So, yup, it’s BC Friday, which means bands get all their scratch without BC taking a cut. We are thrilled to release our debut single, “The Well” from our forthcoming album. We wanted it to be special so made it a bit of a maxi-single type release. Next Friday, 3/11, the single will be available on your favorite digital/streaming/etc. platforms. For the first week, it will live on Bandcamp only. We hope you check it out, it means a lot to us. Keep an eye on our sites and socials as we spill the beans on more music, shows, merch and beyond.

Hey everybody! Today is a big day! It's the very first day that I can officially tell ya about my new musical journey Coventry Carols - This has been such a long time in the making and the obstacles have been so many, and so vast, that being able to type these words...to say this out loud feels so incredible and rewarding. Our debut record will be out in the Spring. We have a LOT to tell you and we will be doing that through our socials, website, mailing list, etc. Get ready and stick with us. It'll be worth it. We want to share with all of you and connect, just follow the swan. Let's do this! All our socials are now live! Share. Tell everyone! THANK YOU! Very special thanks to my band.

Well...anyone that knows me, knows that I love the early 90's band Jellyfish. I've also always said anyone that would ever try to cover a Jellyfish song has a bit of a screw loose. Apparently screws fall out all the time because I had the honor of contributing a cover of their song, "Baby's Coming Back" from their 1991 album, Bellybutton. To celebrate the online Jellyfish FB community which just turned 10 years old, admin Pablo Melons put together something called JELLYFEST and asked if I wanted to contribute, and so, I did. What I delivered was my own rendition with my own stamp on it. It's a bit raw, gritty, imperfect and full of feeling. I took a chance and really hope everyone will appreciate my offering. So please check it out below and please also check out all the artists that lent their talent. What a fantastic thing to be a part of. x

Hey everybody! Surprise! I thought, what could I do? I've been going crazy and very hard at work on a brand new record. So, there's that. But for today I tapped the vault for a "new" old release. For the very first time the Violet Daydream record, "Meow" is available in it's edited format which was only ever used for in-store play and radio to promote the record at the time. SO, please let yr virgin ears enjoy a very unoffensive version of this..."cult classic". Thanks for checking it out. Thanks for giving a shit and have a great weekend.

Last week I did a really cool, in depth interview for Stack Attacks Music. I think it's a decent read. Really hope you'll check it out. Very special thanks to Stacie Ackerson for her efforts and passion and a great interview. Much more on the horizon. Have a great weekend folks!

Greetings Earthlings, Happy Pride month. VERY happy to share with you the news that I have a short story in the new anthology, POST APOCALIPSTICK out tomorrow from Nocturnal Sirens Publishing. My contribution, "MY Apocalypse" is a story about a young man beginning his journey to come out starting with his English teacher in a term paper. It's also about snotty valley girls and...aliens. Trust me, it makes sense! It is also the first time I will be using the name Jon Soda James artistically. The book is a collection of about 13 different authors letting their freak flags fly. THIS is your new werido bible. This one is for all the freaks, geeks, color kids and outsiders. Stay true to you, we hope this book may be a source of inspiration, know you are not alone.

Finally! My Winter project has been realized. I'm very excited to tell youz that I have placed New York's very first Free Blockbuster! I repurposed/upcycled an old newspaper dispenser that was abandoned on the highway, and tada, a Free Blockbuster was born. Huge thanks to Jack Jack's Coffee in Babylon Village Long Island NY. This is the perfect place for the box, It's free to the community and I know will be a big hit. Thanks to Free Blockbuster for the guidance. As a physical media nerd this seemed like such an obvious move for me. Jack Jack's is full of delicious food and drink and are vegan and vegetarian friendly. The owner Michael was such a good sport and fully embraced this idea. I'm so grateful for open minded places like this who cater to all things indie...art, music and beyond. Make it a Blockbuster night! Tea and a movie at Jack Jack's Coffee House. I also threw some of my albums in there, go grab 'em!

Hey everyone, hope all is well. Happy New Year. 2020 is finally behind us, thankfully. I've made a few basic updates to the site today. No big deal. I am also quietly and privately working on a few things, that when the times comes, I will be happy to mention. I am taking my time. Hope to see you all soon and hoping the world heals itself very soon. xo
