New CD, New Kickstarter Campaign and New Website!

It’s been quite time for all of us, that’s for sure. Amidst all of the chaos, I keep my sanity by immersing myself in my art. No matter what state of mind I am in or what’s going on around me, creating new music takes me to that happy place that gets lost sometimes. For the last year, I have been observing the world and trying to express my thoughts in song. It’s a way of finding hope in sadness, and comic relief in all of the madness. I have written and recorded 10 new songs that I hope when you hear them, you will find your happy place and will help get you through the rough patches we all experience. The CD is entitled, “Next Stop, Willoughby”. The title song “Willoughby” was inspired by one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes. I have a new Kickstarter campaign that went live late last night that you can view on the link below. You can be a part of this project for as little as $1.00.Thank you all so much for the support and I hope to see you out on the road starting March 1st.

New CD For 2017

Happy New Year from beautiful Central Oregon. I have been feverishly working on my newest solo CD tentatively named, “Next Stop, Willoughby”. I have written and recorded 10 brand new songs that I am really excited about and can’t wait to share. I have always had a dream about recording a project where I do everything and this is it. One of my favorite albums from my youth was McCartney and I have always wanted to do that and so I did. I am mixing now and will have it done by February. It may not end up being McCartney, what is, but it most definitely will be Batdorf! I am planning a Kickstarter campaign in the hopes of raising enough money to manufacture and most importantly promote the music. Hope to see you at a show this year and if you can’t come to one that’s already booked, throw a house concert. Your friends will love it and you will too.

Thanks for the support!

John Batdorf
