Entertained At Last!
Tell us about yourself and your music
Well, I was raised in a good ole fashioned Nashville Country. But when I moved to Texas and turned 14… Whoah… I started liking a Stratocaster. I started listening to bands like Rancid and NoFX and the Dropkick Murphy’s. I started going to Punk Rock Shows by the time I was in 10th Grade.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release was I Conclude I Came Unglued, and boy did I ever, and I don’t just mean last night… I Conclude was an album I did at 5th Street Studios in Austin Texas with a guy… The same friend I worked with on the Debut album; For That Fleeting Glimpse of She, his Name’s Evan. We bought a bottle of Jameson and a bottle of something he liked he had behind the glass… (Not sure what that cost me) and I did the Album and wound up with 13 songs I liked. I did a cut of Edwin Ole Jones in the studio but couldn’t keep it on I Conclude I Came Unglued… It didn’t make the final cut.
What inspired you to write this release?
It was the loss of a darling. It was a loss so permanent, that I too was gone in a certain insane sort of way…
It was my wife’s suicide, and that tangled up a tale of some twisted tragedy somewhere between a Cinderella story, a divorce, and a death.
I had recorded first, an album called, Never Quite Cloaked As She. This was a unique album and a subsequent album, Friendship Love and Paragraph. What I wound up doing with the songs from these albums were posting them as videos in high-quality digital sound on YouTube. Sounds great through earbuds on full volume. Can damage hearing I hear. Tangled up says the man… She’s gone.
Describe the writing and recording process
That Fleeting Glimpse of She was written and recorded while I was married to Julie Ann. Julie was even in Studio A while I was recording the album… I was drinking Dos Equis. Gives the album that unique flavor and sound.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
I plan to Host the Abilene Rose Gold Festival June 19th – 21st (if I can get some other artists involved and interested and get a crowd and some equipment coming) Then Hopefully, with the right transportation and coordination we will go on tour from there.

As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I want to present something interesting, a real show, something magical. The words should transport, the music should lift or move you.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I’ve been watching everything from Dylan to the News, to Ozzy, to Metallica, to The Staves, then there’s Ryan Bingham of course. There’s always Std Barret of Pink Floyd. David Gilmore, NoFX, Dropkick Murphy’s… I watch a Lot!
Who are your biggest influences?
This guy I just mentioned… And I love Brandi Carlile’s music. But… Bob Dylan.
Tell us about your passions
My passion is writing. The written word. Words and Litterature. And the spoken word. Music. The voice.
