More creative goodness from my friends at Portland Studios. Cory Godbey, whose delightful illustrations populate The Ballad of Matthew’s Begats, worked long and hard on this video for Zune Arts. You can find out more about the concept behind the video at Cory’s blog. What do you think? (Sorry about the weird spacing, by the [...]
I was reading through the responses to the Sigur Ros video and decided to grab a line or two from each one. It’s remarkable to me how varied the reactions were to this piece, and it’s taught me something about the way we all approach art differently.
I’ve so often been exasperated by the lack of [...]
We have a surplus of T-Shirts left over from the Christmas tour this year, and they’re on sale. They’re American Apparel shirts (which are the most comfortable, high-quality kind on the market, says me), and we’re selling them for $10 plus shipping, which is barely more than what we paid to have them made.

They each feature Ron’s band, arguably the best bluegrass/country band in the world, Alison Krauss and Union Station, not to mention Ron’s virtuosic musicianship.

Allow me to explain.
With much fear and trembling, I’m posting a recording of my fourth ever speaking engagement. Some folks at the Belmont University Songwriter’s Association were kind enough to invite me to speak for a convocation last month and several of the students asked me for a copy of the recording.
Here’s another cool video, courtesy of my friends at Portland Studios. Justin Gerard illustrated the cover to my 2005 record The Far Country, as well as the illustrations for my upcoming book On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. Portland Studios published a beautiful picture book called Beowulf: Grendel the Ghastly, [...]
A video by Stephen Delopolous , whose new record just released. The animation is by my friends at Portland Studios. What do you think?
I doubt this’ll do much good this late in the game, but on the off chance that any of you live in Nashville, I’ll be speaking at Belmont University tomorrow morning for a convocation. It’s for the Belmont Songwriter’s Association, and I’m speaking on songwriting and the art of discipline.
I should probably be speaking [...]
