Several months ago, my band Rin Tin Tin applied for a showcase at the legendary SXSW in Austin, Texas. Naturally, they turned us down and I immediately made arrangements to attend as a spectator.

I will be heading to Austin tomorrow and will be staying with my friend and his family. Being young and poor, we'll definitely be hitting up all the free shows in town.

However, I saw this as an excellent opportunity to share some of my solo stuff. So I will be bringing my guitars along and playing in the streets. If you're in the general Austin area this week, you should look for me.

I love you

Track Listings

So last night I began working on my latest song. I hope it turns out as well as the others, but it's gonna take a lot of work. I'll explain the recording process in a later post.

However, I decided its time to reveal my track listings. There will be a total of 5 songs on The Bill Murray EP (although, since I'm not done recording, I'm not sure if it's technically an EP yet.)

The titles and orders of the songs will be:
  1. "Hey Mary" 
  2. "Oil Slick"
  3. "Stutter Sickly"
  4. "Box Springs and Quiet Dreams"
  5. "Surfer's Hymn"
I understand that the track listings don't necessarily mean anything to anyone other than myself at the moment, but once I've finished and made the songs available for download, I'm hoping that  the songs  will take on new meanings for other people.

I need some input though. When I'm done recording and I've finalized all of the tracks, I have to decide how to distribute them. Of course iTunes would be the most obvious option, but I'm not sure if I feel comfortable selling my songs, or if I did sell them, would I even make enough money to offset the cost of distribution.

I'm not opposed to the idea of making my songs available for free download and I almost prefer it, but some methods of free distribution can be confusing (although I'm sure I can find a simple way to do it.)

What do you think?

Also, for new readers, I've posted two of my songs in older posts. Check them out if you haven't! Love,
