Four on the Floor now available on iTunes!

Wow, so much to talk about!

My album, Four on the Floor, just dropped on iTunes, Amazon, and all other digital music retailers. I’m so excited! Please click this link, click “view on iTunes,” and write me a review: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/four-on-the-floor/id352894867. That would help so much!!

Also, I just got the first-ever hard copy of my album in the mail the other day, and it looks so great! I’m so happy about that. Now it’s time to order a whole bunch of albums to send out to fans, friends, licensing folks, industry contacts, etc. People have already put in orders for them so I can’t wait to get them out there!

The other HUGE news is that I finally, after two and a half years, left my day job to pursue music full time. I’m so glad I took action on the most important thing in my life. This was absolutely the right decision at the right time for the right reasons and I’m so happy. I’m really looking forward to working on music stuff all day every day, whether it be writing, recording, producing, singing for other people’s projects, networking, etc etc. This is going to be awesome.

Finally, I wanted to share with you one of the best and funniest videos I’ve seen in a long time. This is my friend Danny from New York who now lives in LA and does NOT espouse the views expressed in this video. He’s playing a character, people! Now watch and be happy:

I’m really going to try to do these video blogs regularly since they’re fun, I have a LOT to say, and I think they’re a much better way to show my personality and let fans and potential fans get a feel for who I am as a person than just writing in a blog. I feel like people who meet me in person are far more interested in listening to my music than people who don’t know what I’m like in real life, so it’s important to let people I probably won’t ever get to meet in person know what I’m like through making videos. I know that my favorite artists are my favorite artists in significant part because I LOVE what I know of their personalities. By the same token, once I know something I don’t like about their personalities, it’s really hard to like them as much. Cases in point: Madonna seems smart, funny, thoughtful, and nice. I really like her and feel good about supporting her career. Kanye West did something really mean and rude to someone who didn’t deserve it at all (Taylor Swift). Though he makes great music and is not always like this, it’s hard not to think of how much that annoyed me when I think of him, which makes me less eager to support his career. Not everyone who sees these videos is going to like me, but that was never going to happen anyway. Some people will like me/these videos, and they’re the ones I’m going after. Enjoy!
