Shady Pines Media made a video to “Wild Ride,” a trippy tune I recorded using some samples from a relaxation cassette, an old drum kit, some bongos and a synth. Shady Pines Media is Callie, Kamran, and Brian (Chonk)’s video and audio production group in Portland, OR.

Here’s a rad clip of our reunion show in Berkeley shot by Callie at Shady Pines Media. The crowd was fully energized, and amazing. It felt amazing to play with these guys after so many months. Even though we live in different states now, there will be more shows.. mark my word!

I played my new tune “Home is Where the Car is” on the new Shady Pines Media web series ‘Shows on the Road’! Watch me fly down the street at terrifying speeds while calmly playing my guitar and serenading the entire Internet. All in a day’s work.
