Splintered Mind is my hard rock project with Phil Bright. It's quite a bit different than my solo output and lets me explore my more rockin' side. Here's a teaser for our first single which is set to be released on March 1st 2019

Latest News

So Much News! 

So much to tell. I've been a busy bee since my last update but i'll try to be concise. First things first, my hard rock project SPLINTERED MIND is finally puttting out our first single which is appropriately titled Starting Now. It will be available via most of the usual spots i.e. Spotify, Apple Music, Itunes, Amazon music etc. Click the logo to the right to pre-save on Spotify and be entered to win a FREE T-SHIRT or click here to pre-order on Amazon.  We've also got our own website at SplinteredMindMusic.com where you can get our latest news, stream music, or buy merch. Please make a visit.

 

In other news, my sweetie and I tied the knot last week! We went to sunny Florida for a beautiful and intimate beach wedding. Unfortunately mother nature had other plans and dropped a few tons of water on us on the day of our nuptials. Though we had to move it inside we defied mother nature and got it done anyway as the photo on the left plainly shows. The rest of our week was beautiful, sunny, and warm and we had a fantastic time. I may or may not have enjoyed a mai tai or 3.

 

 

 

Lastly, and most importantly, I will be releasing my best and most amazing single this coming June. Little baby Stuck will be making his debut appearance and I couldn't be happier or more excited about it! 

So if you need an additional reason to buy or stream my music please let baby Stuck be it so i don't have to put him to work... haha

Today is "Someday"! 

My newest release is finally here! YES! I'm super stoked to finally have it out there. You can hear it on all the usual streaming outlets, buy it on CDBaby, amazon, and itunes, or watch the video right here. I can't wait to hear what you think! And if it ain't too much trouble please add it on whatever your service of choice is. 

I also got to talk a bit about the tune with my good friend Steven O'Reilly on a bonus episode of his Bar Star podcast. Check it out when you get some time. He talks to a lot of people in the music business that you may not be super familiar with and is quite entertaining. Click the pic to hear that. 

Hope every single one of you has an absolutely wonderful Christmas (or whatever else you may celebrate) and i look forward to playing music for you soon!

"someday" is almost here 

In just a little over a week "If Someday Never Comes" will finally be available and i'm so excited to share it. If you have already pre-saved or pre-ordered it then i owe you a huge THANK YOU!  If not, it's not too late. DO IT!

 

Entries to the "An Elf Named Moe" art contest are already coming in and i'm anxious to see what all of the kiddos come up with this year. Here's one of the early entries. I'm hoping to get lots more but i know it will be difficult to choose just one to be the winner. If you have a son or daughter who likes to draw go to AnElfNamedMoe.com to find out how they can enter to win the $100 grand prize. It's free so what's stopping you?

 

 

I was a guest on episode 267 of Simon Tam's Music Business Hacks podcast. If you're interested in the business side of the music business you can listen on any of the usual podcast providers or just hear it via the website here. Simon had a few great ideas for ways to try to promote my Christmas tune and we talk about books, podcasts, equipment and running among other things.

 

 

As always, thank you so much for your support! Talk to ya soon.

"If Someday Never Comes" is just a few weeks away! 

Does that mean that someday has come after all? (i know, i know, bad joke)

The release of my latest single If Someday Never Comes is only a few weeks away and my pre-save campaign is underway. If you're on Spotify you can pre-save it here and if you prefer to own your music you can pre-order from Amazon here. This is a song about feeling like your heart has finally been broken for good and the fear of what comes after. I'm super stoked to share it and can't wait to hear what you think. Please pre-save or pre-order it if you have a second (just click the pic-->). It really helps give a new release some legs if there's some action on it on the day of release.

The 2nd annual Elf Named Moe Christmas art contest is also in full swing and I am, in the words of Frosty's magician Professor Hinkle, "busy, busy, busy" doing all that that entails. If you know a school aged kiddo who likes to draw and would like $100 cash to spend on toys or anything else please let them know about it. It's also a great way to keep your little elves occupied while you're preparing for your Christmas parties and dinners, wrapping presents and whatnot. You can listen to the song (free) and sign up at AnElfNamedMoe.com.

I recently did an interview for the podcast Music Business Hacks which is hosted by musician, author, and entrepeneur Simon Tam who, as a member of the all-Asian band The Slants, won a landmark trademark case in the Supreme Court. Simon is a well-spoken and gracious host and we talked about An Elf Named Moe, If Someday Never Comes and other music related topics. The podcast should be online very soon. It will be available in all the usual podcast spots or you can listen directly from his website here.

Thanks, as always, for your continued support. I super-appreciate it.

until next time....

New single set for release 

So, one thing that keeps me from getting things done is the fact that i'm a perfectionist who is brutally aware of how imperfect i actually am. Because of this i'm constantly trying to fix things that i think i can do better. That, in turn, leads me to never finish anything or to trash whatever i'm working on because it's not good enough and start from scratch. 

Well, i've temporarily conquered my near implacable desire to perfect something i've written and am set to release a single called "If Someday Never Comes".  Anyone who's gone through the heartache of losing someone who they were not prepared to lose will relate to the feeling that drove me to write this one.

My longtime friend and former bandmate Adam Wells was gracious enough to play drums for me on the tune and did some amazing things that were pleasant surprises and which made me remember why i have always loved making music with him. On the B3 organ is key-man extraordinaire Bob Ramsey. i struggled against the temptation to turn his keyboard part all the way up through the whole song because his playing was just so damn good. (seriously he's that good)  Phil Bright recorded the whole thing and was so instrumental in helping to achieve my vision that i am begrudgingly forced to give him credit as a co-producer. ;)

Anyway, keep an ear out for it.  If everything goes according to plan it'll be available on December 14th.  If you follow me on Spotify or whatever your favorite streaming service is it will be a big help to me and i'll be forever grateful. You can also follow my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts to keep up with me on the socials if that's where you hang. 

 

Back from the CDBaby diy musician conference in Nashville and fired up to get back to work to get some more music out and continue playing shows to promote it. I'm still hard at work on both my solo project and my rock project with Phil Bright (which we have tentatively named "Splintered Mind" see video above.) My new solo single will hopefully be out by the first of the year if all goes as planned so watch for a pre-save campaign coming soon.

I'll be appearing as part of Bryan Fox and the Good Chiggens for a show at Nashville's "The Local" venue on September 21st. Nashville friends please stop by and say hello.

 I'll also be appearing on both days of the Belknap Festival in Louisville, KY which happens October 12th and 13th. On the 12th I'll be doing a solo set and I'll have copies of  a CD of stripped down versions of several of my tunes that is only available at live shows.  On the 13th I'll be joining my friends in Mary Mary for a fun set of rock 'n' roll. 

Lastly, if you have a second please follow me on Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music or your favorite streaming service. Your follows and thumbs up will help make my music more visible and increase the chance that the algorithms will take notice so I super-appreciate the effort. 

Until next time.....
