With no small amount of pride, we released Windhaven’s first full length album of original material, “When The Winds Blow”, this week. It’s been a long, frustrating road to get to this point. Writing and recording the music for the album was one of the most intense, nerve-wracking and ultimately satisfying projects I’ve ever been… Continue reading When The Winds Blow – Released
I posted Windhaven’s new song, “Ten Feet Tall” last night. I’m really excited about the song. It’s a great “toe-tapper” (Victoria thinks it’s sort of Rockabilly), and should definitely be something we can use to build some momentum for Windhaven. I was a little apprehensive this morning when I got up. It’s always frustrating to… Continue reading Doubts, Goals And Feeling Ten Feet Tall
Windhaven has posted it’s first video on YouTube. It’s our cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit”, set to the popular Star Trek mash-up that’s been all over YouTube for years. We hope you’ll enjoy it. I’m going to be whipping up some more videos for some of our originals in the next couple of weeks,… Continue reading White Rabbit And Star Trek

I don’t often write about people who have died that aren’t related to me. I think the last such person I wrote about was Les Paul. But a man died on April 1, 2010 that I thought I should mention, if for no other reason than to show my respect and appreciation to an individual… Continue reading A Belated 'Thank You' To Ed Roberts
They wouldn’t let me post a comment on the original article page, so I thought I’d drop it here. The article had to do with whether people were entertained or shocked by Adam Lambert’s performance on the American Music Awards. Mostly people were complaining that the “shocking” theatrics and simulated sex acts were too much.… Continue reading The Adam Lambert Fallout: Were You Not Entertained?
I just wanted to extend my heartfelt congratulations to Robin Rogers on her recent win as best female artist in the 2009 Blues Blast Music Awards. And congrats, as well, to her husband, Tony Rogers, who’s an old friend of mine, and who also contributed a lot to what makes Robin’s music so note-worthy. It’s… Continue reading Congrats To Robin Rogers – 2009 Blues Blast Award Winner
I’ve been thinking a lot about music lately. Why is that even while playing in two different bands, I still feel like I’m not getting anything out of my efforts? Musically, I feel kind of like someone who’s lived on energy bars and Gatorade for years. I desperately want a meal that I can sink… Continue reading Backup Memory #5
We hit the town last night and spent the evening at Dave’s Aqua Lounge (which is quickly becoming one of my favorite dives). It was July 4th! Who could sit in the house on July 4th? Okay, so I wasn’t as enthusiastic about leaving the house as I could have been, but when am I… Continue reading Rebel Pride & Blind Buddy Moody
Victoria and I headed downtown last night, having pretty much made up our minds that we were going to see Les Claypool at Jannus Landing. I’d never heard of the opening act, Matisyahu, and could have cared less that we got there after he was already playing. When we arrived there were still tickets for… Continue reading In The Vicinity of Les Claypool
