Blende: RadaR Podcast

I was kindly contacted by Björn Böhmelmann, the host of Blende Podcast (out of Darmstadt, Germany) and music editor at Radio Darmstadt, about our song "Even Tho" appearing on his show.   It was played in a segment called "Blind Blende" where music from bands with Creative Commons licenses is played to the guests for the first time and they have to analyze the song immediately afterwords.  Isn't that a cool idea?!  Our track was played for his guest musician Sebe (previously with FNFN).  Unfortunately for us, we don't speak German and really don't know what was said... However, it sounded positive and Björn said they both enjoyed our tune. 

Blende is available to stream on the right side of this page where it says "Aktuelle Sendung."

The show aired on May 18, 2013 and is called 'Darmstadt grows Indie Teil 3.'  If it's no longer the current program, you'll find it on the right side under "Archiv."

Thank you, Björn and Sebe!

Happy Release Day!


I am extremely excited to share that Love Songs for Everyone but Especially Uke is now available EVERYWHERE!  But where oh where is everywhere?  Bandcamp (Directly from me!), iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Spotify, and so on and so on... I've been working on this album since February of 2012.  It's a thrilling thing to see album released to the world!

Love Songs For Everyone But Especially Uke is full of heartfelt folk pop ukulele love songs that express the importance and universal nature of love.  It comes with a ukulele song booklet (when you order the CD directly from me on Bandcamp), so you can play along!  The cover art was designed by TheDICE and the logo was designed by Joel Frijters from Sound Advantage (thank you guys!!).
