Not only do I find his first piece extremely creative — the way he successfully merges jazz, banjos, a “Motown-style” horn, synthesizers, wild electric guitar riffs — but the way he’s releasing his album is a first.
He’s giving away one song at a time every Monday for ten weeks via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. No physical product to buy. Each song is free for listening and sharing via social media.
Although sometimes I honestly question what the internet is really doing to/for us, I’m glad to say if it weren’t for today’s fast-moving technology, we’d very likely be missing out.
To me, a closet musician and artist, it’s wild and inspiring to see the end of creativity being locked in a basement or bedroom forever the way it was for many artists who became famous after their time.
The first song, Cruise Control was released this past Monday, January 24th. Go ahead and learn more about the album here and you’ll find links so you can receive notice of next Monday’s release.
