In 2007 songs were comin' out of me faster then I could pee. At the time I was in a band called 'Wigum'. I started recording solo material cause I thought it would put peoples ears to good use. Unfortunately going into the last song of my main bands album, I had blown a fuse in my mind. I had went X Files... For a year plus my TV was my friend and my room was my world. This album actually documents my demise into madness. I feel very lucky to have some special people in my life. I found strength through love and I'm very grateful for it.
Reviews??? **Head Tilting**
I don't have any reviews from anyone or place that I guess would be considered professional. All I have is random people telling me things.
I get a lot of love for the album but I also get weird looks. I have friends and fans excited and telling people about the album but I also have some people close to me that want nothing to do with it. I can only imagine that they would feel weird or ashamed to pass it on and show their friends. But that's life man. It's not always pretty. It's not always what you want to hear. I always try to be real in my song writing and just tell my stories. That's awesome if people want to hear it and that's cool if people don't.
If I was to give myself a review I would say I could probably use more confidence in my vocals and that I'm proud of my guitar work on the album. Had an awesome Producer (Johnny Cosmic) that didn't feed any BS. He has a different approach to music then I do, i feel. So for me it was really cool brain storming over songs, writing songs and just have another set of ears through out the whole process. We didn't always agree but who does? Bottom line is that our goal was to put everything we had into every song that we felt MIGHT be worthy of your ears. and I wouldn't be here typing this if I didn't feel that was true.
To everyone and every thing

Most common compliment from fans:
The most common compliment I get from fans would be, people giving love on the guitar solo's/licks and riffs. Next would be production quality.
The album cover was painted by Alan Streets. He has a documentary out on him called 'My Name Is Alan And I Paint Pictures' Its about his journey and how he went X-files.
