A painting is usually a single moment in time, the image that glows behind your eyelids mid blink. So how do you combine a static painting with the very much time-based medium of music?
That random decision to see what would happen if I threw my camera into time lapse mode was an exciting lightbulb moment. Setting my time lapses to music was my next big lightbulb. And now, well… I’m not quite ready to share the next evolution of this legendary Pokémon, but suffice to say supplies have been ordered and plans have been made.
The latest release is out and available on CD Baby, iTunes, and Spotify! Co-written with Pal Sheldon and released on the Artec Sound label, this song takes a look at the fear and challenges of leaving a bad situation and finding the courage to move onto something better.
I can't resist a good nautical metaphor (is it obvious I'm struggling with the whole land-locked thing?) and Pal is one of my absolute favorite people to cowrite with, so I knew we'd get something good. Song quickly took on a life of it's own and ultimately inspired some of my favorite artwork yet (greatly aided by Pal's excellent graphic design skills).
I'm so excited for you all to hear it and hope it helps you gather the courage to move on to the next great thing in your life, just as writing it helped me!
What's my favorite holiday? Why, Halloween, of course! It's closely followed by Thanksgiving (food is kind of my thing), but without a doubt, All-Hallows-Eve is the winner. All around the leaves are changing into brilliant jewel tones; there's a little, invigorating chill in the air; and I can consume pumpkin flavored confections until my farts smell like pie.
To celebrate this most wonderful time of the year, I'll be sharing new content all month long. As part of the SEASON OF THE WITCH, I'll be sharing new cover songs, music videos, photos, and even some adult coloring pages to help you get in the Halloween spirit.
Look out for something new every week, with a brand new video coming Friday the 13th.
