New Updates on “The Other Way: Part One”
“The Other Way” is finally here…from the first drops of recording just before an attempted one-off concert at a nationwide flash mob event on May 4, 2013 to the release of it’s full-length first half on December 17th, 2017!
Please visit CDBaby for a healthy helping of liner notes and instant free listening before purchasing. There is also a limited-time website solely dedicated to the album at www.jeffreydiceramusic.hearnow.com You can also purchase or stream the album on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play, and, I believe every other online entity. Thank you all so much and hope you all have fun listening!
A full set of stories and lyrics are fondly forthcoming, and as you might imagine, the stories are rather rich and fun to tell.
The music pays creative tribute to musical heroes of mine such as The Blues Magoos, Michael Jackson, Yes, and composers Jack Nitchze and John Philip Sousa. The fun that went into trying to dive into their styles just makes me want to go record right now!
The recordings that went down also pay tribute to the humanity and the ever-flowing ebb and flow of organic media — such as the cassette tape. Many kinds, obscure and popular, cheap and expensive, we’re used on this album, which karmatically followed the words and music. Of course, the second album, hopefully ready by next fall, will have a whole new set of inspirations and sounds, so there’s always something to explore!
The new music video for “A Reason to Walk” has now been launched on YouTube and Facebook!! This video was created to help spread Lyme Awareness and provide more visual support to those going through the ills of Lyme and all other associated diseases — tick-borne or not. The real work supporting our Lyme community has begun. Multiple organizations have already begun to work together and I’m so happy — and lucky — to be a part of it.
I’m also hard at work making plans for a release party performance/ listening event somewhere in central CT. Like always, we have to take everything one day at a time, but everything’s stirring right now, so please watch closely and do everything you can to spread the word!
“Silent Soundtrack,” my new album which inspired the musical that took place in Cambria, is available online, and a direct supporter of the Spirit of Harmony Foundation, Todd Rundgren’s new organization supporting music education for youth throughout the nation.
You can buy the album on Amazon, CDBaby, iTunes, and Google to help get its message out on more popular platforms, or you can stream it on Spotify and Rdio, or play individual tracks on Soundcloud and Reverbnation. Either way, you’re keeping a once hidden message and personal crusade alive, which mainly supports my music teacher and her legacy as a prominent music teacher and educational pioneer. The album also gives voice to those who’ve lost jobs that they otherwise were born to do, as well as other things that go unspoken for.

A Thread of Hope
“A Thread of Hope” is like a dramatic mini-series set to music of all styles, including the acclaimed pop finale, “Javier’s Theme.” There is an underlying hope through every story as you listen. Along with Stories and Lyrics (link) you can also listen to special bonus tracks, and an alternate “epic” version of “Javier’s Theme.” It is quite a journey either way!
