Interview with the Pittsburgh Artist Studio
Kind of hate how I sound during interviews. But I had a GREAT time catching up with Mary! Thanks cuz!!
Still working like a dog on the album and really it's becoming something!
Nicole recently made it back from the East Coast, and gave Ian and I a holler.
It's been super great singing again with these guys! Stay posted for exciting upcoming dates and recordings!
Lately I've been working very hard on a new album, which will have lots of new material never previously published, anywhere other than live YouTube videos etc..
There's a lot of work still being done (including backup women singers, drums, lots else), but the sound is already shaping up quite a bit, and you can hear the rough draft of the album right here if you'd like to provide feedback etc..
Other than that, I've been playing with the new band in Hawaii Kilo Fire. Here's a video of us doing a System of a Down cover
Kilo Fire is ready to play any gigs on Oahu right now today, and as usual, the rhY solo show is possible literally anywhere in the world for the right price.
Love you all internet fam!
I've been meaning to put out a Christmas album for more than two decades now. While not the album I had in mind, replete with choir, orchestra, jingle bells, and a full brass band, this is an album of Christmas songs, performed organically, and including my new original christmas song Christmas Alone. Hope you like it, Merry Christmas everyone, and Happy Birthday to me!

Been doing a ton of work with my new producer Chris Lanthier, and also resurrected my Green Screen Setup, so you can expect lots more Green Screen Videos:
Updating the website, recording a lot of new videos. Working on the new Album(s) (still). Finally finished digital distribution for "Corporate America". Only took 3 years! LOL Playing a LOT locally in Honolulu. Also working with a new producer from New Orleans. It's been a great year already, and there's still 2 months to go! <3 Internet Fam!!!
The LeperKhanz are doing a surprise show on September 28 with many other Irish bands at the Get ShamRocked festival.
Other bands include The Young Dubliners (who also headlined with the Rogue Rebellion in the past), the Fighting Jamesons, and Flogging Seagulls.
The Gates open at noon, and LeperKhanz should be on around.... ?

I've been gigging a ton all over Waikiki, both solo, and with a couple of different groups.
Rainbow Country Poor Souls is a new rock/country/reggae group I'm doing with Ian and Donovan, and we might have a new drummer Omar as of this week.
Trouble in Paradise is a new bluegrass/hawaiian/acoustic group I'm doing also with Ian, but with Nicole. Lots of big harmonies!
I've also been sitting in with Cole Black and the BlackOuts, jamming with various artists at various open mics, and dropping in on some random karaokes with my Waikiki crew.
Lots of dates at Da Cove, a few at OnStage, and also I usually don't miss the Mirage Coffee open mic, and still practice there on occasional mornings I have off. So be sure to check out the calendar!
I was planning on doing some more work booking and touring, and also pursuing some personal goals (fitness and financial). But as often occurs when I start making plans, life takes over. In this case, I've been very inspired to do more writing and recording. I've got THREE new songs in just the last week or two, and also am reworking some older material in a new way that I think is going to be super fun at the solo country shows.
I'm also still actively pursuing finishing the first country album, but the more I work on it, the more new things I find I want to add, change, or improve.
I'm also working with several different studios now and getting some really great input from a variety of talented and insightful producers.
I will be doing a series of live shows in Oregon in Rocktober, so come see me if you're in Oregon!
Howdy Internet Fam! Thanks for coming to the new website. I'm about to embark on an infinite tour. Playing dates non-stop all over the planet. Until Elon gets me a ticket to Mars. Then I'll go tour there for a while!
