As some of you may know, my youngest brother, Matt, is a musician.
To say that Matt chose music as a path in life wouldn't really be accurate. Rather, I believe it chose him. Although all of my siblings and I have always enjoyed music, it affected him in a different way. As far back as I can remember, my dad's music collection always filled the house. So much so, in fact, that as kids we couldn't get to sleep unless something was blaring through the stereo or on the record player. Oh, to fall asleep to Beethoven!
After a year-and-a-half of hard work and collaboration my brother, Matt, and his friend, Chris Lee, have released their first album on iTunes and CDBaby.com. Entitled Here We Are, the album is a great mix of blues, indie, rock and folk. Right now it's only available as a digital download. In September, the physical CD will be available on CDBaby.com. I was honored to do the artwork & design for the album.
It's roughly 700 miles from Waco, Texas to Columbia, Missouri. Over the last year there has been a tidal wave of music, energy and communication flowing in the space between these two cities. “Here We Are” is a unique collaboration between two musicians who have never met.
Check it out. And, if you're so inclined, give it a listen. My favorite song is Here We Are.
