So, my wonderful friend and colleague, Brandon Jack Acker, and I have been recording a new album of my original material. I've put up some demo tracks on the sight as a fun little teaser. Please look for it coming out next year (projected Spring of 2017). Also, I'll be doing the inevitable kickstarter soon. So, please look for that and consider donating. It will be well worth, I promise!
So, my wonderful friend Daria Melnikova made a fantastic music video for me for my original song, "Loverboy for Louisa". We recently had a video premiere where I played a live along with a live performance along with the video (a la Philip Glass style). If you've never done that before, I highly recommend it! ;) Please check out the video along with videos of my live songs at Daria's youtube channel below at the related link.
P.S. Check out all the other wonderful artists on there such as Ryan de Ryke, Brandon Acker, and one of my side projects, Spears and Gears.
