We're most likely entering the studio in June to begin work on our 2nd CD. We're really excited about the new material and can't wait to share it with you all. Problem is, studio time is expensive! If you'd like to help ensure the album reaches its potential, please consider making a donation through the Merch Page (The donation button is towards the bottom). We've got lots of gifts for those who do (credit in the liner notes, signed merch, play on the album etc.)!. All amounts are appreciated and will receive a thank you from us. Regular purchases are also a great help.
Rob gives an in-depth interview about improvisation around the 2hr 20 min. mark of the latest installment of Love Letters. He's the "mystery guest."
Due to her numerous time-consuming committments, cellist Katinka Kleijn has stepped down as a full-time member of District 97. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with her in both the recording studio and select live performances as a special guest.
Check out our Bio page for the thoughts of Bill Bruford, John Wetton, Roine Stolt and other incredible individuals on District 97. Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson, Genesis etc.): I love the CD...the sheer skill and gusto with which they tackle it makes you laugh out loud. Great drumming. Jonathan plays and writes like a demon. Congratulations to them. (Bill and Jonathan, both Paiste Cymbals artists, had a chance to jam out together last December in Memphis, TN)
