I visited Asheville, North Carolina in July of 2022.
I wrote a song about it shortly after and released the first version in August of 2022.
Now, a year and a half later, Asheville, in its final form is ready for the world.
Thanks for coming along on this journey with me. It feels like a big step forward in my music career. I can't wait to see where this song is taking me.
You don't have to wait either, you can watch me play this version live with the band now.
As for the release, I'm celebrating on instagram live next Friday at 12:30 PM MST.
I'll be joined by my friend and poet Jen Grace Stewart. I'm giving away a copy of limited edition vinyl during the broadcast so be there if you can! I'll be playing live and we'll hear the poem that worked its way into the closing lyrics of Asheville.
I found this event happening on Instagram. Check it out. https://www.instagram.com/vonbieker?upcoming_event_id=18008265038036166
Jen writes beautifully so I can't wait to share that with you.
OK, I think that's it for now.
OH WAIT ...
Paid Backstage Backers get Asheville TODAY. In just a few hours. It's a little way to say thank you for believing in the music I'm making and helping me get here.
My paid supporters have been a massive encouragement and blessing this year. If you'd like to join them with as little as $30 for a whole year of support (or $3 a month), I'd be so grateful. You'll get exclusives along the way, too.
If you're already a Backer, keep an eye on that inbox ...
In dumb hope,
(Dave) Von Bieker
