Cutting them Rough

So wow it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything on here. Life has changed for Kari and I since the last time we’ve spoken. Jackson Dean Garcia has blessed us with his presences and I have to say I know now what the meaning of genuine instant unconditional love is. (I have proof...
EP D-Day (Got Southern?)

EP D-Day (Got Southern?)

So the EP is finally done. A few weeks ago I got a master reference disc to give a hard listen to. After a few minor adjustments and tweaks a new master reference disc was made and given another listen to as well. I’m happy and sad to say it’s finished. Seems as though this...

Making Americana and Babies

So wow what can I say it’s been a while since my last post. Today is exactly 4 months post-op from my back surgery and I have to say I feel pretty damn good. The foot and leg are still somewhat numb but the back pain is strictly back aches and is a complete 180...
"When it rains...it pours"

“When it rains…it pours”

As they say when it rains, it pours but when we’re in a drought the rain doesn’t seem so bad. Sometimes it’s hard to see the silver lining on things when the situation goes from bad to worse. Considering all that has happened in the last few months from loved ones passing  and to latest...
Love in the time of morning sickness and back spasms

Love in the time of morning sickness and back spasms

So I’ve been bad about updating the blog lately but I have to tell you this last month has been a trying one and we are glad it’s over. As some of you might know by now, my lovely wife Kari is pregnant and is about 7-8 weeks at the moment and as hard as...

“No Worries…No Regrets”

So the rpm challenge did not come to fruition for me. I did indeed get a handful of song ideas and at least two full songs out of the challenge but this month was a trying month for me emotionally and physically. I’ve been battling an ongoing fight with a backs spasm due to prior...
10 songs 1 month (more like 19 days)

10 songs 1 month (more like 19 days)

I found this song/album challenge thing via a friend of a friend Emily Shirley ( Check out her album “Tiny Truths”). I read about it a few days ago and was a tad reluctant to sign up for it due to some family issues happening at the moment but realized this was exactly what I...
Snow Day Video (not exactly)

Snow Day Video (not exactly)

So due to inclement weather here in San Antonio the city shut down and work was canceled for the day.  South Texas and ice don’t fair together very well. In fact signs that read “Watch for Ice on Bridge” are up year round around here. Apparently the year round subliminal message of “hey, stay off...
Last Tracking Day

Last Tracking Day

Tracking of the last song was done on the Jan. 22 2011 and just in time to use some of Dan’s new gear at the studio. As usual we started the session around noonish and worked well into the night ( we took breaks). Once again Dan was pretty gracious enough to let us stay...
New road for 2011

New road for 2011

Being new to the whole blogging experience we tried our hand with tumblr, which was great but didn’t allow us to really tweak things the way we wanted to. So we’ve taken our little bit of online real estate over to wordpress and I have to say it’s been a challenge but it’s been working...
Wedding Singer

Wedding Singer

[Flash 10 is required to watch video] So this past weekend was the last of our weddings for the the year. Prior to this weekend I had been asked by close friends to play instrumental guitar pieces for the Stahlmann, Cox and Killion weddings. It was my honor and pleasure to participate in each and...
Maru Blocked

Maru Blocked

So we headed out from San Antonio to Austin this weekend for a quick pre-production meeting with Dan. The plan was simple, pick up Dan early, head over to Maru and eat some specialty sushi (J-bombs) that Kari has been dying to eat for the last few months. The J-bombs are amazing, so amazing you...
