Anyone Who’s Anyone #OCTA20 Cover Contest

June 20th, 2016 · Uncategorized

One of my favorite bands of all time was having a cover contest for the 20th anniversary of one of their albums, and I got peer-pressured into doing it last minute. I’m glad I faced up and didn’t take the bench on this one. This one’s for all the Sloan fans out there!

Self Help Rockstar Show Podcast

June 13th, 2016 · Uncategorized

One of my songs was featured on a podcast! Episode #179 of the Self Help Rockstar Show features an in depth look at “The Things She Do” by host Barry Mangione. This podcast is unique because it features music, interviews, and self-help advice from a host that used to suffer from alcohol abuse, depression, and bankruptcy before he turned his life around. A pretty great message to put out into world if you ask me, and I’m honored Barry found something positive in my music enough to talk about it.

Free to listen/download on iTunes and Stitcher, or stream it below!

Bad and Ugly, but Some Good Too.

January 4th, 2016 · Uncategorized

Had a mini nervous breakdown in the studio last night. I had been struggling ALL NIGHT to get this mix right, and it wasn’t working…

But I just kept working anyway. I eventually took a break to listen to THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY soundtrack for inspiration. That thing is gorgeous. So after that, I felt inspired. Plus, there was a picture of Clint Eastwood on it. It’s hard to feel weak while looking at him.

I powered through, tried a few different approaches, and in the end I ended up with something I’m VERY happy with. Dare I say… proud of! I ended up listening to the song over and over because it sounded SO GOOD. I can’t wait to finish and show you guys all the hard work I’ve been putting into this thing.

Anyway, I guess what I’m saying is, don’t give up on the things that you love. If you want it bad enough, you will find a way.
