I can’t say how much I appreciate all of you in supporting me through my music. Thank you all. I’ll see you soon.
After 16 months of trips back and forth to Chicago, late nights and early mornings in the studio, and considerable amounts of time, energy, creative effort, and planning, the long and anticipated record has reached completion.
The Violet! EP will be available for sale on www.joehamgeri.com and iTunes on Tuesday, May 24. Digital downloads of the EP will be $7.99; physical copies will be $10. Also, be sure to watch the 7-minute version of The Making of The Violet! EP which will also be available to view.

Asymptote (ās’ĭm-tōt’) n. a line whose distance to a given curve tends to zero.
If you think of the line as the EP album I’ve been working on since January 2010 and the curve as the finished product (whose date is somewhere near in the future), you’ll start to get some insight as to why I am incorporating a favorite mathematical concept of mine into this post.
Recording an album is quite a project. For me, recording an album in a state other than the one I currently live in and doing that over the course of an entire year (and a few months), has been—to date—the biggest music project I’ve ever embarked. The Violet! EP, as of late, had me feeling like this whole project was an asymptote. The distance between being “close to finished” and “actually being finished” keeps getting smaller and smaller (or tending to zero), but the end never actually is reached. Frustration. Kicks. In.
Even though at this point I cannot announce a release date, I can say that the line will reach the curve very soon. And because I am getting more and more excited about the release of the album, I decided that I should probably release something for all of you to listen to—a sneak peek if you will, of a work in progress entitled: Violet!

Welcome! Thanks for taking some time to read my first post on Christmas Day.
Since January (2010), I’ve been recording an EP and it’s now coming closer to final completion. It’s been a crazy, yet exciting process since the start of this project and I have enjoyed much of it—from the big things to the little things that make up the whole. The entire recording has taken place in a studio located in a suburb of Chicago. Since I currently live in Indianapolis, IN, you might imagine the toll—figuratively and monetarily—that travel has taken on me.
That aside, I thoroughly enjoy the creative control that I have over this EP. Being able to track all the instruments (except the drums) while being present during the mixing stage has allowed me to channel a fuller expression of myself through my music. I am definitely looking forward to sharing more aspects of the EP with you leading up to its release.
Currently, the EP sits in the mixing stage. With a few weekends off due to Christmas, New Year’s, and weddings, the project has been forced into a sort of musical hibernation.
But in the sprit of Christmas and all things free, I offer you a CD. No, not a compact disc (CD) or certificate of deposit (CD) at your local bank. I’m giving you a FREE Christmas Download (CD) of my first release “Love, Love, Love.” You can download it at:
