Thank You For Supporting “Cognitive Dissonance”

It’s been a long 30 days, but we did it. Cognitive Dissonance is now in production with real drums, guitar, bass, and even a real piano this time. We’re just shy of netting 200% of our original goal, but… we’ve still got room to grow. It’s Slacker-Backer Time I’ve already heard from a few people

Help Me Make a New Album

It’s time to bring Cognitive Dissonance to life. For the next 30 days, I’ll be asking you to help make the next album happen. We don’t need much— just $3,000. The last time you helped me release an album, it broke $9,000 in less than a month, so hopefully we can at least get over

Lizards, Summer Camps, Officers, and New Shows

It’s been weeks since I’ve played a live show, and I’m getting itchy. Time to fix that with two appearances and a live stream! Officers-Only Webcast – This Thursday! Every month I chat with my loyal Officers Club about stuff. Secret stuff. Also, I make noises with a piano and a mic. And there’s beer

And now another one just for my Officer’s Club… Tennessee Never Cried! Back in 2004 when I wrote this, I actually hoped to find a local string quartet I could borrow to play behind the piano.
