Rockin' The House

I am bad at updating this thing.

However, I have some cool things for you!

FIRST: I got paid to write some music for a video! Really cool stuff, and a fun challenge to try and write for a specific project. I was told by my director friend Sam to write something folksy with a short simple chorus. The rest was to be instrumental to allow for dialogue. The final project was a short promo video shown at Christian Assembly in preparation for an event this summer. The final song includes yours truly pickin' and singin' and the lovely Vanessa Brooks (she's taken boys, back off) singin' harmony.

You can check out the video here:
Colors Of Hope

I got a lot of great comments and encouragement on the song, as well as the opportunity to write a few more! So excited about that.

SECOND: I played another show. It was again at The Joint in LA, and this time on a Saturday night. It went really well, and we filmed the whole thing! Hopefully I can find some time to edit the videos and post a song or two on this here blog. I also got the chance to play with my good friends Troy and Travis who head up "The Adults." Check 'em out here.

OK, that is all for now. Thanks for keeping up with me!
