CLASSIC MERCH, NOW WITH CUSTOM FUN - JONAHMATRANGA.THREADLESS.COM
Hi, sweet & strange world. I’ve been wondering for a while how I might resurrect some of my favorite merch designs from over the years. I had this dream of making different runs of shirts for little tours this year, bring a different one out every time. The world had other plans, and like so many millions of other people, my year and career are now facing lots of unexpected questions. Waves of fear and sadness wash over me regularly. I’m doing my best to breathe through, take care of myself so I can be of service to others, and keep creating. I’ve always loved the idea of limitations leading to new ideas. I’ve canceled my plane tickets & touring plans, and I’m focused on all the other ways we can stay connected, including giving some extra attention to the good ol’ Yard Sale. I dug through all my old art files, and figure out a way to have these designs on all sorts of clothing along with all sorts of other neat stuff. It’s resulted in a sweet lil store filled with possibility. To celebrate the grand opening, everything is gettin a discount for the rest of May. There are lotsa designs from all the bands up there now. Check it out, spread the word, get some fun stuff, help keep me going. Thx forever. I’ll be adding more designs & items as we go, and as always, I look fwd to yr ideas. Speaking of ideas, any sweet creatures who’ve signed up for jonahmatranga.com/ideas at the ‘get everything free’ level, let me know what you like in the new shop, and we’ll sort it out. The IDEAS community as a whole means even more to me right now. If you aren’t part of it yet, hope to see you there. Lotsa goodness going on there. I’m building a massive sound & vision library of stuff that will never be on the streaming services, and I should have a big new chunk up next week. Oh, and for anyone who wants vinyl, books, or handmade stuff, that's all still happily happening, of course.
Through all of this, the center of my creative heart is where it’s always been: working on new music. It’s helping me through, and I hope it’ll help you. I’m taking my time with it and working across the miles with some wildly talented friends to make something more hifi and expansive than I have in a minute. Loud stuff, soft stuff, everything in between. Like I said, I want to do all I can to connect across the satellites -- and soon, we’ll be together again, singing & smiling.
