Chicago! Thursday night at Madcats Music Lounge was a blast! Great seeing everyone who made it out- can’t wait till next time!
Speaking of next time… it’s today! (Well tonight lol) but I’ll be playing the Montrose Saloon at 8 PM tonight so if you’re around the Chicago area make sure to stop by and say hi!
Being on the road for these gigs is a ton of fun… to be honest the most challenging part though is trying to remain disciplined to keep writing, eating right, and working out! Basically don’t wanna lose my fitness in the busy schedule but ya know… in the end it’ll be worth it.
Anyways that’s all I’ve got today- cheers to y’all for coming along on this journey. See ya on the road!
Welp we are just shy of two weeks removed from the third stop in my “Fatal Love” tour. Looking forward to the next chapter happening up in Chicago. There’s gonna be a few really cool announcements made at the Madcats show along with a reveal of some cool stuff I’ve been working on so make sure you get there early and plan to stay the whole night cause it’s definitely going to be worth it! (Also they’ve got great food there so where else are ya gonna be for a Thursday night?)
The first stop of the tour in Nashville with my band was a huge success! (Check out a few photos below thanks to my buddy Nate with @claytoncorners). Working hard to make these shows the best that they can be!
Want to give a shoutout to everyone who’s been following along thus far in my journey and to say I see you and I appreciate you! I’ll be posting bi-weekly updates here so if you’re just now catching wind of my music blog make sure to subscribe so you can catch all the updates!
Well spring is in full swing here in Nashville. Finally seeing thunderstorms and rain showers rather than storm warnings… which is a good thing lol. But I could do without the tornado warnings.
In a couple weeks I’ll be expanding outwards from Nashville and attempting to find some gigs in St Louis, Missouri. Rather exciting news! We’ll see how it all plays out but everything is an adventure regardless so it will be a blast I’m sure.
In more immediate news, I’ll be headed back into the studio to work out a couple more tracks. This time they’re definitely less extensive in the production side of things (I mean what isn’t… have you heard Gypsy Heart??) Anyways, it’ll be mostly piano and vocals… but we might decide to throw some strings and guitar cause hey- Why not? I’m crazy.
This week looking to set up a live video shoot to record a couple live band songs— it’s kind of last minute but if it works out I’ll be sharing it here! So make sure to subscribe to this really sporadically posted, hopefully entertaining, but always erratic, blog of my musical journey!
Wow. Where to start for this one. 2020 has been INSANe so far this year… global pandemic, murder hornets (?), riots, cultural awareness, black lives matter. There’s been a whole heck of a lot to process, understand, learn, and opportunities to grow.
This post is special for me as it is my genuine pleasure to announce my first wide release, cross platform single!!! Gypsy Heart is available wherever you stream music on July 3rd, 2020– There has been an incredible amount of work put into this track and I am so immensely excited to get it out.
This track is really personal to me and is one that I needed to release to both start the creative journey of my upcoming EP (yes it’s in the works), as well as get this tracks message off my chest. It’s a story of a runaway, of a Gypsy Heart, or myself. I hope you can both relate to the message as well as appreciate the musicality that (admittedly) took a ton of planning and work. Also, as in my case, hit the freeway, roll the windows down, and let it rip!!! By far that’s my favorite way to listen cause it’s a JAAAMMMM!
Whew! It has been a hot minute since I last updated this blog. Been a crazy past few months to say the least… Got the Coronavirus Pandemic, almost all shows cancelled, and live music becoming almost officially extinct. Starting on the upswing though so things are starting to look promising!
A couple days ago me and the producer I’m working with finished the mix on what will be my first multi-platform single: Gypsy Heart. I’m super ridiculously excited about this one and really looking forward to getting it out there and seeing how you all respond. I can guarantee it’s unlike anything else currently being released, one hundred percent original, and pretty personal to myself as well. It’s a song that I needed to release before moving on with some more… let’s say commercially viable options. But set down the date! 7.3.2020 – July 3rd, 2020 Gypsy Heart will become available on all platforms. The plan is to have a lyric video uploaded to YouTube to accompany it as well at the outset and then hopefully shoot a full music video to be released perhaps 6-8 weeks after. We’ll see how all that goes.
In other news here in Nashville life has slowed down tremendously due to the COVID Crisis. Still managing to write a lot and even getting a few virtual co-writes in, but focusing primarily on my own music to be released. We’ve already started pre-production on what should be my 2nd wide single release… And that one’s gonna be a hit. Lol, well I hope it is… 🙂
Anyways, that’s it for now… Cheers to you all thanks for reading and hope you’re doing well! -Kent
