hello there! it’s been a long long while and i’m sorry about that. it’s a new year! i’m working on a lot of velvet crayon related things. i’ve strayed for a while working on side projects (which will be posted online this spring) but now it is time to get back to velvet crayon!

sneak peak of some of the things in the works. i am going to be playing shows again! yes, you heard me right and the first one will be on march 17th march 24th @ jr’s bar in south philly (more details coming soon – the line up is still being confirmed).

i’m also getting back to recording. there’s a few definite velvet crayon recording projects that are going to be released before the summer. one is a full length titled “ampersand imperfecta”. another is an ep that was recorded last year while i was stuck in bed and it’s called “room 1227b, silverstein”. mr adam x. storm helped release that on cassette tape which will feature a free download of the ep. another release is going to be an ep of velvet crayon playing heatsleeve songs (heatsleeve rocks!). there may be some other projects as well (maybe the childrens album-as an ep? maybe a live album?), we’ll see.

also, there is going to be a major overhaul of velvetcrayonDOTcom so that you will be able to download every velvet crayon release! promise!

that’s all for now.. oh, i guess i should explain the reason for the image above, well, i am going on a grand adventure to the lovely state of illinois for a little over a week to visit some friends and such. i’ll take lots of pictures and probably post a bunch on here. going to try to bring an ukulele so i can write while i’m out there.

i’ll try to update more and even post a song before i leave on my trip. cheers!

it looks like there are going to be a few velvet crayon releases this summer (a few eps, maybe a single/ep and most likely a full length). one of these releases is going to be an ep i recorded while i was stuck in bed with a broken leg (titled: “room 1227b, silverstein”). this is going to be put out by myself & adam x. storm on cassette tape (which will include a digital download.. and someone said something about velvet crayon baseball cards?!? whaaaaa?)! more info on the tape release & other velvet crayon releases coming up real soon! yeah!
