UNTOUCHABLE – New Single + Video FEB 10.

If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to or why I haven’t posted in the last three months, I’m pretty excited about my new release coming out THIS FRIDAY – February 10. Conveniently scheduled the same day as the Lego Batman Movie because, of course, my video is a LEGO STOP-MOTION ANIMATION!   WOOOOOO!!!  So excited. The full video will be on Youtube and Facebook, with the single being released on itunes, apple music, Spotify, and all the big ones.

Check out my KING DYLAN FANPAGE to see the video “Untouchable Teaser”

And for anyone in the Calgary area who needs to see me live, I’m opening for Juno-Award winner SHAWN DESMAN at Marquee on Thursday February 16th.  Should be fun!  Click here for TICKETS

Facebook Sucks. But Suicide Sucks more.

I REALLY wanted to gripe about Facebook/the Internet and the way everyone abuses their freedom of expression and opinions about nonsense, using buzzwords to sound like they know what they’re talking about, “15 things you didn’t know about this useless celebrity”, “This idiot got arrested for this stupid shit”, “I’m battling depression – I’m a victim” and trendy links to more bullshit, but instead of ranting I’ll just write about it in this sentence I just finished.

On that note, Depression/Suicide is serious shit. Whether or not it’s a last ditch effort for attention, or simply an escape from the shackles of this MESSED up world, ultimately it’s the end of a life. Which is what crushes everyone who loves that person, regardless of why. Now, I’ve written songs that brush on this topic (”Neck Tie“, “The Good Life“) because admittedly at some points I’ve asked myself “What am I even doing here?” and “What have I ACTUALLY done for this world?”. But there’s usually a sense of Hope or Love that brings me back.

…and Segue… My friend and amazingly talented Photographer Suzanne Sagmeister recently asked me to get involved in a project of hers called “Conspiracy Of Hope” which I didn’t hesitate to hop on board with. Basically the idea is give Hope to people who have been affected by or dealt with Suicide. She is doing a photography project (which I believe I am a part of) and on MONDAY, August 18th, we’ll be recording a song with a bunch of Talented artists/Producers (think “Band-Aid”, We are the World, type thing). I’m really looking forward to that. This whole project is important and wonderfully moving & inspiring.

On a MUCH MUCH MUCH Brighter and unrelated note, I’ve received the Masters back for The DC Show’s Drinkognito album So I will be sending that off to get Manufactured shortly!! Wahoo! Thanks to DJ Nato in Edmonton at Up In Arms Studios for doing that!

GQ and I are also looking forward to the Podcast Interview/Performance with FYFC Lights Out Radio THIS Friday, August 15th. It’s NOT LIVE so go follow their page to be the first to hear it when it’s put up this weekend. Gonna be full of laughs and music!

Well… Here’s a Comic Book Version of the Doomsday Cartel (The DC Show) that I drew one night. DC Show

The DC Show returns with HARDCORE-NESS

What a weird year. My last original song release was “Necktie” in November 2013, and before that, my album in March 2013. Since then I’ve been writing a whOooOole bunch, and while I have written a few King Dylan songs, collaborated with Tupelo Honey’s Dan Davidson and his Production partner Ari Rhodes for a couple more tracks, I’m happy to say my P-RHYME-ARY focus since November has been writing & recording new songs with my best friends from High School: GQ, MC Mossberg, and the infamously absent Buttnz.

THE DC SHOW
DC Show

Yes, That’s right, The original Doomsday Cartel has reunited on some music for the first time since 2006. And Heck, it may even be the last time, but let’s not be too hasty. While there were rumblings of a DC Show reunion since March 2013, even some Live Performances, the New Album entitled DRINKOGNITO! is only just nearing completion and release date now. I’m actually REALLY excited to release it, and I was super thankful to be writing more Energetic, aggressive music, as my Solo stuff I’ve released previously was a little more toned-down and heartfelt. HOORAH FOR HARDCORE RAP! I Shouldn’t need to mention this, but I was happy and proud to Produce the entire album myself, with a little help from some excellent Guitar players and Female Singers. Guest Artists and Musicians include Moka Only (formerly of Swollen Members), Erin Porter, Ashla, Myles Olsen (of Penny Fortune), Kyle Heese (of Broken Ride), and Ron Tarrant (of Lost In Film – formerly of Broken Ride)

Look for some Videos soon, and a Fall release date.

Other cool news to report: My Piano Cover for Down With Webster’s “Everybodys Angels” has just surpassed 11,000 views, which makes it my 2nd highest viewed video after the Moves Like Jagr parody. Apparently i have 9Gag, and San Diego Comic-Con to thank for that.

Anyways, More news next time!
