Black Tape For A Blue Girl Kickstarter MEMORABILIA Archive

The campaign for the new Black Tape For A Blue Girl album passed the 110th-pledger, and we’re 62% of the way to the $12,000 goal. I really appreciate seeing your support of my work. It’s been seven years since the last new Black Tape For A Blue Girl album, and the music business has changed a lotin those years. Being supported by people who care about my art is really encouraging.

I like reconnecting with you. I’ve been told that back in the 90s, my songs helped many of you through tough times. Often, it was the soundtrack to your high school or college years. These connections help remind me why I am making music.

I create to connect with you.

I write something that matters to me, in hopes that it matters to you, too.

This new album is like the classic 90s releases with a mix of relationship-songs as well as existential reflections on life. Those messy questions about who I am and where I am on my path.

Black Tape For A Blue Girl Kickstart their new album

The Kickstarter for These fleeting moments is now live

Watch the video and please make a pledge!

Deluxe limited CD & 2LP. Picking up Blacktape’s classic 90s darkwave, ethereal sound; original vocalist Oscar returns on their 30th anniversary.

I’m so excited about this album. It turned out great. Oscar Herrera is singing again after a 17-year retirement and he sounds amazing. I have been a fan of his voice since I first saw his band in the early 80s, so it’s especially monumental to me that he’s singing my music again. His involvement allowed me to write the type of songs I know only Oscar could perform! He suggested his daughter Dani as the band’s female vocalist, and it was a great idea. Their voices work nicely together, and she touchingly delivers a number of songs on her own. You know I’m big on family, so that connection is extra cool.

Listening to your comments over the years regarding what you like about my work, I think I’ve created an album that is a perfect follow-up to the releases from the 90s. There’s nearly 25 minutes of instrumentals, there’s strings, there’s deep personal lyrics reflecting on life, there’s ethereal & neo-classical, there’s dramatic and emotional vocals, and some old synths that I haven’t used in forever.
