I’m back from Thailand and ready to teach! Holler at me!
Happy holidays everybody! I’m about to split on winter vacation to Southeast Asia, and I’m pumped to share this with you before I go: Presenting Rocket in the Sky / Rainbow in the Sky, a collaborative EP with myself and Vela Citrine, my (now) 5 year old roommate. We recorded and edited lots of improvised jam sessions here at our place in Arcata, and we’re stoked about how it turned out! We recorded Vela’s song ‘Rocket in the Sky’ and pieced together the rest from loops of us singing, talking, and playing toy percussion, guitar, ukulele, and whatever else was lying around. I’ve been learning a lot about production in Ableton and its been super fun to work on these tunes. I even got Vela to help program some of the percussion parts from my Launchpad, you can hear it on the Hawk Song. Click the cover to check it out on Bandcamp, where you can download it for FREE. WORD.
I’m wrapping up the year in gigs with a string of bluegrass shows with Raising Grain! Its been a long year full of lots of music, I’m sorry to see it go but I’m stoked to take a break in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia this winter! Come say hi at my last shows of 2013!
