Hey Roshamfam!

We have a lot to tell you but first we want to give a quick shout out to our monthly supporters on Patreon. These people are the reason we're able to start playing out again and release new music every month! Each month we take requests to learn a new song and film a performance of it and our Patrons help us decide. We couldn't do it without their support. So if you have a moment and $5 to tip the band check out our Patreon  below and join our awesome crew alongside:

Steve B, Nancy B, Nadia M, Renee T, Jeff C, James M, Andy K & Phyllis F!

LiveStream Concert SUN 08/01/21

We had so much fun last week unveiling some new songs from our upcoming album "Existential Threat," coming out in October! We're gonna do another live stream this Sunday. If you've watched the last two live streams on Facebook, you may have noticed we've had a few technical difficulties with the stream. We've checked our settings and we've determined that YouTube's platform should provide a smoother output.

You can watch the countdown to the show HERE  but the best way to not forget is to subscribe to our YouTube Channel and ring the bell. The show is FREE but will only be available live during the show but you can watch the rewind (along with past concerts) at anytime on Patreon. See you Sunday!

 

What's Up With J...

Been a busy week. Rehearsals, live streams, planning, repairs, and upgrades. But it feels good to finally be back in action. We are working on getting a few more shows on the books (Unplugged and full) and are working to balance that with what we have been able to do online via stream and Patreon while also staying grounded with plenty of self care time. This week I've started on prepping the new cover for this month and it's one neither of us had heard before from a very well known artist. Very excited to see how it turns out and we hope you are too. We've also decided to do another stream this Sunday. This time we will be doing it on YouTube so be sure to follow us over there if you haven't already. It's better suited for what we are trying to do and I realize that not everyone does Facebook. So this will be a way to make sure everyone who wants to tune in can. Let us know if you guys have any songs you'd like to hear us do this Sunday in the comments below. Something else else I'm really excited about is we are upgrading our PA system. We went in last week and traded in basically everything we could to earn some credit to go towards it and now we are patiently awaiting it's arrival so we can go down and pick it up. It's all been a bit much to juggle but exciting at the same time. Trying to remind myself to pace it out and let it flow. I hope you are having a fantastic week and can't wait to see you August 7th for our first full show back in over a year and a half. To anyone who reads this....I love you very much. -J

What's Up With Kyle... 

Hey Y'all! It's been a busy week! I've finished up the arrangement work for the next cover request video and sent the tracks over to J. J sent me a text asking for a "higher standard harmony" for one of the tracks and I thought he was telling me all the past stuff was awful, lol. I later realized he meant "standard" as in "what we normally do." We had a good laugh about it.

We've done a lot of upgrades to the live rig. I'm really excited for the live in person shows we have coming up. I'm normally a pretty introverted person and playing live always helped me come out of my shell. I've really missed it! I can't wait to see y'all!

We have tons of music coming out planned for the rest of the year. We're doing another livestream this week to show you a little peak on what we've been working on. It feels good to have things be fast paced again after this last year and a half. I think last year was a hard lesson in balance. One day I hope I'm wise enough to learn all my lessons the easy way but I think there is a certain kind of joy that can only be found on the other side of struggle. I'm grateful I get to experience it!

-Kyle

Fixing Stuff...

Last week we pulled out the live show 18'' subwoofers and ran a few tests on them. They've seen a lot and honestly have been pushed beyond what they were built for. We've determined that they need to be replaced. It's not always the best feeling when you have unexpected bills but it's a great feeling knowing we've grown beyond our live rig and need to make some upgrades. We'll let you know what we end up with! If you're into live gear, let us know which subwoofers you like. We love nerding out about live sound!

 

New Piano!

Our last live stream we didn't do any piano songs because we had to mix in the new piano and make sure everything was working. We're happy to say it sounds incredible! We'll be sure to play some piano tunes on this next live stream coming up this week!

 

Did You Miss It!?

On Tuesday we did a little impromptu live stream with some new acoustic gear. J got a few new pieces for our unplugged shows we have coming up. We had a few technical hiccups but we're happy to say they're resolved so the next stream should be smooth! We found out that Facebook only allows 30 frames per minute (so 60 makes it struggle). We're glad we've gotten that smoothed out. If you don't want to miss our live streams be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel and our Facebook Page! Our streams will only be available to view while we're live but they'll be available to watch at anytime on Patreon!

 

LiveStream Concert 7/25/21

Watch The Full Video of Roshambeaux's Cover of "Purple Rain," & Trailer for Their Cover of "Crazy!" 

Hey RoshamFAM!

Before we get to it, we just want to say thanks to our Patreon supporters. When we first started playing music together we'd hit up the local bars and learned play as many covers as we could remember. It always felt great when someone would put $5 in the jar and request a song we knew how to play. Now on Patreon, we've been able to recreate some of those moments from our roots every month with an exclusive performance video based on the requests of our supporters. It's so much fun and if we don't know it, we can take a little time to learn it. If you got a fiver to tip the band please consider helping us come up with the next cover video on Patreon alongside:

Steve B, Renee T, Nancy B, Jeff M, Nadia M & Phyllis F

Coming December 2021...

We finished filming our cover of "Crazy" by Gnarles Barkley this week. The video will be available on YouTube in December but if you just can't wait you can get early access right now, alongside over 13 other performance videos for just $5 on Patreon.

What's Up With Kyle...

I thought I'd try my hand in a video blog this week (or vlog if you will). We had so much fun jamming with our friends Jeremiah and The Bull Frogs last week that I thought I'd try a bluesy, jammy version of our new song Criminal.

-Kyle

What's Up With J...

This past week has been a lot of fun. Kyle and I got to join our good friend Jeremiah again for a jam gig. Kyle was on keys and I was on percussion. Highlight was definitely Kyle experimenting with organ sounds and at the end of one of the songs he hit a hard key expecting me to close out the song but I just couldn't stop laughing...lol. it was such a good time. Plus we were able to do a live stream this past Sunday. I think we may be bringing those back more on the regular. We had some issues with our internet speeds being throttled but we hope to have that resolved very soon. I actually just had them out here the week before.....our internet provider can be super frustrating. But like I said we will be trying to make them a more regular thing. Possibly, we will be bringing back our live van philosophy on YouTube as well. Just gotta get these internet issues resolved. Can't wait to be able to perform more and see you guys at the upcoming shows in August! Hope all of you are doing well and have an amazing week. To anyone who reads this...I love you very much. -J

We'll be unveiling a few tracks from the new album as well as playing some songs from our last two records.

What's Up With J...

Been spending this past week finishing up on our new cover video. I'm really digging how this one is turning out and by the time you read this it should be available or available shortly on our Patreon page. It's funny how in tune you guys are. It seems that every cover we've done has been a reflection of some aspect of where we are mentally that month. I am truly grateful for all of you and hope you enjoy this one. On another note I've finished all of my moving and settling in except hanging a few pictures. The new studio space is finally coming together. I am grateful for all these experiences life has given me. Change most of the time seems scary. But without discomfort it is sometimes hard to grow. I hope you all have an excellent week and hope to see you all this Sunday at our first live stream back where we will be playing a bunch of new stuff as well as some oldies. To anyone who reads this you rock my world! -J

What's Up With Kyle...

It was a lot of fun working on this month’s song request. Thanks Nancy for reminding me I really love this song. I hope we do it justice.

This song reminds me of wanting to be like my heroes and realizing they have struggles too. This old piano has seen almost 7 years on the road but this week it’s time to put it up to make room for its replacement. It’s a little bittersweet. Technology has come along way since I picked this one up and the new piano coming this week is an upgrade putting it mildly but it kind of feels like saying goodbye to an old friend. A lot of joy, frustration and tears have hit these keys. A lot of songs have been written. I feel a little silly, having a hard time letting go of this dead keyed, misfiring paperweight but it’s true. Do y’all ever feel that way?

-Kyle

Summer Tank Tops

Summer is officially here and it's getting hot, especially here in Georgia! This week we're unleashing some new tank tops to help you stay cool. We print our tank tops right here in Atlanta on high quality premium NextLevel material so the fit and feel is a cut above what you'd normally find at a concert. Take a look at our apparel store below. Shout out to Terminus Tees and StoreFrontier for helping us keep all sizes in stock and on demand! You guys rock!

See What Kyle & J Are Up To This Week! 

Hey RoshamFAM!

This week we've made some set up changes at J's home studio and are working on the next video cover request. We actually used to do this one back when we first started playing together so it's cool getting to reimagine it in a studio setting.

 

New Swag...

Last week we launched a new line of Summer Tank Tops and we think it hit just in time. It's super muggy this week here in GA so we're definitely rocking tanks this week (although, Kyle does pretty much all the time anyway).

Upcoming Shows...

We've booked some full shows and are working on adding more to the calendar. We're planning on staying in the southeast for our first run back but let us know where you want to see us. If we can make it work we will! Be sure to sign our mailing list at roshambeauxmusic.com/email-list so you don't miss show announcements. We'll even give you a free download just for wanted to stay connected.

 

What's Up With J...

I've been doing a lot of moving this week. We have set up a new studio space and are in the process of getting the room treated properly. Kyle was a huge help with moving everything last Thursday. We spent all day going back and forth and I am truly grateful for all his help. I'm hoping being in this new space can help inspire new ideas and motivate a new work flow. This months cover will be shot in the new space and I'm hoping we get to shoot that for you guys this week. With all the moving comes deep cleaning. I find something very comforting in getting things nice, neat and all cleaned up. They say cleanliness is next to godliness. But for me having everything cleaned up and organized helps me focus and keep my thoughts more organized. How is it for you? Do you like things clean or are you an organized mess kinda person? Let me know in the comments below. To anyone who reads this....I love you very much. -J

 

What's Up with Kyle...

Hi, my name is Kyle... and I'm sorry.

I saw this meme that was floating around on Instagram and Facebook that was a list of things you shouldn't say you're sorry for. I think I understood what the artist was wanting to portray but it kind of rubbed me the wrong way.

It seems like we're living in a society that is putting more value on self-care and self-confidence, which I'm very grateful for. However, I think some of those notions can be harmful when that self-care isolates us or causes us to ignore other people's feelings entirely. Saying "I'm sorry," is not an admission of guilt or wrong doing. It's not synonymous with, "I apologize." I imagine funerals would be really awkward if they were: "I heard about your Aunt passing... I apologize."

Saying that you're sorry means you're attempting to feel someone's struggle, pain, discomfort or inconvenience. We tell kids to say they're sorry when they've done something wrong but I think that's one of the worst things we can do. We can't command someone else to feel. We can only inspire them. Otherwise, we're telling ourselves "It's ok to be fake." It turns us into drones that say things like, "Let me know if there's anything I can do," or "I'll pray for you," with no real intent of lifting a finger. On top of that, making someone say they're sorry in place of an apology takes meaningful connotation away from the expression. In Spanish, if you want to say you're sorry you say "Lo Siento," which in English means "I feel it." Many times the "it," may refer to guilt but it's meant to be something more. The "it" is what the other person is experiencing.

We are by no means inherently responsible for other people's feelings but I think we make a better world when we choose empathy over selfishness. I think it's ok to say you're sorry when you've done nothing wrong. In fact, I think that's when it's most important. As a musician, I'm always trying to find a way to connect with someone I'm just meeting for the first time and with the marvels of modern technology, people I may never meet. It burdens me to see a culture that seeks to quietly strip away those very real and human connections in the name of standing up for yourself. Never apologize for being in the shower when someone calls. Never apologize for not meeting an expectation that is out of your control. Never apologize for speaking your mind in disagreement... but I think it's ok to say you're sorry for those things. I think it's ok to recognize other people's struggle even when those struggles just seem like minor inconveniences at best. Say you're sorry often but for what it really means. I think if we can do that, we can create a world where the need for apology is rare.

As you might imagine, this last year's been pretty rough for most musicians, especially indie musicians like us. We've gotten by by the generous support of our subscribers on Patreon. Patreon is a place where artists put out extra exclusive content that you can't see at a show or on social media. 

We started out playing covers in local bars so now on our Patreon, we've gone back to those old days by taking requests once month for new cover.

We've done everything from Segar to Prince to Counting Crows to Eagles to James Brown. Y'all have some crazy ideas! Consider supporting us on Patreon even if it's just $1. We'll give you a shout out every week in our blog.

What's Up With Kyle...

This week J and I have been going over our live mix for some upcoming shows. When we were on the road our live mix was often a lot of guess work if the venue didn’t have a sound engineer to help us set levels at sound check. However, those instances seemed less and less as we went along.

We’re only a two piece but we always wanted a bigger sound than just guitars and drums. With J’s electronic station he’s able to play bass and synth while playing drums. It’s a lot of fun to watch on stage but I imagine it’s pretty cool getting to sit back and watch him manage all that sound. I’d always tell he needed to do a song on his own so I’d get a break but honestly it’s was fun just getting to seeing him piece stuff together.

With all that going on it can be a huge headache mixing on the fly so most of our tech work has been making sure all the new songs’ instrumentation sits well with itself. It feels like we’ve recorded our live set 100 times this week tweaking everything (but it’s probably been more like 8 or 9). Everything is sounding really great! Can’t wait for y’all to hear it! We’re thinking about scheduling a live stream before these upcoming shows. Let me know if that’s something you’d tune in for!

-Kyle

 

What's Up With J...

This week I've been trying to allow myself actual R&R. I'm the worst when it comes to letting myself relax and truly not be tangled up in working on something. Even when I find myself not doing anything my mind is so occupied with thought and ideas and sometimes that in it self will cause me to not be as efficient when I actual do sit down to work. So I've decided that once a week I'm gonna do an Epsom salt bath and at least every other week I'm gonna do a fire. When it comes to the bath sometimes I forget how freaking big I am....lol. fitting a 6' 4" man into a small shower tub is a really funny thing to see I'm sure. But I make it work. Maybe one day I'll splurge and get myself a big enough tub and as for the fire...there must be something primary built into our brains to find comfort and relaxation by a fire. To just stare in the flames and think about nothing. It's truly one of my favorite things. Even when it comes to social fires. It's gotta be my top favorite way to spend time with friends and family. Sit around and tell stories, spitball ideas, or just be with one another. Do you guys have favorite ways to relax? What works for you? Let me know down on the comments. Maybe I'll give some of them a try. As always....to anyone who reads this I love you very much! Take care of yourselves even if that's just sitting by a fire for a couple hours to clear your mind.

Been hard at work trying to plan for our up coming stream, shows, and new record. I'm happy to say things are progressing nicely and can't wait to share everything with you. I've got one more song to finish putting my parts on and mix it. After that it's on to mastering. It seems so crazy how fast the time just flies by. But sometimes in the moment things just seem to come to a halt. I've been trying to make the best out of some other personal things that I've been dealing with and try and stay focused on the music. Music is the healer of the soul. Just try it sometime.....no matter how bad you feel or broken, put on a good song, turn it up, and push yourself to move to it or even put on something that matches that down mood and find a relationship and connection with it and realize this human experience is so complex and we as people are all going through or have gone through something similar. You're not alone, you're gonna make it, pull through, and overcome. Changes can be hard but as our inner battles rage on with our bodies desiring comfort and our minds pushing for growth, we will find balance. We will find purpose. I am so grateful for each and everyone of you who have continued to support us through these crazy times. Our only hope is that we can give you a little something to make you dance and know you're not alone. To anyone who reads this....I love you very much. -J

 

What's Up With Kyle...

I'm really pumped for the show this Saturday! J and I are gonna be playing some chill unplugged songs in Dahlonega. You can get the details in the Roshamfam Facebook group or by hopping on our mailing list at roshambeauxmusic.com/email-list

The new album is almost completed. I finished my pick ups last week. It's a great feeling! J's been hard at work mixing and we have one very new one called "Last Mistake," we've decided to add. It was kind of like that old fable, Gift of the Magi. I came into the studio with a motif I'd been humming and told J I thought I had a good idea for a song but I only had a chorus. J looked at me and said, "That's funny, I wrote some lyrics last night. It seems like a good verse but I don't know what to put it on."

It ended up being a strange fit. We were both coming from entirely different head spaces at the time but I think it's gonna be one of the realist songs on the album (at least lyrically). It's great when things like that click. I was reminded that it's important to lean on others and to surround yourself with people that help round you. You may not have what it takes on your own but I think that's part of what makes life beautiful. We're all a piece of something. I don't claim to understand it and when I'm honest with myself, I don't think I'm meant to yet I feel it's there just the same.

Don't stress when you come up short. It can turn into something beautiful if you let it. Being incomplete is a part of who we all are.

What's Up With Kyle...

We're in the pick up stage of completing our upcoming record. Pick ups are when we comb over anything we may have missed and re-track anything that's needed before mastering and sending it off for distribution and print. 

Last year, we released a single called, "Neighbors." Reviewing for pick ups, we noticed a little hum in the vocal tracks so we've decided to re-track them before releasing this album. While "Neighbors" is most likely the simplest song that we'll be on the record, it's been the most challenging for me vocally. It's funny how that works. I was really happy with the original takes and was a little stressed about recreating them line for line. 

When we record music we're not trying to capture notes and emotion, we're capturing a moment in time that includes all of the emotion, struggle and lessons we've learned up until that moment. I struggled a good bit this week trying to recreate a moment from almost a year ago when we first wrote the song. After a whole day of tracking, I wasn't happy with it. It sounded forced. It sounded dull. It sounded like I was singing but I wasn't there. I finally came to realize that, that moment was gone. Frustrated, I left it alone for another day.

The next day I decided that I'd sing the song in the moment: not trying to recreate that "perfect" take but singing it for what it means for me now. I'm happy with it. For me, I don't think there is such a thing as the perfect take but I do think that there can be honest ones. I know not everyone records music but I hope that you'll find a way to not worry about perfect moments when they cost real ones.

This next album is called "Existential Threat" and is the summery of our lives as full time musicians over the past few years (and what a few crazy years it's been). I can honestly say it's my best work and I know J can say the same. Look for Existential Threat Fall 2021. I've gotten a few full shows on the books to pair with our album release and working on adding more. We'll announce where we'll be as Fall approaches. If you want to know what those dates are sign our mailing list at roshambeauxmusic.com/email-list and you'll be the first to know!

What's Up With J...

This past week Kyle and I were able to rekindle some old feelings of just playing, having a good time and jamming with friends. We are super grateful for our good friend Miah for inviting us out to join him and a few others to jam for a wonderful group of people by the river. It was such a pleasure to be able to see some old friends and to be given the chance to just jam some tunes. After the show we all hung out, shot the shit and Kyle and I both were shown some hula hoop tricks. It's crazy how long it's been for me to have the opportunity to just be in the moment and enjoy the company of others. It's such a blessing that we have one another to share in this crazy experience of life. All of us on different paths, battling different things, a sum of all our own personal experiences. But still able to share in a sense of community and support. I truly am grateful for this life and all it's complexity. I hope you can also find a sense of gratitude for the little things. I find that most of the things we consider "small" are really the true blessings in this life. To anyone who reads this....I am so grateful for you and love you very much! -J

Hey RoshamFAM!

Big Announcement! Our latest EP "808s N Chill" comes out TODAY on Spotify! We're really excited that it's out! Click the Spotify tab below to listen now. Be sure to like and follow us. It helps a lot!

 

 

About 808s N Chill...

808 is the fundamental frequency of a kick drum. It's what gives a song it's oomph. Although, we're a rock band at heart, we wanted to pay homage to our RnB roots. 808s is a remix album of some of our favorite songs we've written over the years put in a chill, relaxing setting. Throw it on when you need to study, focus or just plain relax. We hop you dig it!

 

What's Up With J...

This week has really brought forth thoughts of direction. Which way to go or how to get there. Will I get there? The one thing that always stays constant is the music. It means everything to me. Creating it, writing it, producing it, and performing it. No matter where the universe decides to take me I'll always hold on tight to my one true love, music. It is my therapist, my care giver, my rock and it is who I am. This will never change. I'm so grateful to be able to experiment with all kinds of aspects of it and why I am very excited that we are finally getting our latest EP 808's N Chill Vol.1 out on Spotify and apple music. We waited for a while, not sure if it was the right move. But now it's available everywhere you get your digital tunes. Go and check it out. To anyone who reads this...I love you very much. Stay true to yourself. Be who you are. The universe made you this way for a reason. 
-J

 

What's Up With Kyle...

It was a blast playing the unplugged show in Dahlonega last week! Thanks to everyone that stopped by! We're not publicly announcing our shows but we do have another one coming up soon. If you want to know when and where the next one is you can sign up in the RoshamFAM Facebook Group or by signing our mailing list at roshambeauxmusic.com/email-list

 

I've been having some ideas for my home studio. Mostly just for optimizing space. The first step was putting in some new outlets and painting the walls a brighter color. It's coming along really well!

We're shooting the next Patreon cover this week. I was pretty sure we weren't ever going to cover this artist but the requests came in and we just couldn't resist. This particular song is a big inside joke if you've ever been to one of our shows and hear us talk about the random YouTube videos we always find ourselves going back to. I can't wait until this one is out!

-Kyle

J's New Creations "Draco Moon" 


Hey RoshamFAM!

We have some new artwork at roshambeauxmusic.com/artwork. J's put a some new creations out this week and has even brought back a few new versions of a few items that were sold out. Take a look!

 

The Monk

The Monk is made from Rudraksha seeds native to India, Indonesia & Nepal. These seeds are often associated with the Hindu god Shiva, the one who creates, protects and transforms the universe. The Rudraksha or "Tears of Shiva," are often used as prayer beads and are said to safeguard the wearer from negative energy. The Monk is strung with beautiful strong white silk, adorned with a silver plated accent bead and fastened with an antique metal magnetic clasp. 

 

The Terra

The Terra takes its name from Latin meaning "Earth," and features Malachite and lava stone. Aptly named for the benefits of grounding, Malachite is said to protect the wearer from radiation and electromagnetic pollution. This particular bracelet differs from its predecessor by featuring an antique metal magnetic clasp.

 

The Hidden Treasure

Another favorite in our collection, this new Hidden Treasure features a window style magnetic locket with black striped agate beads with antique metal accents strung together with high quality black bamboo cord and fastened with a heavy duty magnetic clasp. Like its orbed counter part, this particular Hidden Treasure necklace is meant to be worn as an intention necklace by placing a written personal intention to encourage independence, self support and exertion of one's capabilities thoroughly.

 

The Talisman of Creative Flow

The Rune burned on this Dakota wild deer shed antler, "LAGUZ" means, "Water" in its original Proto-Germanic language. Like flowing water, the intention for the wearer is to harness creativity, to be in the moment and  manifest what it brings to you. The gem fastened to the horn is locally sourced clear crystal quartz. The quartz, a universal crystal: Believed by many cultures to assist in manifestation and awakening intuition, in the way one finds themselves in the moonlight. The Talisman of Creative Flow hangs from its wearer comfortably with a simple adjustable leather cord.

 

The Talisman of New Beginnings

The Talisman of New Beginnings is fashioned from shed Dakota native wild deer antler, a simple adjustable leather cord and a locally sourced Amethyst stone. Amethyst is believed to bring soothing dreams, bringing the dreamer closer to the Devine and extending those dreams into waking life. The Rune "INGUZ" inscribed on this talisman means "Seed," fitting for the intention of new beginnings, encouraging its wearer to grow and nurture their intentions like a seed destined to grow into a mighty tree.

 

The Communicate Cum Motuis

"Communicate with The Dead," this death Mala features a handmade cotton tassel, high quality black bamboo cord and 108 beads made from white Howlite, black lava stone with red Howlite accents, symbolizing those who have left their bones behind yet leave their ancestral blood to those who still remain. This Mala's Guru or Teacher bead is made from dead stones, reconstituted into the form of a skull. The Mala's inherent intention is for meditation, however, The Communicate Cum Mortuis is specifically made for those who wish to draw strength from their ancestors and the spirits they have left behind.

 

Pentagram Earrings

In the modern world, the Pentagram is often misrepresented for demonic or devilish symbology. In Ancient Babylonia, the Pentagram symbolized mutual recognition and well being. During the middle ages, early Christians believed the Pentagram to represent the 5 senses and the 5 wounds of Christ. Later, during the Renaissance, the Pentagram took on a more "magical" connotation viewed as representing the 5 Neoplatonic elements. These Pentagram earrings are available in both silver plated and antique bronze styles.

 

Check Out J's New Etsy Store!

While you can always check out our artwork at roshambeauxmusic.com/artwork J is excited to launch his new store on Etsy: Draco Moon Creations at etsy.com/shop/DracoMoonCreations

 

What's Up With J...

This week I'm proud to announce that we are launching my Etsy shop! I've been blown away by all the interest in my new hobby and have decided to make it more widely available. This couldn't be possible with out your support and I am truly grateful for each and every one of you. I'm also grateful for the help and support from Kyle. He has helped me with writing up descriptions for each piece and also made me a sweet looking logo that he rendered from a simple hand drawing that I had done. I hope you take the time to go over and check it out at etsy.com/shop/DracoMoonCreations With that being said there has been zero slow down in the music dept. We are so close to completion of our new record I can taste it. Just have some reworking to be done on one of the tracks and we are finishing up a brand new one. Then on to mastering. Also we are planning and have in the works a full live stream soon. We've been putting in the hours prepping everything and trying to get some of the kinks worked out in some of the new material. Be on the look out for an announcement involving that very soon. To anyone that reads this I love you and am so grateful for you and hope you have an amazing week. Much love.

-J

 

What's Up With Kyle...

It's been a great week so far! J's made some really cool new jewelry pieces this week and it's been great getting to help with presenting them. He sent over some hand drawn designs that I've been able to convert to graphics. 

We've gotten the requests for our next performance video. Thanks to everyone that keeps making suggestions. Right now it's between two so I've decided to work on both of them. I feel like the more time you can live your life with new music the better. I've been getting some pretty crazy ideas for one of them in particular. Sometimes when that happens, I get a little nervous, even taking them to J but I'm grateful he's there to reassure me that pushing yourself is a good thing.

A friend of mine is moving this week so I've been helping him out in lieu of working out. I thought I'd feel guilty about skipping leg day. I want to let you know, helping friends move DEFINITELY counts as leg day ( back and arms too), lol!  To be honest, when I committed to it I was a little worried I might get less done with our music projects this week but it's actually kind of help me organize my time. Someone told me most of us don't lack time, we lack clarity. It's so easy to get caught up in our own heads. We forget that we've evolved to help each other. I'm grateful I was reminded of that lesson this week. Help your friends when you can. It's a work out. It's worth it.

-Kyle
