I know that it has been a LONG time since I have sent out one of these emails. This has been quite a year for me. I bought a house, got engaged and my first FACES of MUSIC book is getting closer to being published. In a whirlwind of blessings, I haven’t had much opportunity to be on top of my social media as much as I would like to be. I did start a couple of blogs, one for I SHOT CHAD, which is my photo blog and then one called, THE LIFE OF MY BRIXTON, which is about my new house, my soon-to-be-wife and my obession with Brixton products… Please go checkout those blogs to see what I have been up to, meet my fiance, Jessica, and see the house that we will soon call our home.

I will also take this moment to do a soft opening for my new WEBSITE. I am still adding photos and projects, but I would like you guys to be the first ones to view it. Thank you all for your support, it means a lot.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
