It’s Wednesday in August. Pardon me for a mid week update, but things are a bit busy on the video front and today I find myself with a little break from the action today.
Lots of little things are going on and I just wanted to give a little update.
First, thank you all for the recent comments on the “Stargazer” video I was involved in. I think as my Diamonds Hadder record dropped digitally a few weeks ago I’ve noticed a few more eyeballs on the stargazer video and I really appreciate the comments and thoughts. As some of you may know, I’m somewhat of an introvert who likes making art and records and not so much the art of being a social media person. I did recently make a new instagram page to mark the occasion of the record release and I imagine it will be a place I sometimes frequent as I create. I’ve noticed lots of new friends there @diamondshadder408 and I just wanted to say thanks again for stopping in and saying hey. I’m very humbled by the heavy metal community and always very grateful for any show of support.
Music Video: Well, I’m full gear into the new music video for “Long is the Road”. I have one guitar shoot left and then I start the final editing. I’ve been swimming in post production for weeks now and I’m almost turning that corner. This video is looking really cool and I'm fairly excited about it. Once it’s done, I hope to official do a proper record release here in the states. Might even go to active rock radio with “Long is the Road”. We’ll see. I am hoping for a video release in 30 days, fingers crossed. That gives me a little something to complete before my autumn pilgrimages.
Interview: I have an interview scheduled with www.rockpages.gr on the weekend. That should be a lot of fun. It’s my first real interview for the “Breakers” record. It seems the record has been floating around Greece as of late. That makes me happy. I know those people over there are true metal heads. Perhaps they’ll pass it around. I’ll try to post a link once the interview is available. Thanks Yiannis.
Bella: A little update on my girl Ezra, she’s had her second round of chemotherapy and although her spirits are a little low this week, she's doing ok. She’s one tuff girl. Rough few months ahead I imagine before I can take her to the hills above BOK again. Feel free to send prayers and love her way. She’s a real sweetheart.
Rehearsals: Rehearsals will be my autumn and winter endeavor. Just to many T’s to cross and I’s to dot before I can plunge fully into some live shows here in LA and abroad. However, I’m very much looking forward to getting out on the road in support of this record. After all, isn't that’s what this was all about in the first place?
Anyway, thanks for listening and following along. Dig!!!
