what am I supposed to be doing on this blog?
My cousin Camryn was diagnosed with a very rare form of children’s cancer in her kindeys, lungs, and liver. She is currently doing great in the hospital but we still need your support! Head over to her blog: http://camryncan.tumblr.com/ which is where we post here day to day achievements on her road to a 100% recovery. She’s also on twitter: @CamrynCan
Reach out to her and let her know that she is kicking ass!

Tomorrow the first single “Racecar” is being released for you all to enjoy. I’m really excited for you guys to hear what I’ve been working on the past couple of months. I’ve had a lot of artists come in and help out with the project, so there will be multiple shout-outs for this project. Can’t wait to hear the feed back tomorrow!
I’m getting extremely excited & eager to start these new music projects I have lined up for this summer. I just finished up putting together a pretty sick studio in my home (pictures to come later this week) Teaming up with a sick new artist Will Inspire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ktvs7DBCOG0), mixing/mastering some of his tracks on his up coming tape due out around the end of May.
In marathon* news, I just picked up a drummer, Isiah Jacobs, & we’re going to start recording the new album next week (One of my best friends Tyler Salley is also trying to contribute & lay down some saxophone tracks but we’ll see if his car can make the trip from Chicago to Rockford for a couple of sessions) Couldn’t be more proud and confident in the marathon* project right now. I’m getting a lot of great feedback from a lot of different people in a lot of different cities which is awesome news to hear! I have an exciting new sound for this album that ears are going to really really get into. Don’t worry, nothing crazy, still keeping the contemporary folk roots, but you have to elevate/progress your sound as you move along with a project. This album has me way too happy about the future.
As for now, if you haven’t already, download the album “casabianca” right here for free at http://musicmarathon.bandcamp.com/ & let me know how you feel!
