Just wanted to highlight the awesome cover that Guts & Glory did for the ‘Collide A Scope’ EP (secret cover options are also up on their site).  Thank you ladies, it was an honor to work with you!

At long last…

After a little over 1 year of steady recording, experimenting, writing, rewriting, and rewriting, and rewriting.  Thousands of conversations with my producer like “can we add a bit more whomp in the outtro?”, or “the ah-ah-ahs sound a little fuzzy, can we make them creamier?” —- we’re done!

Not only that, but FACTOR think’s it’s good enough to actually give me money to get this thing out the door. Worth mentioning this is not X-FACTOR we’re talking about here .. its just FACTOR ;) — the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings (I’m Canadian). Thank you FACTOR for giving this album a +1!!  It’s the first good review of hopefully many more to come.  

It’s too early to pin down an exact release date, but I can tell you it’s going to be named “Collide A Scope”. I can also tell you there are are 6 songs all of which have passed my personal 'spine tingle' test.

More to come..

Before the first single from the 2014 EP is released (very soon). It’s worth celebrating the accumulated success of the Painted Thief EP - which is currently getting over 12k plays per month around the world in coffee shops, retail stores, living rooms etc. Thanks to music services like Songza, Pandora, and Spotify.
