Year in Review – 2015

Avatar for Mojo's Army bandHey rockers – it’s the end of another jam-packed year for Mojo’s Army! Here’s a quick look back…

My goal for 2015 was to do everything I do, better. So I took a bunch of online courses in subjects like Music Theory, Music Business, and Social Media. I worked on singing, guitar, and songwriting, and entered mixing contests to sharpen my craft.

Happily continued my killer collaboration with guitarists Troy Jay Adams and Jay Hale called “The Answer is None“, releasing 5 new songs over the course of the year. You can hear them on the project’s Soundcloud and on my YouTube Channel. Heavy, groovy, melodic, tasty stuff.. Fans of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and Queensryche will be pleased. Here’s the most recent release, “Lucky You”:

Mojo’s Army also released two songs — the title track for “Red Days” and a cover of a naughty 80s classic, “I Want Your Sex.” Here’s “Red Days”:

Other fun stuff – saw some great shows in small venues, bands like Deap Vally, Motor Sister, Ghost, and the revitalized Corrosion of Conformity. I took over hosting a Twitter chat for home recording artists that’s now called the #diymusicchat. And I finally picked up a second guitar which I’ve named “Trouble” — it’s an early 90s Charvel by Jackson that I’ve tricked out with a Perpetual Burn bridge pickup and an FU-Tone brass block, so sweet!

I’m very much looking forward to releasing even more music in 2016 with both Mojo’s Army and The Answer is None, and seeing whatever else the year will bring!

Thanks for continuing this journey with me. I don’t take it lightly, I know your time is valuable and I appreciate it. Check in with me anytime on Twitter or Facebook, and remember that my entire catalog is streaming at my YouTube channel and is available for super cheap at Bandcamp!

Thanks for your support! Happy holidays to you and yours and have a rockin New Year!

DIY Music Twitter Chat

Microphone IconWhat’s up rockers! I wanted to let you know that I’ve taken over running the weekly Home Recording Twitter Chat and renamed it the DIY Music Twitter Chat. It’s an open forum where indie musicians can discuss the ins and outs of DIY recording, mixing, and production, and anything else that is related to the making of music outside of a professional studio. All you need to join is a Twitter account and some free time on Wednesdays at 12:30 Pacific Time, just use the hashtag #diymusicchat to  jump in!

Since the chats cover so much good info, I wanted to make sure I could save them for future reference and started archiving them on Storify. Check out the archives or come join us live!

Year in Review – 2014

What a year for Mojo’s Army!

Here I thought I was going to finish the Red Days EP, and what happened instead was the beginning of a killer collaboration with guitarists Troy Jay Adams and Jay Hale. We’ve released three songs so far, have three more in the works and are calling ourselves “The Answer is None”. The songs are currently on my Soundcloud and YouTube. At this rate, look for a possible album in 2015! The sound is what you’re used to, heavy, groovy, yet more epic and melodic. Fans of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and Queensryche will be pleased. Toss in a little Van Halen and we have something! Here’s the most recent one, “I Know”

Mojo’s Army did release two originals, the soulful ballad “Bittersweet” and the angry, punky “Nothing to Say” which will lead off the upcoming “Red Days” EP.

I can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store musically, thanks for continuing this journey with me. Remember that my entire catalog is streaming at my YouTube channel and is available for purchase for virtually nothing at Bandcamp. Support independent musicians!

Happy holidays and have a rockin New Year!
