Roots of Nervousness

Uncategorized | January 27th, 2013

I’m specifically speaking about the process of a new song…from the moment you first jot the lines of a few lyrics down on paper to the moment where you take it live to a room full of strangers, and all the nerves that encompass it. When I first wrote the song Yellow Monarch, it took me years until it finally saw the light of day, let alone a stage. I first performed it alone in my living room with a shitty web cam, then posted it on YouTube. Then when I finally performed it for the first time this last… Continue Reading →

More Awesomesauce!

Uncategorized | January 27th, 2013

So just got Brooklyn, NY locked in…Portland is about locked in too. Stoked for this tour. I’m really looking forward to meeting folks I’ve been talking with online for years but never had any face time with, and looking forward to reconnecting with friends I’ve met on the road prior and then some. Been listening to Aaron Baca’s band, Dead Remedy, from Portland. They are fucking awesome! I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Aaron at the Red Room one night for one of his solo gigs, but have never heard his band before. I’m currently working on… Continue Reading →

New Dates Added

Uncategorized | January 27th, 2013

Boston, MA & Joplin, MO have been added to the list of dates Jeff and I will be hitting starting in April. Shit’s hard work, but rewarding when you get that yes after all the ignored emails. lol I posted a couple videos up on the youtube from my cd release show that took place on the 19th. And I’m waiting for cd baby to process my album so it will be available to download digitally. Once that clears, I will be donating 50% off all proceeds to my favorite charity. Due to legal reasons, I’m not allowed to say… Continue Reading →

Focus is important…especially when it’s super easy to get distracted. I make so many lists, it’s ridiculous. I think the sticky notes was quite possibly the best product that came attached to windows 7. It makes it easy for me to keep track of what’s important, and then when I’m done, it’s erased from my desktop forever. Much more efficient than a million little pieces of paper strewn about the house to keep track of. Played a few local shows here recently…kinda weird to play a bunch in Washington, but it felt good too. Very eager to leave again. Got… Continue Reading →

What Is My Message?

Uncategorized | January 23rd, 2013

Be who you are, however you are. Cut the crap, cut the bullshit, cut what you think others expect you to be, and just be you. I believe if everyone could just be who they are, however they are, it would be a lot easier to find compatible friends and relationships that work. Your life would be more fulfilling because you are no longer wasting all that time and energy creating and maintaining a facade. At the same time, it’s important to let others be how they are as well.

Fuckin’ Weird

Uncategorized | December 7th, 2012

Intimacy is fuckin’ weird. Not bad, just weird. Caring is weird too, and so are relationships. Everything you do affects other people, but when you give a shit how your actions will effect others, it adds a whole new dynamic to the picture. At which point is it okay to just throw all your eggs in one basket, and say, “okay, we’re going to do this no matter the outcome, and when the seas get rough, we’ll work together through it until the calm of the storm?” Some people do that every time they enter into a relationship, they just… Continue Reading →

Tear Drops in Motion

Uncategorized | December 5th, 2012

So last night, Todd and I got together and brainstormed plans for the Tear Drop trailer we’ll be building. For those of you who do not know what a teardrop trailer is, here ya go… The open hatch you see on the back is the kitchen area, while the rest of it is sleeping/living quarters. Mine will not be nearly as shiny or elaborate as the two posted here, as I’m a very bare bones and practical person when it comes to traveling.  Due to the size of me and my touring companion, we’re going to need as much leg… Continue Reading →

Customize Everything

Uncategorized | December 2nd, 2012

So I’ve been thinking a lot about a million things here lately as I’m preparing for the tour in April. Due to my limited funds, it’s forcing me to be a bit more creative with my options. Instead of looking at being broke as a bad thing, I’m taking it on as a challenge of what I can come up with that suits me as far as merch goes. My project is unique. My voice is weird in that I don’t really sound like anybody, and I play solo with an acoustic bass. I also live inside my own reality,… Continue Reading →

Go big, or go home.

Uncategorized | December 1st, 2012

So I’ve been taking in a lot of Seth Godin for the last year. He’s a marketing guru a good friend turned me on to about a year ago. Some of his knowledge doesn’t really apply to my life, but a lot of it does. His general outlook on life is awesome. A reoccurring theme in his blogs that I subscribe to are that it’s okay to fail…not only is it okay, it’s necessary in order to learn from your mistakes, grow, and become amazing. I’ve been taking this to heart a lot more these days, and embracing the odds… Continue Reading →
