Rock Song

I just wrote a pretty cool rock song. Kinda sad and dark. Any artists who want it hit me up. I just want credit for writing it. Especially if it gets recognition.

Tecla's debut record blends so many genres the shortest way to describe it is this: Awesome. #SoundCheck

So I was starting to write about 'We Are The Lucky Ones', the debut album from Electro-funk/neo-soul/Afro-pop/glitch/RnB singer Tecla and my opening line was going to be about how the only genre she doesn't touch on is French Cabaret, and then I got to the stunning ballad “Moi” and that went pretty much out the window.

A Zombiefied Hello

I am startled to find I haven't written anything here yet. Somehow in my completely orderly fantasy life, I always know what I want to share with this community and in that world, it always happens.  I am going to do my best to start bringing the two worlds closer together.  

I've wanted to let everyone here know about my new Mantra-Pop CD, This., and to keep up with new places to see shows and…

Empty Soapbox

Recorded this song usin my guitar and roll-out piano. Sang with a bit of nervousness, but I regret nothing. Whipped up in around an hour, the song is an official introduction to my CSOIM project. Enjoy?

 

The soapbox looking lonely

Looking lame among the lavish

Talking tongues are saying little

That the future books will cherish

I could occupy this space

I could open up my face

But do I have what it may take

To fill in spaces of…

Free Download! Check out the mind-expanding “1% Static” from psychedelic prog rock band Galaxy of Tar's latest EP. #SoundCheck

The thing that differentiates good prog from bad is whether the complex poly-rhythms and spontaneous key changes feel necessary or like the band is just sort of showing off. Galaxy of Tar's songs may be complex, and certainly Elias Diaz V.'s musicianship is on full display, but on their latest EP Barretta, they earn every atonal guitar solo and sudden drum breakdown.…
