CROSSWORM – DROWNING IN RESTRICTED THOUGHT – (aka D.I.R.T.) (2016)

11393135_1598530183751266_5588052994524476744_nThis was a ground breaker for me.  Instead of a jewel case, this CD came in the sleeve in the front cover of a book.  Limited release that saw two editions printed.  The book was a hard cover release with three chapers:  The lyrics to the songs, poetry, and random essays.  Each song, poems and essay, had a piece of artwork to go with it.  All different mediums.

SUN SKY AND SURFACE – ORIENTATION (2013)

 

The singer from Dear Dangerous, Luke Danelon discovered some beats I was producing around the time of our Dear Dangerous production in Hollywood, CA… He talked me into letting him write to them, and this was born. Two years later we recorded and mixed the album at his home in Hollywood, and then in 2013 we launched out of our office in Grand Rapids, MI and toured with HURT, and Smile Empty Soul.

CROSSWORM – BLOW YOUR HEAD UP – REMIX (2011)

This remix was released on the Grindhouse mixtape series. The original version debuted on the Presidents of the Wicked Underground mixtape.

Released Nov 5th 2011

JAWS – DECIDUOUS (2011)

This was a social experiment I put out.  I noticed that the new demos I was recording had a different feel to them, and I wondered if I could gain the same kind of brand traction if I started over under a new name.  I wanted to test my fan reception at that time.

In turn, I realized that most people heard it as an entirely different entity and genre all together.  There is a different attitude on this album.  Enough to justify the additional persona to fans.  But I think looking from the outside, it’s probably the exact same thing.  The albums that would follow this, were so much more of a drastic change than this album was in comparison to Mouth Full of Dirt.

On this album my goal was rebellion.  From myself especially.  It was full steam into feeling like a lone wolf.  un-Apologetically punk.

released November 11, 2008

CROSSWORM – SAVE MY SOUL – REMASTER (2011)

This is a remaster of an original song I did for Underground Hustlin Volume 13.  I think the actual release was around 2010.  This was another single I released to keep the momentum from Mouth Full of Dirt.

Fun Fact:  There is NOTHING I like about this song.

CROSSWORM – MAKE IT RAIN – REMIX (2011)

 

This is a remix of the original song I did for Underground Hustlin Volume 8 in 2009.  In 2009 I did a bunch of singles to keep the momentum from Mouth Full of Dirt.

CROSSWORM – MOUTH FULL OF DIRT (2008)

 

Although I had previous releases, I feel that this is the album in which I found myself musically. This is where “dirtcore” officially appeared. It is highly regarded in the underground and for that I am honored. A limited amount were pressed by Guttamind of NYA Music Inc. it is out of print, and now I’m giving it away for free.

CROSSWORM – READY TO BURN (2007)

 

Ready to Burn was an experimental album written in 2006, to help increase my writing ability and to experiment with production techniques. It was never pressed or officially release. I released a previous version online in 2007 for free, to get constructive criticism from some peers. This version is the final one. It contains some extra features. Three songs from the original version went on to be included in my 2008 release; “Mouth Full of Dirt.”

CROSSWORM – PHOENIX (2004)

 

Written in 2002-2003 and was released in 2004. This was my first solo album under the name Crossworm. Previous to this I was in a Horrorcore duo called 2KORPSE, circa 1998 – 2000′.
