ALBUM????

Not quite! I wish that was all I had left to do to make this album a success, but I still have a lot of work to do. Read more about it below. 


Behind the Album and My Upcoming Gig at The Bowery Electric 

The time is drawing near for me to wrap up recording for my debut album, (Still Trying to Find a Title). At this point the only thing I have to left to record are vocals, which I'm really stoked about because I get to sing!

 But, there's still much to be done to make sure this album is available for anyone, anywhere in the world, and is something that I can be proud of as a whole. Here's my checklist of things I need to complete after mixing and mastering are done (in no particular order):

  • Pick A Title for the Album
  • Register My Songs with a PRO
  • Create Album Artwork for the Album/Single
  • Choose a Distributor for the Album 
  • Pick a Single(s) 
  • Shoot A Music Video for Single(s)
  • Create a Social Media Plan for the Album Release
  • Release Single + Music Video to the World
  • Plan a Album Release Party (That's a whole 'nother blog post!)
  • Set Up a Tour (This one too!)

I'll be doing all of these things simultaneously of course and with the help of my friends too (AND YOU)!

Is there anything else you think I should do? Comment below and tell me what you think! 


What are you doing Wednesday, May 6th? I know it's a couple of weeks away, but I wanted to invite YOU to come to The Bowery Electric for a 30 minute set with my full band! We go on at 9:45 and the Bowery is bound to be bumpin' (tongue twister!).
