WHAT'S GOING ON
1/2/17: Happy New Year! I've continued to roll with the Super Demos project and have two new ones to share. One is a bit of a creative rallying cry to encourage myself (and hopefully others!) to keep making art in the face of heavy world events, and the other is a nerdy love song. Watch/listen below and download all tracks for free here!
SHE READS VONNEGUT
WRITE A FUCKING SONG
12/1/16: The creative juices have been flowing lately and I've written a few new songs, so I recorded a couple "Super Demos" and have posted them to the 'tubes. I have a few more tunes in the works and am hoping to eventually record these with other musicians, but wanted to push these out to get a little momentum going so I can keep this project rolling! Expect some throwbacks to my days as a punk ska kid. Fans of my old bands Beauty School Dropouts and Donkey Punch, these are for you! Watch below or download all tracks for free here!
