A lot is happening...here's what's up.

Last year, my family and I bought a house. Said house has an awesome basement, which soon after moving in became an awesome studio space. Here is a picture. - - - - >

Yeah, we painted it ourselves. It was hyper ambitious and took a lot of hours. One wall is really, REALLY purple. I plan on doing a video walkthrough of it soon. After carpet.

So, music. It's been 18 months since the release of "The Midwest Is Still Dreaming", and most of my time in that interim was consumed by adult stuff. I turned 30. Then 31. 

About 6 months ago (it might have been 9 months, it could have been 4, I don't do time folks), Jack Essenburg came over and we started writing. Jack was the drummer of Paradigm, the guitarist/songwriter in Black Canvas, and he also played guitar for me at my album release show. The most important fact is that he's my longest running musical compatriot, although we haven't worked together in years. 

Now we are. Not only that, but we have a new band name. It's BLUE SUN CIRCUS. And we have an entire album written and demoed out. < - - - - Here's a picture of Jack.  

I do have a few songs that I've been working on for my next solo release, and I'm happy with the direction. I also have another side project I'm doing, but more on that later. Thanks for reading this far. That probably means you've listened to my music, and that's swell. I'm going to go wait for season 3 of Stranger Things to come out. Might be a while.

What happened to PHYSICAL FORM?

You might have noticed that my 2014 E.P. Physical Form is no longer available to be streamed here or anywhere else online. Here's why:

When I put out the E.P., I seriously rushed the process. I didn't take my time doing good takes, I made bad mixing decisions, and I should have cut a song or two that I didn't love. To put it bluntly, I shouldn't have released it when I did. I wasn't proud of it.

That said, I think that a few of the songs on Physical Form have great things about them and I'd like to remake them, giving them the time and attention that I should have the first time around. 

So, sometime next year maybe, you will see Physical Form again. Thanks to those of you who bought it and downloaded it while it was available.

Re-design, new photos, and a new single.

Look around folks, the times, they are a-changing. I just released "What I want," the first single off of "THE MIDWEST IS STILL DREAMING." It sounds pretty swell.

My good friend and photographer extraordinaire Robyn Birkey did a photo session for me a couple months back, and some of those new shots are viewable on the media page. ROBIRKEY.com

As you can obviously see, the site layout has changed a bit. Go look around.

 

I like you a lot.
