So the "Knocking on Wood" video just reached a million views on YouTube today, even tho the video came out nearly two years after the song!! I feel this moment deserves celebration particularly because (a) it's only the fourth video of mine to ever achieve a million views and (b) this song has saved people's lives. It's maybe the most important Spose song. I receive more messages, emails, and tweets about this song than any other song I've ever written. It's a really special song to me and, thankfully, to others as well. A handful of people even have tattoos of the lyrics to this song. I never really set out to do music to save anyone's life but it's a beautiful byproduct that I hadn't foreseen and I never get tired of hearing how the music helped people through tough times. Happy this song can allow people to feel thankful for the things they have, instead of miserable about the things they don't. And to answer the longstanding mystery about why this video version uses a slightly different version of the chorus than the album: it was a total accident, sent the wrong version to Jason Bosch, who directed it, it was an earlier mix of the song. woops! hah https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuqR3oZjZa8

I was gonna post a video of me reading my children’s book at Bull Moose the other day but the kids asking me questions before I started reading is possibly even better. Little girl Question 1: ‘’AFTER YOU FINISH READING CAN I GIVE YOU A HUG?’’ Second little girl goes: ‘’can I ask you a question?’’ I say ‘’Yes’’ and she goes ‘’My name is Meredith’’ 😂😂 and I feel for the mom who goes ‘’please don’t scream please don’t scream’’ to her kid right before he’s like wahhhhhhhhh once I started reading everybody’s kids were super chill and respectful tho so great job Bangor area parents!!! Doing my next two readings this Sunday 3/10 at Lewiston Bull Moose and Scarborough Bull Moose at noon and 4 pm, respectively. Come thru!!!

So, I decided it was time to let people hear "The Stolen Album" without having to buy a cassette tape. If you didn't know, these are the demos of the songs I lost when I got robbed in 2014. And as of tonight, for the first time ever, you can now listen or download at http://spose.bandcamp.com for whatever you think it's worth. And no i'm never putting it on Spotify or streaming service because i'm still self-conscious about these unfinished/un-mixed demos. So, this is it. Enjoy!!!
Wish there was a better recording of this RATM cover https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgU2V8eynMc
