I've been a terrible blogger folks, I know it. But I can attest most of my absence from being so busy over the past few months. My New Record titled "The Blanket Wanderer" is out TODAY, you can download it from ITunes for a very reasonable price, please check it out and if you like the tunes please buy it. So much work has gone into the making of this record and we're trying to get it into as many hands as possible. You can help by spreading the word to all of your friends and family.
Thank you and enjoy the music, future, more timely posting on my end.

Appreciate talent like this because in fifty years when computers really take over, and our moves, love and music are purely mechanical; mystic bards in the shrinking areas of underpopulation are going to tell stories of a time when things were made of feelings. Music like this is going to be their greatest example

Here's a video of me doing a tune from my upcoming album! This is from a long time ago, one late night when I was a guest on my friend Sam Schacter's radio show. The video quality is not that great but I thought it would be cool to show some of whats to come. The tune on my album will sound much different but the general progression and lyrics are the same- the rest you'll just have to wait and find out about for yourself...
here's the lyrics to "Iodine"
you had a lot of faith
but you're walking away from it
your city's big
I never got used to it
you're a China doll
in a sea full of mines and blunt objects
you're a wishing wall
laziest days full of unfinished projects
all we know, on our feet
it hurts our feet when we walk away
and if things don't change we'll be walking away again
at the sink
wash the worlds dishes you swallow your pride
you might have lived cause somebody died
if you give it up
nothing more than a shadow tucked under a light
you're a ticking bomb
a mixture of chlorine and iodine
all we know, hands and knees
it hurts them please, don't crawl away
all we get is a look at days
mistakes we made and bread we wasted
and if things don't change we'll be crawling away again
all we know, on our backs
the books are stacked and slowly falling
all we get is the spit we make
don't tell me about breaks that will never happen
if things don't change we'll be running away, if things don't change we'll be running away and if things don't change we'll be running away from it.
