Last week, my newest album, Acquiescence. was released. To a humbling reception and great feedback, the album was quite a success...moreso because I actually got the darn thing out. lol
Anyway, I just wanted to give you a little glimpse into the making of this album. In Part I of the making of Acquiescence, I share how the album's inspiration and inception all began.
What started as a change in my morning routine transpired into an albums worth of new songs. Instead of jumping on the computer, I decided to more or less "jump into my mind", as it seemed there were still a few things I needed to get out of my creative mind that I couldn't quite touch within my 2016 release Citizen 603: Somewhere In The Near Future.
So, as much as the songs from Acquiescence seemed like an accident or come out of thin air; in hindsight, the songs and content was always there.
I hope you enjoy this first part. There are more to come
I now present to you ACQUIESCENCE.
Clocking in at close to 80 minutes and 16 tracks to boot, Acquiescence is one of my most sincere and honest albums to date; both musically and conceptually.
Ranging from genre's like hard rock to bluegrass, swinging jazz to death metal; it's musical ADD...not really. Even with the wide array of music styles, I think I was still able to create a nice cohesive album with tunes and genre's flowing into one another seamlessly.
The album is now available in a several different formats: CD / Digital from *Bandcamp and also on iTunes, Amazon and all the other major retailers.
I recommend downloading from Bandcamp, because you'll receive the follow choice BONUS ITEMS not offered anywhere else:
*BANDCAMP DOWNLOAD BONUS ITEMS:

Acquiescence recently hit iTunes and is available for pre-order now.
