Aight… good news and bad news…

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first…

That show that I talked about in my last post, the one schedule for this Friday with Towering Above, The Cancellations, and Abusements… it’s canceled. Yep… a bunch of people have tested positive for COVID – the ‘Rona strikes again. Hopefully everyone involved has a speedy recovery.

So with that sadness out of the way, let’s turn to some good news!

This coming Tuesday, June 21 will mark the 101st installment of the Joe Thomas Jr. Guitar Pull at the Cloverdale Playhouse.

The Montgomery Advertiser ran an article about it – click here to read it – and in that article, they talk about the origins of the event and about the documentary film Commit to the Song: The Joe Thomas Jr. Guitar Pull (available on Amazon and Tubi.)

So, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, go check that out, and be sure to come to the Cloverdale Playhouse on Tuesday to see Megan Kuehner, Sonia Tetlow, and Senorita Awesome (all pictured below.)

Show this Saturday and ‘Live at Seville’ turns 5

Hey everyone! The Live at Seville EP turns 5 today!

If you want some background on this EP, here’s a link to the original blog post about it.

The audio version is on most streaming platforms, but the actual video performances are on YouTube. (This was a Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions collaboration with Terrible Master Films.)

…aaaaaaaaaaaand…

That being said, I’ll be performing this Saturday, May 28, 2022, at the Sanctuary in Montgomery, AL, opening for my friends in Tres Locos and The McRyatts.

And speaking of Tres Locos, here’s a promo video I shot for them awhile back in their hometown of Huntsville, AL:

Hope to see you this Saturday!

American Songwriter magazine features the Electric Blue Yonder ‘Mourning Sounds’ video

Earlier this year, Johnny and Beth from Electric Blue Yonder contacted me about directing a music video utilizing the set for a play called The Quality of Life that was at the Cloverdale Playhouse in Montgomery, AL.

That video, the title track for their newly-released album Mourning Sounds, is embedded at the end of an American Songwriter article that features a song-by-song review of the album.

The video is a Terrible Master Films production, in association with Carolyn Jean’s Son Visions and Early Riser Films.

New Glorious 70mm album coming Sept. 22

It’s been a while since I’ve released a Glorious 70mm album that wasn’t directly tied to a film or podcast. (Looks like it was back in 2015 when I did a collaboration with my friend Tequila Nylon.)

So… I’ve got one coming out on Sept. 22, the date of this year’s autumnal equinox, which seemed fitting since the new album is titled “EXT. SEASONAL IMAGERY” and has four songs, one for each season.

If you’re unaware, Glorious 70mm is my film score project that I began in March 2014, and sometimes I just make instrumental pieces to release, even if it’s not (yet?) tied to a film.

With this new release, each song is a little over 10 minutes long, creating an ambience that I thought fit the mood of each season. It contains a lot of synth, except for the song “Fall” which has a guitar-based background with piano over it.

It will be available Sept. 22 on the Glorious 70mm Bandcamp page.
