A New Podcast: The Output With DJ Unprotected!! 

Okay, so I've been working with a company called Aztec Nation for a couple of years now.  After producing several podcasts for their company, the owner, asked me if I wanted to host my own series.  Several discussions later and support from the whole company, I got the thumbs up to start the podcast!  I am super excited to have a LATE NIGHT style talk show, topic & segment based podcast with guests.  Why?!  Because we all need a little entertainment in our lives.

Listen on the way to work, or while you're working.  I think you'll enjoy the things we talk about.  More beautiful things in the works. Just push play ;)

 

 

Giving Up Music Video Featuring Alisa!! I love ALL OF IT! 

Alisa and her beautiful moves were a perfect fit for this music video.  I had envisioned someone with her beauty and skill matching the emotion of the track, "Giving Up".  She nailed it!

Many thanks to the super talented dancer, Alisa, and The North Pole Dance Studio in San Antonio, TX for allowing me and my team to shoot this video.

 

What An Amazing Day! *Release* 

Today is the day that my first EP, This Is How I Feel, released on all platforms.  It's amazing to think how a small idea grew into four tracks that are being heard by other people.  And it is even more amazing to know that this music is impacting others.  Whether it is motivating people to workout (groovy beats, and thumping house bass :), or having some music to play while they're on a long drive.  As an artist, it's great to know the work is supported.  I am grateful for all of the listeners and giving my music a chance to be heard! 

This project began with the first song "Giving Up".  I was going to release it as a single, but because the lyrics resonated with me so much, I thought I could compile some tracks and ideas to create a project.  I also feel that a lot of work goes into a release, so why not create something where people can listen to multiple songs?  

I was nervous prior to the release, but now I can breathe.  It feels awesome to receive great support from friends, family members, and fans.  It is truly a great feeling!  #thisishowifeel 

If you haven't heard the EP yet, you can check it out on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and all other digital outlets.  I have set this page up just for you! :

What Production Tools Do I Use? 

Good question!!! It's always cool to know what musicians use when they're creating their tracks.  Here's what gets regular use in my studio:

Digital Audio Workstation:  Logic Pro X

Favorite Plug-In Suite:  Waves

Software Synths:  reFX Nexus, Sylenth, and the good ol' ES2 ;)

I used to be a plug-in hoarder from 2010 - 2013 and then I learned some valuable lessons, haha.
