The Blood Arm

Infinite Nights

Happy Birthday to The Blood Arm‘s fourth album “Infinite Nights”- released on this day in 2013! 

Written largely on laptops when we first moved to Berlin, the record took an introspective and experimental turn. There’s something for everybody here- hard rockers, acoustic ballads, bedroom pop and even a surf workout. The album was made in the early days of crowdfunding, and since it was paid for by fans, we still hold it close to our hearts. 

Released via R.I.P. Ben Lee Records , “Infinite Nights” spawned two singles, the guitar-driven “Midnight Moan” and the gonzo-country-romp “Matters of the Heart”. Follow the link in our bio to see the videos for both, directed by Ivan Flugelman . CD copies of this album are still available via The Blood Arm’s website

Ten Years in Berlin

Ten years ago today, I moved from Los Angeles to Berlin in search of a better life. I’m happy to report that I found it.

A big kiss goes to my wife Alison Bell for expanding my horizons. 

Endless thank yous go to my best pal Dyan Valdés, who got here first. 

Zebastian Carlisle and Joel Isaac Black, I love you guys, thank you for your continued support and encouragement along the way. 

There are too many other people to list here, but you know who you are, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

Here’s to another ten!
