On a strange whim, I recently became interested in typewriters. When I explained this to my Grandmother she replied “I knew I kept this thing for a reason!” and went on to give me her early 60′s Royal Aristocrat typewriter. It’s the first time ever that I have written lyrics before writing music, and I believe I’ve fallen in love. Check it out below.
I’m playing the Oakdale Songwriter Slam hosted by Charles Tyler Rogers of The Airlings. At this special slam, fellow Airlings bassist Ricardo Friaz will be releasing his debut CD for his solo project Viva Joaquin! Also Alida McKeon and Heaven Burtch will be there. It’s going to be a good one. Click on the poster to view show details, or visit the facebook event.
The holidays are over, and that can only mean one thing: I’m not a slave to retail anymore (not entirely anyway). I’m playing Grizzly Rock on the 4th of January with Indian Runner and Dandelion Massacre. Thus far this is one of my favorite places to play, or spectate for that matter. The bands are great and the crowd is cool and Quote Your Pulse is a nifty little outfit, so come out and take in the evening. It’s better than your couch. And I’m a fellow hermit. Trust me. Show’s at 8:30. Here’s the Facebook Event.
Grandfather clock is being featured in the Cameron Hughes film California Dream 3D. It’s out tomorrow! More information can be found here: California Dream 3D Website.
Quote Your Pulse Records is releasing a cover compilation on Halloween and my cover of The National’s “You’ve Done It Again, Virginia” will be on that compilation. To find out more about it visit the link below:
Here’s a couple photos that I’ve got from Thursday’s show.
If you missed us at the Ramble, the airlings and I are playing together again at Grizzly Rock on the 28th. They really put on a hell of a show, so whether or not you’re excited to see me play, come see the Airlings.
September’s here and so are two more shows.
There you have them.
See you there!
Here are the posters:
