I wanted to do something to bring the website into the new year, make it cleaner, and make it easier to showcase projects. The new website accomplishes everything I was looking to do.

Recently I moved my business across the country from Roanoke, Virginia to the Bear Lake Idaho-Utah area, and I took the leap at going 100% freelance. I wanted my new website to be a better representation of what I'm doing and wanted to do.

This past weekend I participated in the Riot Rooster Indie Craft Fair in my current hometown of Roanoke, VA.

Riot Rooster seeks to celebrate makers of handmade goods, accessories, clothing, gadgets, body products, commodities, and experiences. Riot Rooster aims to offer an old world style shopping experience with face to face interaction with the creator of the goods they are purchasing with focus on supporting artists and a local economy. Most importantly, RIOT Rooster has recognized the importance of creating a vibrant, festive atmosphere for meeting, drinking, eating and shopping--a buzzing, happy, lively community is a tolerant, growing and energetic community.

I first heard about this craft fair about a year ago and had just missed the boat on registering. I took a chance this year and decided to set up the Faceless Creative Pop Up Shop and I'm absolutely blown away by the response.

I did extremely well, and the feedback I got on my artwork, products, and packing absolutely floored me. I've never been more proud of what I do then last weekend and I can't believe my little button packs, posters, and prints were such a big hit.

I'm really blown away.

It's so nuts seeing my work live in the wild. I've seen people walking around wearing my shirts, bands selling my merch, folks hanging my posters on their walls. It's humbling, and awesome.

2016 FAVORITES

1) Touche Amore - Stage Four

Holy shit. This album, similar to Pianos Become The Teeth’s - Keep You, has an unfair advantage in that I can relate to the source material on a deeply personal level. Stage Four is about the loss of singer Jeremy Bolm’s mother to cancer, and it absolutely slays me every time I listen to it. I lost my father almost 12 years ago today, and it’s still the most impactful thing that has ever happened in my life. This album so perfectly encapsulates every singe feeling I’ve ever had during the 12 years since. It’s hauntingly beautiful, and easily Touche’s best so far.

2) Thrice - To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere

I’m so thankful this band is back, that they are writing some of the best music of their careers, and that I got to see them live this year in what was easily one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Thrice is an amazing band, and this record is maybe the best of their career. If you check out one record on this list, let it be this one. It’s been out since March and is still in heavy rotation when I’m listening to music.

3) Gates - Parellel Lives

Man what an album. I’ve been a fan of Gates for a very long time. A friend introduced me to them when they were an unsigned band with an EP out and I saw them play some killer sets over the last couple of years. This album is easily the best thing they’ve done so far and huge step up for them sonically. It’s heavy and soft and beautiful and a great listen all the way through.

4) From Indian Lakes - Everything Feels Better Now

This is was such a logical step for this band in the evolution of their music. Their fourth album now, Everything Feels Better Now is a beautifully mellow masterpiece. While it’s tough to say this is my favorite release from this band, I really love the direction they took on this and hope they continue with the evolution they have made from album to album.

5) Daughter - Not To Disappear

At this point, I’m convinced Daughter is a master of writing some of the most gorgeously heartbreaking music in the world. Everything Daughter has put out has been absolutely amazing and this album is no exception. I loved their last release, If You Leave and truly thing this album is even better. From top to bottom this album just brings you in and makes you feel every emotion and by the end you’re left wanting more.

6) Saosin - Along The Shadow

Here’s a band I never thought I’d see in my top 10 again. 2006’s self-titled album was a great release but after that this band really fell out of favor with me. Their second album was at best, not good, and there was a period where, without a singer, no one was sure if there was ever going to be music from them again. However, in a huge surprise, the band announced former singer Anthony Green was returning and he brought with him a new life for this band. I really didn’t expect to love this album as much as I have, but it’s phenomenal.

7) Norma Jean - Polar Similar

How is this band still so consistently good? Somehow, on their seventh studio album, The Almighty Norma Jean is still writing captivating music and pushing themselves further while still maintaining what has always made them so good. This album might be my favorite of theirs and so far.

8) Run River North - Drinking From A Salt Pond

This is the first band on this list that has never been in a Top 10 list of mine before. I’m not exactly sure who I found out about this band, but I’m so glad I did. The first half of this album is absolute perfection if you enjoy good upbeat indie rock, and the last half shows their maturity and skill in being such a large band and working together so well. This is one of my most listened to albums this year, especially when I’m in a good mood.

9) Dance Gavin Dance - Mothership

What a surprise of a record. I have always been a casual fan of Dance Gavin Dance, but a litany of drama, lineup changes, and ebbs and flows in quality have kept me from truly loving this band. This is their seventh album, and their third with singer Tilian Pearson, and easily their best. It feels like they have finally found their place with this lineup, and it’s a great place that sees them putting out some of the best work of their career.

10) Frightened Rabbit - Painting Of A Panic Attack

Here’s another new addition in terms of never making it on my top 10 before. I’ve always been a fan, but nothing of theirs really hit me like this album did. I also had the chance to see this band live for the first time this year and they really put on a hell of a show. I’ve listened to this album a ton now, and it’s really perfect during this winter months. I’m not sure why none of their previous album really struck me like this one, but I’m certainly thankful this one did.
