Steppin' out "solo" before the year ends

Posted by Soda on November 15, 2022 at 6:00 PM

Happy Holidays everybody (yea, I said that) - As you may know (if ya follow), I don't do too much in the way of "solo" outings currently. My main musical focus is my band, Coventry Carols. But, before the year is out I'll be doing two Sodacentric events outside of the band. I'm thrilled to be a part of them. AND, it's not music stuff which makes me even happier honestly as I like to have my toes dipped in lots of different stuff as often as I can. You can find the information in the EVENTS section of the page. Please keep up with Coventry Carols as we also have two awesome shows in December to end the year with. And hey, thanks for being here if you are. I'm real grateful. X

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.

"Baby's Coming Back" Jellyfish cover

Posted by Soda on October 4, 2021 at 4:25 PM

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


Surprise "new" release today!

Posted by Soda on August 6, 2021 at 12:15 AM

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.
