Hey folks—I’ve got a new album coming. It’s called LONE RATS.
This album is a collection of songs that haven’t been able to find homes on the other albums I’ve been writing over the past 3 years. I’ve got 4 albums currently in the works that are all now slated for 2020. I wanted to get these songs out ahead of all that because, even though they don’t fit the concepts of these forthcoming albums, I like them & am proud of them. I’m also featuring a cover—It Could’ve Been Me by my friend & one of my favorite songwriters, Scott Davis.
I recorded this album on August 1, 2019 in the garage of the furniture shop I’ve been working at for the past 5 years—Uptown Modern in Austin, TX. It’ll be kind-of an odd acoustic album with some added things here & there… Texture, I guess? Noise, sampling, some synths, etc. Weird shit just to make it a little bit of a journey into where my brain’s currently at. I’m excited to share it with you & it’s scheduled to be out on my birthday, September 27. I appreciate all of you who’ve ever listened & shared my music. Means the world to me.
