Yes, well it’s back to business. Working on “The Green Thing” epic again and having a blast. But first!… it’s off to New York we go for some fun & adventure! And then, it’s back to business. But seriously, the coolest series of events unfolded with that project recently. First; ever since I started this little station over here on the internet I’ve wanted to be featured on Kids Music That Rocks – and guess what? It turns out that last week I was featured and didn’t even know it! It was for the first song I’ve released from this little “The Green Thing” project. He gave it the title: “If The Flaming Lips Made a Kids Album”… Isn’t that the coolest thing?! Now if that weren’t enough, the #2 pick for his favorite album of 2008 emails me and tells me how much she digs “Call Me They”. Her name is Nancy Falkow and her newest record is a collaboration with Fran King. It’s called Sunflow (awesome video/song here). You’ve got to listen to this record. It’s absolutely beautiful. If you like my music you’re going to love this. They site Harry Nilsson and Paul McCartney as influences (which most of you know are my very favorites). She’s toured with Daniel Lanois as a vocalist and he’s worked with George Martin and opened for Tears For Fears.
This “Hit Record” song was my final contribution to the Nur Ein project/contest. The only specifications were that “Song must include at least one distinct change in musical genre.” The overall consensus I think was that I changed genre’s a lot but that it was from one Todd McHatton song to another Todd McHatton song, and so on. Needless to say, my ride ended at the final four. However, a most deserving artist took top honors. His name is Frankie Big Face and he too has some outstanding music.
And, one more thing, Grass Stained Twilight is now up on Bandcamp in it’s entirety with pictures from the cd and everything… check it out.
Thank you all for the comments and emails. I really do enjoy the feedback.
