Here’s a great photo of Chanticleer, Vince Peterson, and me!  On April 6 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Chanticleer gave an enchanting performance of our song “Cells Planets.”  To learn more about this event and the musical collaboration, check out this article from NYC Art Scene:

In more recent news, we’re currently putting together a new song demo of “Lovesick for the World” and another cover video.  I’ll be sure to keep you posted!

Until then,

Thurs Feb 10, 8:30p~ Premiering new music! Bringing back “Cells Planets” in honor of Chanticleer! FREE promo well drinks with cover!

I hadn’t even realized how well the lyrics of “Cells Planets” fit with the feelings of loneliness and disconnect, but excitement, while on tour.  The awesome guys of Chanticleer made a great video showing just that.  I’m so used to seeing them in their concert tuxedos- it’s fun to see them in their normal street clothes, sending messages to the people they love, goofing off together, and jumping on the bed! 

Check it out!

This is my first attempt at creating animation to further express a song.  Guess what… I’m hooked!  If you haven’t noticed, by the Little Grey Girlfriend Comic, I also love to draw.  I guess this isn’t quite animation, but I’m getting there.

If you’re curious about the images used or the meaning of the song, I wrote a pretty long description accompanying the video on youtube.  All of our song lyrics can also be found by clicking on an album in the drop down menu above.  “Shock Value” was released on our recent album, Green-Wood EP.

Chanticleer’s glorious version  of “Cells Planets” (arr. Vince Peterson) is now available for download at the Chanticleer Music Store!

Okay, so maybe it’s for underlying personal reasons, but I have not yet been able to listen to this without tearing up.  I challenge you to take a listen without getting very emotional!  These twelve incredible musicians have powers beyond my understanding, bringing the meaning of the song alive and reminding you of your exciting but vulnerable human existence.  Don’t believe me?  Listen to Chanticleer singing “Cells Planets” right here:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

By purchasing this track at the Chanticleer Music Store you’ll be supporting fantastic live music.  (See how I added the link again to make sure you click on it?  Ya, I’m that sneaky.)  If you’re short on cash, just check your couch cushions and the sidewalk in front of your house because the track only costs 99 measly little cents.

In all seriousness, I could not have even dreamt that this song would be performed by such an amazing choir.  Help me make even more undreamt dreams come true by supporting this collaboration!
