The album "House Go Boom" draws very near! It will sadly not make an appearance at our first festival of the summer, but soon my friends! (broken record right? lol) Great news! The video for the title track is almost complete as well. We'd like to thank Matthew Ballard for his work on producing this video and all he has done to help us out! Woo hoo!
So it's been a long time since I've checked in with everyone. Lot's of things are happening and I'm happy to share them with you here. First off, the album "House go Boom" is on it's way!!! We have finished in the studio and are in the final mixing process and finishing art for the cover. We have shot a video for the title track and will have that up around the time the album drops. We have been filling up our bookings for the summer and hope to see all of you while we're out on the road this summer.
Sadly we have parted ways with our guitarist Michael after 3 years of touring with him. We would like to wish him the best in luck in his future endeavors.
So keep your ears peeled for our new album! Thanks for all your support over the years, we really do appreciate it. Keep those requests coming for bookings! Fan us on Facebook and Myspace and keep up with other news and behind the scenes information and pictures. Catch you at a show near you!
Well, good things are happening. I'm working on a new website to 'wow' you with shortly here with the release of "house go boom" our sophomore album coming out mid to late summer. Also we are pulling out all stops and asking you to help spread the word about our music by adding yourself as a fan on Facebook! We have a page there and also on Myspace. Add us and tell your friends! I hope this finds you well and sad that it's short, but I just wanted you to know we are out there working hard on the new album for you guys and have already been playing the new tunes at many of our shows! Come check us out!!
Great things are in the works for the summer. I will let you know as they develop. I'm will be touring to other states this summer and hope to get to meet as many of you as I can while I'm on the road. I have taken some time off this last couple months to work on the equipment as well as the new music. I'm booking shows for the summer and apologize for my lack of updates to the website. I may at some point turn over the show updates to someone who can better keep up with them.
Thanks to you all for being there and showing your support at the shows I've had. I really appreciate everything and all of your positive remarks/feedback.
I wanted to elaborate more on the FaceBook progress. I have added both an iLike page as well as a Fan page on there. If you are on Facebook please take a moment to add us to both and spread the word! I really do appreciate all the support I get from you guys!!
Also! We are officially now on iTunes! Yay! So check it out there and if you haven't gotten the CD you can now do so there. Although if you still want a hard copy I just ordered more and will have them back online in about two weeks. I have sold out online and am excited to say that things are looking up for the summer. I am booking a lot of shows and I'm talking with a few people about doing national shows. So I might be in your major city soon! Keep an eye out here for more updates.
I have also added new videos that a fan had sent from my last show. They are up on the youtube page so check those out. There are some of the new songs I have been working on there as well.
Thank you all for your support, and I hope this message finds you well.
Just a quick note to let you know we are on iLike now so you can add us to your facebook! Check us out and show your support. As always, we appreciate it!
Well it's a new year and I am hopeful that it will breathe new light into our music! I have been writing new songs and working a new angle as well as a few projects I'm working on at the moment. Worry not my friends; I will let you in on them as they come to pass. Winter has been interesting as we have been rehearsing and preparing for a good year ahead! I'd like to take a moment to welcome Greg to our band! He is a kick ass bass player who had played with Mike and I in high school in the band Blue Daisies. We're happy to have him with us playing many of the shows!
Shortly I am going to register to put our music on itunes and will have it available for download on our myspace...so keep looking for that as well!
Thanks for a good year everyone. I really do appreciate the support and can't wait to see you at a show this year.
I was informed last night that Francois' will no longer have live music and all shows there were canceled. I am frustrated with the number of venues that are closing down or canceling their local music nights. I know that all of you have been great supporters of my music and our shows. I hope that you will be able to get to one of our other shows and I will continue to book more local shows to replace those we had already scheduled.
Also for those of you interested I've finally made a banner for myspace or your personal website. I would definitely appreciate the support. If you would like to have that on your page, please email us via the contact page and we will get the code for you. As soon as I can figure out how to embed it here for download I will have it on the site. I'm just not that advanced yet on my web page skills. haha.
Today I got an email from Lansing's New 97.5. They are going to put "LIED" on their playlist for the show WIRED which starts at 11pm weeknights and features local indie music. I would like to encourage everyone to call in and request "LIED" or fill out their online request form! I am excited that they are doing this for local artists and hope that we can gain some new fans through it! Click on the station name above and it will direct you to the station's website where you can listen in and request songs!
We are also adding more and more shows on the listings here and encourage anyone who would like to see us play in your area to let us know of any places that might like to have us. I will always appreciate your suggestions! Just click on the contact link and shoot me an email!
Well well... I just got home from spending the evening in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and I'm tired! haha. We had a great show at the Ft. Wayne Pride Celebration last night and then hit the town with some friends of mine from the area. It was a great experience and we were happy to be a part of the fun and entertainment. I hope to welcome some new fans to our website and to the myspace page and encourage you all to friend request us on myspace and/or youtube. We definitely appreciate all the support from our fans and look forward to playing in the area again. Well, I'm off to take a nap and catch up on some much needed rest.
Things have been good to us in the past few months and I wanted to start a page on the website to tell everyone about it. So let me get right to it and start by letting you know we just finished shooting the first music video for "Goodbye" this past weekend. I'm excited to tell you that it's going to be great when it's finished in the editing room and can't wait to share it with all of you! We got some great footage from The Franke Center for the Arts thanks to the great staff there and my wonderful friends Chris and Dennis. Also my friend Gene let us use his beautiful victorian home for a portion of the shoot as well!
If you are on myspace please take a moment to add us to your profile and help support our music!! Speaking of support...We've been booking a lot of summer shows so definitely come out to see us when we are near! I think that is going to do it for now. I have posted more on my myspace blog about the actual filming of the video so if interested take a look there for more details. I hope this finds you all well! Take care.
