The latest blog is up and ready for you at:

The new blog is about my history with the Fender Rhodes piano.  This is part one of two.  It’s the most detailed blog yet.  It includes a fantastic story (literally), mp3s of classic Rhodes sounds (yes, I recorded them), and incriminating photos from the 1970s (that’s not hair, that’s a shrub).
As always, please subscribe while you’re there.  It helps, thanks.
In honor of the Rhodes electric piano and it’s jazz heritage my special merch offer for August is:
Arc of the Circle (improv music with Jeff Coffin, Marc Ribot, Derrek Phillips)
Love Press Ex-Curio (jazz w/Ravi Coltrane, James Genus, Kurt Rosenwinkel)

Both CDs for only 10 dollars.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is send a PayPal payment to cwilliamashworth@mac.com.  Any questions?  Send email to the same address. Free shipping.

Let's Get to the Heart of Things

"Music is our everything; we live and die for it. It’s our way to be human, so making songs that make that deep human connection is really important for The Used." In a new age of releasing music in a socially-distanced world, Bert McCracken and The Used face the challenge of human connection when physical connection is taboo. HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
