MUSIC TATTOOING BEEKEEPING

The last year “plus” has been a blur to say the least. Between the learning/writing/recording process of Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred (Metal Blade Records) with Twitching Tongues and the touring that followed the release of that album, as well as learning songs and getting prepared for touring with Wear Your Wounds following the release of the self titled album which lead to the “Live at the BBC” album (Both released via Deathwish Inc.)… I guess you could say that a lot has happened since the summer of 2017.

In between the music and touring, the majority of my time was/is spent tattooing at the “World Famous” Brass City Tattoo

In hindsight I really can’t get over how fast everything went by and how much ground was covered in that time, and although there were DEFINITELY moments that seemed to drag by and feel like they were the WORST of times (as there occasionally has to be), I still can’t wait to see what this next year brings. As I write this, Wear Your Wounds is gearing up to head into the studio and begin recording the second LP, Twitching Tongues is set to play a couple of shows in the early winter months and will be getting weird in the studio sooner than later I assure you, I’m currently working on material for a record with Dylan Ross and I just finished bottling this season’s batch of honey. As for tattooing, you can catch me at Brass City Tattoo most Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays, so please feel free to stop in and get a tattoo or call the shop for an appointment.

I’m extremely grateful that I get to make music, travel, tattoo and keep bees and I’m thankful for everyone and everything that these things have given me in life. I’m also thankful for everyone who listens to the music, goes to the show, gets the tattoo and/or enjoys the honey. If any of the stuff about me mentioned above is new to you, follow the links and check it all out!

Until next time…
