I was fortunate to be asked by Rolling Stone about what one needs to build a home recording studio setup in whatever limited space and budget may be available. I hope it helps give some insight & encouragement to the melody makers wanting to get their music recorded!

I started writing for a new album after the conclusion of the UK tour a little over a year ago. I wrote and wrote and recorded virtually every single day for months. It was thrilling. It was therapy. The songs become your friends and the melodies help you find peace and hope in the quiet & dim, painful & confusing places of life, places that if I'm being honest I have found myself in much more than I'd like over the last few years. Penning words & melodies, then picking up different instruments around a room as tools for building songs all to then hear them come to life is something that brings me unbelievable joy. It's where I start to feel a deeper sense of purpose. So naturally, I just simply kept writing until I found I was buried in songs. I thought I had finished recording most of the album so I went on tour last summer and proclaimed from the stage night after night that my new album was almost done. The cheers were rad. It felt great. And then more songs were born... a lot more. Songs that I simply had to chase. So... sike. My apologies. Thank you for your patience. I'm always told this is a good problem to have, but at a certain point it actually is a problem. So on Christmas Eve a few weeks back, I made myself shut off all of my mic pre-amplifers, unplug all of the condenser, ribbon and dynamic microphones around my studio, power down all of the synthesizers and move my guitars & drums outside of arms reach so that I would make myself... stop. And on Jan 2, I started sifting through the mountain of songs and am now finally M I X I N G this new album. I have to say the way it's sounding is making me smile real big. I'm very proud of it and can't wait for it to be ours and not just this thing only I know about. All of the plans are beginning to be set in motion for when that will be. Thanks again for patience and for listening. Thanks for being a part of this. You mean a lot to me.

It's rainy and cold and kind of perfect outside so I made sure to call the piano tuner in because it just feels right to track this instrument tonight. Here we go. #RSLP7

Being 12, sitting on a practice amp inside of a Guitar Center somewhere in TX, whilst likely playing punishing versions of Enter Sandman and Purple Haze, I probably dreamed something like this would happen one day. I feel honored Guitar Center used this incredible photo Jered Scott took at the Gorge in WA as part of the remodeling of their most iconic store on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. If you see a billboard or a wrapped tour bus with this image cruising around LA, snap a photo and tag me plz. Thanks GC!

I got to go to Greece and meet the oldest living olive tree today; I crawled inside of it when no one was looking and just tried to imagine the people that have eaten its fruit over the last 3000 years. I tried to imagine the kind of stories it's overheard from the ones picking from it all this time. Everything felt still and slow during the silence that was equally deafening, whispering just how quickly life moves on. Anyway, I managed to snap a selfie of the tree & I 🍃

Day off in the city I recorded my first record in. I'm just hanging around this parking lot and listening to new song recordings no one has heard yet. Been a minute since I roamed around this town with big dreams while making calendar days. Makes me laugh; after all of this, all I really feel right now is that there's such a long way to go and I'm so grateful for that. What a life. Always the beginning. Thank you endlessly for listening and being a part of this. Forever, y'all. Love.

Been loving building these acoustic-y beatbox-y grooves w/ all the sing-along feel goods from y'all. What a fun tour. SLC was fire; Denver 2nite. End is nigh with all the sighs. 📷 @buggeproductions
