New Music!!

August 22, 2014

So I started a bancamp page using the band name: Darth Brooks, loved the punnyness and all, but turns out I wasn’t the first, and although it didn’t seem to matter, I decided to make a change, and go with my backup name for the time being: Naturally Occurring Sheep. But anyways, long story short, you can now stream, and even buy my music without getting off of your ass. Soul Windows was very fun in process, and I’m very satisfied with our current end result. And for 50 cents how can one go wrong?

Let me know what you think, and if you love it, just get yourself a copy that you can bring everywhere. 🙂

Playlist time: A number of things I like.

January 24, 2014

I asked her what sort of theme she wanted for a mix cd, since I’m all about trying to make songs fit together well, no matter what they are.
