Coconuts Don’t Fall Far From the Tree

I made an album with my friends Nick and Taes! (Splash’N Boots)

We rented a ton of gear for a month, set it all up in their house. I put microphones in front of them. We had many friends come visit and play. A lot of laughter, “a few hours” polishing, and here is the result. This is my first time working as producer of an album, and I’m pleased with what we made. Have a listen.

I recognize that I have yet to comment here about the most massive change in my life in 2012. We had a little girl. That was way back in March, which makes her 7 and a fraction months old now. I was testing out a Flip video camera that I borrowed, and I made this little video.

She’s growing up: washing her own tongue now.

Louis CK vs Uniform Motion

While browsing Twitter, I often find myself opening several tabs of videos, bands, soundcloud pages, etc. And then I work my way through them. I just sat through a hilarious juxtaposition of 2 different pieces playing simultaneously. I’d like to try to recreate this moment for you now.

First, the soundtrack

I Was Crushed by a Forty-Foot man by Uniform Motion

Now, the visuals

[Note: I don't think Soundcloud renders in Google Reader, so you might have to hit ye old "v". And, I think virtually 98% of my friends who read this site, are reading this in Reader. Hence.... etc.]

Echo Echo – Catch



Dear Friends

I am proud to announce that today I released my first thing. Ever. I have been making music for over 22 years. And I have been recording music in recording studios for 12 years. And this is the first finished release. Kind of a big deal.

If an embedded player didn’t show up in your feed, go here to have a listen, and download if you like. Echo Echo – Catch.

Echo Echo is a project I have been working on with Andrea Caswell for over two years now. Catch is a 4 song EP released as a free digital download. It’s kind of a “Hi, my name is…” gesture. We have several more songs in the pike for a full album to be released in 2012.

If you like what you hear, please send it along to anyone you think may be interested.
