I had the thought that 2019 was just an awful year. Lots of things didn't go my way in the first half of it. I lost a relationship, was out of work and left my band. A lot of negative change, but I didn't want to end the year on a negative note, so I started planning for positive change.
Anchoria was like a baby to me. It had my absolute best friends in it and was conceived with the idea of doing something that challenged us. Now that our album "Dream : Divination" is released, it’s time to send Anchoria back to sea and let her find her own way to wherever the wind takes her.
After 4 years, I decided to release Anatta's entire set preformed on May 21st, 2015 in Watertown, NY with Silverstein. We were fortunate enough to be able to co-headline with them and it was an awesome time!
And lately, I’ve done things and have made moves that have fortunately manifested into happiness. Maybe since I can even remember. 2018 was probably the busiest, craziest, funnest year I can remember and while I’ve gained so much, I’ve also lost some things that meant a lot to me as well.
In case you missed it, my band released a music video earlier today! If you’re looking for Christmas music, consider giving us a listen to. If we’re not for you, check out the rest of A Super Gnarly Christmas by Rosemary Media.
I decided to do a cover of "Heavy Dungeon Echo" by Mansions, one of my favorite bands, as a way to challenge myself vocally. The last few months I've started to post snippets of other covers to my Instagram to boost my confidence knowing that my voice was public and that that was alright.
I am wholeheartedly convinced I have the most gorgeous German Shepherd. I’m extremely grateful for her personality and the goofiness she brings to me. She’s been the best pup I’ve ever known and I’m incredibly proud of her.
And lately, I haven't reached all the goals I had set for myself in 2016. I missed out on a full year of playing shows, which had been immensely therapeutic for me during the last few years. I completely failed myself out of a full year of that and there's been days that has gotten to me.
Originally, Brava's plan was to be my father's working dog for Search and Rescue. However, a couple of months ago we discovered she had Ununited Anconeal Process (UAP) which is one form of elbow dysplasia in her right elbow and that immediately disqualified her from doing so.
