Also, the band has been practicing a lot and things are starting to sound really nice. Currently the line up is:

Erik Roget – Drums

Jon Madden – Bass

Hopefully we’ll be playing some shows very soon.

Time to make a record…

Erik and I have begun recording an upcoming yet-to-be-named full-length album. The drums have been recorded and now it’s time to move on to all the other instruments.

For what it’s worth, this is going be a big, loud, rock record, and I hope you all love it.

New things!

Okay folks. Time to get excited. You can pick up the new EP from Bandcamp, it’s the first rock record I’ve made in about 7 years. I hope you all like it. It’s fun to finally make something loud. It’s fun to have this much energy.

The band is now featuring Kenny Meyers, Michael Andrews, and Erik Roget. I want to thank those amazing guys for making this all possible, and thanks to all of you for listening.

A Long Time Coming

I have decided to finally drop the “concept: bravery” moniker. I’m now performing as the person I’ve always been, just myself. No confines of names.

I hope you guys like the music that will be coming soon. It’s different. Tour dates for December will be posted in the next couple days too, and some new merch is on the way. Exciting things.

concept: bravery gets loud!

You guys excited!? concept: bravery just did something awesome. I decided after many years that keeping this all to myself was selfish, and it wasn’t what’s best for the music. I just played my first show with a full band and it was awesome.

Keep your eyes out for more shows coming soon. It was a lot of fun playing this stuff loud and I (we) can’t wait to do it again.

The band currently features Mike Andrews on guitar, Mike Garfoot on bass, and Erik Roget on drums. Thanks to all of them for making this possible and amazing.

a note about bandcamp distribution

You may have noticed an unfamiliar link to purchase music here, to a new site called Bandcamp. In case you were wondering what the hell Bandcamp is, here you go.

Basically, the bottom line here is the bottom line. Bandcamp is a new company, a small company, and they don’t charge independent artists like me anything to sell through them.

Having my stuff in iTunes is cool, and I’m glad those of you who want to buy music there can do so, but it does cost money to get the music in there. Aside from that, if you buy from bandcamp, I believe 3 amazing things happen: 1) I get more money, which is pretty awesome. 2) Together we help support a really small company run by some folks who are doing amazing things. 3) You get to choose the type of file you download (MP3, WAV, FLAC, Etc…)

Either way, I hope you enjoy the music.

Sorry folks, I know this site was a long time coming, but it’s finally up and running! There are a lot of other exciting things happening too…

I’ve been working on a new record that will hopefully be recorded over the summer, so look for that, and check the discography for all the older stuff.
