RUN-ON SUNSHINE

Today I had a peanut butter and banana and jelly sandwich for lunch. It was messy and delicious and it stuck to the roof of my mouth and bled all over my hands as I wrested with it. Afterwards, I had to wash my hands and face just to make sure I wasn't going to be all sticky, despite licking all the jelly drips off...only to find little resilient sticky spots after I had sat back down.Even later into the day, when I had washed my hands twice, I found a bit of red preserve stuck to my arm. ...And the funny thing is, I actually find that to be a lot like...eating a sloppy sandwich. 
...What, you thought I was going to make some dumb analogy about Lifer resilience or something? Dude, get over it. It was just a fucking sandwich. Go read a young adult fiction novel if you wanna wring overwrought meaning out of something so insignificant. 

...I'm sorry. I love you. Don't leave. Where are you going?...

You can walk out that door, but my memory will stick to your mind like Smucker's Strawberry jam!!!

...damnit. Here's an interview with Arizona's Run-On Sunshine:


One cool cat. And the feline's nice too.


Hello and welcome to the Richard Dreyfest blog. Who are you and what is it you plan on doing at Dreyfest?


My name's Mullarkey. I've played music with bandmates before in various projects, but this summer I'm touring the solo version of Run-On Sunshine. During my set at Dreyfest, me and the audience are going to dance, cry, and meow, all at the same time.


Taking a quick glance at your social media, I see a photo of you at a Blanks 77 show in ‘96- you are obviously a lifelong rocker! Can you give us a brief background of your involvement in underground music, including any big life-changing events that steered you in the direction you’ve taken?

Yeah, I guess I did see that band once or twice. I've been to so many shows that memories of some blur, while others stand out...like I can remember every detail of every time I saw Fugazi or Jawbreaker.

My involvement with music started purely as a fan. Then I began writing about music for magazines in Connecticut and Florida, as well as my own zine, No Bare Feet. Then I moved to Austin, then San Diego, and in those places reverted to just a fan. Then I moved to Tucson and went to so many shows that everyone in the town knew me for that. I'd promote a show occasionally if some band I loved and was friends with was coming through. Then after years of holding back my lyrics and song ideas from the public, I finally started being in bands when my friends gave me a chance. The first one was Monster Pussy. I had more songs than could fit in one band, so I started Run-On Sunshine, which has had solo a capella and duo forms, but now it's me making music on synth and percussion. Meanwhile, playing shows naturally went along with setting up more shows, so now I'm helping out touring bands any time I can, wherever I happen to live.
Some life-changing events along the way have been DIY fests like Brootal Sun Fest in Tucson and Indie 500 in Phoenix. I've gone to shows of all sizes and types over the years, but these days I'm almost entirely focused on all ages/DIY-DIT (do it together). That's where both the community and the best music is!
 
You also run a label, is that right? What sort of stuff do you release?
I created Cat Cassettes to have a label to release my own music on. Mostly it's still that, though some friends have also put the Cat Cassettes stamp on their tapes, like my friend Alex who's had a band called Hip Don't Dance and a brilliant solo project, Trochee Trochee. Me, him, and our friend Kim are in a band called Teen Planet. It would be cool to have more music on Cat Cassettes, which isn't a label with lots of money behind it, but friends just helping each other release their music.

Plus I've helped out at a Tucson-based label, Bloat Records, that has been releasing weird and awesome music since the 90s! 


You’re currently living in Tuscon, correct? What is your attraction to the place? Sun? Good Mexican food?

I lived in Tucson for 12 and a half years. I was attracted to it because it was like nowhere else on earth: the combo of an other-wordly desert and downtown that was pretty much entirely taken over by artists and music-makers. It's changed since, though the desert is still beautiful...money moved in and downtown is a lot more like lots of other places. Tucson, though, is still one of the nicest places you can be and there are great people and bands there. I moved to Phoenix in 2013 because I was ready for a change and it has the best music venue ever, The Trunk Space, along with all the great bands who play there and volunteers who make it possible. I'm happy to be helping out here while I can but I know the time to move on will arrive. I can only live places with warm weather year-round and tons of sun. Winter even in Phoenix/Tucson is too cold for me. So eventually I'm heading back to Florida...Tampa/St. Pete. 


Best moment for you last year?
Probably the second of the three shows I played with Teen Planet before my band mates moved away. I've mostly been a singer live, so it was such a thrill to drum in front of people locked in with my awesome band! That show was at The Trunk Space and included Bad Hex, Idaho Green, Priests, Psywave, and Tk and the Irresistibles!
 

If you were a sandwich, what would be on you?

Lots of avocado. Plus tempeh and many vegetables. 


Star: Wars or Trek?

A hard choice as both have a place in my heart, but I'd have to go with Star Trek because they have Leonard Nimoy, possibly the coolest person ever. And George Takei! 


Are you more prone to boredom or having too much to do?

I always have too much to do. Between my full-time job, my volunteer work, and my music, I've overwhelmed. I never get time to read books any more, which is sad and I hope to get back into that some day. Any free minute of time, I can find 100 ways to fill it. 


Favorite Richard Dreyfuss movie:

I had to do some research. I could say The Graduate, as wikipedia tells me he had an uncredited role in it! But I'm sure you mean movies where he had a prominent role, so I'll go with Close Encounters. 


How can we hear your music and learn more about you?

If people want to know more about me, they can ask! run.on.sunshine@gmail.com

NO CIGAR

Four days of 85 degree summer heat had made me very thirsty, so one day last week, instead of napping through the hottest part of the afternoon, I wandered into a nearby speakeasy and had a drink. Wary of the hot tar and burger smell perpetually wafting around outside in the hot months, I stayed there into the evening, then into the night, and then got kicked out, and then hung out in the parking lot, and then passed out in the parking lot, and then got ran over by a leaving patron, and then went to the hospital, and then was released (something about a sprained toe not warranting the doctor's time) ... At 7 am, I decided I should probably get a pita or something, and actually made it to Rimrock Mall...where I realized they don't have pitas. 

Wacked out, exhausted, and starving, I met a Cinnabon worker who told me he'd let me have two Minibons if I got rid of the annoying guy who had been hanging out there all day, ordering one item at a time and making critical assessments of each product aloud, as if anyone nearby actually gave credence to his opinions. I sensed the greasy young man's wish to be heard by an audience and approached him. After stroking his 10 day old neckbeard in thought, he agreed to interview Billings' No Cigar for the blog (the condition being that he had to go home immediately to do it), so he hiked up his ridiculously oversized pants and toddled out. The Cinnabon guy thanked me and even threw in a Tropical Blast Chillatta! Below, you'll see an interview with No Cigar, conducted by Dustin "living reddit" Waterson.



There's nothing more frightening than thinking you're taking a photo of an empty park at night,
only to see this staring back at you when the flash goes off


Umb, hello, good sirs. (heavy breath) Would you please introduce yourselves for our audience? (breath, breath)

Zach:  I'm Zach.  I sing and play bass.  
Nick: I'm Nick. I sing and play guitar. We have two other members... Colton(drums and vocals) & Chris(Guitar and vocals) They don't like interviews... or were busy... or don't check their emails...


Dow, I hear you are a very active band. (breath) Can you tell us about what you’ve been up to this year? (slightly heavier breathing).

Zach:  I spent most of the last year not working and playing video games.  I think the other guys were writing songs and being productive.
Nick: Indeed, we have been writing new songs, making  new videos, playing shows, and bugging people on Twitter to listen to our music. 



(labored breath) As sombeone who enjoys cloaking thembselves in black, I amb referencing my adult extra-large duster, I also happened to notice that sombe of you like to wear black often. (breath) Is there a particular reason for that choice?

Zach:  I have several reasons for wearing black:  I have a white cat, so it's a good way to get myself covered in very visible animal hair.  I am messy, so it's a good way to hide stains from food and garbage.  The color also gets pretty hot in the sun, so it's the perfect way to stay sweaty and smelly all summer long.
Nick: Pretty much what Zach said... and Johnny Cash.



Umb, dow, I do believe I saw you in concert last year and you had the MASH themesong playing before you took the stage. (breath) Being an avid television, Netflix, Hulu Plus, movie, Amazon Prime/Instant Video, youtube, vimeo, cloudload, itunes, googleplus, vudu, epix, crackel, vines watcher, I was well acquainted with the song. Why did you choose that particular theme? (breathing, breathing, breathing)

Zach:  I'm pretty sure Nick had that all picked out to start the set before anyone else even joined the band.  He's a big fan of the show I think.  I think it's old.  And smelly.

Nick: Hahahaha



(breath, breath) I (breath) thoroughly (breath) enjoy the monster art (breath) that is on much of your (breath) merchandise and website. (breath) Whose work is that? (breath)

Zach:  AJ Ostlund did that...right?  I think? 
Nick: Yes, AJ did all the "Monsters" artwork... and any of our good logos, posters, etc... AJ probably did those too. All of the "ehh, at least he tried stuff", I probably did. 



(breath) Minimalism (breath) or maximalism? (breath, breath)

Zach:  Yes?
Nick: I'm probably somewhere in between. 



(breath, breath, breath)Umb, what is it(breath) that keeps you in Montana ?(chip bag crinkling)

Zach:  I have no desire to live anywhere else at the moment. 
Nick: Family, friends, work... low population density...



(munch)(breath)(munch)Umb, dow, (breath) if you all had to pick one way to die, what would you pick, and, umb, (breath)(munch) why?

Zach:   My way to die would be grow old at a very low rate over 10000000000000000000000000000 years.  Because I'm afraid of dying.
Nick: Refer to the minimilism vs maximilism question. Quick and painless leaves no time to prepare... long and drawn out sounds painful and sad... 



(doritos munching)
Urmph, sombeone told me that you have sombe exciting things coming up. Could you endlighten the readers?


Zach:  Fall tour; going west and down the coast.  Something like that.  Hopefully some more songs sang by me, since I'm the best.
Nick:  Denver Underground Music Showcase in July, Magic City Markers Anniversary Party on July 31st & of course Dreyfest in August. We did end up on a free compilation cd by Rise Or Die Records featuring 50 bands from 50 states. It will be passed out at Warped Tour dates across the country. That's pretty cool... oh yeah, and another self-booked west coast tour in the fall.


(breath) Dow, do you all have some (Dorito flecked cough) links you’d like to share?(chip bag crinkling) 

Zach:  You can check out my world record speed runs at https://www.youtube.com/user/zachblasterson1
Nick: www.nocigarmusic.com We're pretty much on every social media site ever. #nocigarus



Umb (pant, pant), dow (breath)...umb (breath)...(wheeze)I, umb ...(increasingly labored breathing)...I think I may be having a heart attack, (breath, breath) so I may have to cut this interview short, my apolo-




And with that, Dustin collapsed. We rushed him to the hospital, where the ER doctor warned me that "this better not be another toe sprain" but I pointed him in Dustin's direction. As it turns out, he had inhaled quite a bit of the Code Red he was drinking, and the doctors had diagnosed it as a new form of pneumonia! Dewmonia. 

...No worries though, he recovered just fine. And then died of a real heart attack the following week.



SEE YOU AT DREYFEST!

GRANT ATTICUS



Grant Atticus: his guitar playing abilities are amazing when you
consider the size of his right hand


Solo Missoulaian Grant Atticus is a long-time musical Montanan and a proud beagle owner. He stopped by Big Sky Sub Rosa (*PLUG* a local music podcast out of Billings *PLUG*) recently, and did his interview in audio form! He also played a song so you can preview what he'll be doing at the fest. His segment is the first 13 minutes or so, and the rest is some good tunes and bullshitting with the man, the myth, the legend: Billy Luetzen, formerly of Minot's Pangea House and Father, Son, and Holy Smokes! and currently of Pink Tower, if you feel like checking that out too. Follow the link to hear:

BULL MARKET

If you followed last year's posts, you know that we regrettably did not have enough time to interview all the bands that played. We really don't want that to happen again, so this time we enlisted some help. This interview was conducted by my 16 year old cousin, Martin. He just got into punk, and he is REALLY excited about it. Like....uh.....REALLY excited.



BULL MARKET IS A BAND THAT'S REALLY FUCKING LOUD AND THEY PLAY SOME WEIRD TIMES SIGNATURES SO SOMETIMES IT SOUDNS FUCKED UP BUT LIKE A GOOD WAY OF FUCKED UP. I SENT THEM SOME QUESTIONS AND THEY SENT IT BACK TO ME FO R THE READERS TO ENJOY. THEY ARE FROM MISSOULA AND PLAY TRUE PUNK ROCK. 




BULL MARKET!!! WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU???
 We are three guys who like to play loud music—Phil Griffin (me), Dan Redinger, and Jordan Finn. We’re stupid assholes, especially Jordan. He’s like, smart, but really really mean. Phil and Dan are stupid though.


 WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND WHY ARE YOU EVEN A FUCKING BAND???
We’re all from Bill-ville. Dan and I now reside in Missoula. Jordan lives in his newspaper van on the Yellastone outside of Billings. We’re a band cuz we want you to aurally suffer. It all started when Jordan and I got into “noise rock” or whatever—METZ and Pissed Jeans, mainly. We love how heavy those dudes are, and wanted to do something similar. Dan joined us in the last several months, and it’s been great. Dan gives a solid HJ.


FUCK
riiiiiiighttt


WHO CARES??????
Well, I don’t know. I’m not sure that I care. Do you care? Maybe I care. Nah.


?!?!?!
Google it. Or maybe ask Jeeves. Remember Jeeves? Jeeves treats a fellow well, ya know. Gives a mean HJ, Dan likes that a lot.


ASK JEEVES???? MORE LIKE ASK ME TO FORGET THE EARLY 2000S MOTHERFUCKER!!!!
Dark times, man. Dark times.

No band picture provided


BUT SERIOUSLY, WHAT THE FUCK?
(What the fuck kind of interviewer are you, man??)
I think it has something to do with the beans. Have you checked the beans? May also be the paper—you got the Hammermill Fore Mp White Multipurpose 11x17, right? But seriously it’s probably just your shitty interviewing skills.


WHAT IS UP WITH YOUR SONGS?!?!?!?
They’re loud and stupid. We really try to make them smart, but they just come out stupid. Kind of like you, Mr. Interviewer.


DO YOU WANNA FIGHT!?!?
We have a fighter in the band, Joe. He’d love to fight you. Knock your block off, as they say. Don’t think you could handle it though


YOU ARE TOO LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A wise man once said, “If the music’s too loud, you’re too old.” So suck it, you jaded dinosaur


HOW ABOUT SOME FUCKING PIZZA, SHITBRAINS?!
I’ve already got some, thanks. I always keep a spare slice in my jawns, just in case. But fuck, I’ll take some ‘za.


FAVORITE PLANET: Pizza Planet. The journey’s totally worth it.


NO, REALLY THOUGH, NEPTUNE FUCKING RULES!!!
NEPTUNE’S NOT A PLANET AS OF LIKE 5 YEARS AGO. NASA SAYS SO. PIZZA PLANET.


WHAT THE FUCK CAN WE FUCKING EXPECT FROM YOU WHEN DREYFUCK HAPPENS???
Face-melting, gut-busting, ice-cream-cake-eating RAWK. Plus lots of chafing ;) Maybe some KY.


WHAT CAN WE FUCKING EXPECT FROM YOU IN FUCKING LIFE?!?!?
We hope to have fun. That’s about it. Any way to have fun, we’ll do it. Necrophilia? Why not. Freebasing pizza? You bet. Talk to Kelly La Croix? Well, I’ll try anything once. And then I’ll try it again, just to see. That last one probably sucks though. Maybe if he gives Dan an HJ we’ll talk…. I’M YER DAD.


FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
You. These questions suck







Ok, well, uh...thank you...Martin. And Bull Market. For uh...geez. Just uh...thanks. A lot. for that.


SEE YOU AT DREYFEST!

CAGED BIRD SONGS

Haiku about band
Caged Bird Songs for Dreyfest blog
sounds like this here stuff:

Scream like your lungs want 
out of your body to fall
to the floor bloody

Now relieved frame limp
and crumpled like leaf from tree
Caged Bird Songs set me free FUCK SIX FUCKING SYLLABLES I WILL NEVER MAKE THIS WORK WHO THE HELL TAKES POETRY AS A COLLEGE COURSE ANYWAY HOW MUCH DISPOSABLE INCOME COULD I POSSIBLY HAVE TO WASTE ITS NOT LIKE I'M GOING TO BECOME THE NATION'S LAUREATE OR ANYTHING I JUST WANTED AN EASY A BUT THIS IS PROVING TO BE WAY MORE DIFFICULT THAN I CAN HANDLE OR EVEN HAVE FUCKING TIME FOR SHIIIIIIIIIT!


NO GODS, NO MASTERS, NO CHAIRS.


Hey hey hey and welcome to the Dreyfest blog! Please introduce yourselves and say what your favorite color is for the class:

James: I'm James, my favorite color is red.
Adam: I’m Adam, my favorite color is blue.


How long have you been a band, and is this your first band??

James: We have been a band for almost two years. This is mine (James), Adam, and Nate’s first band. Kevin and Jake have been in a ton of really cool bands. Including stoic. and Out of Character.


I hope you guys are not tired of this question: are you named after a Maya Angelou poem/album?

James: Hahaha I don't think we've ever been asked this question actually but I’m sure a lot of people assume so. It is an amazing book but the name just kind of came as a metaphor for feeling trapped in a small town, and I just liked the redundancy of Hot Water Music’s name (before I learned that was after a book as well) so we added 'songs' to the end.

Adam: I actually just read I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings a couple months ago, but we didn’t choose the name because of it. It is amazing though.


According to Facebook, you dudes are looking for a new drummer. [Read in a concerned mama tone:] "Will you be alright for Dreyfest?"

James: Oh we'll be fine. [Read in a comforted sons tone:] Adam is moving from guitar to drums, Nate is moving from bass to guitar and Andy from Old Sport is playing bass. It's really great playing with super talented people that know multiple instruments so when changes need to be made we don’t lose any momentum.
Adam: Yeah Dreyfest will actually be our first show with this new lineup. Andy is the best for helping us out in our hour of need.


Last December, the sales from your release Dead Pursuits were donated to the Ferguson public library and the St. Louis Food Bank. What moved you to do that? Have any of you been involved in charitable activities before?

Adam: Initially, the things that moved us to do that were the same things that just about everyone was feeling at that time. I felt really upset and disenfranchised after watching what happened in Ferguson and New York, but I wanted to contribute in a way that was more constructive than just saying “Fuck Police” on our Facebook page. When I saw that Driftwood Records was setting up a donation drive, I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to get involved.
In the past, CBS has tried to be involved in as much of this as we can. I organized a benefit show with Cole from stoic. and Niko from Medicine Bow last year for a local home for youths in the Laramie community, and that was really successful, and something we were all really proud of. Right now, CBS has a brand new song on a compilation aimed at raising money for the Women’s Foundation of Nepal, a group that is working closely on earthquake relief over there. As a group, we’d really like to do more of this in the future, and we’re lucky to be surrounded by so many talented people that care about making a difference.


You guys toured with stoic. last year. What's the relation between your bands and do you have any touring plans for the coming year?

James: Jake, our outgoing drummer, and Kevin are both in stoic. Sharing members with stoic. makes it logical for us to team up and share touring expenses but we also feel like it makes it harder to differentiate the two bands to each audience. That being said, I'm not too certain how many more tours we'll be doing together.
Adam: At one point we were planning to tour with them this summer, but now we’re going to stay home and get some writing done. Those guys are our best friends, and stoic. is an amazing band. We’re lucky to have been so intertwined with them.


Aside from your own band activities, what are you excited about for the near future?
James: Hahahaha
Adam: Well Kevin just graduated nursing school, so I bet he’s stoked on that. I’m about to start my last year of college. Band stuff is pretty much the most exciting thing in our lives.


What are some genres, or who are some specific artists, you listen to regularly, but have not informed your music?

James: I just listen to podcasts and Counting Crows.  
Adam: I listen to a lot of rap. The first NAS record is probably one of my favorite records ever, but that doesn’t really inform what we do at all, and I don’t think it’s something I would ever create.


If you were to commit a crime, what kind of crime do you think it would be?

James: Animal liberation.
Adam: Yeah that would be pretty cool.


If someone was interested in learning more about you guys, what would you suggest they do (good spot for plugs, if you want)?

Adam: Check out our bandcamp or Facebook, and definitely check out our new song at benefitfornepal.bandcamp.com. There are 50 bands on the comp and all the money goes to a great cause, so even if you hate us it’s still worthwhile!





They did not provide
the links to their resources
so here you go folks:



...I don't even know 
how to do a syllable 
count on those...links...there

I DID IT!!! World, say hello to Mister Doctor Richard Dreyfest, PhD!



SEE YOU AT DREYFEST!

WHITECATPINK

Folks, we have all kinds of great stuff falling into place for this year's festivities. Before we get into it, though, we'd like to announce the beginning of Dreyfest interview season! 

First up: a curious mammal got in touch with us about playing on the 2015 roster via email. The message was entirely in "meow"s. Not knowing what to make of it, we decided to message back, only to receive another meow-filled message. Signed with a paw print. Certainly this was a friend joking with us. ...As it turns out, no. We asked the...uh...person?...to Skype with us so we could communicate in a more fluid manner. What we got was as confounding and wondrous as anything that has ever happened to the Dreyfest organizers. ...And some of us have licked toads with a mouthful of  nutmeg, so you KNOW this was craaazy!


Here is our Q & A with WHITECATPINK!



Is this furreal?


Hello and welcome to the Dreyfest blog! Please tell us who you are and what it is you do.


I am the legendary WhiteCatPink, originally from the planet Saturn, and I am an audio-visual blend of Serge Gainsbourg, Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, and Ziggy Stardust.  I play drums and sing while running automations that I have created in Ableton Live.  I do this dressed as a 6'4" White Cat, and my lyrics are sung variously in English, French, and, more rarely, German and Russian.  I am pleased to be a part of Dreyfest, and I plan to bring the party.


In your bio, you say you've been White Cat in WHITECATPINK since 2007...can you tell us about any of the changes and development that have occurred since that year?

Since then, I have gone solo - I used to have a full band, but one of the founding members suggested that I try to work something up with Ableton, so I taught myself how to use it.  I have since developed and created the ability to be a self-contained unit, having fashioned an electronic box which houses a vocal processor, wireless microphone receiver, small mixing board, and the ability to run a PA if necessary.  In this way, I do not have to rely on anyone to create and process my work.  Much like Kling Klang studios in Düsseldorf, I work to develop new and exciting sounds for the world at large.  I have worked with various musicians since I have gone solo, but the way I want the music to sound and the way I have structured it is rather demanding, and I rehearse hard and do not like to jam and fool around.  I do not drink, smoke, or eat meat, so my channels to the Great I Am Supercomputer XIX are clear and open, and I do not like to have my time wasted.  Hence, it has proven easiest in this band to be solo.  My sound has also changed, as you can imagine, having developed greater proficiency in Ableton, and I have a bit more of a Krautrock feel (read: NEU!, Kraftwerk).  So, I am not just a spotty fellow dressed in a catsuit playing drums...


More on your bio: you list Serge Gainsbourg as a prime influence. Does WHITECATPINK have a Jane Birkin or Brigitte Bardot? A muse? An ingenue?

That's a tough question, because I have had many muses throughout the years, but I'd say my Jane Birkin was the blonde girl kitty in the indoor photo session with the white background, who has taken a place as the iconic 'three girl kitty' WhiteCatPink logo as seen in the cover photo of my FB band page.  My Brigitte Bardot was a Russian model who became a girl kitty for me a while back and was a subsequent lover for a brief period, after which, in classic nonchalance, she walked away, leaving me devastated, much like Serger when Bardot left him to reunite briefly with her ex-husband.  Nonetheless, it is better to have loved and lost rather than not to have loved at all, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. 


Have you been back to Saturn since you've been living in Denver, or are you stranded?

Fortunately,  I am able to travel quite easily with my telepathic half-binary spacecraft between Earth and Saturn, so I visit both places regularly.  One must be careful of the asteroid belt, though.  That can be a bit rough!!


In the mind of WHITECATPINK, what would your crowd ideally be doing while at your shows?

At my shows the crowd should be dancing and having the best time of their lives.  I strive to make connections with my audiences and to let them experience moments and have their lives altered in some positive way.  I want people to leave a WCP show thoroughly inspired.


Will this be your first time in Montana? Are you sightseeing at all- Yellowstone maybe? Or are you touring through or planning on hanging for the fest?

This will be my first time in Montana as WhiteCatPink, but I have visited your beautiful state in my human form many times.  I am planning on doing a short tour that will end with Dreyfest, and I plan to hang out and see all of the great music!


What are your feelings on dogs?

I surprisingly get along quite well with dogs.

How can we learn more about you and your music?


You can learn more about me and my music at these websites:


I look forward to participating in Dreyfest and thanks for the great questions!






Thanks for answering them, WCP! 


See you at Dreyfest!
