On January 5, I released a three-song EP called Existential Crisis Songs.
A little background
From 1996 until 2000, I was in a band called Ego Booster. We were a three-piece band (I played guitar and sang). In 1998, the drummer and I (the bass player had departed) recorded a full length CD. After Ego Booster disbanded, I played bass in a friend’s band (Bi Janus) for a while before recording some demos on my own.
Then, shortly before the birth of my first child in 2004, I recorded one last song. It would be my last song for a decade…
It’s good to be back
Over the last couple years, I’ve been watching the calendar. I didn’t want a decade to lapse before recording something new. In late July, I dusted off GarageBand and my old Les Paul (seen on the album artwork), borrowed a Rocksmith guitar cable from Jeffrey Chupp and a bass from Michael Berkowitz, and broke ground on a new track called “All My Axes Are Exes”. On September 2, 2014 I released it to the world on Bandcamp and received just enough positive feedback to keep going. “Mountain” followed in late October and “Breakdown” was finished in December and released with the EP.
I’m not sure yet. I’d like to keep going. Will another EP follow? Will these three songs eventually make it on a full-length album? We’ll see. Thanks for listening.
I opted to go the full-length route. My new album YAY! came out on November 2, 2016.
