  1. @rp27 im working on it!!!
  2. hey party people, I really love this forum, but I've been thinking about switching us over to a different platform called Muut. Do any of you web developers have any experience with Muut? What I really love about Muut is that it integrates with Shopify in a way that lets us use 1 login for all of BK.com. That is really appealing to me. Especially with the new Bright and Early club, I want all of us to have one simple BK account - whether someone is just a guest buying a tshirt, someone who loves posting on the forum, or a B&E member that wants to manage guest list spots or chat with other members, etc..... This forum is built in InvisionCommunity which is cool, but..... OK nerd friends, please chime in - or if you aren't a nerd like us, chime in if you have an opinion either way from a usability standpoint. xoBK
  3. Starz!!!!!! So glad you like this jam. indeed it is not out yet, but it will be coming out in the next few months as is the whole freakin album!!!!!!
  4. i mean, people have commented on it, but know one has inquired about the deeper meanings...
  5. @philip it's called a Fender Swinger - also known as Arrow or Musiclander. only made in 1969 with left over Mustang and Duo Sonic parts!!!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fender_Swinger
  6. nice list! they are all babies of mine so it's hard to pick my fave. i also like them for different reasons - like, some i'm really proud of the songwriting, some i'm proud of the energy, or the way a lyrics came together, or the feel... Sometimes it's a sick solo that someone else played that totally made the song 1,000x better (see Kitt Kitterman and Mike Stroud!). it's heard to say. As a general rule, I know I would definitely put "Thirteen" in the top 5. Probably also "Full Circle" and "Penny on the Train Track". Would be a tough tie between "Falling" and "In Other Words".... But then there's songs like "The Rules" and "Down".... i might have to make a list of favorite Ballads and a list of favorite rockerz.... hmmmmmmm. 🤔 ❤️

  12. Hey y'all! sorry I was away for awhile. I've been working on so much stuff. prepping new album for 2019. NoiseCo has a ton of cool stuff lined up as well. We have 3 new artists on the roster... Modern Love Child, Amy Cook, and The Get You. Some of you may remember the Fred Eltringham, drummer of all Sha Sha tours and drummer on half the On My Way recordings. He can be seen in the "Wasted & Ready" video. Well, The Get You is Fred's new cover band. Their album comes out this Friday. I'll post a link on here once it's available. I sing on one of the songs, as does Sheryl Crow and Kacey Musgraves. Amy Cook, you'll know from the Austin scene and maybe from our collabo, "Getting To You". She's one of my favorite singers evah... Her new album kicks major ass and will be released in a few months. Modern Love Child is a brand new artist from Venice, Cali. His real name is Jonny Shane and he's raaaaad. All he has at the moment is an Instagram account. I'll keep you posted on this cool musik. xo

  21. it's TRUE! ATO is releasing a special Record Store Day Sha Sha! :-) @OldHat you can totally call your local shop and tell them to order one for you. then you don't have to wait in line or miss out!!! haha!
  22. @jfra good observation about the drum sound on Ben Kweller. there are a few reasons... #1 reason: Sha Sha and On My Way were both recorded on 2" analog tape. Ben Kweller was the first album i made with Pro Tools. the digital realm is by nature more punchier. BUT, the micing techniques were different on all 3 albums. Sha Sha had sort-of a 90's micing style, On My Way had a 60's micing style - which is very distant sounding... and Ben Kweller was a more "modern" micing style, fo lack of a better word. and yes, while the drums from Ben Kweller may sound the best... i do agree that my playing could never come close to John David Kent or Fred Eltringham. xoBK
