The Bad Ones – Live from Badlands

Video #2 of 4 from the “Live From The Parks” video series is out today.

The Bad Ones is a new song and will be on my forthcoming album due Fall ’21. If you stick around to the end of the video you just might hear a clip of the studio version 🙂

The song’s topic is pretty self explanatory… in fact, I trust you’ll understand its inspiration after the first line.

I recorded this video during my time spent in Badlands National Park this past October. And it’s clear from the footage that I got that Badlands is one of this country’s most unique and otherworldly parks.

Enjoy 🙂

That Was Then – live from Acadia

I was able to visit many of the country’s finest national parks this past fall, which inspired a bit of a project for myself. Live from the Parks. Whenever I had extra time, and spare courage, I would look for a calming spot to set up my mobile video/recording studio and get to work.

I was very happy to hear how my sounds resonated with the local nature, and though sometimes I was fighting the elements (the cold, the heavy winds, the parade of curious hikers) I’m glad that I was able to capture some unique moments and snippets of this beautiful world we live in.

Here is the first of four videos, “That Was Then,” recorded live at Acadia National Park in September 2020. Enjoy the tune, as well as the incredible scenery that dresses the coast of Maine.

If you feel encouraged to get out and see the parks this website offers a great resource.

Travelogue

I’m on a road-tripping quest through the US and by the end of next week I’ll have been to every state BUT Alaska… which I plan on experiencing sometime next year. So one can call it a bit of a journey.

I am guilty of being buried deep beneath a pile of routine and unhealthy media consumption, which has tinted my view on this country in an ugly and untrue hue. This trip has been a great way to dig myself out of that, and see how wonderfully remarkable this country (and planet) is.

My new mission in life: Learn the earth before the earth learns me.
