    The Two-Headed Monster vinyl is here

    The last two weeks has been such a blur of traveling to the farthest corners of the country–Florida and Oregon–that I almost forgot to mention that the vinyl LPs for Two-Headed Monster are back from the pressing plant. I picked these up right before I headed to Oregon for my show in Eugene this past weekend but, because I was in such a rush, I didn’t even get to open up any of the boxes. Today, I got to check them out and they look real dope. From the artwork to the clear vinyl, these joints look crispy!

    The Power of Community

    I’ve been in Orlando for the last week, staying with my good friends the Solillaquists of Sound. For the last seven years, I’ve been coming down here multiple times a year; either playing a show, hanging with friends, working on some project, or doing what I’m doing this time around–shooting music videos.

    Those who know me understand how active I am when it comes to getting things done, and while I can take some of the credit for my work ethic, I can’t take all the credit for what actually gets done. The truth, is that I wouldn’t be able to do nearly as much without the help of the community.

    The Wait is Over: I Have a New Album For You

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been over two years since I’ve released a full-length solo album, but it’s true. The year 2016 was all about the Vigilante Genesis project, which was only a seven-song EP (not a full-length album) and the year 2017 was all about the King No Crown Movie.  Even though I take filmmaking very seriously–it’s nearly impossible to be decent if you don’t–I never lost any of the love I had for making music.  So I never stopped working on music during that time.  Now I finally have something new that I feel really proud to share with you.
