I knew the level of support I offered Joy Electric would hurt my music budget (and thus prevent me from buying music from other artists) but I went ahead anyway.
Joy Electric has set my imagination on fire over the past twenty years and twenty-seven releases! (That's right, Twenty-Seven!)
The brilliance of Kickstarter projects is that it gives me the opportunity to support the artists who inspire, move and engage me.
In a very real way, I helped make Dwarf Mountain Alphabet possible.
And in addition to the great album I received, I was also rewarded with a limited press 7" album and handwritten lyrics from Mr. Joy Electric himself, Ronnie Martin.
I knew the lyrics were coming . . . but I didn't realize he would write out lyrics to every song on the album.
So, I share my joy with you:
