Ripper Girls

Had a blast at the Ripper Girls concert at Wild At Heart this weekend. Berlin’s got a great indie rock scene going on.

Creative Process

How did we come up with the idea for the Keep It Wild video? It all comes down to Ray Mann‘s inventiveness and skill. We spent months developing the Wolf character, scheduling meetings between my work and family responsibilities. I was able to quickly spitball ideas and Ray had the experience to tell me what worked and what didn’t, adding some great references along the way. Scroll through for a look into the creative process and watch the video here.

Thanks for knocking it out of the park, Ray!

Keep It Wild Video

Happy Friday the 13th! The Keep It Wild EP is now available on all streaming services via RIP Ben Lee Records. It was directed by Ray Mann in Berlin last summer and I absolutely love it. Take a look.

Special thanks to everyone who made this EP possible, first and foremost David Newton, Joel Isaac Black, Jessica Espeleta and David Alexander. Without these fine musicians I’d be pissing in the wind.

Viktoria Cichon did an incredible job with the artwork and Bernd Diekjobst made sure to capture my good side for the press photos. Thank you.

Bite it Promotion are crushing the PR side, State 51 have done a fantastic job with distribution and I‘ve even managed a few sales via Bandcamp, so thanks to them too.

Of course, I can’t do anything without the love and support of my wife Ali Bell who has seen releases come and go like sunsets and still loves me whether they are successful or not – I appreciate that.

I’ll have more news for you next week, but please enjoy the EP and video, and leave feedback in the comments. Have a great weekend.

Keep It Wild – Teaser 4

One week to go until the Keep It Wild EP is unleashed into the world via RIP Ben Lee Records. Here you have the fourth and final trailer and what a fantastic journey it has been. I can’t wait to share this song and video with you!

Today is Bandcamp Friday which means that Bandcamp waives their revenue share, so anything you order on their website goes directly to the artist – that’s me. It’s a good day to pre-order the Keep It Wild EP and, if you don’t already own it, our debut album. You can find them here.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
