I’ve been up to a lot.

Which is why I don’t blog very much. 

But here’s the gist.  

In July I released two CDs.  One of which, “SOS”, I released with my band, Vertigo Venus.  It dropped on July 9th, 2010, with a CD release at The Launchpad in Albuquerque.  The Strand, from Arizona (one of my favorite Industrial bands), played a set, and kids got rowdy.  It was quite nice to finally release a CD that was the culmination of the hard work of a group of people I love.

Soon after, I released a CD, one that I’ve been meaning to release for a long, LONG time.  It’s called “Welcome to Postwar USA”, and it’s the culmination of about ten or so years of writing, self-doubt, and re-construction.  I’m pretty happy with it.  I released it with only 100 CD copies, about 70 of which are left.  It’s for sale over in the store, if you’re interested, or you can get it digitally at all your favorite e-tailers. 

I had a CD release on July 24th, 2010, at Burt’s Tiki Lounge.  The Booty Green played, which made me very happy, and so did Vertigo Venus, the band with whom I plan to take over the world. The interesting thing about this day was that we’d already played a show earlier that day, in Farmington, NM; 200 miles away from Albuquerque.  So, I drove 400 miles in one day, and played three concerts.  I work really, really hard.  I was joined onstage by my friend Clint, who destroyed my beats and sounds with his unique noise/FSU sound.  I think it was pretty good.  Some super great fans bought the CD, and supported the hell out of me.  I’m really grateful for that. 

Some time passed, some more shows were played, and now another birthday has came and went.  I’m now 30 years old, and I feel like I’m only getting started on all the work I have to do. 

I’m pursuing a lot of avenues right now, including a radio promotion for Vertigo Venus, an Ableton Certification, and a lot of other hard work.  I’m keeping myself on the path to do things I want to do; play Coachella, tour heavily, and be a successful musician. Nothing, NOTHING will stop me from doing this. 

Thanks to everyone who reads things like this, supports me, and continues to listen to me.  You mean the world to me.  Thank you.
