new song & video > devils carousel

This song came about some time back – and even though I had the melody and chorus straightaway, the words took longer than usual. The video was shot in the spring of this year with Kenneth (Billy), Lisa (Temptress) and my dog Jeb…Kaylee my daughter helped with the make-up (a smashing job there too I might add). There was a lot of great footage that never made it to the video, Kenneth and Lisa were superb. It was my first time working with legit acting pros, and they were amazing – and on that note – thank you so much for your efforts Kenneth and Lisa I hope you are happy with the end result!

This is a song about vicious circles… with a lot of strange electric and natural effects, edgy & primitive drums, wah wah, hypnotic bass and my first ever full vibrato (which happened by accident on the outro)…you’ll hear it as the last thing sung – and I have no idea how I did it. On another note I have had several licensing syncs take place with other music in the first quarter of this year on National Geographic, The Fashion Network, Spike and VH1. Good stuff. I have included different options on downloading below, along with that is the usual video stream in flash. First up audio only stream

between the holy and the sleazy
but billy keeps diggin and drinkin and dyin
one fine day I hope and pray he will know

    Very cool song and video. The ending is creepy. Kind of a Blair Witch vibe.

    re DC; yeah I had a lot of folks asking what was up….but technically, as a product of the imagination (music and video) it’s made up…right?

    re b_ cheers – she is convincing….creeps some folks out actually

    really digging on the video brother! Tis been a long time coming. You got some nice shots in there and I like the concept. Also – great casting. A little bit of a creepy video I must admit…but nice shots. Also – the song is legit. I thought the sound and tone of the song fit well with the imagery. Dig it.

    thanks again bro.
