I have never met Ryan Adams, but he's obviously an incredible rock and roller and he got his hands on an advance copy of my forthcoming album I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll. I'm not giving up on his album Rock N Roll, though. It was super nice of him to shout out the disc on his Twitter and Instagram feeds. Follow him on Twitter and Instagram! And listen to the first single from the album below:
I also got some love from Vice.com's Noisey today, along with 9 other great Iowa artists! The truth is there's 90 more great ones not mentioned here! Come to Iowa! Let's be friends! Read the full article here!
Ok, today is an important day because I've just launched my first ever crowdfunding campaign! I am working to make a 2-minute movie musical to accompany one of my new songs, "Everybody Rains", which is featured on my forthcoming studio album I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll. Perks include copies of the album, the opportunity to be in the video, and a badass custom made puppet! Support the campaign now, if you can, or share it with others! Click here. It ends in one month.
Last month, I played a really fun fest in my hometown of Des Moines, Iowa called 80/35. QRO Mag was there and took some nice photos, check 'em out here!
And, as I do every week, I've updated my Spotify playlist. This is a big one! Everything from Shania Twain and Ariana Grande to Disney songs and Ween! Follow the playlist here, follow my artist profile here, and start listening to good music now!
I am real close to announcing a ton of shows for the fall, too. Stay tuned!
