Time to get some questions answered!
Q: Can I buy the album in a store?
A: If you can get your buns to western Massachusetts, then yes. Right now, the only two stores that have the physical album are Turn It Up in Northampton, MA and Art Alive in Amherst, MA.
Q: What are these “studio demo” bonus tracks and who gets them?
A: These are unmastered, uncut demos of 3 tracks – “Hangin On,” “Selfish,” and “Eyoh” – that you can hear before I got my computer chop chop on them and did musical arrangement reconstruction (note: these are not official music terms). The tracks are only available on Bandcamp and came with the Pre-Order edition of the album (to be true bonus tracks, they were super secret and remained invisible until September 10).
Q: Are you making merch available? Will it be available outside the US too?
A: Been working on some comfy merch – it’s in the works at the moment. I’ve been trying on all sorts of t-shirts and hoodies and water bottles. It will be available internationally (as soon as I figure out logistics).
Q: Do you have vinyl available?
A: Not yet. Working on it.
Q: Do you wear a lot of plaid?
A: Sometimes : )
Q: So, tell me more about how you made this album. Is it really just you? Even the man-like and squeaky voices? And how long did it take?
A: Yes – I did all the writing, recording, composing, performing, arranging, producing, and artwork. The man-like and squeaky voices are me processed through a “formant shifter” and few other effects.
In album making – there’s traditionally a process called “mastering” that happens during the final stages. Mastering is as significant to the sound as an instagram filter is to your photo (though much more involved). For this – I recruited Ella Riot band-mate and talented friend, Tyler Duncan, who stem mixed and mastered each track, making them pop.

Q: How can I get a physical copy of the album?
A: Right now, other than at the two local Massachusetts stores, you can order it through Bandcamp.
Q: What is Team TRJ?
A: That is the team of people helping get the music to you. They are hardworking, dedicated, awesome, and I want to thank them for all the time, love, and care they put in.
Q: I have an issue with my order/Bandcamp (shopping-cart malfunction, shipping info, duplicate purchases, etc). Who can I contact?
A: Ah yes! You click this link: BANDCAMP SUPPORT. Then submit the form.
Q: What is your printer’s name?
Q: My question hasn’t been answered yet. Can I ask it somewhere else?
A: Shoot an email to thereverbjunkiemail [at] gmail [dot] com. Team TRJ will answer as many Qs as possible.
