Is this What it is?

The Bad... Sadly, Rhinocerotic bass player and friend Timmy Wolf passed away recently. It's been really hard on the family and friends. Please keep them and the rest of us in your prayers. I'm thankful for all the great work Timmy has done on my solo work both live shows and playing on the Strange Horses album.

We were planning on shooting a video for Is this What it is?  this spring. Timmy did some really great vocal and bass work on that track. His idea for the video was really cool and he kept reminding me of it the last three times we talked. It was going to start like this... I would be walking down a street singing the tune then Timmy would appear for his harmony in the chorus and walk along with me until we reached a park where our friends and loved ones were waiting. Simple yet I can see it vividly. Is this What it is? has since taken on a more intense meaning, at least for me. Maybe Timmy was just aching for that day when we will see our loved ones in that sunny park-like setting? Aren't we all? I know that I will look forward to seeing him again without struggles or pain. He will be greatly missed. I'm thankful that we were blessed enough to have a final performance as Rhinocerotic last May. 

The Good... I've released the first single of 2016 and I'm heading back to Rock on this one! Get your air guitar ready and grab a copy!

More to come... especially about the upcoming Philippine trip, why, and how this came into play...
