Tiny Desk 2020

Electric Earth Music

I recorded this little piece about a week ago as my submission to NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest.

I got used to playing this snail didge in Europe last summer and I really like it.  Full-sized didgeridoos can be quite unwieldy in live performance, as well as travel, but this one sounds great, and feels great in my hands.  I hope you like the sound of it as well, because I’d love to play at your next event.  I’m currently booking shows for this summer, and preparing to release a new album (or two) in the near future.

Artist bio: The writer in me says: “Don’t tell them who you are, show them what you do.” The artist in me says: “It must be strong, simple, bold, yet rich with detail, but above all, original.” The filmmaker in me says: “We need to contextualize your work by weaving the roots of the Psychedelic Revolution, the Environmental Movement, Gaia Theory, Future Primitivism and musical influences from Iannis Xenakis to Bart Hopkin into a narrative that portrays an iconoclast's struggle for cultural relevance from the forested hinterlands of rural Northern California within the greater post-industrial, post-post-modern, post-reality mind-fuck of the 21st Century.” The critic in me says: “Will that guy ever shut up?” The comedian in me says: “It has to make me laugh at least once.” The engineer in me says: “Don’t forget to tell them that you do it all off-grid, with solar power, using recycled materials.” And the improvisational musician in me says: “Cut! Great job everybody!”

  1. Good sound John. Reminded me of a long train ride through beautiful scenery. I am guessing it felt good to have that vibration going through your Being.

    Loving Blessings to you and Amy,
