The final installation of our 4 part collection, “Something Blue” is coming 10/26/18. As part of that release we’re premiering our new music video for the track “Decide” courtesy of BIRP FM. The video was adapted from a claymation film called "The Restoration" directed by Sam Ward (http://afilmbysamward.blogspot.com/) with Paul Hoppe & Malachi Ward, and was adapted/edited by yours truly. Special thanks to Sam, Paul, and Malachi for granting me the permission make it my own. Without further ado….
"Something Else" is out today ya'll! This is part 3 of our 4 part collection all coming out in 2018. This EP is full of upbeat rock and roll songs with a wonderful 60's feel. Mystic Sons compared our single, Talking, to Mac Demarco, calling it a "laid-back summertime jam". Hope you enjoy folks, 3 down and only 1 more to go! I can't believe we're more than half way through the year now!
Our latest EP "Something New" is OUT NOW! Part 2 of 4 to release this year is fun pop synth inspired album full of singles and catchy hooks. We've already received some amazing reviews from Skope Magazine and No Depression, calling us "future chart toppers" and claiming that no one is doing it better than us right now. You can find the EP at any of your favorite streaming and music purchasing outlets. Cheers! More coming soon....
Hey everyone! It's all happening...
Part 1 of 4, "Something Old" is already out and available, and part 2, "Something New", will be arriving 5/25/18. The good folks over at Atwood Magazine just premiered the new single, Everything, and wrote up a splendid article that you can read HERE.
More coming soon!
As some of you may know, I've been holding onto a ton of new music for quite a while now. Good news is I've decided to release it...ALL of it...this year.
Yes, that's right, I'm happy to announce that 2018 will be the year of the great music purge! Starting 2/2 I'll be releasing the "Something Old" EP, which will be part 1 of a 4 part EP collection all to be released this very year. Along with these new tracks you can expect to see a number of music videos, live videos, etc.

It's been a while since the last news update, let's catch up! The spring and summer have treated us very well, playing live music non stop, AND working on a brand new EP. Yes, you heard that right, an EP. Rather than putting out the much anticipated full length, Memos, we've decide to start ya'll off with a 4 track stunner that is wrapping up soon. Follow us on Instagram for some sneak peek clips and frequent updates on the new tracks. You can expect the release to be some time this fall/early winter. In the mean time, head on over to the SHOWS tab to see when we'll be playing in your city! Cheers folks!
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported! We had a blast!
Hello! It's been a minute since my last news post, so what do you say we catch you up?
First, I released a tribute this week to one of my all time favorites, David Bowie. The song is a cover of "Golden Years", one of my favorites from the album Station to Station. I was lucky enough to get Claire Morales to come and sing with me, and I think it turned out fantastic! I produced, engineered, and played all of the music on the track (with the exception of Gunnar Ebeling on the bass guitar), and it was mixed and mastered by the great wizard, Roy Robertson. Hear it and download for free on Bandcamp or Soundcloud, and enjoy this photo gallery below, courtesy of The Vision Beautiful.
Second, we've been shooting some videos that we're very excited to share with you (soon). The first of these videos was a live session at the Denton Music Workshop where we played three tracks from our upcoming record, Memos. The best part about these sessions is that we were accompanied by a makeshift orchestra made up of some of the best artist in all of North Texas: Leoncarlo, Jacob Metcalf, Teddy Waggy (Siamese), and Roy Robertson (Pageantry). The other video we've got coming for you is an official music video for a fan favorite track, Humanitarians. Without giving away too much, here are a couple of photos from our incredibly cold shoot in Colorado:
Other than that, we've been playing some great shows and have more coming that we hope to see you at. Thats all folks! As always, the best way to keep up with whats going on is by following us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter! Cheers!
Hey folks! Sorry its been a while since my last news update. We've been all over the place trying to play as much as possible. We've got one more show with Sofar Sounds to wrap up our 2016 this Sunday in Dallas, TX. See our SHOWS tab for details.
We'll be lining up more dates after the new year, so keep a lookout. One that we are very excited to announce is our official showcase with SXSW! Click HERE to see our SXSW artist profile and get a sneak peak at one of our tracks. More news will be coming shortly, until then, enjoy this little thumbnail gallery of photos from some of our recent shows:
I'm excited to announce a new show in Dallas after nearly 10 years! Its crazy to think that it has been that long but I'm looking forward to returning, and this time as a local. We'll be playing at Club Dada with A Silent Film on Friday, September 2. For info on the show, including ticket purchase, check out the event via Facebook. Hope to see you out there. Cheers!

I got invited to play my first Sofar Sounds event last week and had an amazing time. The "secret" show was held at The Bearded Monk in Denton, TX and included three other fantastic bands ELEL (Nashville), Neonnoah (Dallas), and The Daybreaks (Nashville). It was a great night and we couldn't have asked for a better crowd. We should have some live footage/recordings for ya'll to see soon, so stay tuned. Thanks again to Sofar for including me, you're the best, cheers!
Here is a second video from People of Denton talking about why I chose Denton, TX of all places (including some cool shots of the town), and a live acoustic version of "Control" to follow. I can't say enough about this amazing town and the great people who live in it. I've felt nothing but support since the moment I arrived, and I know I made the right choice coming here. Cheers to a bright future in a wonderful new place!
People of Denton put together an amazing video and I'm excited to share it with ya'll. The first half is an interview talking about my new record, my recent move to Denton, my family and life in general, followed by a live acoustic version of new track "Decide" from the upcoming record Memos (coming out later this spring), shot at Denton's Chairy Orchard. Enjoy!
Thanks so much to Wesley Kirk and Erin Summerlin for doing such a fantastic job and being so fun to work with. Cheers!
An awesome Denton, TX blog known as The Dentonite just put together a great list of bands to look for, of which I'm thrilled and honored to be included. As the new guy in town, it feels fantastic to be so well received by such a wonderful community. To read the nice write up and hear some other great bands, click HERE. Cheers!

Hey folks, sorry it's been a while since my last post. Time can really fly when you move across the country to a brand new city. My family and I are really starting to settle in to our new home, and we couldn't be happier. Denton is an absolutely amazing place, full of incredibly nice people that support the artistic and creative community. I'm looking forward to getting some musicians together soon and playing some shows around DFW. On that musical note, I'm happy to announce that the new album "Memos" is finished and will be coming out sometime in the spring of 2016. Get pumped folks, I think you're really going to love this one. Along with live shows, we should have some new tracks and videos coming soon, so keep a look out. Until then, you can click here to read more about the making of the album, and get a sneak peak of a track called "Grow". Hope all is well with you readers, Happy Holidays to you and yours! Cheers!
Hey folks! We have launched a Kickstarter! For those of you who aren't familiar, Kickstarter is a brilliant sight to help creatives find funds for their projects.

Depending on the dollar amount donated, you will be awarded some pretty cool prizes from yours truly. It's only open until August 16th so don't wait too long! Cheers! And thank you!
