Canceled Show

Hey all, sorry for the late notice, but I had to cancel

my Concert Window show. Something important came

up that I have to take care of. I will try to do a Concert

Window show in the future. If I do, I’ll make sure to

let everyone know. Thank you for your understanding.

Concert Window Concert

Thanks to everyone who has downloaded my album

Blinds on Noisetrade. If you haven’t downloaded it

yet feel free to follow the link. Please leave a tip if you

feel so inclined. It would be greatly appreciated.

In other news, I will be doing a Concert Window concert

on June 17 at 8:00pm EDT. This is going to be an intimate

atmosphere, since I’ll most likely be playing from my living

room. It’s an interesting way to connect with viewers because

there is a message board that people can message me in real-

time. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I’m excited

to connect with people in this way. You can pay whatever you

want for the ticket as long as it’s $1.

In other, other news, we’re still finishing the LA EP. I’m really

excited for everyone to hear it. It’s a little more experimental

than my album, but it’s still my style of music.

Noisetrade

A few days ago I decided to upload my music to Noisetrade.

I’d rather have people buy my music, but I’m a nobody. I’m

not a house-hold name, I don’t have an established rapport,

and I haven’t proven myself to be a great songwriter yet. In

order for these things to occur, I might have to give my music

away for a period of time.

It feels unjust to put my heart and soul, my life, into my music

just to give it away when it’s all said and done. But like I said

above, I haven’t earned the right to charge people for my music.

Now that it’s available for free, I hope people will discover, listen,

and the rapport will start to be built over time.

EP Cover Art

One year ago today I released Blinds. Today I released the cover art

for my upcoming EP. It’s set to release sometime this summer but the

specific date is too be determined. Don’t fret, I’ll keep you posted as

things develop.

#Wordpainting

On January 1st, I posted about something new I was

going to try in 2015, which I titled “word painting.”

In the past, I primarily used journals to house my ideas,

chord progressions, lyrics, and sketches, but I thought

it would be fun to spice things up a bit. I found a brand

of paint swatches that were about the same size as the

pages in my journal.

Down the road, I would like to find a way to display

these in more of an artistic fashion. If anyone has an

idea, I would love to know.

Radio Show. House Show

Greetings. About a week and a half ago, I appeared on Indy In-Tune

Radio. It’s an internet, Indy-based, Independent music radio show.

I did an hour-long interview with Darrin (the host with the most), which

entailed 4 live tracks, lightning-round questioning, and some general

get-to-know-the-artist questions. It was a great time, and I hope to

connect more with Indy In-Tune. A link of the interview will be posted

shortly.

The same day, I had a house gig in Fountain Square, which is an up-and-

coming neighborhood in Indianapolis. The house gig was titled 3×5 House

Gig, because it contained three artists playing five new/ never-heard songs.

We probably had 50-60 people spread throughout three rooms of the house.

It was a lovely evening with local beer, wine from I don’t know where, fun

people, and sweet music.

I played three songs from my upcoming “LA” EP, and two from a potential

new album 🙂 Here are some photos from the day.

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.
