The NEW VIDEO for ROCK AND ROLL STAR has arrived!
To the musicians, to the dancers, to the photographers, to the people who dare to realize something that everyone else tells them is silly, unimportant, or impossible, I tell you that all is possible and don’t let anyone ever stop you from doing what you love to do. Thank you for joining me and this fantastic group of artists for a brief journey to the luminous core of our collective, imagination.
Over the past year, I’ve had the honor and pleasure of working with many talented people who have contributed the essence of what they are to these projects, and it has taken many long hours of hard work to make these albums, videos, and projects real. People often have the misconception that the final result they experience is the only time that actually happened. In reality, this is not the case. It takes a village! My gratitude to the talented beings who brought this story to life with me: Heyrick Chassé, David Baron (Production, Synthesizers), Brian Viglione (Drums), Molly Densmore, Poetess Sabrina Miller, Anne Cavallaro, Doug Yoel, Rachel Marco-Havens, Lindsey Webster, Jax Denise, Emily Prism, and all of you who SUPPORT THE MUSIC so the crazy ride can continue!

There is no room to waste time in this life, so I thank you for taking the time to read this. Two new albums will soon be in your hands. One album is song-based, and the other is entirely instrumental. Twelve new videos are in progress for you, and the full videos for ‘Rock And Roll Star’ and ‘Killing Machine’ will be coming to you in the first week of 2015! I will be announcing the release dates for the upcoming albums shortly, and I want to thank everyone supporting the artwork that is helping me create these new realities! I am putting up new paintings on Etsy each day, and know that if you choose to purchase one, you are literally responsible for more music existing in this world! The new teaser for “Killing Machine” is right here. Thank you for being with me on this journey.

These past few months have been filled with wild, creative and new experiences. From within a flurry of paint and endless details, I am so happy to let you know that the audio for two, new albums now exists. It has taken us a year to get to this point. One album is song-based, and the other is entirely instrumental. I want to thank David Baron, who has been a tirelessly supportive friend and force behind this work. If not for him, I can honestly say my life would be a very different one. I am in the process of constructing visual worlds to surround each individual composition. The musicians who came to lend their talents in the studio forever inspire me. Please discover them if you do not know them already.

Heyrick Chassé and I are at the tail end of two, new film projects. The new video for “Rock And Roll Star” will be released as soon as the video for “I Am” reaches 5,000 hits! So! Please feel free to share the new music far and wide. Your voice makes the difference for artists like me, and it is just that simple. Last but not least, I extend my undying gratitude to all the people supporting the music and artwork, allowing me to continue this creative ride called life.
You can see the new video for “I Am” HERE and the new teaser for “Rock And Roll Star” is HERE.
On we go!

While filming the next three videos simultaneously with a group of very talented human beings, I managed to snap a shot of my friend and partner in visual crime, Heyrick Chassé. We were trying to keep several cameras running, and everything was soaked with rain from the night before. Friendship is born through shared experience.

Two new Fimm albums are now in existence, and I am working hard on getting them out to you. One album is words and music, and the other is entirely music. I am also creating a series of paintings, so I can complete these two albums, and manifest some new, insane projects. I thank deeply all the souls who are supporting the music and the artwork. It’s one hell of a ride. The new video for “I AM” is right here, and each time you share it, we get a little closer to the next release!

I have the new album in my hands, and it is an indescribable feeling. There is so much to tell, and I am looking forward to this journey with you. The new video for “I AM” is right here and the upcoming video for “Rock And Roll Star” is right around the corner! If you are interested in visual stimulation, you can visit the Sparkle Gallery, or explore my Fimm Youtubaverse. Signed albums, T-Shirts, and handmade things are right here on the Fimm Store! If you’d like to win a sampler for the new album, or tell me your thoughts on the new music, tune into my Google+ page or Facebook. ROCK.

We’ve been filming up a storm. It’s been a pleasure to work with these talented people. This is a little behind-the scenes peek at a brand new video for you. It was a truly mind-bending experience, and I’m beyond excited to share it with you. The next song and video is just around the corner now. Here is a little fimmpeek.
I put the final audio master of the new album into an envelope today and sent it off to the human beings who make it into something you can touch and hold in your hands. That was quite a feeling, and I thought of every single musician that has contributed their essence to it while I was waiting at the counter to make change.

I have the audio master for the new album in my hands now, so now it’s getting very real. It leaves me a little stunned when I listen to the result of all of this hard work with all of these talented people. I want to thank all of you who are sharing the music, and supporting the work through CDbaby, my website, and other platforms that help artists survive and go forward.
There is so much to tell, and I just have to figure out how to organize it all in my brain! I try to write letters on lines, but I just hear the orchestra again….and again…and again….
Long Live M U S I C.

The new video for the first song from the new album is out! You can watch it here. It’s been a wild time. There is much ahead, and I am so excited to share it with you. In the realm of imagination, anything is possible. Love and thanks to the musicians, dancers and dreamers that made this what it is. I am most grateful.
