Dear Friends,


Life just gets more expansive and interesting as time goes on.  In January 2008, I began recording what became my debut LP Good Evening.  Good Evening was recorded in moments of ecstasy, emotion, and hardship—barely considering or calculating—in the privacy of my own home.  Never did I imagine, at least until the final stages of recording, that these songs would form a discrete package for listeners to ponder, critique, and love.  Since finishing Good Evening in fall 2008, I continued to record, formed a live band and toured the globe, did remixes for several artists, collaborated with some incredible musicians, and graduated from college with a degree in philosophy.

The recordings after Good Evening have lead in several directions: the Want You Back EP, recorded for Italians Do It Better in collaboration with The Samps, a limited tour CD of demos called You F O, and an again limited 7″ through Japanese label Big Love featuring tracks “Falling Far” and “Spiritual Nite Life.”

Now in the wake of this whirlwind of people, places, artists, art (and non-art), I am finally ready to make official the second independent Nite Jewel release through Gloriette Records in the U.S., and internationally through No Pain In Pop and Big Love.  This six song EP entitled Am I Real? spans the gamut of Nite Jewel’s emotional, musical, and social development since the release of Good Evening.  The EP was recorded in-house on analog and digital equipment with production, arrangement, and performing assistance from Cole M.G.N..  Title track “Am I Real?” also features performances and writing and production assistance from Daniel and Andrew Aged from Teen Inc..  The tracklisting is as follows:

Side A:

Another Horizon

We Want Our Things

Forget You & I

Side B:

Falling Far

White Lies

Am I Real?

You can get your copy of Am I Real? digitally through our website on July 20th and on vinyl on August 16th through Other Music, NYC.  We will also be playing a handful of dates to support the release.

Thank you for staying along for the ride.

Love,

Nite Jewel
