DISCLAIMER: I am a comedy artist so this is a comedy album.
So here it is, The Black Skarade! An cover of your favorite pop-emo album of 2006 in ska, dix, waltz, and blues fashions!
A huge thanks to Ananth Batni at Pretty Good, for recording and producing the album as well as bearing with me on my scheduling conflicts (also for playing with me on the album & live) and simply for being the man.
A huge shoutout to everyone who has been a part of my live sets including Declan Enright, Walter Commins, Ananth Batni, Abram Shaw, Luis Orta, Jan Knutson, David Gardner, Ben Shaw, Aaron McGlown, Charles Scheider, Nat Jones, and Patrick Cable
Much thanks to everyone who came in the studio and recorded on the album! I'll get to your names in the credits. :)
Thank you very much to Darelynn, Bret, Sam and Elta Goldstein for supporting me through my life.
