Hi, there! Hope you’re doing well. Can you believe half of 2016 is already gone??? At the beginning of the year, I made a list of things I wanted to accomplish this year. I wanted to take a look back on what I had my sights on at the beginning of the year and see […]
I met up with Ray Rocket and his son Milo before the Fat Wreck Chords showcase during SXSW 2016 in Austin, TX. I talked to him about his new solo record, playing shows in Mexico and Teenage Bottlerocket’s first shows after the passing of his brother Brandon. Follow Mike Deestro!

SXSW is here! It’s my favorite time of year to live in Austin. It’s unlike any other festival because your experience is what YOU make it. The are over 2,000 artists playing showcases all over the city. You have bands playing pop-up stages, record stores or even right in the street! And for the most […]
I wrote this song after getting my wisdom teeth removed. I was binge watching The Walking Dead while on pain medication…and then something unexpected happened so I wrote a song about it! This is me performing it live in the studio!

He’s my favorite rappers. Not does he keep me wondering what he will come out with next…I hang on to every word he has to […]
What do you do after just getting 6 teeth extracted??! Well, if you’re me..you pull out your phone and start interviewing yourself. Haha. I vaguely remember riding home in the back seat of my car. I was able to piece it together thanks to this video! Overall, not as bad as I thought EXCEPT I […]

If you’re like me…you’re still a little bummed out after binging “Making A Murderer”. I’ve spent the last couple weeks going back and forth on how I feel about that documentary. I almost want to watch it again to see if it ends differently the second time…(NOPE!). I also made the mistake of watching a […]
