Art. Music. Words.

The Air Circus takes off!

Evan Howard (keys, Aquafuture), Robin Anderson (drums, 11th House) and Dave Klemencic (also keys, LarJar) have formed a new trio dubbed The Air Circus. Playing a mix of originals and covers with segments of experimental improv, the dual keyboardists trade off roles of rhythm and lead and cover the bass on the organ and synthesizers. 70s soul-funk, rock and jazz, this team’s got a lot to offer!

Check out this video clip shot by Joe Collet from their debut performance at City Dogs in Richmond on January 15!

New Album Art- The Congress EP

I’ve had the pleasure of designing the album art for The Congress’ new EP, which will be distributed at an early release party on Dec 26th at Emilio’s on Broad Street in Richmond.  The Congress, the newest musical endeavour by Scott Lane and Jonathan Meadows, has been playing in clubs and bars all around Colorado and Virginia.  Tracing their musical roots to Richmond bands of days gone by such as the Grove, Meadows and Lane relocated to Colorado just over a year ago to pursue their musical dreams in a new setting and have found great success while touring there.

The album art features multiple views of my samurai painting (seen here) and a great photograph by Matt Greer on the reverse face.  Be sure to check these guys out, they’re a great blend of American rock, soul and funk music and it’s music you can keep coming back to.  Cheers!congressalbumcover

LarJar featured in Magazine33

Check out the premier issue of Magazine33 for the Ripple Effect article on the LarJar Band.  Meredith Ripple was kind enough to sit down with the fellas for a lengthy interview regarding the band’s roots and influences, our long running weekly gig, best and worst moments and plans for the future.  The article includes the track “Ridin’ the Rails” for your listening pleasure.

Magazine33 is a great new art/culture/music magazine that’s kicking off with some great talent behind it.  Check it out online for a glance into what Richmonders are getting down with these days.  Cheers!
