Last year, writer/director Royce Williams discussed shooting a horror/thriller short with a voodoo aspect to it, and he talked to me about being cinematographer for it. It’s now public and available for viewing. Check it out on YouTube.
(When you get to the credits, you might recognize another name. The score you hear throughout the film was done by Shane Gillis of Foolish Henry Films, who scored both Death to the World and Spiritus. If you haven’t heard his new album Portal, then be sure to check that out on his Bandcamp. It’s really good.)

OK, but for real, the Druid City Songwriters Festival posted the lineup today, and you should check that out. I’m really looking forward to performing at this and seeing a lot of the friends I’ve made at the Joe Thomas Jr. Guitar Pull over the years.
In other news, Chris Eckels (bassist from Abusements) grabbed some video footage from the debut Barrens show last Saturday. Here’s the song “Concubineapple.”
And this coming Saturday, April 21, I’ll be performing my solo material at Bomber’s Pub, opening for The Murder of Jane Crow, from Birmingham. (See, there’s the “Murder” from the post title. I didn’t leave you hanging.)

As confirmed in February, I am in a new band, and that band is called Barrens and features Jiggly J. Slickwood (12th Hour, Breaking Aim and the Rhythm, Flip the Switch, Neon Liars) and Clay Smith (Flip the Switch, Neon Liars, Born Enemies, Ballswag.)
Our first show is this Saturday, April 14 at Bomber’s Pub in Montgomery, AL with Happy Lemmy (Birmingham) and our friends in The Last Thing You Remember. Starts at 9pm. Details here.
You can find us on various social media platforms – @barrensmusic.
Saturday’s show is part of the Against the Grain “Scene Saturdays” music series.
In other news, I made some minor tweaks/updates to this website, mainly updating the About, Music, and Film pages. Look around, click some links, and use the Contact page for hate mail.
I hope to see you Saturday.
I recently got the opportunity to write and direct a spot for Seville: The Basement Cuts, a temporary location for the Seville salon staff. It was a fun shoot, and they allowed me to go a bit experimental for a salon ad – going with a film noir/thriller vibe.
