Starting 2019 with a debut of my latest track “Riding on a Wave”.
I’ve always considered myself a live musician and performer. Even though I’ve spent a lot of time in studio’s and messing around with recording, I’ve never been to crazy about the recording process. For me, the thrill was always in the live show. This past year I’ve spent more time sitting, writing and putting tracks together and working on an EP.
All music is done by me. Pop on some headphones or crank up your sound system and give it a listen.
Back in October of 2018 I worked with Jake Bass and his new artist Ryn Scott as the Assistant Director on a music video for his first single “Let it Go”. This was a fun shoot out in Holland, Michigan. We had the opportunity to showcase the beauty that is “Pure Michigan” and also drive around in a sweet 1974 AMC Matador classic. We dropped the video on 12/21/18, and within 1 week, we picked up 110,000 views.
The video was shared by the blog Come Here Floyd and this is what they had to say:
We got more videos on the way so stay tuned for more from Ryn Scott!!
The Deaf and Loud Spring ’15 Tour has officially wrapped. Another amazing journey with band and crew – after warming up with a few shows around Michigan, we hit the road for three weeks starting with a show at Mt. Aloysius College in PA, and a D-PAN ASL Music Video workshop in Delaware, continuing on to shows in South Carolina, St. Augustine, and Tampa Fl, Corpus Christi, Austin, and Houston TX, stops in Memphis to visit Graceland and Sun Studios, and wrapping with shows in Louisville and lastly Mississippi, it was one for the books.
A special THANK YOU to everyone that came out to show their support and rock out with us. It was AWESOME to have Robbie Wilde, a Deaf DJ from New Jersey join us. Thanks to Sean Forbes for once again bringing me along on tour. I couldn’t be more honored to share the stage with Sean, Robbie, and Jake Bass.
To be able to tour, play music with friends, meet friends old and new, inspire people, and make a living doing this as a Deaf individual is something I’ve worked extremely hard for, and I’m forever grateful for all the kind words and support. Sean and I have been touring together for 8 years, and it’s amazes me that we can continue doing this and make these shows bigger and better everytime we go back to a town.
