5-12-13 | My BECU Debut
In April, BECU asked me to be a part of commercial, and the cast and crew filming the video made me feel like a complete rock star. It's super fun to be able to post the "Share your dream" ad that is currently running on TV.
11-8-12 | Ten Years of Live Performing
This is the first track from my very first album. The album was self titled and independently released (I burned people copies from my desktop computer) in 2002. You might find it hard to believe, but I did most of my own artwork. My brothers helped me cut out the picture of myself, and I designed everything else in a Word doc. I printed the album covers on an old inkjet printer.
6-27-12 | The Doodles, the Unicorns, and Me
Scott and I ask people to doodle at Kin to Stars shows, and I noticed a uni-versal theme is emerging…
As any curious person would do, I google searched “Unicorn of Happiness” and discovered that unicorns do exist! AND you can put them on a photo of your choice!! So I did. Thanks in advance to photographer Kerry McQuaid (who doesn't yet know that I glitterfied her photo of me) and to www.cornify.com for the copious amounts of free rainbows and unicorns.
So much sparkle, so much class!
PS I totally had to add the above to my Facebook photos so that my mailing list provider would recognize the image URL. It's now my profile pic. Fan-unicorn-tastic.
6-12-12 | Can't Take the Tweet
Nothing makes you feel like a technology superstar like tweeting an update to 41414 instead of 40404. Prior to tonight, my last tweet was 141 days ago, which is equivalent to forever in Twitter time. I’m surprised I haven’t been tweeted off the island. Then again, the Twitter-ers probably forgot I was even here. Darn me for reminding them!
Music life lately has been focused on writing and performing Kin to Stars tunes. Scott and I recently released “Tell It to Me Straight” on Bandcamp. We have a couple other notable nuggets available there, too, so it’s worth a visit if you haven’t heard our duo stuff. Plans are to keep recording more tracks throughout the summer months and to just keep having fun with this project. So far, so good.
10-19-11 | New Tunes on Bandcamp
Not only does Kin to Stars have a show in Tacoma this Friday (6:30pm @ the Harmon Brewery Tap Room. woot woot!), we have two new songs on Bandcamp. You should definitely give them a listen, share them with your friends, and download them to your playlist.
7-18-11 | Kin to Stars
Oh how time flies and new songs sparkle. Scott and I started a low pressure write-athon about a year and a half ago just to see what our musical minds could create. Well, I’m pleased to say that we are finally ready to debut a bunch of new tunes as Kin to Stars. For these early months, we’ll be rockin' out as an urban folk duo, and as a teaser, Scott put together the trailer below. You can find the event on facebook or just put a pencil to paper and mark your calendars old school style for our first show on August 6th at Egan’s in Ballard.
