Making the most of being the only Jellison not in the Coopersburg Halloween Parade right now.... Fryeburg IPA anyone?

One of two cover singles I’ve released, this cover art reflects a memory I have of listening to “In The Air Tonight” while driving on a summer evening, and I remember seeing the streetlights reflecting off the curves of the car.  I had a lot of fun constructing this take on a classic.  I’ll put the link in my story....

A taste of the build-up for this @themercyme song.  Do you notice the contrast between this and yesterday’s post?

More album art to discover.  I selected this photo I took of some fireworks because I felt like this song was going to take people by surprise with its orchestral opening instrumental interrupted by big distorted guitars.  The remastered album version has a new drum track that really pushes it to the next level.  This photo also reminds me of a lyric in the song that refers to the amount of time it takes for a photon to leave the center of the sun and reach the surface.  How much time would it take from the moment the sun burned out until someone on earth knows it?  Theoretically a thousand years.  How do you know your reality isn’t over already, and you’re just living out those last few chain reactions that lead up to a complete and sudden change?

When in Hershey.... skip the chocolate and head straight for @troegsbeer for a flight.

One of the covers I’ve been messing around with for the longest.  I love this tune! “Hurricane” by one of my musical heroes, @emersonhart .

I’ve caught the bug again. This song won’t leave me alone.

New song cookin’... Hoping to have this out for holiday season.  You don’t get the chorus yet...

I love the images on this feed, and it makes it so fun that she kindly shouts out my music!  If you like Maine, Victorian architecture, chinoiserie, and other words most people don’t know, check it out! 🤓

It’s a chill Sunday, and I’m getting reacquainted with my guitar.  Meditating on “Impostor” in the studio.

The single “I Know I” is about taking the next step in whatever it is you’re working on. Take the risk. The album art is a photo of some custom metal fabrications to be used as sun screens, also at the Talley Center at @villanovau .  It’s a bit tongue in cheek, because we ended up rejecting these and making sure they didn’t “take the next step” and get installed because they didn’t meet our tolerances.  It turns out that risk wasn’t worth taking!

Enjoying the journey of my album art origin stories?  Next up is the first song I ever wrote.  The line “we’re gonna build an empire” prompted me to pull out a recent photo I had taken while visiting the construction progress of the Talley Center at @villanovau and I really liked the alignment of the image to the song’s metaphor-rich lyrics. Link in story, or find it on my full-length album “On A Lark.”

Another backstory: I’m from Maine.  This song is about returning home to your childhood home and how it all seems different. The single’s cover art is a photo I took while visiting @acadianps and was taken by the cairns people had been building by the shore. True to my roots, this track has a lot of vocal tracks: beatboxing, bass, and harmonies.
