Are You Dead?
Are You Dead?
As it turns out, whether for better or worse, I’m still very much alive and kicking. While I’m not necessarily “kicking” anything in particular, as that probably wouldn’t really help me move forward in my personal endeavors, I’m still “kicking” nonetheless.
Guess what folks!?!? I was laid off from my job! I would like to personally thank all those involved as it literally was all I wanted for Christmas. I secretly asked Santa to please end the cubicle madness and he did just that so…thanks Santa. You truly are a misunderstood fat elf type creature whom I admire. You also have quite an admirable beard and, I for one appreciate your chubby beardy goodness.
Aside from all that stupidness, I was laid off and what that means is that I’m working harder than ever. While that may sound slightly ironic considering I have no “job” please understand that it simply means I’m actually working harder on things that matter now. I’m finally back to finishing up some tracks for my new album as well as tracks for my two other music projects “Vagus Nerve” and “Cosm”.
Just to prove to you that I am indeed hard at work I’ve included some samples of these projects for your listening pleasure. Just don’t be too harsh with your comments as these are indeed “rough” and “works in progress” at the moment.
I would like to personally apologize for how long it’s taken me to get back up and running with my original music but I’ve had a lot of collaborative project opportunities as well as personal “life related” set backs along the way. Also note that writing, playing, recording and mixing all of your own music takes a great deal of time and effort and isn’t really comparable to a band going to a studio and “making a record”.
I’d also like to sincerely thank you all for your ongoing support, emails and comments. It seriously helps me more than you’ll ever know to read such kind words from all over the world encouraging me to keep moving forward and doing what I do. Thanks so much.
This first track is something I wrote with Doc Coyle for our band Vagus Nerve. If you enjoy the heavier side of my music you might enjoy this.
The second clip is from a song I wrote with Aden Oxenreider for our band called “Cosm”. If you like my softer more “epic” side…that’s this.
The third is (finally) one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. It’s one of the first I’m currently finishing now for my new Phyllotaxis album entitled “The Woe of the Crow and His Poison Tree”. The song is called “Colostrum”.
