1 track album
Head over to my bandcamp page and you can download a limited acoustic version of a new song called “Slow Bones.” Each download includes a digital booklet with lyrics.
i’m one of those annoying people who’s always like “omg i know that actor from somewhere omg i recognize them whAT WERE THEY IN” when watching tv shows/movies who then proceeds to look it up on their phone and inform everyone that said actor was an extra in an episode of some stupid 90s sitcom once
“Feed my sheep…feed my sheep…feed my sheep.” The husband and wife duo sang those words over one of the silliest/simplest melodies I had ever heard. I sat next to my usual youth group friends like I did every Sunday morning and we all tried not to laugh. This 70-something southern gospel troupe was…
“I don’t want to waste your time with music you don’t need.”
That is the opening line of Over the Rhine’s album “Trumpet Child.” Most of their lyrics resonate with me on a regular basis, but something about that line really hit home. Am I wasting your time? Am I wasting my time? Do you need this?…
SPICE ME UP BABY
This looks amazing because I love pepper
I’m excited to finally be able to say, Long Road Backwards is available now! We had some technical difficulties and roadblocks trying to release this gem, including Hurricane Sandy. But alas, the music is out there and ready for your ears.
This album is a bit scary for me. Only one of the nine songs was written recently. The rest are old forgotten demos and experiments. They never made it on to a studio album either because the emotion was still too raw at the moment, or they were just too weird. People have been asking for me to release an album like this for a while since they’ve heard some of the songs live and had no place to purchase them. I plan on releasing some of the stories behind these songs in the days ahead to give you a little more insight on why they were written and what they mean to me today. In the meantime, just listen and relate to them however you heart finds most natural. Don’t filter them through any preconceived idea of what they were for me, that doesn’t matter. These are for you.
Take the long road backwards to something beautiful you lost.
A few months back, I met Nicholas Hammond, the actor who played Spider-Man in the late 70s (he was also Friedrich Von Trapp in The Sound of Music, and the quarterback who broke Marcia Brady’s nose on The Brady Bunch). I had him sign this photo in two different color Sharpies and it was probably my favorite autograph until it was pointed out that it looks like Spidey’s holding two markers in the photo and is super happy about his two markers and I can’t unsee it and now it’s just my favorite thing, period.
I don’t think I can unsee Friedrich Von Trappe as spidey…
