"The New Phonebook's Here!"

A line out of Steve Martin's 'The Jerk' referring to his name being listed publicly for the first time. Kinda the feeling we got here at Stella's when the box from DiscMakers showed up last week.

"The new Thirty Dollar Stella CDs are here!"

Yep, they're here alright. The digital versions took longer than the pressed CDs, go figure. Anyway the digital downloads will be available 1/23/12 on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Virgin Mega and about 20 more sites.

If you buy the CD you get a piece of plastic you can, play in the car, hold, throw, put a drink on, chew on, a cardboard sleeve with our pics on it and some really heartfelt words, also a cowgirl pinup pic, so that's pretty cool.

If you by the digital downloads, you get a bunch of 0s and 1s crammed into your phone, computer or iPod and a unrealistic sense of well-being from helping to support the production of even more Stella tunes and CDs and downloads in the's like an americana mobius strip of pretty good music and tolerable singing.

Either way we're putting on the sad doggy eyes and asking that you spend two days of your Starbucks money on our little venture here. Make us feel a tiny bit like we're living the dream, albeit just for a moment, and we're "real" musicians.

Ahhhh....that's nice, ain't it? Here's the linky-dink Thirty Dollar Stella's CD

We'll leave the back porch light on and the screen door un-latched for you, come on down to the Second Hand Americana Music Shop and set a spell.
