Performances

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you might have heard

me announce a couple events coming up on Saturday, March 14th.

I’ll be appearing on Indy In-Tune radio at 1:30PM (EST) and have

a 3×5 House Gig at 7:00PM.

The radio show will consist of an interview and performance where

I’ll play 4 tracks in the studio. The house gig consists of 3 artists

performing 5 songs for the first time, hence the name 3×5 House Gig.

I haven’t played a show for 2 or 3 months, so I’m excited to perform

twice in one day.

Instafun with Instagram

I don’t post much on social media compared to other 26 year olds,

but lately I’ve posted a few things on Instagram that I’ve enjoyed.

First was the Salvador Dali inspired self-portrait that I titled Salivador

Dali. Second was the guitar video I titled Footloose. My most recent

was today, when I decided to share a sliver of my rendition of Amazing

Grace I came up with about 3 or 4 years ago. I’m sure there will be more

to come in the future. For now, I’ve added a link to my Instagram page,

so you can follow.

Studio Update

Just a quick update, I’m back in the studio, and this time

with the help and sound engineering of Adrian Pumphrey.

The acoustic guitar tracks are done. Vocals are next on the

list. Female vocals by Rebekah Osborn after that, followed

by the accessory instruments. While all this is happening

my dude, John “the Middle Man” Gilpin, will be crafting the

beats.

That’s all for now, but I hope to post more about my time

in the studio. Thanks.

Not Yet

The last installment of the Blinds miniseries comes

from the last song of the album.

No matter what your beliefs are on life, death,

spirituality, etc., we all want peace. We all want

harmony in our lives. We long to be loved, we long

for justice, and we long for wholeness. Basically,

we long for everything that’s wrong to be made right.

Piano Tuner

The miniseries is coming to a close. This is one of the

last entries. This song was inspired during a piano tuning.

I watch for quite some time as the tuner carefully did his

work. It was mundane, and at the same time beautiful. I

watched and listened as the man loosened and tightened

every string meticulously in order to bring them back to their

original state and sound.

I Have Longed

The end is drawing near on the Blinds miniseries,

but it has been fun to shed some light, even if it’s

only a candles-worth, on these songs. This is

inspired by the song For a Place. I believe it was

the first song I wrote once I moved to Indy. I had

no plans to leave Bloomington, but the good that

has come from it is unexplainable. For one thing,

I have a wife now. I think moving was the right decision.

Concrete

I was driving home to Indy from my hometown,

when the first spark flew. As I merged to one of

the exits, I saw the criss-crossing interstates at

a favorable angle. The imagery was reminiscent

of spiderwebs, which was the inspiration for the

first verse of Concrete.

This photo isn’t a photo of what I saw, but

somewhat paints the picture I wanted to paint

with my words.

Four Panes

The sixth installment of the miniseries is a little

different than the past few. I didn’t do this painting,

but it was the inspiration for the song, Four Panes.

My friend Nathan sent me a link to a Pinterest board

full of art, and I chose this one. It was probably the

least likely to be used. I mean look at it. It’s a painting

of old window panes. The painting and I had a staring

contest, and honestly, I think I won because I got what

I wanted from it. A song. As my mind went blank from

staring too long, it began to fill with a story. One that

was partially inspired by the home I grew up in, and

partially a made up tale. Even the made up parts

held truth within my own heart though. Four Panes

is one of my personal favorites from the album.

I’m on a Boat

I think this is the fifth installment of the miniseries.

I’m starting to lose track. This is taken from the

second verse of Foulest Fleet from Blinds.

Naughty Nautical!

Habit

Here is the fourth installment in the miniseries. I never

intended to create a miniseries, but that’s kind of what

has happened. This is taken from the first verse of Habit

from Blinds. Enjoy.
