As a Download Participant, you will receive a digital download (320 kbps) of The Thompson Fields, along with our downloadable cover art. Additionally, over the months of making this recording, I will share extensive content with you when you login on our site. We want you to be an integral part in the making of this recording. There will be more than a CD’s length of music, so after the release, you will receive additional downloadable tracks. In ArtistShare fashion, via video, you will experience rehearsals, the recording session, and view interviews with musicians and our engineers. I’ll be taking you into the world of mixing and mastering sessions. Stepping into the physical world that inspired the title piece as well as several other pieces on the recording, I’ll take you on a walk at the Thompson farm in Windom, Minnesota. It’s a place that without doubt helped shape my creative voice. There will even be surprise content. It will be my pleasure to share this collaboration with you. I’m surrounded by absolutely remarkable musicians and people for this project, and it will be a great joy to share their extraordinary talents with you.
