Thank you so much for your presence and ongoing support! I’ve spent the past few months carefully assembling brand-new, one-of-a-kind, handmade Fimm boxes, filled with music and love! I’m calling this rare, personalized collection, “The Spirit Box.” There will be several different versions – all in extremely limited supply. This Fimm-experiment in sound and color is now available exclusively through the music page. Each carefully crafted, wooden “Spirit Box” is made right here in the USA with 100% renewable resources. I painted them by hand with a ton of love. I look forward to sharing this new collection with you. AND! For every box sold, I will be planting a tree in honor of each of you who supports this effort. May we grow together forever. Thank you for being here.
Time seems to be going so fast! Thank you so much for being here. Thank you for supporting the music, artwork, photography, events and other such shenanigans of a Fimm-like variety. It’s not easy to encapsulate the goings on of this place known as “here;” but I will just say that the creative fires are burning hot. Filming has been one of my new passions. With the help of the very talented friend, the Sparkle Poetess of Sparkle Poetics, new videos continue to come to life. Of course, you know how I love to keep things mostly invisible.
If you’d like to see roughly 60 new piano videos that are only available through Patreon, please feel free to come and explore this evolving, secret world where my soul and yours meet in the arms of music. Patreon is an online platform that was created to facilitate recurring funding for independent creators like me. It’s not just about funding either (although that’s very important). More and more, as I communicate with these dear people sharing our time on this earth, connected by this music and art, I feel compelled to tap into dreams that I never even knew were there.
If you choose to become a patron, please know that because of the way things are for independent artists at the moment, this conscious gesture transforms my existence. It is not small. Music is, after all, something more vast than we can even begin to fathom.
“Potnia Theron” and “Adaquarium” have arrived! I thank all of you from the bottom of my heART who are supporting this journey. Thank you for sharing the sounds and videos! It has taken nearly 100 musicians and 2.5 years of work to make these two albums exist!! Signed CDs, WAV files, MP3s…the whole shabang is right here.
To my producer and dear friend, David Baron, you are the best. There is nobody like you in this place. You are a bird of a feather. You make the lives of so many artists across the planet rich and full, lifting their talents and their spirits through your own. Your expertise and energy in the studio as a producer is always a thing to behold. I am so proud to know and work with one of the greatest producers on this Pale Blue Dot.
To all of the musicians who gave their time, talent and energy to make this happen, I salute you. I cherish you. Thank you for all that you do to enrich this world through the wonder that you bring. I hope the love and appreciation trickles back a thousandfold. THANK YOU David Baron, Brian Viglione, Sara Lee, Erik Lawrence, John Andrews, D. James Goodwin, Manuel Quintana, Ken Butler and the FAMES Macedonian Orchestra Project. I can’t wait to record again with all of you. Thank you Heyrick Chassé for the countless hours you have spent behind the lens filming new videos and creating artwork for these projects. Thank you Sparkle Poetess Sabrina Miller for being an extraordinary poet and Goddess.
I have a lot of thank-yous to write, but this one is for You – the one reading this. Thank you for believing so this dream could come true. Thank you for being a part of this music. It’s a rare and precious feeling to still be standing here with my arms outstretched as a direct result of what happens when love is transformed into action.
I cannot thank you enough for supporting these new albums, “Adaquarium” and “Potnia Theron,” through the “Golden Honeycomb” and “Silver Lining” sets. Thanks to your generosity and support, these unique, one-of-a-kind creations are nearly sold out! Thank you for helping me prove that it is possible for an independent artist to find a way to survive and create outside of the corporate structure.
In addition to a very limited number of remaining “Golden Honeycomb” and “Silver Lining” sets, high-definition .WAVs, signed, physical copies of “Adaquarium” and MP3s have also arrived. Please know that every time you purchase something directly from my Fimmstore, you are not only helping me fulfill my purpose as a human being, you are also helping me survive and move forward into the future with the bright possibility of creating new works. So many talented people have put their time, energy and essence into these two albums, most notably my dear friend and producer, David Baron. Please feel free to discover his music here. We have created more than 6 albums together now, and thanks to those of you who support the music, the artwork and become patrons, I feel I am standing at the edge of a great precipice with no fear what-so-ever of falling.
By sharing the videos for “I Am,” “Rock and Roll Star” and “Killing Machine,” you are helping me achieve something that is nearly impossible, and I invite you to use your voice to shout this music from any rooftop you can find. If you’d like to become a patron and support my work on a recurring basis (and be a keeper of a portion of my soul for all eternity), please take a step into my weird, radiant, secret world. If you actually read this far, then I am truly flattered, and I welcome you to have a peek at the new video for, “Novo,” the first release from “Adaquarium.”
I can’t wait to share these new albums with you and other projects that are brewing over here. I’ve been filming, writing, creating and trying not to go bat-shit whilst loving every moment of this strange, beautiful ride. I want to thank all of you who are on it with me. Two, brand-new albums are spinning out of my hands and into yours soon. Because you are supporting, sharing and shouting at the top of your lungs about the new music and the artwork, I somehow am able to stay alive and keep creating it as a fully independent artist!
The new instrumental album “Adaquarium” is now available on my store page here and “Potnia Theron” is about to land. There are very few “Golden Honeycomb” and “Silver Lining” handmade sets remaining, so if you’d like one now is the time!
The first two chapters of the “Adaquarium Diaries” will be arriving soon to all who have signed up on the contact page, so make sure your info is up to date if you want to hear about what is happening next. New paintings are making their way to Etsy and my Gallery page here and the first three paintings of 2016 are drying now right next to me! New videos with tracks from “Adaquarium” and “Potnia Theron” are now on Youtube and Vimeo!
There is so much I would like to do with this precious time. I want to make new music, a radio show, photography, paintings, tours, live projects and more! If you want to help me achieve this and truly make a difference in this artist’s life please consider becoming a patron here. You will have first access to unreleased music, poetry, photography, videos, exclusive piano videos, and much more! Thank you for being and helping this dream come true!
Two, new Fimm albums are beginning to make their way into the world in physical and digital form. The first three singles from “Potnia Theron” ~ “Killing Machine,” ‘Rock And Roll Star,’ and ‘I Am,’ are now available at my store! I’d also like you to know that my new instrumental album “Adaquarium” is available in its entirety in the form of a signed, physical album, Mp3 or Hi-Def .WAV files! Dozens of rare, one-of-a-kind synthesizers make their appearance on both new records. New video peeks for “Adaquarium” are now on Vimeo and Youtube.
There are just a few limited-edition “Golden Honeycomb” and “Silver Lining” sets remaining for those of you who have been deeply supportive of the music and do not want to wait for the full digital release of Potnia Theron in 2016! The “Golden Honeycomb” is filled to the brim with two, brand-new albums, a limited-edition Fimm T-Shirt, a thumb-drive with high-res .WAV files of additional bonus tracks and other unreleased, rare material. These handmade sets were constructed with love by my own hands. Every penny helps make it possible for me to continue on this path of music and visual art!
I am also grateful to report that the new video for “Killing Machine” was recently featured as an official selection of the Woodstock Film Festival.
If you’d like to really see what is happening behind-the-scenes with the music, paintings, piano videos, photographs and other creations, please consider becoming a patron and supporting my work in this world! Patreon is one of the few existing mediums currently available that actually helps independent artists flourish by providing an ongoing platform of fan support.
Also! I am preparing for two upcoming art shows in December, please head to my Etsy Gallery to see the latest!
Please feel free to share the new music, artwork, and videos and thank you for being on this journey with me. This is just the beginning!
The video for “Killing Machine” starring J.W. Cortes and Talia Denis has been selected for the Woodstock Film Festival!! Big thanks and hugs to all of my talented friends who who helped make it happen.
“Killing Machine” is a story of healing and resilience between a father (played by J.W. Cortes – actor, filmmaker, activist, former U.S. Marine and Law Enforcement Officer) and daughter (played by Talia Denis – musician, artist and actress) struggling to cope with PTSD.

The first of two, new albums is now available in MP3 and WAV form RIGHT HERE! I thank every single one of you who has helped make this happen by supporting and sharing the music and the artwork! Entering cloud 13…
The “Golden Honeycomb” and “Silver Lining” handmade sets are NEARLY SOLD OUT thanks to your conscious support of this music, all that it entails, and the human beings that have brought their talents to the table to make it possible. Not to mention all of you, who have stood behind me not just with your dollars but with your dreams, kind words of encouragement and support and so much more. There is no question that it is absolutely crazy to release two, new albums as an independent artist – but that is what’s going to go down. In approximately 23 days, I will be adding high quality WAV files to the Fimm Store. That’s right! We’re going high def. And it’s not just going to be “Potnia Theron” and “Adaquarium.” ALL of the albums in the Fimm Store will soon be available in WAV format HERE! I want you to hear them sound as good as they possibly can to your ears.
Of course, making these elaborate, handmade packages and pieces of music and artwork for you is not the only thing that is happening over here. Thanks to my patrons, who are sheltering portions of my soul, I’ve been able to carve time for several other projects that have been tickling my mind’s eye. I’ve been writing new poetry, filming new piano videos for my patrons, completing new paintings, mailing out “Golden Honeycombs,” and preparing interviews for you with people whom I hold dear. If you’d like to be aware of everything I’m doing down to the marrow and keep in touch directly, then please consider becoming a patron here! I will shower you with poetry, photographs, pianos, discounts on all releases, and so on. Thank you for believing in me! I can’t do this without you and this is just the beginning.
If you haven’t seen this new video experiment for “Novo” from the new album, “Adaquarium,” press down on your mouse here and prepare to feel weird in the most delightful way.
