Scoring “Larkspur Underground” podcast

Visitors to my Music page know I’ve produced many tracks for multimedia. Theme songs, spot cues, drops/bumpers, etc. However, the closest to a complete score that I’d recorded was for my 2006 short film Featurette, clocking in at a mere 19 minutes. Then came an opportunity to compose for a new serialized horror podcast called LARKSPUR UNDERGROUND. We’ll get […]

“Songs I Wrote in the ’80s” music video

This one takes my previous video, “Antidote,” to the next level: a logical progression from studio to stage. Enjoy! Special thanks to Pat Redd and School of Rock Overland Park. Trivia: • The song itself was inspired by Jason Webley (troubadour accordionist extraordinaire). Late into one of his shows, when taking audience requests, someone shouted […]

Finding the Light album released!

The day has come! Finding the Light is my first commercially released album. It was a total DIY production crafted over the course of nine months, with me writing, performing, and mixing every track in my home studio, whose songs form a loose theme: the fall and rise of a musician. A music video at […]

“Antidote” music video

With my Finding the Light album release this week, I figured I should preview a full track. And in the same spirit as the recording process, why not keep the video DIY, too? Trivia: • Self-shot with a single GoPro on a gooseneck clamp in my Womb With a View studio. • This was the […]

Album cover revealed!

Here it is! She’s a beaut, eh? The artwork comes from the illustrious brush of Boden Steiner. He said the concept originated in my song “Costumes,” which is a nostalgic tune that’s partly about kids auditioning different personalities (“trying on costumes”) and figuring out what kind of people they want to become. The album’s larger […]

Finding the Light – album preview

Now that Finding the Light has been mixed and mastered, here’s a six-minute sampler with a little from each track. Intrigued? I’m anxious for you to take the entire 50-minute journey, because so far only two people have heard it: the mastering engineer and cover artist (the only two roles I delegated). My next post—very soon—will […]

Important Question? podcast

What would convince you to eat another human being? This is our first topic on a new must-listen podcast: Important Question? where we explore and debate such taboos with the profundity and absurdity and hilarity they warrant. Ensuing episodes will examine other grey areas soaking in our collective grey matter, like, I dunno … ruining […]

Solarcidal Tendencies

This anthology contains my short story “‘Burgatory” originally published at Solarcide a few years ago, but which has been offline for a while. It’s about a life-insurance salesman facing his mortality as planes of the multiverse collide. From the publisher: Visions, plagues, angels. A different view of the miracle of birth. Bestiality farms, departing souls, […]

Major Inversions audiobook

Remember my debut novel from back in 2009? Ever wanted to cut out the eyeball middlemen and have the author’s voice streaming between your ears handsfree? Of all my fiction, Major Inversions made the most sense for an audiobook treatment because: • it’s written in first person, so the entire narrative is “in character” • […]

LitReactor Community Spotlight

I’m the focus of this month’s Community Spotlight over at the excellent LitReactor, profiled by Jessica Taylor. The main topic is Submission Windows, my shorts collection, but the interview also delves into the art of sequencing compilations, poetry, and the differences between writing for the short versus long form. LitReactor is one of the most […]
