What’s New!?

Oy, I feel really embarrassed about how much I’ve been slacking on the site! I didn’t realize I had put it off for so long and that was really irresponsible of me (Booo). But just so you know, ABNFAH is still going strong, and writing new material. Currently we’re working on recording a single for “Que? So?” and I’m writing/recording a new EP titled “The Long Monday” and it’s being recorded in the style of my solo material.

We just played an awesome show last Thursday, and I’ll be performing a short set at the “NYC or Bust” fundraiser on June 28th, at Imagination Celebration, hosted by Chandler Faith from Sonic Soma! After that ABNFAH returns to the Black Sheep on July 3rd with James and the Rebels, Foxen, Thoz I Guyz, and Out To Dry! Tickets are only $5 and will get you a free download of “I Am The Yeti”, so get yours today!

As for the site, I’ll be trying harder to get into a regular routine of updating, BUT just in case that fails I’m going to attach a twitter feed to the site, so you can still get updates on what we’re doing even if I’m not too active here, and as always you can keep up with us on Facebook, Tumblr, and Reverbnation. We’ll also be selling merch on our Bandcamp soon…

So last Friday I performed at the MAMA Acoustic Idol Finale and competed against 7 other contestants in front of a panel of judges.

The winners were:

1st – Dusty Hughes

2nd – The Rogue Spirits

3rd – Roma Ransom

This morning though I found out I was actually the crowd favorite, so that was pretty cool to hear. There was a lot of love and support during the show and I had good time. Now I can’t wait for Friday’s Halloween Show with my band!

In the meantime, you can check out my performance from the show!
