a video a week. a song a week.

So I took a look back at the last 10 years and realized that I’ve only released maybe 30 songs. On one hand I’m happy that I’ve had the opportunity to create this music, collaborate with others and even just have some gear in this small bedroom studio. On the other hand, 30 songs in 10 years is only 3 songs a year. That’s pretty pathetic. Not that it’s necessary to be…    read more

State Shirt    

Last week I recorded the new song “Crush”. Hope you like it. Crush – DOWNLOAD – Lyrics This week I gave myself the challenge of creating a music video in 7 days. Budget was $0. The shopping cart was left on my street and the paper was from old fashion and art magazines. Ok I guess there was a little expense because I bought Dragon stop motion animation software (which is awesome…    read more

i was inspired by jack conte’s video songs and wanted to put together one of my own. i’m following his rules that he uses for his videos: “1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice). 2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).” hope you like it. the song is also on songfight right now. head on over to listen…    read more

I love derivative works! And here are some derivative works that have been created recently that are very good. All of these remixes of State Shirt songs are courtesy of the remixers on ccMixter. Solid from first note to last. “This is on the Stairs” by Neurowaxx is chosen as ccMixter Editor’s Pick. A mashup of my song “This is Old” and “Passing on the Stairs” by The Starry Tides.

Electronic “Disappointed” cover

State Shirt    

I just finished recording a cover of Electronic’s “Disappointed”. I had never even heard the original song until about a month ago. Hell I had never even heard of the band. But there was something really good at the core of this song and I wanted to try a version of my own. In case you also didn’t know, Electronic were an “alternative dance group formed by New Order singer and guitarist…    read more 

Spec Miata Racing at Buttonwillow.

State Shirt    

So I’m pretty lucky to be able to go racing (in my spec miata) every once in a while. I’m not that great at it but it’s one of the most fun things I’ve ever done. This particular video is a couple months old… it’s of my race at Buttonwillow Raceway back in April. My first race on a real racing license, not just a rookie permit. I spun out during the…    read more
