sodas and eating better. Go figure. Might try to lose another 20, it’s gone well so far so why not.

My Orioles are terrible… let’s just leave it at that and all look forward to NFL season. Yikes.

I had pneumonia during a double blizzard earlier this year. I was not a fan.

Other than a few shows here and there, I haven’t been playing out too much. I’ve been mostly working on the music for our church and doing plenty of songwriting on the side. If there is a new record on the distant horizon (and I hope there is!), I’m very excited about the early work so far. I might play a few shows this summer locally and maybe a couple this fall. If that all works out, I’ll definitely be playing a few new songs to get a feel for them all. I also upgraded some home studio equipment for demos and finally got a new laptop (hence the updating!). My old powerbook G4 started sounding like an asthmatic banshee so it was time to send it to Grandpop’s farm.

Oh, my friend Aaron and I played at a Memorial Day picnic… rocked out a little Tom Petty, Radiohead, Wilco, Journey and Miley Cyrus. Yup, I nodded my head like “yeah”. It was EPIC.

So that’s a tiny bit of what’s been going on in Bassett Land this past year… just finding truth and beauty in the day to day. Thanks for sticking around!

I’ll be opening up for my good friend (and producer) Jeremy Casella tonight at Grace Fellowship Church in Lincoln, DE (the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln… ‘s college roomate!*). The show is at 7pm and I’m pretty sure there will be a dinner on the grounds at 6pm. So if you’re nearby, come hang out with us, eat some food and hear some music! You can find all the show info here.

Also, you should follow Jeremy and I on Twitter because I’m sure there will be interesting comments and pictures all night… especially now that he has an iPhone!

Grace and peace,
Joe

It starts at 6pm, is $5 at the door and I think I’ll be playing somewhere around that time. So if you’re in town and have nothing to do, come on out, support a great ministry and see me play songs and stuff!

You can find all the info you need right here.

Also, thanks to everyone who has downloaded the new record… I think I’ve gotten better feedback on this record than anything else I’ve done which is really cool. If you haven’t downloaded yet (for FREE), you can do that right now and if you have downloaded it… please, spread the word!

Thanks again and maybe I’ll see some of you tonight!

Grace and peace,
Joe

You can download my new EP After all is said and done right now for FREE! No strings attached, no pyramid scheme, no Nigerian Princes asking for money and no purchases need be made later. However, if you would like to pay something, anything at all, then I am not too proud to say no to you… so there is an option to donate any amount you want as well.

Jeremy Casella and I recorded it over a weekend at his studio in Nashville in between coffee, trips out for BBQ and playtime with the kids (he also worked on it and added some coolness after I left). We dig it and we hope you do too. So feel free to download it, give it a listen and drop me a line to let me know what you think. If you like it, tell your friends about it or give them a copy, anything to spread the word. Thanks a bunch and I’ll talk to you soon!

Grace and peace,
Joe
