It's official... I'm a wiener! That's right, Wiener Records is going to be putting out my new EP "Is My Voodoo Working?" How cool is that?! If you don't know who they are, they're a subsidiary of the badass and awesome Burger Records. It's going to be released on cassette, and I can't wait for you to hear it. I'm also working on some new music videos, as well as more episodes of everyone's favorite mini-episodic adventure show "Ask Shmoe". That's about it for now. Talk to you soon!

It's once again everyone's favorite time... UPDATE TIME!!

Things have been going pretty well in the world of Shmoe. The NEW EP is mixed, mastered by the badass Patrick Haight (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, and tons more), and is ready to go. The only issue has been some of the funding to get it out there. I know in these updates you're supposed to make yourself sound "invincible", but that's not the case. The good news is that I finally have the money to go ahead and put out physical copies of the EP. It'll first be available on cassette, and then vinyl. The EP is called "Is My Voodoo Working" and it includes 6 songs: When the Clock Hits Midnight, Coming Loose, Ghost Town, Death Has Come to Dance, and Near Dawn.

That's about it for now. More news and updates coming soon! Thanks as always.

Long time no talk! Lots of awesome stuff is happening and I wanted to fill you in! First, a brand new Shmodcast will premiere next Thursday the 13th and then every Thursday from then, until the end of time. The Shmodcast is becoming a weekly event, and I can't wait to share some tasty tunes with you.

The next AWESOME piece of news is that the new Shmoe EP is finally complete. The mixes are done and Ben over at Near Alluvium did a stupendous job! The artwork is also complete and I'll be sharing that soon too. The album art was created by the incredibly talented Jhonny Russell! Check out his amazing work if you haven't already!

Thanks as always for sticking with me, more awesome stuff coming soon!

FINALLY!! A new update!

I've got some awesome news for everyone. Sorry we've been MIA for a while, but it's been because we've been hard at work on a whole slew of new stuff.

First things first, there's a brand new EP on the way called "Is My Voodoo Working". It's going to be 6 songs and runs just under a half hour. It's all over the map and I love it; I hope you'll love it too. I'm going into Near Alluvium studio to finish up the mixing and getting it all ready for everyone to check out. I'll let you know where and when you can get it as soon as it's done. Expect the usual suspects of online stores, plus some physical formats that I'm really excited about.

Secondly, I'm proud to announce that a new episode of Ask Shmoe is coming soon, as well as a brand spanking new radio show! If you loved the Shmodcast, you'll love this new half hour packed radio show full of music and me ranting and raving. It'll be great!

That's about all for now, but be on the lookout for more new stuff very, very soon. I'll also be updating this site much more frequently now. Hope you've all been doing well and hopefully I'll be seeing your lovely faces at some shows soon!

Take care!
