**FREE** Digital Download Holiday EP "Merry Christmas From Planting Seeds Records"


It has been an adventurous year! I had a great time with my solo tour of the east coast over the summer & fall. I got to know the Greyhound Bus line VERY well, Kerouac would have been proud.

My new band "Linda Draper & the Studs" (with Eric Puente on drums & Scott Fragala on bass) enjoyed our debut performance at Webster Hall in July and rocked out in the CMJ music marathon at Knitting Factory back in Oct. where I got to hear some of my new favorite bands Quilty and Battlehooch, among others. Also, it was cool to finally see old time faves, Dean & Britta's musical performance to Andy Warhol's "13 Most Beautiful People".

And now, in celebration of the holiday spirit, my label Planting Seeds Records, is giving away a FREE online EP from now until New Year's Day, Called "Merry Christmas From Planting Seeds Records". This free online EP includes my track "Merry Christmas (hint: my song is not very merry, nor does it have much to do with Christmas). Other gems on it include tracks from THE LOVETONES (who also rocked CMJ earlier this year) MARK CROZER, THE YOUNG SINCLAIRS, PINKIE, PAULA KELLEY and THE BEDROOM SET w/ANGELIQUE EVERETT.

The song I contributed to it, was originally recorded many years back, produced by Kramer and originally released on what is a now out of print CD, "Patchwork" back in 2002. Get your free online EP here ---> http://www.plantingseedsrecords.com/media.html

Other than that, not much going on for now. I am preparing for my west coast tour in March! Until then, I will mostly be hibernating/practicing/maybe even get back to writing some new songs. Hope you are all well and enjoying the holiday season.
