Blessing in disguise.
This is a new song for you all, this time with extra vocals by my good friend Rebecca Bortman
. It's called Blessing in Disguise, click to listen.
Rolo on NPR
well, sort of. The Amazing Rolo is now a featured artist on NPR's Open Mic, a "Web-only showcase for independent, unsigned or self-produced artists". I'm pretty excited about it, it's fun to see my picture next to the NPR logo. This is the Open Mic page.And this is the Rolo page,
in case the other link stops working.
Otherwise, I'll be posting new music and stories soon!
Here's a new song for you:The Amazing Rolo - Submission
The lyrics are mostly about submitting material to radio stations and record labels.
I've got a whole folder of half-finished songs on my computer, so hopefully more will follow soon. For the past week I've been quite busy on various projects, and soon I'll be back in Maryland getting ready for a show in Chestertown with my brother.
Taking a break.
I will, in all likelihood, be taking a break from blogging this week. I've been asked by the Carnegie Mellon ETC
to write original music for a six minute animated segment of a TV show pilot. And it needs to be done by this Friday! So that, as well as the movie project with Aurelia, will keep me very busy.
Otherwise, go Steelers! This town went completely crazy last night. Here in Bloomfield there was spontaneous dancing and embracing in the streets (photo by jonbro
). Down in Oakland I saw cops on horses and in riot gear, a car flipped over, and helicopters hovering. It made me remember why I like Bloomfield more than Oakland.
