1. Really excited to be playing a show with the ever-incredible Amigo the Devil in a couple weeks. Also, I’m particularly happy with this flyer design, which warrants sharing on its own.

  2. Just made a new run of these things. It’s everything that’s available at http://thejunkyardgospel.bandcamp.com, but people gotta be able to walk away from a show with something.

     
  3. Me and my TV wall made it into an article in the New York Times.

  6. Reminded today of an interesting thought that sits in my head. I’m always trying on a constant basis to “promote myself”, to get people to hear my music, see my photography (and hopefully hire me). And yet, here is this pile of TVs that I’ve built in the middle of the desert and left there, and it is inarguably the biggest mark I’ve left on the world thus far, even though I’m sure most eyes who have seen it have no idea who I am or that I have anything to do with it. It’s strange to wonder if perhaps that will still be true when I’m dead - will 7,000 people hear even one of my songs in my lifetime, let alone 3 million?

     
  7. I haven’t been shooting very much lately (various building projects and a resurgence in music has kept me pretty busy), but here’s one thing I’ve been up to. I’ve been learning and experimenting with wood transfer printing, and pretty happy with how my first round has come out. I’ve still got a lot of kinks to work out, but the process has definitely ignited a bunch of new ideas.

  8. Another brand new song, recorded live in a filthy tunnel under the freeway. A frantic banjo drives through purgatory to pay for its sins.

    If you dig, you can download it for free here: http://thejunkyardgospel.bandcamp.com/album/the-tunnel-sessions

    And if you REALLY dig, please share and help spread the Gospel!

  9. Here’s the first of three videos I shot in the tunnel session from yesterday! A cover of The Stones’ “Dead Flowers”, which I could have sworn was written by Townes van Zandt but Wikipedia corrected me. Enjoy! There’s two more (originals) on the way!
