Watch Our Latest Performance Video! 

Hey RoshamFAM!

We released the trailer for our performance video of "Those Shoes" by The Eagles. Every month we take requests to learn a new song and perform it in our studio. You can put in your requests HERE. We always give our supporters on Patreon priority so if you've been itching to get your request to the front of the line you can join us on Patreon at patreon.com/roshambeaux. There's even a tier where we'll call you and sing you a song.

 We actually never heard the song before until Renee T told us she wanted to hear us cover it. Here's the Trailer.

 

Watch The Full Performances...

We always release fresh full performances to our Patrons first but you can watch older ones on YouTube. Check out the full performance of one of our favorite classics "House of The Rising Sun." We're so glad y'all requested tis one! This was actually the first song both of us learned on guitar... so we decided to not have any guitars present in this performance.

 

 

What's Up With Kyle....

This week I've been finishing up on some stems (or groups of recordings) at home to get over to J for the next album. I buddy of mine had a sweet Fender Twin combo amp that he's letting me borrow and these guitar tracks are perfect for it. I've been digitally modeling that specific amp for a few clean tones lately, so it's really cool to get to use it in an analogue setting. I put a little behind the scenes video up on Patreon for our supporters. If you're a guitar nerd, PLEASE brag about your rig in the comment section. I could talk about that stuff for hours!

Another friend of mine is releasing a book this year so I've been getting to spend some time helping him with some of his visual and promo ideas for its release. I've had to YouTube a lot of "how to" videos this week but it's been great getting to learn some new tricks with graphic and video design.

 J's been working on a few knew jewelry pieces so I'm putting together some logo art so we can expand on those concepts. It's also time to start conceptualizing the artwork for the next Roshambeaux full album. I've gotten a few things done on it. I think it should look super sleek! I'm really excited for it!

J's got me hooked on the OMAD diet. It's been a little over a week and it's really affected my day to day in a positive way. It's definitely not for everyone but it helps me see my environment with a lot more clarity. I hope y'all are well!

-Kyle

 

What's Up With J...

Seems like this week just flew by....right? I've been head deep in creating things and putting together a new song for the record. I was finally able to get Kyle to send over his parts he was working on at home...lol and I should have it finished before the end of the week! So glad to see how far the new album is coming along. I'm so grateful to all of you out there waiting patiently as we tidy up all the loose ends and get it put together for you. I promise you won't be disappointed. This is definitely our best/ most honest record to date. I also finally finished up the talismans I was working on. Only 2 turned out the way I envisioned. But we will be putting them up on the site later this week. So keep a look out. Also a big thanks to everyone who ordered other pieces from us last week. I hope they find you well. It has meant so much to see the response we've been getting on these and I plan to make sure I restock everything that's out at the moment. We let you know about that too. I hope you all are having a wonderful week and to anyone who reads this I love you very much!

-J

New Performance Video & Meeting "The Muse" 

Hey RoshamFAM!

This week we finished filming our performance video for this month's request! It's always so much fun making these. J's finishing up the edits from the footage we got and we'll have a teaser trailer up later this week. However, the full video is available for our Patreon supporters today, so head on over to Patreon if you want to unlock it, along with all of the others we've been doing.

 

 

What's Up With J...

I was overwhelmed to see the interest in the jewelry we released last week. I'm so happy that some of you really connected with the pieces and decided to pick some up. I hope you enjoyed my personal letter I sent along with the package. I truly am grateful for you. For those of you that have asked about certain pieces that are out of stock, I will be making new similar pieces and posting them up as soon as they are done. With the nature of most of the materials I decided to use, they are all one of a kind. So,there will be new photos of each one as I finish them. I'm currently working on a set of 3 talismans made from raw gems and shedded antlers. I'm hoping to have them done soon: Just trying to get this burning technique down first.

This week I've also been finishing up the edits on this months cover video and working on upgrading my side of things with the live gear. The video is now finished for those of you on Patreon and Exclusive Access. I really hope you enjoy it. It was a great request of a song I had never heard before. As for the upgrades I've been working to dial in everything to polish the sounds so that once we are able to get back at full live shows everything will be perfecto. New gear days are always exciting and can't wait to have this all figured out. Thanks to everyone for your continued support and love. All of you mean the world to us and I am grateful everyday to know you're out there listening, watching, and wearing what we create. To anyone who reads this...I love you very much.

What's Up With Kyle...

I met God this week... She's funny.

As a musician it can be really frustrating dealing with inspiration. J and I like to call it "The Muse." It seems like anything good that we come up with doesn't seem like we came up with it on our own. It's somewhat of a helpless feeling, waiting for Her to speak and when She does, rushing to find a piece of paper or a guitar before she fades away and is gone until the next time She decides to wreck your day.

J and I have been chatting a lot this week about "Control." He's been committed to eating one meal a day for about 3 months now and has been bugging me to try it. I was leery about it but he kept insisting it's one of the best things he's done for himself in awhile and at the very least wanted my opinion on it. I'm about 4 days into it and I think I'm going to stick with it. It's been a little rough adjusting to it but aside from the few initial minor headaches, and fogginess, I think I'm adjusting just fine.

I've met a few people that rave about the physical benefits of OMAD but I've discovered a lot of mental benefits this week to it as well, particularly as a musician. I've found that controlling the time I refuel my body, forces that control on the rest of my day. In the developed world, most of us are fortunate to not "feel the need for food," we "feel the desire to eat." I somewhat already knew this but what I didn't realize is that this disconnection with our needs obscures our sense of what we want. For me as a musician, "I want to write good music today," replaces "I need to meet The Muse today." For others it may be, "I want to be a good Christian today," replaces "I need to meet Christ today."

Through something  as simple as OMAD, I've discovered that this Muse doesn't wait in some distant realm until She decides to strike at an inopportune moment. She's always there. I just don't always feel the need to listen. At the risk of sounding a little crazy, I've made a point to meet Her every day this week. She speaks. She's funny.

J's New Handmade Jewelry & Fun With Kyle's Background Vocals 

Hey RoshamFAM!

We announced these new merch items a few weeks ago but we're excited to have them available today! Each item is handmade by J and are one of a kind. So don't be shy about picking one up! You'll have the only one!

 

Hidden Treasure

Made from black striped agate with antique metal accents this locket style pendant necklace is designed for the wearer to express and realize intention. The orb style pendant features an openable vessel to hold an intention note or essential oil diffuser. Black agate has been said to encourage independence, self support and exertion of one's capabilities thoroughly. This necklace is handmade with a high quality black bamboo cord and antique toggle clasp.

 

The Mala

The Mala is made from the seeds of the Rudraksha Tree, known as "The Tears of Shiva," thought to be the original Tree of Life and worn by monks, yogis and spiritual seekers for over 3,000 years. Similar to the Rosary, Malas are used for repetitive prayer, meditation or reciting mantras, traditionally, 108 times for the 108 seeds adorning this necklace. This Mala has been meticulously crafted with fine silk cord and a hand made 100% cotton tassel. The Guru, or teacher bead that crowns the tassel is silver plated. Rudraksha seeds are said to bring peace, wisdom and relief from insomnia.

 

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. Additionally, lava stone is often called a "Grounding Stone," helping the wearer ground to the earth below physically, mentally and spiritually. The Terra features a black hemp cord and gun metal toggle clasp.

 

The Caeli

The Caeli features a black hemp cord, gun metal toggle clasp, lava stone and the crystal stone, Howlite. Like the air that surrounds the earth, Howlite is said to bring the wearer a sense of stillness, open mindedness and clarity, particularly for those who struggle with communication. Howlite was discovered in the late 19th century in Nova Scotia by scientist Henry How that brought the crystal to the forefront of geological study. Pure white Howlite is said to reduce stress and bring clarity. The Caeli derives it's name from Latin, simply meaning "Air."

 

 

The Ignis

Ignis means fire, as seen from modern English words like ignite, ignition and igneous. Made from red dyed Howlite and lava stone, red Howlite is known as an "Attunement Stone," helping the wearer make emotional connection to their environment similar to a warrior seeking understanding of the coming battle. Like fire, red Howlite is said to give the wearer energy, fuel one's natural survival instincts and foster healthy use of anger to destroy what must be destroyed and protect what must be preserved.

 

The Aqua

The Aqua is made from hemp cord, turquoise, lava stone and features and antique toggle clasp. Like calm waters, turquoise is associated with tranquility, enduring love and deep wisdom. Turquoise can be referred to as a scholar stone and is said to bring hope,  good fortune and a thirst for knowledge for those who are searching for wisdom. The Aqua aptly takes its name from Latin, meaning, "Water."

 

The Mortem Mortalitas

"Death and Mortality," The Mortem Mortalitas is made from lava stone and the dust of dead stones. Reconstituted into skulls The Mortem Mortalitas serves as a reminder of the wearers mortality for those that understand the urgency of living a meaningful life. "For dust you are and to dust you shall return." This somber bracelet is made with high quality black hemp cord and features a gunmetal toggle clasp.

 

The Lover

This beautiful necklace is made from Howlite, pure white bamboo cord, a silver plated toggle clasp and features a rose quartz pendant. Used by the ancient Egyptians in burial, masks fashioned from rose quartz were believed to slow decay, preserve youthfulness in the afterlife and provide a link, so their lover would always be with them. Today, rose quartz is used to symbolize love, self love, the healing that only comes from love and is said to restore trust and harmony between lovers. Rose quartz turns pink when it absorbs titanium at formation, a wonderful metaphor for the strength and power of love.

 

Secret Show...

Our Secret Show just for our RoshamFAM was rained out last week but we've rescheduled. It will be next month, outdoors and socially distanced. You can get the details on when and where, by either joining our mailing list or by joining our private Facebook Group RoshamFAM.

 

What's Up With Kyle...

When I was a kid my mom would always wake me up singing. I don't think I had an alarm clock until I was an adult (or at least a late teenager) and my dad and I would always sing together at night writing parodies of classic rock songs. A lot of people ask me what inspired me to get into the music industry. While there are several more famous people that more than likely had a hand in it as well, it's really because of my parents. One that encouraged me to start my day with music and the other that encouraged me to end it with writing.

If you ever sing with another person randomly you know you're taking a big chance by ruining the moment by adding harmony without letting the person know. It can be awkward and throw the other person off if you're not careful. I remember the first time my mom did that with me. It felt like the first time you ride a bike without training wheels. You think you got it but you also feel like you're losing control. She said, "You know how the song goes. Concentrate. Pay attention to what YOU'RE doing." After that initial uneasiness, which was a few years if I'm being honest, I fell in love with creating harmonies and how those harmonies made me feel. It locks you in with something outside of yourself while at the same time forcing you to focus on what's within yourself. I've come to find that this principle of harmony exists outside of music. Living in harmony with others has to be created. It's awkward, scary and even embarrassing at first; Most people aren't ready for it but it's worth it.

I've been woking a lot on harmonies with background vocals this week. I finished up my part arrangements for the next cover we're doing for our Patreon supporters but I also got a call from a friend of mine who needed a sub for his background vocalist and acoustic guitarist. It was great to be able to sit in and support. It had been a really long time since I got to play that part but it really was just like riding a bike in every sense of the expression. I hope you get a chance to focus on creating harmony this week even if it has nothing to do with music. "You know how the song goes."

What's Up With J...

This week I've been finishing up on preparing our next cover video. I'm super pumped on how this one is turning out. We are scheduled to shoot it this week and I can't wait for you to see/hear it. Also, big news...I've finally finished my first collection of handmade jewelry! Kyle has been working his butt off getting everything set up on the store and it's looking sharp. These are all one of a kind pieces. I really hope you guys can find something that speaks to you, as I've made each piece with a certain intention. This project has really helped me have another outlet to create and flow. It has made it easier to learn to truly enjoy the process. Sitting for hours perfecting certain techniques, selecting stones for certain purposes, tying knot after knot, etc. But in all this, I made these for you. I am grateful for the meditative nature of creation that I experience while making them. But most of all I am grateful I'm finally able to share that same energy with you. And as always....to anyone who reads this....I love you very much and am so grateful for you.

-J

What's Up With J...

This past week was my birthday. A big high five and thanks for all the love shared through comments and dms. You guys are the best! I usually don't do anything. But this year I decided I'd get all the guys together and have a fire. There is something that connects with us primally about sitting around a fire sharing stories with our friends. Have any of you had a community fire lately? I'm so grateful that everyone made it out. It was a great time. I've also been taking sometime to read outside this past week. Being able to take in the sun and watch nature do its thing while losing yourself in a good book is such a special thing. Lately I've been reading Inner Engineering by Sahdguru. Have any of you heard of this one? As far as creating goes I have been continuing to work on my jewelry to get a few things locked down before I post them up. We have a secret show coming up this Saturday and I plan on bringing a few pieces for sale. So if you want to be one of the first to get a look come check em out. I'll be posting pictures of everything soon. As always, to anyone who reads this...I love you very much -J

What's Up With Kyle...

I've been having a few electrical gremlins at my house this week so it may be time to rewire a few outlets. Home repair stuff can be kind of daunting but I've always enjoyed learning about electricity. That's probably why I'm in an electronic band. It's one of those everyday miracles that we forget about. We've been talking about that a lot lately at the studio. There are lots of mind bogglingly amazing things that happen around us everyday and we can either choose to ignore them or take a moment to stop and enjoy them. I've had a few choice words aimed at a 220v outlet this week but at the same time I'm really grateful for it. Especially, after making a makeshift clothesline for drying clothes while I get this figured out. It's been sunny and I can remember the last time I was this grateful for it.

J's been showing me videos of this guy named Sahdguru. One thing that he said that really hit me is that when someone tells you to, "Just Be" you think you don't have to do anything. "To be," is a verb that requires action. It takes effort. It takes awareness. What we do with that effort and awareness shapes our time that everyday we have a little less of. "Just being" is the greatest thing you can do and really the only thing you truly can do with complete control.

This week, I'm working on arranging the song for this month's Patreon request. Usually, when we write a song, or in this case redo a song, it's my job to lay out it's bones and make preliminary recordings to get over to J to go over for adding his parts, finalizing tone and overall production. I always really liked this band and can even say they were a major influence growing up, especially concerning guitar. However, I hadn't heard this song until one of our Patrons suggested it. It reminded me that great music is hiding everywhere and doesn't always get attention. The only way for art to have a voice is if you share it with your friends. Sometimes the "B Side" is the best side and I was so so surprised I hadn't heard this song before. Do you have favorite songs like that? If you do I'd love it if you let me know. This great sunny weather has got me itching to make a new jogging playlist. Let me know what you got!

Secret Show This Month, Free Album Download & What's Up with Kyle & J 

Hey RoshamFAM!

We hope y'all are having a great week! We've been working in the studio on the live rig this week and we'll have an announcement for you later this month!

Secret Show This Month!

We're really excited to announce we have another secret outdoor show coming up but you gotta be in the FAM to get the details. You can join the RoshamFAM on our Mailing List HERE or join our Facebook Group RoshamFAM.

 

Our Album Is FREE This Week!

We want to say thanks for all the support you've given us. That's why our Album "After Math" is free this week to anyone that wants it! Click the Image below!

What's Up With Kyle...

I get my second dose of the Moderna Covid 19 vaccine this week. I didn't have much of a reaction with the first dose (just a sore arm for a day or so). Let me know if you've gotten the vaccine, are planning to get it or have decided to pass. Life is full of polarizing issues and I think the way we get we get past them is by talking about it. 

Polarization is a funny concept to me. It seems like for every bandwagon that pops up, there's another one alongside it dedicated to not jumping on the first one. It's not enough to simply not go along with something, there's pressure to be vocal about it. I think humans like things to be black and white. We value our sense of belonging for self preservation more than food or shelter. Belonging helps us survive. More and more, I see our society seems ever increasingly desperate for it. The problem I see, is that when we draw a line in hope of validation we end up becoming more isolated and less moreover, less ourselves. It's ok to disagree. Disagreements lead to solutions but we won't ever get there if we dismiss discourse for the comfort of our own echo chambers.

Other than what's going on inside my own head, I've been thinking about doing some simple live unplugged performance videos. No frills, just something where we have a quiet moment together. Let me know if that's something you'd like to see?

-Kyle

What's Up With J...

After Ted passing away last week things have been pretty somber at home. Walking in expecting to see him, hearing noises you associate, etc. I've been describing them as flash memories, where my memories are programed to expect to see him and soon realizing he's not there. But can swear I saw him for a moment. Let me know if any of you have ever experienced things like this.

Also, a big thanks to everyone who reached out and shared some kinds words or you're own experiences. All the comments and messages you guys really are the greatest and helped me feel not so alone.  
Determined to stay on a positive path, I've been continuing to grow my ideas for putting out a collection of jewelry that I'm really proud of. I'll be taking good pictures of the pieces and we will be putting a few on our website for sale very soon. So be on the look out for that. Diving into this project has really reminded me of how important it is to just create. No matter what it is and to allow myself to enjoy the process, not just focusing so much on the end results. I'm so grateful for this. Besides that, I've also been working to prepare our full live mix for a super awesome announcement coming soon. Kyle and I both have been working tirelessly to get things another step above what they were. We can't wait to share that news with you soon. Also, an update on the cooking with j episode. I'll be shooting sometime this week and should have it out very soon as well. Thanks for being patient and understanding. And as always to anyone who reads this....I love you very much.

Our Thoughts on Losing Best Friends and Playing Covers. 

Hey RoshamFAM!

We finished the video for this month's requested cover song this week, "Ring of Fire," by Johnny Cash. Thanks to Jeff C for requesting it! We wanted to give it a little darker tone and we're really excited how it turned out! Check out the Trailer below!

 

 

You can unlock the full version of this performance on Patreon. Every month we take requests and decide which song to put our own spin on. We've had a lot of fun with your suggestions! 

 

 

 

What's Up With J...

This week I lost one of my best friends. He was always there to comfort me when I needed him, to bring a smile on my face when I was feeling down, and the an amazing listener. We noticed last week that something wasn't right with him and made an appointment as soon as we could. Took him in the following day and had all the tests performed so we could figure out what was wrong. The vet and nurse walked in with their heads down after the results came back "it's kidney failure". They explained to me what was to be expected in the coming days and laid out the options....well the one option.

I held it together on the ride home and once my son went into the house I completely fell apart. My heart was broken to pieces. My friend and family member of 9 years was dying and I had just a couple days till we needed to put him down. He made it through the weekend and we spent as much time with him as possible. Telling him what a good boy he was. On the last day he started crying out. The pain had gotten to be too much. We called and had to have them move up the appointment. We took him in and stayed by his side the whole time so he wouldn't go it alone. We wrapped him in his favorite blanket and had his favorite toys right there with him. And as we all held our hands on him and told him it was ok and his suffering would soon be over. He had a moment of calm and his spirit left his body.

Ted, you were my best friend and a positive force in my life. You will be missed and never forgotten. Where ever you are I hope there is an abundance of butt rubs and endless fields to run. To anyone who reads this....I love you very much and I hope that this can serve you as it has me a reminder that death is inevitable. Don't wait. Tell those you love how much they mean to you. Cherish each and every moment for everyday is a gift. -J

 

 

What's Up With Kyle...

As a musician, it's always difficult making someone else's music your own. You write your own music and hope it connects with people but when you're starting out with an audience that's never heard of you it's hard to get people to want to listen to it. There's a lot of debate on whether playing/producing covers is a "sell out" but personally I feel like sometimes it's the only way of making a connection as an artist to someone you've just met. It's Socratic in a way. "Hey, do you know this song? I do too! Now we have something in common." I think it's something that even wildly successful artists still hold on to. I think it's especially powerful when you're help others see something familiar in a new way.

 I always really liked Johnny Cash. When this month's cover request for "Ring of Fire" came in J and I both knew we wanted to take a stab at it. My immediate thought was to "punk rock it out" but after a few YouTube searches we found that Social Distortion did the best punk rocked out version of the song and we felt like anything we tried along those lines would be an inferior copy so we decided to try something completely different.

A few month's ago I went down a rabbit hole on YouTube of what popular songs would sound like in their relative major or minor keys. If that sound like weird music jargon, major keys are often associated with happy, light and uplifting music while minor keys are associated with melancholy, dark and immersive music. So, when the relative keys are reversed Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" becomes a bubble gum pop song and classic children's songs like "Where The Watermelon Grows," turn into creepy, edgy horror soundtracks, lol. I really wanted to experiment with this concept with Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire." After reviewing some music theory I got the basic melodic and chord structures reformatted and took it over to J. I think we ended up coming out with a really cool, emotional version.

Someone once told me, "You don't want your old toys back. You just want to feel the way those toys made you feel again." I think producing cover music can give listeners that feeling. A lot of time's I'll go back and listen to a song I haven't heard in awhile and swear I'm listening to to the wrong song. It just doesn't sound the same to me because I'm not listening to a song; I'm chasing a feeling. Johnny Cash & June Carter gave the world a tremendous volume of real world, raw emotional music. So this version is somber tribute to the legacy they've left behind.

Can You Guess The Next Cover Video With This Pic? 

Hey RoshamFAM!

This week we finished filming our latest cover music video! Every month we take requests on learning a new cover. Once all the requests are in we sit down and decide which one we think we can pull off in our style. We've had some crazy ones come in over the last year. It's been a lot of fun getting the opportunity to put our spin on some of your favorite songs. It's also helping us frame up our live show for the next tour as soon as we're able to resume. So if you have any ideas on a song you'd like us to make our own let us know in the comment section at the bottom of the page. We always let our supporters on Patreon and Exclusive Access have priority, so if you're itching to hear your song request and want to support your favorite rocktronic duo in the process, hit us up on Patreon. Just $5 a month gets you access to all the cover videos and priority on your ideas!

Here's a peak at last month's request...

It's always a lot of fun when you find a cool music venue and the band there plays a song you requested. We wanted to make sure you can get that experience even though not a lot of bands have resumed touring. So go ahead, make a request!

 

What's Up With J...

This week has been creation nation in my world. Song production, video shooting, video editing, some bead work, and a few hand sewing projects has really been keeping me busy. Just like many of you this past week was the first week of lawn maintenance for me as well. There is something super zen and gratifying about it. So grateful to be able to have the opportunity to work on all of these things. Kyle has been trying to talk me into putting some of the bead work I've been doing up on our website. Let me know if you guys have any interest in something like that. Also, finally got our taxes done for last year. That's a huge weight lifted. We've got plenty of things in the works for you guys and the new cover video I should have finished in a couple days. Really pumped with all the footage we got for it. Hope all of you are having a great week and are able to take some time out for yourself to create and love yourself. And as always, to anyone that reads this...I love you very much! -J

 

What's Up With Kyle...

I think one of the greatest feelings in the world is talking to someone you haven't talked to in a long time and you're able to pick up right where you left off. There's no awkward small talk, there's no fear of judgement or worrying about what you'll say. The conversation just flows naturally, like you haven't spent a day apart.

A childhood friend sent me a message the other day just to check in. Every once in awhile someone will reach out and the conversation is a little clunky. We have have to tip toe around each other for fear that one of us has dramatically changed and we might have to watch what we say.

It wasn't like this with this friend, even though we hadn't talked in 10 years or more. We caught up quickly on the minor details of what life's been like but we instantly went back to being teenagers. After school, almost everyday we'd meet up with our acoustic guitars and jam. When I was younger, I struggled a lot with self confidence and was always hesitant to play songs I wrote in front of my friends. However, I could hardly wait until school was out to show him what I was working on. I don't remember any of those songs or conversations but I always felt safe. I always felt honored. I wasn't sure if he knew that so I tried to made a point to thank him for it. Honestly, I was sorry it took that long. 

When you lay a good foundation, what you build lasts. One of the greatest people I ever met said, "No one ever remembers what you say or what you do but they will never forget how you make them feel." How you make people feel matters. It's what starts meaningful relationships. I was reminded of that this week. You may not see how you change someone's life for the better right away. It may take years for someone to say thanks. Don't let it stop you. It's worth it. It takes everything you have to genuinely love your neighbor but it takes almost nothing to be kind. You can yell and scream all you want but your message will drown in the well of others' feelings. Your words will eventually mean nothing either way but your presence means everything.

-Kyle

Get Roshambeaux's Exclusive Access Content Free This Week! 

Hey RoshamFAM!

This week we're working on a brand new cover requested by one of our monthly Exclusive Access supporters! In case you didn't know, we take requests every month for new songs to produce and turn into a performance video. It's been a lot of fun and it helps us to continue challenging ourselves and make new music. We've had some really crazy requests come in over the past few month's. We're excited about this next one! We'll have some sneak peaks available for everyone but you'll need to be a part of either our Exclusive Access or Patreon Fam to see the whole thing.

With that being said... If you're reading this we love you.

So, since you're here we'd like to offer a week of Exclusive Access to you for FREE. No strings. We don't need your credit card info and you don't have to watch some weird sales video. We'd just like you to check it out. If you feel like supporting us after this week go for it! It really helps!

Here's the new content from this month. We had a lot of fun with Nadia M's request.

How to Log in...

What's Up With Kyle...

Doesn't it seem like once we get a small reprieve from the latest disaster there's another one lurking in the shadows ready to be blasted on social media? It always seems like there's a new hashtag beckoning you to choose a side or feel guilt for not signaling your virtue, not exposing the latest conspiracy or not showing the world how "woke" you are, even though you may have no intention of applying your unwavering solidarity in a real life scenario.

With the events of last week sparking new awareness for violence against the Asian American community, I've seen a few people commenting things like, "Oh, I guess Black lives don't matter now, just Asians, lol." "I guess here's another agenda for the sheep to follow." Or even, "Am I still allowed to say ____? Is that PC? I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings."

In central Wisconsin, grew up alongside Vietnam War asylum seekers and their kids, when the US promised them a safe place to stay after things didn't go as planned. I've seen Asian hate. It's real. It's disgusting, knowing what my new neighbors had to go through and to see the way they were treated by fellow Americans. Looking back, I realize they had more American spirit than I ever will because they literally had to fight for it.

I'm can't attest to what was going on in the individuals' hearts when creating hashtags like #blacklivesmatter or #stopasianhate . Maybe there is some grand conspiracy that I'm missing. What I can attest to,  how I choose to treat people when they tell me they're hurting. If you are kind you will never have to worry about being PC. If you say the wrong thing in kindness, someone will let you know if it hurt them. You won't view their pain as a personal attack. 

Everyday you get to choose what type of person you'll be and what kind of environment you'll help to create. I want to be in a world where pain is alleviated not exacerbated. I want to live in a world where racism is rare and stamped out when detected in its smallest forms. I want to live in a world where love is not a hashtag or a way to get Instagram famous but a practice. I want to live in the world my Asian friends were promised and the one our parents fought for. What kind of a world do want?

-Kyle

 

What's Up with J...

This week has been a strange one. Has anyone else noticed any weird vibes lately? I myself have been doing my best to steer clear. So, I've been deep on the studio working on our next monthly cover. This has to be the best one yet or at least my favorite adaptation. Really can't wait till we can share it with you. I've read all the votes in the fam and there is a clear winner. I'll start shooting the video for that very soon. Thanks to all of you that voted in the FAM. I was so happy to see all of you that contributed your ideas and just seeing how many of you had interest in me making a new cooking with J episode was very inspiring. Just a check in, I'm still on one meal a day daily meditation and daily 2 mile walks. I'm down 35lbs and couldn't be happier. It's about time I whipped my shit back into gear both health wise and spiritually. We should be shooting the video for our next cover video sometime this week. So, be on the look out. As always, to anyone who reads this....I love you very much. -J

Acoustic shows, finalizing mixes for new album & pockets of joy. 

Hey RoshamFAM!

We played our first show since the pandemic hit last Friday! We can't wait to add more. We're aiming to add outdoor, socially distant shows this year as long as we can route and perform them safely. It feels like we're finally starting to come out of the tunnel, although we know it will still be a little while until things feels normal again.

Because shows this year will most likely be still be limited capacity we'll be announcing them exclusively to our Mailing List and our Facebook Group RoshamFAM. So make sure you've joined as least one of those so you can stay up to date on show announcements (as well as other announcements like new music videos, albums and merch)!

 

What's Up With Kyle...

It was really great to play a show last week! Being unplugged, it reminded me of when I first started playing music in front of people. It was definitely a rebirth. Thanks to everyone in the RoshamFAM that came out. I'm hoping we can add more. The venue did a REALLY awesome job taking precautions, and honestly, I think it's how shows should be ran even without a pandemic.

I had my first understudy role last week, lol. I was invited to sing, filling in for another artist at the annual Peace Pole Dedication in Northeast GA put on by Nuclear Watch South. The event honors local activists, the U.N. Treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons. This year the event coincided with the 10th anniversary of the ongoing radiological disaster at Fukishima, Japan. It was really great to be around people that want to celebrate peace and fight for practical ways to encourage the use of clean energy.

Besides music, I was able to get away and do a little kayaking. Through the pandemic I've been able to pick up a new appreciation for just being out in the fresh air. There's been a lot of negative things about the last year but I'm grateful to find little pockets of joy. J reminded me last week that joy is a choice and doesn't have anything to do with what's going on outside of yourself. I hope you're able to make time for joy this week. It's worth it. We die and stuff.

What I'm Listening To: Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash

 

What's Up With J...

This past week we played our first show back. It was a pleasant experience being able to jam some of our new songs acoustically. Honestly can't wait till we can do a full show with them. A big thanks to everyone who came out and hung out with us. I know a few of you traveled to do so and that means so much to me. We are already trying to get more of these outdoor socially distanced kind of things lined up soon. I finally got that new lens Ive been talking about, the cannon 24mm prime. Been running some tests with it and can't wait to shoot the next cover video with it. I know for the past couple of weeks I've mentioned doing another cooking with J video....but honestly haven't been able to decide which one to do next. So, I figure I'll put it to a vote in the RoshamFAM group. Hop on over there and vote on which dish or side you'd like to see me do. On a side note, I've been working to finalize the mixes for this new record. I'm over half way complete. It's really starting to come together. I had Kyle over this past Monday to get his opinion of the work I've been doing and it seems all is a go. We are both excited to get this finished and out to you guys. So keep on the look out and as always to anyone who reads this...I love you very much. 
-J

30lbs Lighter, 2 Heads Clearer & 1 Show on The Books! 

Hey RoshamFAM!

So... a lot of people have been asking us when we'll be back on the road. We're still not totally sure. Routing tours usually has it's own set of challenges but with States having their own individual mandates or restrictions (or lack of them), routing regional/multi-regional tours can feel like each show is in a different country, lol. 

HOWEVER, we are playing an exclusive, outdoor & unplugged show for the people that have continued to support us throughout all of this, this Friday. We're only letting members of the RoshamFAM know about it but if you'd like to get the details you can join our Facebook group HERE.

 

New Cover Video


Unlock the full video HERE

Funny story: As you might already know, we've been taking song requests on our Patreon and Exclusive Access pages every month and turning them into performance music videos. So far we've done Black Crowes, Ted Nugent, Bob Segar, Rage Against The Machine, The Animals, Counting Crows, Prince and new this month: Duran Duran. The truth is neither of us really like Duran Duran but when our patron Nadia M requested it we wanted to give it a try. Come to find out Nadia's husband hacked her account to request the song (she's not a big fan of Duran Duran either)! We all had a big laugh but you know what? We have a new appreciation for Duran Duran's songwriting. We think this is our favorite so far!

 

What's Up With J...

This week I can officially say I'm 30lbs lighter. This marks one month of the daily walks and one meal a day style eating habits. So grateful for the support and encouraging words I've received from all of you and am excited to see where this takes me. It has been a huge lifestyle change but somehow feels so familiar. Most of these things (daily walks, healthier relationships with food, daily meditation and ritual) are all things that I let myself dispose of earlier in life without realizing it. Our happiness comes from within. Our joy comes from within. I'm truly realizing how important it is to take care of our selves and study what it is that makes us human. We must not extract from the world our needs. It is our responsibility to create. On a lighter note, I'm excited to say we finally have a show lined up for this week. I'm excited to be able to perform some of our new material and honestly excited to be able to see some of you. For those of you in the RoshamFAM you'll be able to get all the details from the group post. I'm also planning to shoot a new cooking with J episode soon. I'll keep everyone in the loop the best I can. As always, to anyone who reads this I love you very much! -J

What I'm Listening To: "Sunspots" by NIN

 

What's Up With Kyle...

 Y'all ever get Dejavu? When I was a teenager I knew I wanted to play music for a living but I wasn't really sure how to go about it. Out of high school, I remember going over with my guidance counselor what I wanted to do and we'd both scratch our heads when trying to find a major that fit with my plans. I wanted to get into audio engineering but the University only offered Brodcasting, Journalism and Communications (I went with Communications and it was one of the best decisions I ever made but that's another story).

After a few semesters I found an opportunity for an internship at a small recording studio in Northeast GA that was getting a few cool jobs. I decided to pack up and go for it singing lyrics, "Sometimes you gotta leave your life behind if you wanna find it," which turned into a song called "Fly away" I ended up recording with J a few years later when we were first figuring things out.

This week, a friend of mine invested in some home recording equipment and I got to go hang out and help him set it up. It reminded me of when I first moved to Georgia from Wisconsin, which seems like a lifetime ago. I was new to recording but I knew I wanted to figure it out. I was reminded at how much there is to know and how much I still have to learn. 

Life is intimidating when you're not sure what to do or how to do it. Someone told me once, "When life is overwhelming you don't lack time. You lack clarity." It's easy to change the oil in your car with little time and effort if you know how. However, if you've never done it before and you're all by yourself without the right wrench, it'll take you forever. I think most things in life are like that. We beat ourselves up when we don't know how to do something when it seems like other people are killing it. You have to go for it, make mistakes and recognize when you are. Doing the same thing (or more of the same thing) that doesn't work will drive you insane. Learn from people that are equipped. Don't be afraid to ask for help or to do a little digging. You got this!

What I'm listening to: "Elastic Heart" by Sia
