ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On February 5th, 2010, the Washington DC/Baltimore area was hit by a huge snowstorm- what the weathermen had termed "Snowpocalypse". We got over 30 inches of snow where I live. I had been cooped up in the house for over a week, with the exception of when I got to go out and shovel snow. So in the midst of my stir-craziness, I was overcome to write and record a little ditty about my battles with the snow- Aptly titled "Snowpocalypse". I have a little home studio setup- a Roland VS-1680- so I programmed the drums, laid down the guitar and bass tracks, and then conjured up my best "Kajun James Dio", with a guest appearance by "Yngwie Kelley". (This was prior to Ronnie James Dio's passing, RIP)

My wife gave me a Flip video camera for Christmas. I hadn't really messed with it much, but when we were snowed in, I broke it out and used it to film the snow storms with the sole intention of sending the videos to my family. When I was loading them onto my computer, I saw that you could put videos to music. I decided I would use the videos that I'd shot of the snow and use my silly "Snowpocalypse" song as background music, just for my own amusement.

But then I discovered that you could edit pieces together.......and the wheels started turning. So the next morning I woke up on a mission. I spent my whole day shooting little snippets and then edited them together with some of the footage I had shot of the storms. I had WAY too much fun! I was running around like a little kid, shooting video. By myself mind you....hopefully my neighbors didn't see me shooting some the "outdoor scenes". Embarrassing.

So, I posted the video on YouTube, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgWOqnTqqEU) , and the response I got was more than I had expected. Many people have been asking if they could purchase the song, so even though it's not a "studio quality" recording, I've decided to release it as a digital single. Enjoy!
