When Consequences Come to Drive Away

When Consequences Come to Drive Away

This is the first time we’ve ever played “When Consequences Come” before a live audience, at least that I can remember. I don’t know why it took so long… it’s a very personal song and it seems to resonate with a lot of people. I guess I was worried that I couldn’t come up with

Matthew’s Throat vs. The Evils of Commerce

Matthew’s Throat vs. The Evils of Commerce

It’s a cruel, double-edged sword, this convention thing. On the positive side, I get to meet all kinds of cool people wearing cool outfits and wielding cool props. On the negative, every dealer’s den (or sales floor, etc.) is the same torturous shout-fest no matter which convention I go to. Anthrocon‘s aircraft-hangar-sized room is by

The Best Days Of Our Lives

There are those for whom the best days of their lives were their teenage years- high school, summer break, all the romantic crap that John Mellencamp and Brian Adams sang about in the 80’s. Then there are the rest of us whose high school years were made a living hell, mostly by that first group

I Can’t Solder (In Bed)

You know you do it, I do too. You end every fortune cookie with a given phrase: …in bed. …except in bed. …with animals. (My old church youth leader taught us that one, actually.) Here’s a new one for you: Yet. There’s a huge difference between “I can’t do that” and “I can’t do that

Autotune: Spawn of Satan or Delicate Tool?

Autotune: Spawn of Satan or Delicate Tool?

It’s 2013. Autotune has happened and we all have to live with it. For some artists (Swift, Spears), it’s the only way they can do a live show without being booed off the stage. For others (Counting Crows, Dylan, Petty), autotune would have destroyed the very sound that made them unique. In the 90’s, lip-synching

I Wish I Were – Live at FWA 2013

I Wish I Were – Live at FWA 2013

Imagine, if you can, the future as prophesied by modern action thrillers. The holy texts are movies like Demolition Man and The Matrix. Nicholas Cage is a prophet. Society, apparently, is fucked, but at least the music is still good.

My First Audiobook Performance, Now on Podiobooks.com

My First Audiobook Performance, Now on Podiobooks.com

If you’re following my Tweets at all, you’re probably already aware that I’ve been doing an Audiobook series for new author Richard L. Sanders. Honestly, I’m loving these books, but you know I’m a sci-fi nerd, so it wasn’t much of a stretch. Political intrigue? Starship battles? Secret Agent Space Werewolves? I’m totally there. If

My Wish List for Pandora Radio

My Wish List for Pandora Radio

You know I love Pandora. It’s what keeps me sane on car trips, long set-constructing days, or pretty much any time I spend not listening to NPR. I also love the fact that my music is being introduced to new people every day without having to spend a fortune on radio promotion. That being said,

Cancer Cannot Silence The Creative

Cancer Cannot Silence The Creative

Will You Light My Way Today I learned that the woman responsible for extending my vocal range by an octave or better has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. My father sent me an article from the local paper about a benefit concert- tonight -for Marge Halvorson. I haven’t spoken to her in years, but the

The Last Pirate – Live at FWA 2013

The Last Pirate – Live at FWA 2013

Some piano rock, some thoughts on the modern destruction of the English language, and a gang of rowdy pirates. What more could I ask for?

How Twitter Can Help Your Storytelling Skills

If you weren’t there at FWA 2013, you may have missed the fact that I told the entire story of The Lives of Dexter Peterson between songs while on stage. The concert was scheduled for 90 minutes, but at least an hour of that was all music and applause breaks. How the heck was I

Downloadable Video Coming Soon!

I’ll be updating the Matthew Ebel dot com Store to include downloadable videos soon! So far the only inventory I’ve got are two FWA concert videos, one from 2010 and one from 2013, but as we shoot more performances I’ll put them up there! People keep asking if I’m going to release another DVD. Seriously,

In The MUCK – Live at FWA 2013

In The MUCK – Live at FWA 2013

I opened the show with this one and, somehow, managed to make the audience do my bidding without saying a word. Ahhhh, the power!

Bike Multi-Tool

My Six Must-Have Items for Biking Season

I know, ski season isn’t dead yet! But it certainly is fading and it’s time for this piano rocker to change his choice of personal speed enhancement. I’m obviously ruling out rocket boots and motorcycles, opting instead for my favorite terrestrial conveyance on this planet: the mountain bike. We’re about to host a little bike

Top Ten Ways to Get and Keep Twitter Followers

Top Ten Ways to Get and Keep Twitter Followers

Any time you need to promote something, send an @ to everyone you’re following. It’s best if you send it to three or more names at a time so they know it’s a personal message. Bitch at people who unfollow you. That’ll guilt-trip them into following you again, and this time they’ll think twice about
