All The Latest Music News from Tin Pan Folk & Americana Artist Breadfoot
October 2018 Edition
Christ on a cracker. October 2nd and we're still in the 80's. Yeah yeah. See the thing is I came up in the midwest and I kinda dig proper seasons and well I'm feeling like I'm getting gypped here.
Right well enough of the whining about the weather. Lets' talk about shows from September and tell ya I had a swell time playing at the City Tap, Applefest and at The Forest Theatre in Chapel Hill.
The Forest Theatre gig was a pre-show entertainment slot for the amazing Paperhand Puppet Intervention. Handed my sweetie my Flipcam right before the show and she got the whole thing.
Actually had intended cause a few folks have asked me to do this, to upload the full show. Went and got all verified. Understood that I could once verified upload videos longer than 15 minutes but, no joy. May well have everything to do with this net neutrality battle we seem to be losing. Greedy fuckers are throttling the bandwidth and unless we sign on to pay 120 clams a month we gotta deal with speeds maybe, sometimes, certainly not hardly ever up to 7 mbps.
So yeah the full show vid kept failing and I had to parce it out. Cut it up into 5 videos. A song a video and yeah several of em are in the side bar there. Digging it and wanna see the rest of the show? Well then pop on over to my Youtube Channel BreadfootVideo and have yourself a look see and don't forget to subscribe if ya wanna know when I post other new content.
Uhm October. Yeah couple appearances. Coming up hot and fast is a special guest appearance on Pass The Hat on the small but mighty, WHUP 104.7 FM. Always a good time there. Hoping to have in tow my suitcase kick and a gee-tar and my Sunnyland. Yessir!
In addition to getting some Breadfoot back out on the airwaves I'll be returning to Millstone Creek Orchards on Saturday October 20th for Oktoberfest. Come on out. Bring the kids and let's get all pumpkin-ee!
Rest of October I'm gonna keep working on shaping that new crowd funding campaign for Seven $ Suit and Other Stories. Intent is to marry up a new studio recording with a hand drawn coloring / activity book.
Got about 11 musical ideas sketched out and I'm bouncing recording ideas around with my old buddy Rhys from Autumnsongs in Trondheim, Norway. When I was over last fall. I kicked a couple shows and had a real wonderful time catching up with Rhys. We hung out in his studio and made a couple vids on the fly. Check out Seven $ Suit in the side bar recorded live at Autumnsongs.
Anyways yeah had a great time and the live room is amazing so my dream to be able to make this record at Autumnsongs and man yeah that would be too cool.
So while me and Rhys are working on pre-production and trying to suss out a budget I'm inking the hell out of some of the stories and activity pages so that I can include em in my pitch video.
I'm also doing some thinking on incentives. Came across a cool idea. What would you all think about an iPhone screen saver? Roughed out one I'm calling DEMONSAVER! Have a look see in the side bar. Might be that this would make a really cool T-shirt as well!
Okaythen that's bout all for now.
Cheers you all!
