I know that this is a totally different thing than I usually post, but I really wanted to share it. This is a project that a friend of mine (Chris Kudlick) and I did for our Film Analysis class at UNC. Our instructions were to take any film from our syllabus and recreate a pivotal […]Read more "Psycho Homage: A Tribute to Hitchcock"
*Headphones Recommended* Genre: Folk Rock I’d like to preface this post by saying that all of the slamming doors and boisterous talking in the background is my roommate and his girlfriend sabotaging me. Joke’s on them, I think it makes it sound like there’s a landslide happening right outside my door. Perfect ambiance for this […]Read more "Landslide by Fleetwood Mac"
*Headphones Recommended* Genre: Singer/Songwriter There’s an interesting story behind how I discovered Lights. Well, maybe not interesting. Ironic might be a better word. She was coming to Chapel Hill for a gig, and one of my favorite bands was opening up for her-X Ambassadors. Anyways, I knew I’d have to enjoy the headliner if I wanted […]Read more "Banner by Lights"
*Headphones Recommended* Genre: Indie Pop Trigger Warning: Get ready for one of the cutest things you’ve ever seen. This is a special video, because it’s my first one in weeks and it’s the first one with a feature on it–not only a feature but my wonderful girlfriend, Taylor Hamlet. She has more talent and ability […]Read more "Lonely One by Dresses"
Hey all! I know I haven’t done any videos in awhile, and I’m not going to break that streak today, unfortunately. There are a few reasons for this: I burnt the *bleep* out of my finger last week and couldn’t play guitar for a few days I’ve been way busy with a film project (ooh, maybe I […]Read more "The UNC Achordants Go Back In Time: 15th Anniversary"
This is a bit of a different post than I normally do, and it’s a short one. I just wanted to take the time to say Happy Birthday to my parents, who both turned 50 last Friday. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me. I don’t know what life would be like […]Read more "Happy Birthday"
*Headphones Recommended* Genre: Folk Rock Release that bated breath, because it’s finally here: the finale of my 3-part passenger set, the one, the only–Let Her Go. This song came from a spectacular little album and absolutely blew up. When I first heard it, I knew there was no way I’d be able to master the […]Read more "Let Her Go by Passenger"
*Headphones Recommended* Genre: Acoustic; Pop I know it’s been a really long time since I’ve posted one of these, but I had a really busy spring break that was big on travel and short on guitars/time. I also said that my next post was going to be Let Her Go, but I haven’t been able […]Read more "Yellow Shirt by The Icarus Account"
*Headphones Recommended* Genre: Indie/Folk Rock; Acoustic For song No.2 of my 3-part Passenger set, I chose one of my favorite songs in my entire repertoire. The picking is just so original and beautiful, unlike anything else I play. It was really hard to learn, but I was really dedicated because it was a birthday gift […]Read more "Patient Love by Passenger"
*Headphones Recommended* WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE Genre: Indie Rock/Folk; Acoustic So I got a little behind last week when I couldn’t get a recording that I was satisfied with, and it only got worse when I woke up sick a few days ago and didn’t like […]Read more "Holes by Passenger"
