Finally got some shirts in the store! Found some awesome independent designers to work with, so the process was fun and the result was really neat to see.
Also, new tune in the works for There Came An Echo. Jimmy Hinson and I are making tons of progress. I'm hearing what Jimmy is working on (we share a top-secret dropbox folder) and it's crazy-good. It's going to be a fun game/soundtrack.
Time really does go by fast. I'm already overdue for an update here and on the tubes, but first wanted to update here. My album, "Days Away", probably broke some record for me on sales and it's still doing great. THANK YOU FOR THAT!!
Right now I'm working on 5 original tunes for a game called There Came an Echo (mid-2014 release on Steam) and wanted to share one of them. Jimmy Hinson is doing most of the music and is a really nice guy that also happens to use FL Studio. I was a fan before I found out we were working on the same project. The soundtrack will be available on Steam and I'll be releasing my part plus some other songs at the same time in my own album.
My next album (mid-2014) will look like this:
[5 songs for TCAE] + [at least 5 more songs just for my album] = 10-song album
Back to work. Thanks again for the support on Days Away! I'm super-thankful for it!!

I put a ton of fun and hard work into this release and hope you find it fun and interesting to listen to. Huge thanks to my friends who give me input on the little stuff when I needed it, and millions of thanks to you for listening to the end results! I hope you like it!
The physical CD is now shipping (order here). It features more original artwork by Kori Michele Handwerker and Peter Selmayr on a high-quality digipack. I can't wait to see what they look like in person. It's a fun thing to anticipate seeing after all the effort put into the art alone. Update: They're here and they look awesome! Very happy w/ them!!
Other items of interest:
- Stores: iTunes, Bandcamp, Google Play, my MP3 store (MP3 download directly from me), Amazon (soon)
- Physical CD Signing: I will still be signing the CD's if you buy 2 or more, including if you buy an old+new CD. To keep it simple on me for shipping and to stay consistent/fair with the way I started doing it when I only had 1 CD, I only put the autographed CD's in packages of 2+ orders.
If you want me to email you when my CD is done, you can put your email in the top-right corner. Thanks to fastwagon.com for setting that up for me in a hurry. Super-cool. Back to work.
Some more stuff I'm working on. Thanks a million to Ken Scott for making an incredible drum package (epik drums). It takes forever to load in FL Studio but man is it worth it. Anywho, really appreciate you listening!!!
Heyhey! I'm working on trying to include this tune on my 3rd CD, and I'm overdue on sharing something. Thanks for your patience and thanks a million for listening.
I'm shooting for a 2012 release on RJCD3. I'm hoping I can make that happen. It's hard to plan because I get extra bursts of steam at unexpected times, so the gears sometimes switch to songs I didn't plan on spending any more time on. So my workflow is pretty weird right now. Inspiration hits and I'm spending 4 hrs on a tune I didn't plan on working on at all. That's how my first two CD's eventually came about, so I'm hoping it'll come together in 2012. Thanks again for your patience!! Back at it.
superchill tune I'm working on right now. thanks a ton for listening!!
Newnew! Thanks a million for listening!
I'm still REALLY enjoying the updates to FL Studio. I was a bit scared of the changes they made in v10 until I forced myself to work on a new project. This is more of that first tune I started on FL Studio 10 where I'm forced to see things in a different way. Within about 10 min, I was lost in this project and I was excited about the changes. It's super-valuable to have a tool you like working with. Huge thanks to those that have put their time and energy into making FL. I'm very thankful to have it.
I don't have an ETA on RJCD3 yet, but I definitely have enough fun material for it. I'm at the point where I need to keep a notebook on my desk and start keeping notes on what exactly needs to be worked on. Organization is not a natural thing for me in my production but without it, I end up going in circles without finishing stuff. HAHA
