I have 3 great reasons to be posting this!!!
I am proud to announce that with 26 hours left, we have met the goal for the Kickstarter campaign to help the new Brent Kirby & His Luck record, Patience Worth, become a reality!!!
I cannot thank all of the people who pledged enough for the belief and support that you have given me! It’s humbling and amazing. I cannot wait to get you your gifts and to hear the new record. I’m very excited to be fulfilling the unique gifts too, such as the house concerts, songwriting lessons, officiating a wedding, handwritten lyrics, youtube dedications, pre-release listening party, and even writing a brand new song and recording it! The relationships that are born from these connections last a lifetime. Thanks so much again!
IT’S NOT TOO LATE!!! I want to remind people who haven’t pledged yet, that for the next 26 hours, you still can pre-order the new record, get limited edition t-shirts, and all of the other gifts. Every little bit helps with the completion of the record, and all it will go towards the cause!!!! Here is the link to click and pledge or to share!
The Jack Fords are releasing our long awaited CD, “There It Is” TONIGHT (Friday, March 6th) at the Happy Dog at the Euclid Tavern (University Circle)! This record has been years in the making, and I am so excited for it to be out and for everyone to hear it!!!
The show starts at 9pm with Ray Flanagan & The Authorities opening, then we will be on at 10pm and play until they kick us out!
For more info, visit www.jackfords.com, Happy Dog at The Euclid Tavern 11625 Euclid Ave Cleveland OH.
This Sunday, March 8, from 2-5pm at Brothers Lounge Concert Hall, Brent Kirby & His Luck are playing in support of Marilyn’s Voice, an organization that helps to eliminate the puppy mill industry in Ohio. A very important cause, and promised to be a great event with raffles and silent auction items.
Please support the cause!!!

Kickstarter update and shows!!!!
I have been overwhelmed by the support that everyone has given to the Kickstarter campaign and the new record, Patience Worth! I cannot thank you enough for your belief in me and my music. We are all in this together and I’m looking forward to sharing this with you!
We are at $7677 with 8 days to go in the campaign! That means we are $1323 away from the goal!!! It’s about $150 a day. If you know anyone else who might be interested in pledging and getting some incredible gifts, please pass this link along!
Here is a video that talks about the current state of the Kickstarter campaign, the meaning of the record title Patience Worth, and a snippet of the one of the tunes on the new record called “Is The Truth”.
Recording has been going well and I have been working on adding the colors needed to round out the recordings. I’m looking to have it done by mid/end of March. The tunes are pretty diverse but seem connected.
Here is the working track listing for now:
Say That You Want Me To
If It Rains All Spring
Some of The Things
Is The Truth
Days Go By
Something I don’t know
Easy To Be
Keep It Safe
I Can Make You
Sunsets Are Golder
Jim Stewart is an amazing engineer, and is doing a wonderful job on these recordings. We sent two tunes, “Better Days” and “Girl I Love” over to be mastered for vinyl and we should have a 7” record by the CD release on May 9th with those two tunes on it. Everything sounds wonderful and I can’t wait for you to hear it!!!
Also, I’ll be working with DJScrilla (http://www.thedjscrilla.com), Cleveland’s own, producing a track called “4U2B Mine”. He is amazingly talented and I’m really looking forward to the process and hearing the finished tune!
Again, I appreciate the help with all of this. It means so much to me!
