Elliott Yamin Checks In
Elliott Yamin, in a recent interview, confessed, “I could probably get more out of My Space, but Im not really too good…I understand that people sell records through there, people just network through there. It just a great meeting place for people. I know that I have an official page, but I just dont know how to open it and get into it, you know? Im really bad at that…”
Good news. Elliott has finally decided to “get more” out of his MySpace. And it’s a good thing he did. While he’s been holed up in the studio recording tracks for an album he hopes to release in early ’07, his silence spawned much speculation and worry in his fan community.
Just in the nick of time, Elliott sends this MySpace message, reassuring his fans with news of music to come, including a Christmas tune–a cover of Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas”:
First of all, I want to thank you for all of the amazing comments and support over the past several months. I promise to keep the updates coming on a regular basis from this point on…so please check back because you never know what we’re going to post at any given moment (maybe a sneak peek at some new music????????).
I know that there are a bunch of questions about my record and when it’s coming out – not to mention the rumors that are floating around out there. One thing I can tell you is that I’ve been writing and recording a bunch of songs for the record with some great people, and I can’t wait to share the music with everyone. I’ve been in Los Angeles, Nashville and Richmond – heading to Atlanta next week to write and record as well. There are a lot of interesting opportunities for releasing my record…please do not worry because it’s coming soon! Remember…just because we haven’t announced a label yet does not mean that I am not working on and releasing my music. We are exploring all of the options and are very focused on a situation that would be the best of all worlds.
Over the next couple weeks you will notice changes to the MySpace page, and I will be posting messages regularly (blogs, video, audio). I am in the studio now finishing up a song that we stared this past week, and I just finished a song for the holidays…it’s a cover of Donny Hathaway’s version of “This Christmas.” I can’t wait for you guys to hear it and I will make sure that all of my “friends” get to sample it first.
I look forward to seeing everyone on tour in ’07! Please be patient over the next few weeks…good things are coming soon!!!! Love – Elliott
