HAPPY NEW YEAR Y’ALL!

Here we are, the first official day of 2015. The last couple of months were a little crazy. I worked a lot and just didn’t have time to commit to wholly roller like I wanted to. I’m getting there, though. Thanks for sticking around. It’s a new year and I’m excited to keep this thing going.

The fun starts next week, stay tuned…

You can follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Hooray!

 

 

 

 

 

New music from The Answer Page

Okay, I know. I’ve started over like 12 times this year. I’m sorry. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to write more, specifically here, but in general. And read more, I’ve decided to follow Book Riot’s challenge. More on that later.

The real reason I’m here (besides to apologize for my absence) is to tell you about The Answer Page’s new and final album, The Nightmares of My Dearest Cardinal. This final installment of tracks focuses on the loss of singer/songwriter Nate McKee’s mother. It’s heartbreaking and beautiful. Listen:

The Nightmares of My Dearest Cardinal is available on bandcamp, you can download it for free or name your own price. Nate says if you do pay for the album, the money will be used to press the record on vinyl.

Meg Webb’s new tune, “If You Ever (Come Back to Me),” is a super fun gem that you’re definitely going to fall in love with. This playful track is a taste of what’s to come, Meg will be releasing a new album called Beauteous Maximus on Christmas Day via Lolipop Records.
