Charles R. Cross on Masterwish 

“Danny Newcomb is a musician with a rich and lengthy Seattle pedigree, and his new album is full of folky hooks and poppy riffs that will win your heart. But Newcomb’s strongest suit with ‘Masterwish’ is his commitment to well-crafted songs — that standard makes this album soar. It’s only September, but ‘Masterwish’ most certainly will belong on a list of the Top Ten Seattle Records of 2015.” — Charles R. Cross, Author


Thank you!! 

Hockeytalkter records 7" released!!  Thank you to all 200 or so of you who filled up Easy Street Records last night and helped us play one of our best shows.  In the groove, in the pocket -- whatever you call it -- it was a good feeling just to be up there and have so many of you knowing the songs, and getting into the music.  Mike McCready rocked the house with solos on "Sundays" and "Jumping Jack Flash", while Dianne Krouse jumped up on the PA and honked her saxaphone.  Thanks to Annie O'Neill for singing on "King of Nothing", and of course Rick, Ryan, Eric, Fiia and Faith for bringing the songs to life.
     Hearing from people about how much they like the new record has been great, and it was cool to get a chance to meet some new people after the show and sign some of the new singles that were selling at a good clip.  (Close shave, Chris Adams!)

   Thank you to Matt at Easy Street for coming up with the idea and being a supporter, you rock!  To everyone else:  I love writing songs -- but it wouldn't mean a thing if none of you listened!

All the best, and hopefully see you soon, Danny

Hockeytalkter release party!! 7 pm this friday 

Helloooo West Seattle!!!  Looking forward to this friday -- free show, all ages, 7 pm.  We will have Masterwish cds and the new Hockeytalkter 7" vinyl single for sale, and will be hanging out chatting after the show.  A great record store -- thanks Matt, for having us!

Hockeytalkter. com! 

So, Here I am with my label boss, Mike McCready who is putting out our 7" vinyl single through his new label, Hockeytalkter this friday.  "One wish is the A side and "Sundays" is the B side, where he plays a tasty solo!  We're celebrating with a release show at Easy Street Records on September 4th at 7pm.  It is all-ages and we will have cd copies of Masterwish on sale and most likely a few copies of the Hockeytalkter single, and we will be hanging out and chatting with folks.  Thanks Mike!

CD Release Show 

If you squint, and look for the sparkle, you will see them: a couple of golden eggs behind the geese.  This was an alternate shot I was thinking of for my record cover.  In the end, it didn't feel right to me -- the songs felt like more of a city-scape and the pace too fast for the geese.   Tonight the Sugarmakers  and I play our cd release in seattle, and will have hard copies in hand.  12 songs, finished.  It has been a great bit of work in every sense of the word.  
Look forward to seeing you soon, if not tonight,  Danny

Hockeytalkter and Kexp and Old Seattle 

Hockeytalkter is going to announce a presale for the vinyl 7", One Wish / Sundays, so check out their site on Facebook starting next week for details  -- it is their first release and I am proud to be it!
   Just got new stickers made up after giving them away at the last few shows -- promptly put one on the old f150 -- helps the paint job a little bit, I think.  Hides at least one dent.  I got to keep up appearances in Seattle these days with all the bling going on, and all the money being made.  The nice thing about driving an old pickup is people let you merge.

Kexp has been awesome!  Kevin Cole has played Masterwish almost everyday in the Afternoons, and John Richards has thrown some "Sundays" in in the morning show.  Now that is some Seattle love, right there!  Please check in with the station if you have a chance and request a song!  Scheduling a live --in studio performance, will let you know as soon as I do.

Thank you,  Danny

Release of Masterwish! 

Hey friends -- Whewwww!!  Sooo glad that we finally saw the digital release of the recording through this week.  It's been a long journey getting our debut record out there!  But that's the whole point -- it doesn't  mean anything if you can't hear it -- and that of course is the whole reason we made it…..  I'll be putting out a couple of b-sides in the upcoming weeks and we'll have the vinyl 7" for sale soon -- presale on Hockeytalkter's website in the next week or so, and we will have hardcopy/cd versions of the album at the release show on the 21st of this month at the Tractor.  Thank you for buying, listening to the record!!

all the best, Danny and Rick, Eric and Fiia.
