Shades on SoundCloud

I finally got to uploading a couple of Shades of Jackson tracks to SoundCloud. I’ll be posting demo’s, B-Sides, etc. as well as some new idea’s in the future. Thanks for checking it out and feel free to comment!



Oblivion Soundtrack




So the movie has gotten mixed reviews which I can understand (though I liked it). And yes I might be biased but I love this score. Two of my good buddies worked their asses off on it and it payed off. Joe Trapanese was a co-composer with Anthony Gonzalez and Satoshi Noguchi mixed it. If you haven’t heard it you can check it out on Spotify. It’s intense when it needs to be intense and delicate when it needs to be delicate. It’s well balanced and incredibly emotional. There are a lot of great scores that don’t really play well outside of the movie. This is not one of those scores. I listen to it all the time.

Download the score HERE from iTunes or stream it from Spotify.

The Days After (Sampler)

Click on the Album Cover to Download Sampler

Happy Tuesday everyone! So today we’re releasing a 4 song sampler on NoiseTrade for free!! Go to the site by clicking the album cover above and download away.

The full length album “The Days After” will officially be released on Tuesday May 7th and guess what… We’re playing a show that night. We’re calling it the unofficial release party because the “official” release party will be in the near future when the vinyl is all pressed up and ready for action. We’re going to have a full stage and some special guests so you don’t want to miss it. Room 5 fills up really fast and we’re already pre-selling tickets so we recommend that you get your tickets asap from the link below.

Really looking forward to seeing everyone there. Also… If you find yourself digging the sampler, please feel free to help us spread the word. We didn’t hire a PR company or a label to push this release. My definition of success for this album is if you guys are listening to it in your cars, telling your friends about it, tweeting/facebooking it, streaming it on Spotify, etc. Any success this band has will be because of you guys. See you May 7th.

Buy Tickets to the show at 9pm on May 7th @ Room 5 HERE
