This was my gift to my father on this past Dad’s Day. He wrote this song in 1985 in Japan at a time when he was working with YWAM. He told me the song came about like this: one evening while reading the bible, God told him to pick up his guitar because He was going to give my dad a song. Within ten minutes, Cease Striving was complete. The lyrics are taken from Pslam 46 and a bit of 47.Read More
We’ve come around to it again, the Sasquatch! Music Festival poster show. I was asked to create one again this year and I drew Beat Connection. Slightly less of a fabricated plan than you would think, but funny nonetheless. There were a lot of amazing designs put out this year so please go view the rest on the festival site here.
These are silk screened, limited edition posters, black and gold inks on thick black stock. I had the band sign the ones I didn’t hand off to the poster show.Read More
Think/Feel (feat. Chelsey Scheffe) by Beat Connection
A little bit beyond excited to finally share this with you. Having gone to the “studio” to record this back in early December, we’ve been gearing up for the eventual release. Well, here it is! (Those quotation marks denote only the warmest of feelings.) Fader premiered the track this morning however Moshi Moshi Records and Tender Age will be releasing it for real very soon. Expect the full length, The Palace Garden this summer.
It was a great time working with Reed and Jordan, two people I admire greatly for the craft they’ve begun to master. They’ll be playing at SXSW and Sasquatch, the latter of which I’ll be joining them for. I’m all fluttery inside about that. If you’ll be there, say hello or just dance. They like it when you dance.
Summer’s a’comin’. Slowly.
