Boscoe is here. 

Well, folks... the day has finally come! I launched my first "solo" album. It's been such a fun, interesting, weird, challenging, rewarding, scary process that I can't WAIT to do again. Speaking of, I've already begun laying down tracks for the next album: "Boscoe 2: Eclectic Boogaloo!" (Ok, that's just a working title, but you gotta admit, it has a ring to it...)

I love making music. And as much as I truly hope people like what I do, the most important thing for me is the therapeutic effects the writing, playing, recording has on me. Some of my songs are pretty dark... dark enough that my best friend straight up asked me "why do you do this to yourself?" The answer is simple... it's the only way I know how to communicate. Drums were always there for me... feeling frustrated? Bang it out. Pissed off? Beat the shit out of the skins. Fortunately along the way, I found a way to exorcise the "feeling sad, lonely or depressed?" demons in another way. A great example is on this album.

"That Look From You" is based on a true story, well, technically TWO stories. It was triggered by one and the scene that I set up is from another. The event that inspired it came from the chance sighting of a very recent girlfriend whom I cared for a great deal. As I drove past a local gas station I just happened to see her happily bounding across the parking lot and leap into the arms of her new man. The timing...the coincidence...just insane. It hit me in the gut like a lead softball. Instant betrayal, sadness, depression, loneliness took over as I finished my drive home. I went straight to the "Cantina" (my personal studio, bar, entertainment's NOT a man cave! Ok, it's a man cave...) and I picked up the guitar. I put the capo (Google it) on a fret (Google it) that I normally don't utilize. I put my fingers in a random position... seriously, a chord I've never played and hit the strings. It spoke to me. My brain took over: "make this chord happen" and I found it. Then another. Then another. It just happened. Then I started singing a melody (usually nonsense words until I find the melody I like) and then started crafting the story based on what I saw and how I felt. 

As I started the story, an old, long forgotten memory popped into my (quite sizable) noggin. The time, long ago, that I was on stage playing drums and I saw my long time girlfriend, now ex in the crowd, right in front of me with someone new. Then they started dancing and kissing to our music and I couldn't escape. I couldn't look away. I couldn't run. We were in the beginning of our set. All I could do was hit the drums. So I did. Harder than I've ever hit anything in my life. Those feelings rushed back and collided with my new ones and the words poured out. The song was finished within an hour, two at the most. Sometimes it works that way. It just comes. And as bad as it sucks for something like that to happen... at least I was able to get it off my chest and possibly save thousands of dollars in therapy sessions? 

Anyway, if you haven't already, spend some time with "That Look." Maybe it'll help with a memory you have. Then again, maybe it won't and you'll just wonder "why the hell does he DO that to himself?"

Love you all.

Boscoe is near... 

I finally revealed my "secret" to the "world" yesterday. On 7/15/21, I officially launched my social media campaign. OK, now that sounds WAY too professional...I posted my video and website on Facebook and Instagram. But to me, that was a HUGE step. That simple act makes this real. I'm no longer just a supporting cast member in a musical group. It's me. Spotlight is on THIS guy. Oh well, no taking it back now. Seriously, I can't...I'm old and don't know how to remove my posts!

Regardless of any fears I may have, I'm also relieved, excited and curious. Relieved that I finally had the guts to do it, excited to see the love and support (and "likes") from my friends and family that will boost my confidence and curious to see what people who AREN'T obligated to "like" me think. It's one thing to play your album/songs for your buddies and have them say how great they are, but when it's a total stranger...that's when it really feels good. I still get goosebumps thinking back to my old Flying Blind days. Having total strangers come up to us and sing our song to us. Hearing our music on a radio station in a city on the other side of the country for the first time and it was a "request." (BTW kids, "requests" are things people did back in the olden days...they'd call a radio station and ask them to play their favorite songs! What's a radio station? What's a radio? Oh, shut up. Go TikTok or somethin'.)

Thank you and love you! 


Boscoe is coming!! (Part deux.) 

The CDs are in! I know, I know... NOBODY buys CDs anymore. However, I'm old school...(well, I got the OLD part right...) anyway, I like HOLDING something (and using too many capital letters to show inflection, obviously.) I've also been drinking scotch. Tonight's half-drunken blog is brought to you by a brand spanking new bottle of Kilchoman Px Sherry Cask. I know most of you don't care what I drink... kinda like how I REALLY don't care what you ate at dinner, even thought you shared a VERY nice picture of it to social media. But maybe, just maybe, someone does and is looking for something yummy to imbibe. If that's the case, I'm always happy to share and you could always shoot me an email and ask whisky questions. Or any questions really. Wow, I got off topic...

CDs are IN! They aren't available to buy yet, but I have them in my greasy (literally...Ruffles) hands and I'm so happy. Can't WAIT to share this album with you. Thank you SO much for the pre-orders I've already received! The digital album has been to delivered to numerous streaming platforms so far and I BELIEVE they will be live soon. I set the pre-order date for that to July 4th. Also, if you haven't already seen it, please take a sec and check out my merch! I have some t-shirts and a coffee mug with my big 'ol mug of a face on 'em.

Well, I'm gonna get back to drinkin'... Thanks again for all your support. Means the world to me!


Boscoe is coming!! 

Well hello there! Thanks so much for checking out my site and my songs. This project has been so incredibly fun, exciting, scary (at times), rewarding and even a bit therapeutic. So I truly thank you for giving me a shot. Or if you've known me for years, thanks for always sticking with me!

When I set out on this adventure, I truly never thought I'd actually release an entire album. It started out as a motivational tool to try to get my band (Flying Blind) back into the studio again. But the more I recorded, the more fun I had. I also kept writing and pulling out songs and ideas from the past and wanted more...and more... I LOVE the recording process and I couldn't stop. I also realized that the songs I was writing and revisiting were extremely personal and autobiographical. I just felt like keeping them for myself (at least for now) and telling MY story with MY voice. So, an album was born!

I can't wait to share it with you! But of course, these things take time... so much to do, to prepare, to figure out (I've been out of the game for a WHILE now...wait, people DON'T buy CD's anymore?!? haha). But the album is currently being submitted to all the usual streaming services and I actually AM printing up some drink coasters, uh, I mean CDs. So keep your eyes and ears open and I'll check in every once in a while. Thanks again and see you soon!
