Welcome to 2012. This year is going to be a good year, I think. First off, I would like to let you all know that our album “Normal” will be released nationally on this Tuesday, January 10th. The time has come for the world to know what it is like to be “Normal.” (pun intended) We’ll be hitting the college radio airwaves as well as press outlets, you know, the works. Watch out.
If you didn’t know already, we’re on a label, our own label. It is called Hearts & Plugs. It currently features Run Dan Run, Mr. Jenkins, & Ashley Hopkins. We’ll be releasing our first sampler in a month or two that will be entirely free and will feature songs from everyone included a few exclusives. I’ll keep you up to date on that, in the meantime, be sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, & check out our Youtube. We’re all very excited about what H&P will be doing this coming year.
I recently had the opportunity to pen a few articles with Scene SC as a guest writer. It was one of the coolest things I’ve gotten to do through my music celeb status I chose to write about my recording mantras as well as my favorite gear used on our album Normal. Please enjoy my words of wisdom, especially if you record your own music
Notice I like to use smileys? :*
Also, we’ve gotten a few great reviews lately that I’d like to share; We Are Unseen, Consequence of Sound, Baby Sue, Impose Magazine (top albums, #9), Charleston Scene, & Independent Clauses (listed in top 50 mixtape).
And one last thing, I’d like to encourage everyone to check out our close friends from Columbia, The Lovely Few. They just released a new album titled “The Perseids.” It is a lovely LP centered around the Perseids meteor shower. Check it out and if you like it, please consider purchasing a copy. I can’t stress enough the importance of supporting independent musicians. Your support has a direct influence on the creation of more good music.
Thanks for keeping up with us. To 2012!
