your favourite local comedian/rapper chris trew/terp2it is working on a new album. yours truly will be doing the album artwork! help him with the production funding at his kickstarter page. scheduled to be released at fff fest!
for those unfamiliar with local music wunderkind, will taylor, here’s a descriptive quote from his interview with this week’s Austin Chronicle: ‘we’re not a cover band. i come out of the duke ellington/count basie bandleader tradition where we’re putting our touch on standards.’
will and his group have put their spin on most of the beatles’ catalog in addition to led zeppelin, jimi hendrix, pink floyd and joni mitchell, among others. after his recent incarnation of willie nelson songs in the style of bob wills (read: texas swing), taylor and company have decided to put out an album of willie nelson tunes (of which i will be doing the album artwork and design!). and as of last friday, longtime neil young producer john hanlon signed on as producer of the album!
now taylor is looking for help from friends and supporters – he’s set up a profile on kickstarter to help raise the funds to make the album a reality. if you’d like to help fund the effort, head over to their kickstarter page and donate as much or as little as you’d like. their campaign ends sunday so donate soon!
eupham entertainment prepares to release albums from two rad artists who live and work in new orleans with posters i put together for them. head over to itunes or amazon and grab their digital albums!
i also created the album artwork for both musicians so, if you get a hard copy of the albums, you’ll own a little piece of my work as well!
this one is made with a little extra love for my parents who host an annual bbq cookoff/rib burn off at their ranch in montgomery, texas (north houston). if you happen to be in the area on october 1-2, swing by and enjoy some great barbeque, great tunes and great times.
