Hey Friend!

I haven’t written one of these in a while, I hope you’re doing well! While I haven’t been inactive – in fact, I’ve been putting a lot of time into Spontaneously Combustible Apparel, a new clothing company focused on making positive social change – most of my performances have been private shows or porch concerts that didn’t make sense to share, but now I’ve got some news!

I’ve also got some sweet new press shots, thanks to No.Numbers 

First, the immediate: for the first time, Hello Headrush will be doing a livestream performance! In a normal year, the past month would have been spent furiously preparing for IngenuityFest, Cleveland’s 3-day celebration of arts, technology and music. This year, the Ingenuity has gone virtual, teaming up with the 48 Hour Virtual Music Festival, for an event called Virtually INGenious. Your three favorite androids will be kicking off the festival at 7pm tonight, streaming live from the Hello Headrush Facebook page!

Next, there’s new music on the way! The second single from my upcoming EP will be coming out October 9. It’s called “The New Contagion”, and you can pre-save it on Spotify now! Pre-saving may seem like a small thing, but as more folks hit that pre-save button, the song generates more attention from music curators, which can help spread new music to more ears. It would mean a ton to me if you pre-saved the track

Of course, if there’s a release date for a second single, it should be no surprise that the full EP will follow soon after. The release date for the new record, entitled “Through This Fire”, has been set for October 23. I feel like I always say this in the lead-up to releasing a new record, but it’s always true: I’m SO EXCITED about these new songs, and I can’t wait for you to hear them! 

While it’s to be expected that my performance calendar’s going to look different than it did in The Before Times, in addition to the live-streams I DO have some upcoming public performances – limited capacity, socially-distanced, and mask-mandatory – but I’d still love to see some friendly faces, even if I can only see the top half! The October 24th show will be your first opportunity to snag a physical copy of Through This Fire.

As always, it’s possible that additional shows will be added to the schedule, but even if not, there will definitely be more news leading up to the release of Through This Fire, so make sure to follow me on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube) so you don’t miss anything!

Thanks as always for joining me on this journey, through all its twists and turns.
