After lots of hard work and a torturous amount of editing I’m happy to introduce you to the brand new Drumless song, Stay Strong. I got a lot of feedback asking for more drumming content to help you practice your chops, so I delivered the goods! If this is your first time hearing about this whole Drumless business I would highly recommend checking out the official page (http://www.TheEndIsNich.com/Drumless) to learn more and then come back here to catch up.
This song was written to challenge myself and to challenge you. I wanted this to not only be my longest song but I also wanted to incorporate sounds and styles I’ve never used before. In making Stay Strong I ended up hitting many creative road blocks, which was expected. The title, the mantra, those two combinations of words are what got me to the end and helped me finish this song to completion. I hope that when you’re writing and practicing to this song that it can help you get through those moments of creative resistance and tear down those walls that prevent you from coming up with your best ideas. Stay Strong. Stay the course. Never give up.
Practice your ass off and have fun with this one. I had lots of fun writing it, I had lots of fun practicing with it, and I hope it can help you get a little bit better at your craft.
Check out this crazy music video that my friend Tyler made for my band’s song, Tyrannosaurus Wreck. He put it together using Source Film Maker and made some great things happen; a T-Rex, raptor, dragon, knights, a heavy, and some treasure are involved. You’ll have to watch it to see what happens.
A huge personal thanks goes out to Tyler for working so hard to make this video. It kicks so much ass and makes me smile so large it hurts my face. Be sure to check out his YouTube Channel and see more of his videos and if you like it be sure to subscribe for future entertainment.
Here it is! Enjoy! \m/
Feel free to download the song (with or without vocals) for FREE on our Bandcamp website.
Here’s a brand new tune I created called, Taking Control. I made it to help me deal with taking control of my life and the reality of being responsible for my actions, inactions, the good, and the bad. Every time I get angry I need to examine that moment and make a conscious effort to learn from that experience and take responsibility for my negative actions. The same is true for every time I’m having a great day at work, in the studio, or being around people I love. In those moments of pure happiness are lessons about yourself as well. Examine those good moments and take responsibility for those too. By maximizing the amount of happiness in your life and taking stock in every situation you find yourself in you can optimize your reality to be exactly the way you intend it to be. It’s as easy as taking control.
Here’s a video of my friend Oceantann using my new song Cute And Fun And Fun and Cute for her weekly instagram series, Whiteboard Wednesdays. In this video she draws the Disney Princess, Elsa. A very fitting character given the soundscape the song provides. Enjoy watching her do what she loves to do most! Cheers!
