Announcing A New Piano Rock Album

I’ve mentioned the term cognitive dissonance in my weekly streaming concerts. It’s been my focus for the last year or so, ever since a friend mentioned it in a political context. We all suffer from it, no matter what kind of Zen master you think you are. Cognitive Dissonance: Mental stress experienced by an individual

Fake News, Robot Learning, And Mister Spock.

Time to start educating those who were duped by fake news NOW. Before it gets exponentially harder to spot. Last night Aaron and I ended up watching some old TNG episodes… specifically “Reunification”, the two-parter with Leonard Nimoy as Spock. 20-year-old-spoiler-alert: The entire plot hinges on a holographic fake of Spock. According to the Romulans,

How I Record Guitar Parts (Even Though I SUCK At Guitar)

I am not a guitar player, but I write a lot of guitar-heavy music. Instead of faking it on the keyboard, I try to record real guitar parts for my demos. HERE’S HOW I MAKE IT SOUND DECENT (even though I SUCK at guitar.)

The High Orbit Holiday Special

The Piano Rocker’s Gift-Giving Guide

I’ll keep this brief since it’s the first week of December and you’re probably already sick of holiday stuff. Seuss Day is just around the corner and, depending on what planet you’re from, that means it’s gift-giving season. I’ve thought up a few ways to spend your money wisely and not incur the wrath of

Here is the complete list of browser extensions, either released or in development, that will alert you when you’re looking at fake news, misleading stories, or outright propaganda:

Music Video: Epic Foliage

Aaron and I aren’t usually the leaf-peeping type, but with the amount of epic foliage in New Hampshire this fall we couldn’t resist. With a single GoPro and two motorcycles we traveled the back roads from Nashua to Francestown to Bennington and back. Usually we chatter away on the radios the whole time, but on

How NOT To Use Automation as an Indie Musician

(Or “A Guide to Managing Your Robots Responsibly”) Robots are a dangerous thing. It’s no secret that I love my robots. After all: time flows like a raging river in one direction, money is just this thing that surges in and out of your life like a tide pool. Automation is what saves me the

How I Cut My Stage Setup Time In Half

Audio snakes are available all over the place… but what if you’ve got more than audio? Here’s how I built my own snakes for audio, pedals, USB, Firewire, video, and more. This is how I cut my setup time IN HALF at every show I play. You honestly shouldn’t NEED a step-by-step how-to for this

A Letter to the People of Earth

So… that just happened. I am sorry, Earthlings, but we have failed you. We tried to warn you; we seeded every conceivable villain into the heads of your best writers. Not to make your entertainment better, mind you, but to prepare you for what evil looks like. There weren’t many templates to remember, but most

Dances With Robots

This is one of the most beautiful and inspiring things I’ve seen in a while. You know of my affinity for robots- I’m the type to say “please” and “thank you” to my Amazon Echo when I ask for things. But this woman has made it her goal to teach robots how to interact with

Why I Write

It’s National Day of Writing, and I was asked Why I Write. Quite simply, because my brain gets full from time to time and needs to be emptied. Why do YOU write?

Silence is Not Golden

It occurred to me recently that booking is the absolute worst thing a musician has to do. More than hauling a 75-pound keyboard onto the stage, more than constantly warming up and rehearsing and keeping the little throat-flaps in shape, more than moderating your liquor/smoke/coffee intake to protect those throat-flaps from damage, and even more

Yes, I AM working on a new album.

People have been asking me if I’m working on a new album or not. I don’t think the Earth rotates without me trying to come up with another musical project. Pretty sure if I wasn’t working on another album, you’d have heard about my untimely death by now. I’m not one of those songwriters you
