For those who have been following for a while, you can probably tell that this website has been going in a different direction lately.

Why Do You Make The Art You Do?

Dear Reader, I’m going to preface this by saying that I will try my best to not make this all about me. It seems like my last few posts have been focused entirely on my recent musical endeavors. And I suppose that’s okay because (a) this is a blog and (b) I’m an unsigned indie… Continue Reading

Am I Supposed To Announce This? Part Two

Dear Reader, Long version: Once again, I am coming at you with another blog post where I have no idea if anything I am about to write has any sort of interest for anyone. I first wrote one of these posts when I had just completed the writing of my album. It didn’t feel like… Continue Reading

Am I Supposed To Announce This?

Dear Reader, I’m really bad at marketing myself, but from what I’ve learned so far, you’re supposed to do that as an artist. If you have something coming out, you need to “build the hype” and assume that someone actually cares about what you’re doing. The only exception to this rule, of course, is if… Continue Reading
