**DECEMBER NEWS**

Every day, every night, moving along, making progress. SLEEPWALKER is being printed, and the finished product will be in my hands by the very end of 2009. On January 6th, 2010, on Winged Disk Records, it will be unleashed upon the world. My new band will consist of Joseph Patti on bass, Chris Spikoski on drums, Brittany Lundberg on harmonies and piano, and my brother Ken Korb on electric guitar, plus special guests for the big release show at the Patchogue Theatre. I'll be opening the show with a solo acoustic set featuring a handful of my newest songs, followed by the main event- SLEEPWALKER, in its entirety, performed full scale, down to all the dirty details. Upon purchasing the CD at this show, you'll get a free limited edition hand-made booklet of all the song lyrics! My new website, www.MichaelKorbMusic.com is under construction and gearing up for a proper launch. Dave Schuman, a brilliant film-maker, has created a beautiful video for my song "Circles," which can be seen here: http://vimeo.com/8228455 I keep thinking- maybe tonight I'll get some rest ... but no. I'm done running in circles. It's a new day, and I'll wait no more.
