Susan's Gibson's Upcoming tour....full steam ahead!

Hello, everybody!


Susan Gibson - In Other Words Album Project from Susan Gibson on Vimeo.

Jana and I have been brainstorming ideas for my next record (you may have seen the awesome big hats that we had to get at Michael Hearne’s Big Barndance weekend--  those are just to hold all of our big ideas!) 

Looking back, I have a couple of songs that are truly stories - “Miles City” and “The Wood Wouldn’t Burn". 
I get requests for these songs.  I get tears out of these songs.  I connect with you through these songs.

I have decided to make my next album an EP (5-6 songs) of stories. Here’s the catch. 
I’m sick of my own stories and I know from talking to some of you that you have great “there’s a song in there” stories. 
You told me some of them directly, some of them I have overheard while eavesdropping on you at the merchandise table. 

Here’s the call that I am issuing.  I want to hear - more accurately, read - your stories in hopes of writing songs from them. 
I want to hear how your Grandma raised 8 kids and sold eggs to buy gas to get to town.
I want to read about how you bumped into your long lost uncle while on a layover in Scranton, Ohio. 
I want to read about winning or losing a spelling bee.  I want to read about your first car. 
I want to read what you want to write. I want to write what you want to hear. 
Now, to clarify this: I don’t want titles or hook lines or rhyming couplets or even song ideas.
I want your stories.  And I want them handwritten.
 
And I want them mailed to my PO Box 1167, Wimberley TX, 78676. 
Hopefully by December 1, 2011.   Is that too much to ask?

You inspire me.
Sing-cerely,
Susan Gibson
