Hi friends -

I got my new CDs back from the manufacturer much earlier than I was expecting, so I thought I'd make them available to my email list now. If you would like one (or more!) delivered by Xmas - email me this week. I'll send you a paypal request and you tell me the address you want me to send it to. Let me know if you'd like a copy signed and/or personalized and I'm happy to do it. 


The price is $15 per cd and that will include shipping. Just reply to this email with your mailing address and the email address you want to use for paypal.


In the meantime - here is a review that an early receiver of the CD posted to my facebook page:


 I have listened to this CD on heavy rotation the last few days. And if you are reading this post from Jon, I am pretty sure that you are going to want it! It has a very different, and more sophisticated, sound than any of the previous albums. There's an impressive variety of styles and arrangements -- from his signature raw acoustic blues to polished contemporary Americana -- including a heart-fluttering duet with Lizzy Ross. And all the tracks, of course, are bathed in layers of Jon's gorgeous acoustic and/or electric guitar stylings. The album is called "Ordinary Cats," but we know the artist is no ordinary cat!  -- Wayne Norman, Durham, NC


Happy holidays everyone!

"From Durham, NC, Jon produces a bubbling, slow-cooked folk-blues jam that's irresistible. "  Trent River Coffee Company, New Bern/Craven County Convention & Visitors Center

"He is a master blues guitarist, which is a distinction you may not fully appreciate until you see the amount of finger acrobatics that go into coaxing those sounds from an acoustic guitar...Shain's lyrics are based on simple words and simple ideas that add up to common stories with uncommon depth."  Justin Shatwell, Yankee Magazine

"The fine North Carolina singer-songwriter has hella acoustic guitar chops marinated in swing, ragtime, and Piedmont blues. A former improv-rocker with the band Flying Mice, Shain delivers a wonderful set of vintage-sounding tunes inspired by the new recessionary South on his latest album, Times Right Now; it also includes chestnuts such as "Careless Love" and more than a hint of Randy Newman."  Richard Gehr, Village Voice
