I really like this song, and the video makes it even more fun for me. Hope you enjoy it! Feel free to share if you think others will…and Happy New Year!!
If somehow I haven’t told you before, let me wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
It’s never really what you want. Rather, it’s what you have to do that gets done. Not that making a video for this song was my first impulse. But once the idea hit me, I couldn’t help but follow through with it. I’m actually happy with the quality. It’s up to you to judge now, world.
Just wanted to say a quick thank you to the Boulevard Tavern and Dave Thomas for having me! Thank you to everyone that came out. It was a wonderful night and I thoroughly enjoyed being able to play for you. Hope to do it again sometime soon! I uploaded several photos from the evening.
Our friend Rudy Panucci wrote a very nice article on yours truly today in the Charleston Gazette’s Pop Cult Blog. It seems like an awful lot to live up to, but I’ll try. Hehehe! The article is here.
Simply put, “Naked Souls”is an exquisite album, starting with the McCartney-esque “RocknRolla” and ending with the ultra-catchy “It’s Not The End.” Rad’s album is almost like the second coming of XTC’s “Skylarking.” I mean that as very high praise indeed.
While you’re over there, don’t be afraid to look around. Especially if you like local artist! I know of no one that does more to promote a local music scene than Rudy. So go over and say hi, and tell him I sent you!
Now back to practicing so I don’t make him look silly for saying all those nice things about me.
Great news! I’ll be playing at the Boulevard Tavern in Charleston on December 14th. I’m really excited to play for all my Charleston friends! It’s always too long in between times I can say this. I’ll be playing from 7-10, doing all the songs from the CD. Plus I got a couple new songs written and hopefully a couple surprises as far as guest appearances and the cover songs I’m working up. So, I hope everyone can make it out. Also, free CD to anyone that does the robot while I play My So Called Life. Go ahead, if you all do it and there’s a hundred people in the bar, I’m fine with that. I’ll just take pictures during the extended vocal solo. Because that’s a win for me on every level.
In other news, like I said in the previous post I had really grown tired of the old look of the website. That black on black was just too depressing. Even for me. I may add some Unicorns and Rainbows if this still isn’t happy enough to suit my tastes. But I’m thinking we’re probably good.
Lastly, I’ve added even more videos and I updated the player on the music page. You’ll see on the right hand side that there is a direct link to Naked Souls and something called B Sides (old songs and songs that didn’t make the cut for the CD). The pictures will give it away. Something called, Project Active Media is in there as well. Last but not least, a link to our spiritual leader Todd Burge. So, you know, updates.
I’ve updated most of the tabs up there. Photos, videos, and House Concerts. You may have noticed I also added the Google Translator over there at the top right-hand side of the page. Welcome everyone from around the world.
I’ve always hated my Youtube account name. I tried every way I could to change it and keep the videos up that I had there. But I finally gave up and started over with John Radcliff Music. I’ll upload some of those as soon as I can. I have a lot of good ones from house concerts that need to get up there. There’s a couple of me that I like that’ll go up again. But oooh, there’s a new video in there from the CD release party if you wanna see it.
The pictures are from the CD release party. There’s still so much that needs to happen. I might be ready for a new template. In fact, I know I am.
