I managed to find big success on YouTube a few years ago for something other than music when I uploaded a video of me making my own Friday the 13th hockey mask. Since then, my subscribers, views and number of mask videos have grown like crazy. I didn’t set out to be a mask maker, but I also couldn’t just ignore the attention these masks received. Here are all of my mask videos so far.
My 2019 album All Alone is now available everywhere digital music is sold or streamed, including Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play . This album includes 9 songs, which is the first time I’ve had an album with less than 10 tracks on it. But I decided quality is better than quantity this time around, and once I said everything I felt like saying into my mic I just called it a wrap. For a long time there’s been a heavy feeling of loneliness weighing on me for multiple reasons, but lately it’s seemed to be even heavier than ever before. That’s where the title and overall theme of this album came from. I hope you’ll check it out and share it if you like it!
My latest album “Pressure & Time” is now available in ALL digital music stores including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Apple Music. Please get your copy today! I themed the title and cover around one of my all-time favorite movies, The Shawshank Redemption. My quest to blow up in the music world is much like Andy’s quest to escape prison. It just takes pressure and time. I’ve put in so many years to this music that I have a hard time recounting how many songs I’ve created. I guess I’ve always just hoped that applying pressure over time would lead me to success, instead of relying on connections and payoffs to make it happen. I’m very proud of this album and I hope you’ll give it a listen or even purchase a copy! Thanks everyone.
This is a video for my latest song called “At It Till I’m Gone.” I know I do a lot of tracks about sticking with this music thing forever, but you have to understand it weighs heavy on my mind. lol. The song is a free download, so please visit Soundcloud or the Free Music Archive to download the free track and add it to your playlists. If you like it, please share it!!
Well I can’t believe it’s been five years since my most successful song blew up here in the B/CS. In honor of the occasion I decided to give the track a much needed overhaul. Back when I recorded the original I was using old software, a different beat making approach and I had a different delivery in my voice (which I can’t remember why I was doing that). With all that being the case, I’ve wanted to give the song a makeover for a while now. I have remixed the beat, re-recorded the vocals and remastered the track. Download the FREE mp3 on the Free Music Archive page here on the site, or buy it in any of the digital music stores (iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, etc.) if you want to help support the cost of making music. This song will also be on the upcoming “greatest hits” project I’m putting together.
I hope you enjoy this version even more than the original!
This music video was shot in the beautiful area known as West Texas. I was visiting my relatives in Midland and thought while I was over there I could break off and shoot a music video using a fresh location I’ve never used. The wind farms out there are really cool. I knew I wanted to incorporate those. I also wanted to make a video that kept me hidden in plain sight. I don’t like how I look in general and I always hate when my music videos are mostly shots of my ugly mug rapping at the camera. In this video I was able to turn myself into a silhouette and let the landscape take the focus.
I was pretty pissed when I drove out to get my sunset shots at the wind farm in Stanton, TX and NOT ONE SINGLE TURBINE WAS SPINNING. I couldn’t believe the bad luck. There wasn’t so much as one gust of wind that night. I still got the shot, but it was as I was driving home that I noticed a nearby pumpjack and decided to grab one more shot of me rapping next to that. It turned out to be an absolutely perfect fit for the song. What goes up must fall to the ground. Not only do you have the visual of the jack going up and down, but in a time when the oil industry is hurting it represents that message in a real world example as well. Big thanks to my cousin Josh for helping me get the shots of me at the house that’s for sale and driving my truck. We basically drove around Midland trying to find something we could use that would make sense in the video and came across that house. The other road and landscape shots were ones I got while making the long drive home on my birthday. If you ever get a chance to drive the roads out around Rankin, TX you won’t be disappointed.
The song itself is about my habit of not getting excited about great things because I feel like I’ll jinx them if it’s going too well. I hate that I look at good moments that way, but I just can’t help but be suspicious. The other part of that is just the sadness that comes with knowing nothing lasts forever and anytime you’re on a high you need to be prepared for the moment you start your descent.
But to avoid ending this on a depressing note, I want y’all to remember the fact that I was standing alone out in the middle of a wind farm rapping for a camera on a tripod to make this video. I hope y’all enjoy it!
