This is a note I found from a good friend of mine. He sent this to me a few years ago along with a little book called The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. I was struggling to get this project started, and I thought this was a pretty awesome gesture from my buddy. “Never Stop Rocking”. Fuck yea! I love it. Why should anyone stop doing what makes them tick? Whatever it is…art, music, writing, fixing up old cars…whatever is, do it up and rock it out.
The book is a real easy read. That way you can read it quickly and get your ass in gear. Check it out. Maybe it’ll give you a little shot of motivation if you’re in need.
The video for See It From Your Side was featured on WashingtonExaminer.com today. Special thanks to Robert Fulton for writing the piece. The article includes a little commentary from me and Francisco Campos-Lopez, who wrote and directed the video.
Today marks the release of the video for See It From Your Side! Directed by Francisco Campos-Lopez, the video was filmed in one day at 2 locations – in Baltimore and at Dupont Underground in Washington, DC. Huge thanks to the cast and crew for making this all come together.
With that, here it is – the official music video for See It From Your Side:
Hey there team! So..I just fixed some issues with the website which was preventing me from uploading any images or linking anything. It really made posting a pain in the ass. Good news that’s all solved now. And it’s especially good news because now I can tell you that I’ll be playing at The Getaway in Washington DC on Friday, February 22nd. I’ll be doing an acoustic set with some other great DC acts – Matt Tarka, The French Admirals, Rachel Levitin, and Double Saginaw Familiarity.
Showtime’s 8 pm. It’s totally free and will be totally awesome. The Getaway is a few blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro Station on the corner of 14th and Meridian Place in NW. Come on out for a great night of DC music!
Our debut EP, Objects in Motion, is 1 year old today! Man, time flies. Thank you guys for your support over the past year. I’m planning on hitting the studio to work on recording some new tunes this year. In the meantime, go ahead and stream Objects in Motion below. Or download it on iTunes. Feel free to share.
What’s up guys? Hope the holidays were good to you all. Here’s wishing you all a happy 2013. In the world of SC, 2012 certainly had its ups and downs. That’s the way it goes in music. It’s hard to believe Objects in Motion was released almost a year ago. It’s crazy how quickly time can fly by. I’m looking forward to accomplishing a lot in this upcoming year. There’s a lot on the agenda for 2013.
First, I want to address the See It From Your Side video because I know a lot of you have been asking about it. Long story short, it’s held up in editing. I’ve seen a few cuts, and it’s gonna be great. It just needs to be finalized. So I appreciate your patience. We just don’t want to rush this thing. That being said, I plan to do a ton of videos this year. I’m thinking some more music videos. I’d like to film a few live sessions to share with you guys.
I’m also going to start taking this thing on the road. I’ve been working out a lot of acoustic arrangements of these songs and plan on doing a lot of unplugged performances. I’m working on pooling a few clowns to help me out with a backing band. But like with any well-oiled machine, it’s just a matter of putting together the right parts.
I plan on getting back into the studio this year, too. I’ve got a bunch of songs ready to go that I want to get started recording and putting towards a full length album. More to come on that, but I will be sure to share a lot of the behind the scenes stuff with you guys so you can get an inside look of the process.
So that’s the plan for 2013. Ambitious, I know. But hey – a lot can happen in a year…
