Kaleidoscope EP1: Infinity Mirrors

So here it is. The first three songs which, I hope, will evolve and join other songs to become my fourth record Kaleidoscope.

Enjoy!

2019 Plans

TRIALS (and the remix companion, TRAILS) was a great success, and I sold nearly every copy. Imagine my surprise when the new album started writing itself … so album number four is underway.

I’ll be releasing EPs with early versions of the songs from the album. Each will see release on the solstices and equinoxes, starting with this year’s Winter Solstice. I’m very excited about the songs already in the works, and I think you’ll enjoy them too.

2019 will also, hopefully, see more shows out of town (back to Kentucky, I hope, and a return to Indiana/Illinois).

More soon. Onward and upward!

2018.07 | Tiny Tour dates and A VIDEO

Plotting out my first (of many) Tiny Tours. I’m coming to visit you on the following dates:

  • September 14th (Friday) | Indianapolis, IN – TBA
  • September 16th (Sunday) | Louisville, KY – OPEN Community Arts Center

With any luck, I’ll be visiting Chicago on 9/15, but we’re still sorting that out. More news as I have it!

Another thing of interest is a video for the single remix of “Lifeboat”. If you’re viewing this on a desktop, you should see a player to your left somewhere. Otherwise, you can just click this link.

2018.06 |What next?

The few months after the ‘victory lap’ of releasing an album are always a little weird when you’re doing it all on your own.

I had a couple things in mind months ago. First off, I knew I wanted to spotlight at least one more song from TRIALS, so I picked “Lifeboat” as a lot of people have been vocal about their enjoyment of that tune. I did a remix of it and put it up on Bandcamp with some fanfare (honestly could have promoted it more and will, still).

My other plan was to solicit remixes and release something of a companion to TRIALS. I decided this midway through making the albums. It is called TRAILS (see what I did there?) and it will be released sometime in the near future.

I played three shows in June around town for the hell of it (one of which was an electronic presentation to support my friends Evil English). Those were fun.

And then it dawned on me that I have never really toured my own material. Not beyond a couple weekend jaunts in Arkansas. So I’m currently booking what I hope will be the first of many “tiny tours” – picking three places away from Memphis and making a long weekend of it. My choices for this first round are St. Louis, Chicago, and Lexington (KY). I’m happy to say Lexington is booked, and I’m really excited about that!

So yeah, that’s that. I’ve gotten probably 2/3 of the material for TRAILS in, and I may make a short run of CD-Rs for the tour in September.

That’s what’s up in the air at the moment. I’ll post those tour dates soon.

2018.04 | TRIALS Unleashed

TRIALS is out! Click here for lyrics.

I got to stop in to Radio Memphis and talk about the album for almost an hour, which was loads of fun. I checked in with Shangri-La and Goner and made sure the CDs were out, and talked it up to everybody (and their mother).

Tomorrow night is the CD Release Party. Mayor Strickland declared April 14th “Lucero Day”. I’m not knocking them – they’ve worked hard and are loved – but that’s going to make for a busy part of Midtown (and wouldn’t you know, Move the Air is in the middle of it?)

Eh, it’ll be great. Or at least the process of releasing the album will be over.

2018.02 | TRIALS

TRIALS is finished.

It features contributions from my friends and occasional bandmates J.D. Reager, Josh Stevens, and Eric Wilson, along with guest appearances by Kathryn Brawley Suda, Robert Poss (Band of Susans), Cat Hall (Dissonance), and Nina Miraj (Coke Weed). I’m very excited to share it with you and will let you know how to get it soon.
