Social Media

Here are the links to my social media pages, where you can keep up on my latest news and ramblings, tell me what you think, and otherwise do all that social stuff without actually having to leave home.

FacebookThis is where I hang out the most since I spend way more time on my computer than my phone. This is the main place to follow me if you don’t want to miss a trick.
InstagramI’m pretty much a total newbie here at the moment, but I’m trying.
TwitterI mostly post show and new music announcements here. I’m not big on sound bites.
YouTubeMy official YouTube artist channel. You’ll find both videos I’ve posted over the years, mostly from live performances and a few “official lyric videos”, and audio-only (“album cover”) videos of my released music. Subscribe and hit the notify button if you’d like to be notified when new videos show up. (I’m not exactly prolific.)

News, Shows, and Ramblings

You can always find the most recent three news items and blog links, along with the dates and venues for my next three live appearances on my home page. If you’d like to dig back further on the blogs and news, or look ahead further for show dates and locations (or see a list of past shows), here is where you can find that information.

BlogThis is the place to find my latest (semi-)formal ramblings, be it stories behind a song or recording, thoughts on something going on in the world (especially music-related), or a recap of my year (or half year or …). It’s also the place to find all those old historical ramblings, dating back to MySpace days.
NewsThis is for brief news announcements, such as on new singles or albums, noteworthy uses of my songs and/or recordings, etc.
ShowsThis is where you can always find the latest list of upcoming shows, be it open mics, showcases, or full-length shows. For shows other than open mics, it is generally updated shortly after a show is confirmed. Open mic dates for any given month are usually added by the first of that month. There is also a link to past show dates here.

Licensing

Interested in recording one or more of my songs for your own album, or licensing one of my recordings for use in your film, TV show, on-line video, or ad? Here are some links that may be helpful.

SongsIf you’re interested in recording one or more of my songs for an album or single, be it on CD or for digital distribution, you can check out songs and demo recordings here. Once you’ve found songs that interest you, please use the Contact page (see below) to inquire about mechanical licensing.
Songtradr.comSongtradr.com is a convenient location for licensing select recordings, and the underlying songs, for multimedia (e.g. film, TV, games) uses. Instrumental versions of those songs, and even their stems, can also be licensed. Find the song or instrumental cue that interests you, fill in the relevant forms to let Songtradr know about your uses, and they will follow up with costs and the relevant synchronization and master use licenses (for the songs and recordings, respectively).
ContactThis is the place to make an email inquiry about song uses not covered by Songtradr. Just fill out the form with the information on your needs, and we’ll get back to you via email.

Facts, Figures, and Miscellaneous Stuff

Looking for more information about me, such as biographical information, songwriting and recording credits, what toys I use in the studio, etc.? Here are some resources for that and more. Need something else that hasn’t been covered here? Please feel free to send an email via the Contact page.

ArticlesThis is an archive of music technology articles I wrote for the now defunct CakewalkNet ezine between 2002 and 2009.
BioThe About page gives a relatively short synopsis of my musical career.
CreditsThis page provides a detailed list of songwriting and production credits from 1998 through the present.
Equipment and SoftwareIf you’d like to take a gander at the extent of my music and audio software addiction, this is the place.
RecordingsThe Store page provides an organized list of my own recordings, including some you won’t find at the music links above (e.g. if they were on a compilation album or were listed under another artist name). It provides links to some of the most popular digital music stores where you can find each album, EP, and single.
Russian InterviewDon’t worry, the interview at the link is actually in English, though it was originally published in a Russian translation since it was conducted by a Russian music technology company. While this interview is pretty old (from 2010), if you’re interested in more information on my musical background, thoughts on the music industry, etc., this is a pretty in-depth interview, and some things never change.
