Some big plans are in the works, but there will be more news on that soon. We are also working on getting some more videos on the site. In the meantime, enjoy these ones! Just a couple of live recordings of “Willow” and “Pocket Poetry” from this past summer, directed by our super duper friend, Cara Brown.
I’ll post if for 3 hours..This is the first rough mix I put together. A lot will change or get mixed much more before it’s trip to vinyl but I’m antsy for opinion. At 5:00 AM I will take down the link. Unless I fall asleep. Possible. enjoy. -deadwin …………………………………….too late.
It was about a year ago that I first went to Nashville to start this record. I appreciate everyones patience with this throughout the year. There have been a few speed bumps & broken hearts along the way but it’s still a work in progress. The support I’ve had with raising the funds and the random shows throughout the past few months have been a much needed motivator. Know that I haven’t ran off and paid off school loans with the album preorders. The funds are in a secure place far away from my pocketbook but I am more then ready to get this show on the road. Thanks again for your patience.
Birth co. has some updates of it’s own. During the summer I played a small Ecofest show in South Bend with a terrible turn out. An awkward little teenager came up after the show and introduced herself as Bailey Williams. She said she was playing a bit later. Seeing as I was half the audience I decided to stick around and hear what she had to offer. Turns out she’s been one of my favorites ever since. I’ve recorded a few of her tunes and am anxious to get them out for everyone to hear. The grand plan is getting a split EP released with her and I popping out hit after hit. First things first, finishing my record. Recording her songs and adding instrumentation has been a super treat. She’s a 17 year old super star & will blow peoples minds. Here’s a cover of Daniel Johnston she did. Look out for more to come from her joining up with the Birth co. family. Welcome her with open arms.
I must mention last nights show at my new friend Gus Bennett’s place. I haven’t ever been this nervous for a house show before. Best apartment in South Bend with the best people in South Bend. Thanks for everyone who came out and made it a blast. Gus, you were a true host. Thanks for having us in your amazing swimming pool home. Bailey & Peter Hochstedler were both tops. I love being included in with such super song writers. Peter will be missed around here. Best of luck to him and Angela as they freeze to death for the next month in Minneapolis and head to a Organic farm in Arizona. Everyone needs to drop by Peter’s bandcamp and steal everything he has.
Show at the end of the month with Bailey and some others. More info here.
This is for all the kickstarter support we’ve recieved. To all those who made the project a success, I owe my highest appreciations. $1835.00 makes it possible for us to order 3 times the amount of vinyl then we originally planned. The goal of $1200.oo seemed a far fetched amount but 65 people made it happen for us. Thank you. So whats next…in the past few weeks Andrew & I have been passing tunes back & forth from Nash Rash & South Bend. The main focus is finishing the free EP. Though its taken a bit more time then planned, … Continue reading →

Being that annoying fella that’s asking everyone for copious amounts of cash has proven to pay off…we are officially pressing to vinyl! It’s been a crazy 25 days. Seeing the amount exceed expectations has been a great accomplishment, but more so a massive encouragement. Here’s a bit of where things go from here. The EP is near it’s completion. It will feature 5 tunes not being released on the vinyl and one “single” from the full length. Once it’s ready we’ll have a … Continue reading →
