Zachary Lucky announces new album, may tour dates and crowd funding campaign!
A new season.
dear friends near and far.I hope that this note is finding you well this morning. today was a good day for many reasons - one being that the sun was shining, and the snow was melting! I don't know how things are where you folks are, but here - its been full on winter until today. I think its safe to say that spring is finally on its way.
with spring comes lots of exciting things. over the past few weeks I've been hunkered down in a studio, about an hour out of saskatoon, working hand in hand with some great folks to make a new record of songs I've written since the release of saskatchewan. I think its safe to say that I've never felt as good about a set of songs as I do about these songs. I can't wait to share them with you.
they'll be released this september, and the record will be called "the ballad of losing you". we just finished making a little video about this record, and if you've got a minute I'd love it if you could watch it!
I really think you'll like it!
i've also started one of those "crowd funding campaigns" in order to help raise some money to finish this album. it's essentially a way to preorder the album. if you think you'd want to do that, and help make this album happen, you can read more over here: http://igg.me/at/zacharylucky
all of that aside, i'm just a couple of days away from heading out on the road. as you probably know by now, I love being out on the road, playing shows, and getting the chance to hang out with you folks. it is where my heart is. i'm excited to see some familiar faces, and meet some new ones. sing some old songs and definitely some of the new ones! I'll be making stops in ontario, quebec, manitoba, and saskatchewan!

sorry for basically writing you folks a novel! and if you made it this far, you should get a prize for reading this whole message. thanks for caring about this, and what I am doing. thanks for being apart of the journey. hopefully I'll run into some of you out on
the road, if not this month, then by the end of the year for sure!
I'll leave it at that folks. thinking of you all.
be well and warm,
I've always thought that it would be great to have a pen and paper mailing list - but time and time again people kept telling me that it would be too labour intensive. So I've opted out for an internet mailing list to keep up with the times!
