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!!
This song was driven by one of my biggest pet peeves, which is people saying they’ll do what will never get done. Whether it’s friends, co-workers or politicians, I’d rather you don’t say anything at all then tell me 10 times about something you plan to do or help me with. From time to time I’m guilty of the same thing, so this track is a bit of a reminder to myself as well, but for the most part I’m a man who tends to take action with very little discussion. Often times I’ll complete a task or goal without anyone around me even knowing it was on my radar. I believe that the more time you spend trying to convince someone else you’ll do something, the more comfortable you become in not doing it. So don’t talk about it, be about it. Please download the free full song or instrumental below.
This track was inspired by those days when we cruise in our rides out of enjoyment instead of necessity. When no matter what our car looks like on the outside we’re feeling good on the inside and banking every turn with an open palm on the wheel. I had a lot of fun making this song and I hope you’ll add it to your driving playlists. Download the free full song or instrumental below.
I’ve been lacking big time in motivation lately. I often find myself in that mode after putting everything into an album and seeing little return on it after I make it public. I just can’t seem to figure out how to break through in this game without compromising my music. Luckily thanks to all of YOU I’m able to snap out of that rut whenever it occurs, even when that rut is at its deepest level. Special shout out to Sam Cross who gave me some encouraging words at just the right time. His comments inspired me to produce this song immediately after we chatted online. The free mp3 can be downloaded below.
Thank you so much for being my motivation. Who is YOURS?
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!
