I did it! I FINALLY recorded and published another episode of my podcast! In this one, my mystery friend and I discuss men, family and laughing at life. She is one of my favorite people ever and we ended up having a really hilarious and interesting conversation, which is, of course, always the goal. So that was awesome. Check it out!
FINALLY I got a moment to sit down and fully update my music on my website, plus put a store on there for ordering physical copies of my album! You can now buy my actual CD from my website by clicking here:
You can also buy the digital version, or get both by getting the physical album, which includes a download of the digital album at no additional cost! Enjoy and spread the word!
And, last but not least, you can listen to all my songs on my site now, for free! Yay!
Over the weekend I taped Episode 2 of The JC Cassis Show, my new podcast. In it, I interviewed my awesome and hilarious friend, Carl Arnheiter, creator and host of Inside Joke, the hugely popular New York comedy show, and writer/performer of various wonderful things. We had an awesome and hilarious conversation about our awkward childhoods, crazy people, and guidos in ponds. Take a listen here:

And please take a second to click on the iTunes link and write me a review and give the show five stars! Thanks!
Wow, time has flown by since last entry. I’ve been having a GREAT time having more time to devote to my career. The first order of my hard copy CDs should be here any day now, so if you want one, just let me know at talktojccassis AT gmail DOT com. I’ll be setting up the store widget on my website very soon.
One of the top things on my list of priorities is cleaning up/revamping my website. I want to make it as up-to-date as possible and make it easy for people to order CDs and merch directly through my site.
The other thing I’ve started doing is podcasting! I’m in the midst of trying to get the podcast online and on iTunes, and once it is, it will be so great! I made great cover art for it (see above) and taped the first episode last week with my lovely pal Dan Freeman of the wonderful band Comandante Zero. The episode is really funny and interesting and I look forward to doing a lot more of them once I can just figure out how the hell to get them online. I’ve already got instructions, now it’s just a question of successfully following them. I’ll be posting the podcast here as soon as I can!
So I don’t think I ever got a moment to blog about it, but a few weeks ago (um, 2010 is passing by way too fast!!!) I did a superfun photo shoot with the amazing and wonderful (and Australian!) Alex Green at his glamorous SoHo apartment, where I did the 12/19 show. We shot three different looks for about 4 hours and got some amazing shots out of it. I have many favorites, but one of the overall best shots is definitely the one you see above, which I ended up using as the cover of my album. I posted it on facebook (friend me here) a couple days ago and people have been loving it. I’m so glad!
Which brings me to my next exciting bit of news, which is that the cover art, and all the art for the hard copy CD and booklet of my album, are now done!!! Once I have a moment to do a final listen-through of all the tracks and final proof of the artwork, it will be time to order HARD COPIES of my album to sell at shows and pass around to industry folk, and put the CD on iTunes, FINALLY. It’s been a year-long journey (woulda been much shorter without a day job, but what can you do), and I am so excited to finally have a finished product to show for all my hard work and banging my head against the wall trying to write great songs (which I TOTALLY have).
I will be continuing to release the album track by track through my website over the next many weeks, and by the time I’m finished, the whole album will be available for purchase on iTunes, which will be so great. I’ll finally have a proper presence there again, and I can’t wait to see the sales and reviews from fans. 🙂
