August News – 2014

I’ve never had much luck with my website, until recently! It’s still in “development” and I’m still working out the kinks! 😀 For many years I had someone else updating my website, but that didn’t work out very well because I couldn’t update it as often as I wanted to and I ended up turning to using Facebook and Twitter more! I hope to be changing that habit a little more and updating my website more often because I realize that a lot of people are missing my posts over on the social sites – Bummer!

I love my kitty

In other news, I’ve been very busy working on recording my new album! I’m excited to be releasing it by the end of this year!  The only problem I’m having is that it’s inspiring me to write MORE music! haha! I now have 2 new songs that I’ve started since I started recording. I think they may have to wait until I release this album because I don’t think I’ll get them to where I want them in time for them to be included. Right now I have a list of song name ideas and album titles and I can’t wait to finally release and share them all with you!

 

Do you like my visuals? ;D

This is what recording looks like ;]

 

I also have a show coming up in Las Vegas in September at the Classic Gaming Expo!  Both of my bands will be playing, so I hope to see you there!

We Need Your Support !
We are funding the tour ourselves, but we are about $2000 short. This is where you come in, we need to raise money to cover our remaining tour expenses. We have gigs lined up across the USA and its just a matter of funding to get to each of them. If you donate to the tour, we have great gifts/perks (CD’s, T-Shirts, etc..) to offer in exchange for your generosity.
