OK…Sorry about the delay…. It shouldn’t take me seven months to update my correspondence with my fans…. Sorry again…. All right, now that this done, here are the BIG announcements….
As of march 1st, my debut album, “The English House” is now, even as we speak, distributed through Eclectra Records for the territory of North America. Technically, that means that you could be able to find it in your favorite record store or CD outlet. However, reality being what it is, chances are it may be hard to spot since I am a new artist and that there are only so many copies printed. If you would like to purchase the CD, I encourage you to ask the retailer to order it: “The English House” by J.P. Mortier on the Eclectra Records label, catalogue number EC-1008. This will help me in creating a demand at the store and this may incite the retailer to order more copies.
My CD will also be available through the internet on CD Baby. Info to come very soon.
Again, since this is not a perfect world and that Santa Claus, the Loch Ness monster and the Sasquatch nor his little cousin exists, I am not expecting the CD to sell itself. I am hard at work promoting that sucker. I’ll save you the gory details and tell you what I am doing to promote it starting with the album launch (or should I say re-launch )… So here it is, folks…the official announcement…
THE ENGLISH HOUSE ALBUM LAUNCH
Thursday, April 14 at 8:30 p.m.
2035 St-Denis, Montreal.
Be sure to tell your friends. Headcounts are important!
Performing with me will be Stéphane Pelletier on guitars, Sylvain Auclair on “stick” and bass and Daniel Grégoire on drums. They are terrific musicians! This is an album launch so this is not your average show. I hope to be doing more shows with them and solo so be on the lookout for the announcements. I hope to be doing shows in and around Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and even in France.
I am also busy promoting my album to the printed media and, of course, radio stations across Canada. I will ask you fans out there a really big favor: As of April 1st, call up your favorite station and request them to play ” Bela Lugosi “, the official single from my CD or any other song from my album. Word of mouth is powerful and I will need your help for that one.
Thank you very much for your help and I will keep in touch…promise!
