So it is about 99.9% sure that my next label home will be a major label. Not just any major label...one in particular, but until the deal is finalized I'd feel more comfortable waiting to tell you guys specifics. However, I want to let you guys know what's going on...
The morning that I was granted my wish to be released from my deal with Brash, about 10 minutes after the release phone call, I was on the phone with the President of a major label talking about signing there. The next morning we (Mitch & I) had a meeting with him, the VP of A&R and the VP of Marketing and we just talked about the direction of the record and we gave them the songs.
That was Friday a week ago. This last week, everyone had time to live with the music and I got to talk with the President of the company on Friday afternoon this week and all cylinders are firing on getting this deal up and running and having new music recorded and into your hands as fast as possible.
Obviously, deals are negotiations and negotiations can go wrong from time to time, but I am pretty sure that everyone involved (I know it's the case on my end of things) really wants this to work out and work out quickly! We're really hoping to have a single out by the time the Back To School Tour II happens.
Back to School is going out August 27 to November 1 with Aaron Shust and I co-headlining and Rough Draft and a soon-to-be-announced guest opening. It's only May and we already have close to 30 shows on the books for the tour!!! We are working to have over 40 and as many as 60! I'm so pumped about this tour it's not even funny!
So anyway...all is good on Sligh front! Just wanna make sure you guys are updated through the highs and lows!
