If All We Have is Now

I am very excited to have my latest single “If All We Have is Now” available in the OOL store! It was originally composed to be part of a charity compilation on HawkMoon Records at the end of 2016.

I have made just a couple tweaks to the mastering since then and the newer version is available here.

The Broken Light Show interview

A few weeks back I was interviewed by my friend David Mantel for his podcast “The Broken Light Show”.

It’s my first ever audio interview, and as I’m not very good at, well…talking, I fumble around a lot – BUT, I do think that there are some good and important things that we discussed! Things like the value of art in the current paradigm and how I feel that giving away ‘free’ music often undermines it’s own perceived value.

It was a great time and you can hear it on his podcast here: The Broken Light Show

Go ahead and subscribe while you’re at it! There are some great artists like Andrew & Michael Tasselmyer(Hotel Neon, The Sound of Rescue) & Andy Othling(Lowercase Noises) in other episodes. My interview is in episode 4.

Colour Theories track and mix

I have a new little project that I’ve started over on Mixcloud. It’s a conceptual playlist called Colour Theories.

Let me describe it.

Each playlist in the series will consist of 8 tracks: a ‘theme’ track which I’ve written and then 7 tracks by other artists ‘numbered’ not with digits but by the colour spectrum(ROYGBIV). Each song has something to do with that particular colour, either something in the title or that just the mood that the song gives me.

It’s a fantastic playlist, if I do say so myself, with tracks from Helios, Amman.Josh, Hammock, Moshimoss, Lowercase Noises, Stray Theories and Aural Method. So head on over to Mixcloud and give it a listen!

My Colour Theories track is now available in the shop.

 

*just a note – I have since deleted my account Mixcloud and thus the show no longer exists*

transit and an ambient sketch

There has been lots going on lately! Last week I released my very first full length album of ambient music called transit. Check it out if you get a chance. So far I’ve been getting lots of positive feedback on it so I guess people are connecting with the songs.

There are also a couple new reviews of transit up on the press page. Wonderful words. I am truly humbled.

I also just put up a new ambient sketch video on my YouTube page, but you can see it from the new videos page on this website. It’s a fun little piece using multiple delays in Guitar Rig.

Cheers!
