Creative roadblock? Simplify. Add deadline. Then Fight!

May 1, 2014    
State Shirt    

When you’re inspired to create something, and there is some mental roadblock keeping you from executing on your inspiration, I’ve always found it’s helpful to simplify. Reduce the number of options to you. Force yourself to create something with just a handful of tools. Or just one tool. Just one color. One instrument. One theme. And it’s helpful to have a unmovable deadline, forcing you to make creative decisions quickly. Looking back,…    read more

I’ve realized my life travels on the path of a sine wave. I’m once again making my way out of the trough and heading up towards the crest. Finally knocking some musical ideas out of my head and carefully arranging them into ones and zeros. I’m incredibly excited about this album. These songs have come to me easier than anything else I have written. Looking forward to being able to share them…    read more 

On Top of a Hill – live looping improv / demo

March 10, 2014    
State Shirt    

Here’s a song that I’d consider, using music industry vernacular, a “demo”. I wanted to start out with a completely ridiculous sound and try to turn it into a song. This is the result. Maybe this will turn into an album track, I’m not sure yet. Hope you enjoy checking out this work in progress. 🙂 buy steal Gear list if you’re interested: Circular Labs Mobius looping software on my Macbook Pro….    read more

Woke up this morning and had the urge to do some improvisation. Here’s a live looping improv that I just recorded. Beatboxing, distortion, and weird vocals. Everything was recorded live, nothing pre-recorded. Music gear nerds: There is a gear list below if you’re interested. 🙂 Using Circular Labs Mobius looping software on a Macbook Pro.

Strymon BigSky, TimeLine, and Mobius demo video songs

So as some of you may know, I’m the marketing guy over at Strymon, and I write and perform many of the audio clips for Strymon products, including writing the music for the BigSky, TimeLine, and Mobius demo videos. A bunch of people have asked me the names of these songs and if they can download them. Well, I guess the songs don’t really have names. 🙂 But since you asked, you…    read more 

Looping Tips and Techniques

I recently had the opportunity to contribute an article for Premier Guitar magazine. The topic? Something very dear to my heart—looping tips and techniques! “If you want to take your looping from four-bar bedroom jams to a performance environment, start thinking of your looper as an instrument, not an effect. Creating engaging loop performances can require the same type of effort that you put into learning guitar. Really get to know your…    read more

Life had gotten a little crappy there for a bit. Really didn’t record any music in the last 8 months. Finally moved into a new place and have the studio set up again.
