Happy holidays folks,
We here at Possum Central are thrilled to announce that Carolinacana, our fourth studio album, is finally here. Yes ladies and gents, Santa brought us 1,000 little shrink wrapped presents that we’re planning on re-gifting to all of you!!
This Friday, December 30th, Possum Jenkins will celebrate the release of Carolinacana with a special CD release show at The Garage in Winston-Salem. Joining us on the bill will be one of North Carolina’s finest musicians, singer-songwriter and super soul brother Greg Humphreys. In addition to his trio of stellar solo offerings, Humphreys also serves as frontman for alt. soul outfit Hobex and college rock favorites Dillon Fence.
The show will start at 9:30 with an opening set by Greg, followed by a long night of Possum tunes old and new. The cover is $8. Carolinacana will be for sale at the show for a special CD release show price. The new disc will be for sale via our website in the coming days, as well as other sites in the near future including CD Baby, iTunes and others.
Once again, we’d like to extend our utmost gratitude to our Kickstarter supporters who made the new record possible. Y’all went to bat for us when we needed you and we will be forever in your debt. We sincerely hope that we’ve done you proud with the new batch of songs. We will be mailing all of your rewards within the next week. Or, if you’re going to be at the CD release party, you can pick them up at The Garage.
(A quick aside about sharing music: We need you to share. We want you to share. We want you to burn a copy of our disc and give it to a friend, or email post some tracks online. Of course we’d like to sell some CDs, but spreading the Possum gospel is more important than freaking out over a few dollars. Help us get the word out by sharing.)
In other massively exciting news, Possum’s very own Nathan Turner and his wife Jennifer welcomed Levi Andrew Turner into the world a few weeks ago. We’re all extremely proud and excited for the Turner family, and can’t wait to get L.A. on stage with the band!!
Alright folks, that’s about all the news that’s fit to print. We can’t wait for you to hear Carolinacana. We’ll see you at the show.
