New Tune: It’s You

I decided to write this one on the new baritone uke as an excuse to noodle around with it and get used to it. Ultimately, this song pretty much exists because I had two weird encounters in the same week. This happens to all of us sometimes, I think – where we have a totally […]

New Tune: Wake Up Dreaming

I have some steampunkery to talk to you about from this year’s festival, but I haven’t taken the pics off of my camera yet, so I’ll have to get back to that later (soon…ish), but in the meanwhile, I’ve been roughing up a new tune. Been debating on calling it ‘Wake up Dreaming’ or ‘Masquerade’, […]

New Tune: Mexico

You might construe this one as political if you squint, given our current political landscape in the US, but actually it’s just sort of a coincidence that this one ended up being called ‘Mexico’. True story. This morning at about 9:30, I’m at work and my dad calls. Now, I’m pretty firm about people not […]

New Tune: In This Photograph

Well, I decided to use the song I finished writing earlier this week to give Audio Evolution a full test drive, and decided to use my phone to do it. (Note: when recording on your phone, turn off app notifications, or at least wear headphones. I did not do this when recording the guitar and, […]

Hurricanes (Video)

Some minor lyrical edits since the last time, but nothing significant. I fixed some grammatical quirks (in the last version I switched between “you” and “he” a few times. I changed them all to “he” in order to be consistent.), and I made some edits to one of the last verses that wasn’t flowing quite […]

Hurricanes (First run through)

Well, here ya go guys – my first ever guitar song, in all it’s imperfectly played glory. Thank my weirdo muse for this one. Hurricanes We’ve been talking in torrents for hours I can’t hear you over all this rain. Summer storms just water all the flowers, but all I ever see are hurricanes.   […]

Stone Throw (Video) and my awesome new DIY haircut (which I have decided to count as ‘art’)

So, really off the cuff, I decided to record a video for Stone Throw today. I mucked up a few places, but I’ve sort of learned that most people only actually notice if I tell them. So – ahem – I totally played it flawlessly, I mean obviously. (Don’t pay attention to that man behind the […]

New Song: It’s a Good Thing I’m a Gamer (Because you Make me Want to Kick someone in the head)

This was another sort of unplanned bit of crazy. I was supposed to go to an event tomorrow in which I needed some sort of heartbreaky or lovesick thing to perform. Well, the event has been postponed due mostly to a case of the ‘fuck it’s cold!’s, but the song has been written anyway, so […]
