My new single is coming out in only a week! If you've pre-ordered on my BandCamp page, you should be receiving a copy of the song in your email box soon. Someone please remind me quickly if this doesn't happen today!
As for the rest of you... check this website next week - June 14th, 2014 - for a brand new song for allllll! It'll be free for everyone to enjoy, but if you have self control issues, feel free to jump on the pre-order right this second and you'll get the single almost a week before everybody else! [...]
Helloooooo peeps! Guess what? I'm releasing another single!
Woo woot woot woot
In about 2 weeks (June 14th, 2014 to be more precise) I'll be releasing my song "I Want You With Me" for your listening pleasure. It's got a bit more of a harder feeling to it, like my last track, but a bit more dreamier. I couldn't resist throwing on more of that sweet sweet robotic backup vocal stuff too.
The plan is this: In 2 weeks, the song will be published, and everyone can enjoy it for free. [...]
Basically I got to come down, hang out for a bit before the show, and then enjoyed a full hour of talking on the air and playing a few songs for them. It was sweeeeeet, and so much fun! I'm pretty sure I made an audio recording of my own performances somewhere (I'll have to get back to you on that), but in the meantime, here's a copy of the entire episode, that they've posted to youtube: [...]
Hello you dudes! I know its been awhile since I've sent out a newsletter. If you don't remember me, we probably met briefly while I was holding an acoustic guitar somewhere, or perhaps you sent me some sort of instant message online and I replied by trashing your inbox with free Mp3s.
I recorded a new cover song a little bit ago. Its not much but I thought it'd be fun to do. Its the song "Just Dropped In" by Kenny Rogers, from the movie "The Big Lebowski". It's from the scene where Lebowski gets knocked out and has a hallucination/dream where he dances and struts up to grab a pair of bowling shoes from Saddam Hussein, then becomes a human bowling ball that looks up girls skirts haha. You know the one I'm talking about. [...]
As I wrote in my last blog, I've decided it's more important to me than anything else, that everyone has the chance to own a copy of my music - and not just one or a few freebie tracks - I mean all of it.
Too many times, I've had fans message me about only owning 1 or 2 songs because they couldn't afford more and didn't want to pirate my music. To me, that's a tragedy. That's enjoyment and good times lost because of money. Also I'm sure I've lost way too many potential fans when someone didn't listen at all because they couldn't afford to buy. [...]
Happy Mother's Day to all the mama's out there, trying to do the best for their kids, and those soaking up all the glory for the years they've already put in.
If you're not a mom, give a mom a hug today!
And yeah... I guess you could say I didn't plan out the release date of my new single very well. As usual I was just really really excited about it and went "Well how about a week and a half from now derpppppp".
Wait no, maybe I did that on purpose just so you'd think it was funny and buy all my music lol. [...]
The song is called "I'm Such a Drag (Just Sometimes)". I know I know. Laugh it up, but that's the title I went for lol.
So yeah - at this very moment, you can already pre-order it on my little page at BandCamp. I'm setting the price at $1 as usual. Pay more if you can. Listen for free after the release date here or on Spotify and ish.
Also I think I keep forgetting to mention this, but if you really don't have the cash, you can still earn a free copy of this and any other Mp3. All you have to do is pretty much be awesomely supportive, then ask. I give stuff away all the time. Well maybe I'll wait a month or so after this one releases, but you know what I'm saying. [...]
I have a quick request... if you are in the OC/Costa-Mesa area, by the South Coast Plaza mall, I need your help!
My Sony Store exhibit finally went live, and now I need votes!
If you're in the area or can drop by, I need you to:
1 - Walk into the Sony Store
2 - Find the "The Contested" display, which has a bunch of those cool headphones lined up, and its basically underneath a TV that occasionally shows my photo
3 - Snap a quick photo of yourself wearing those headphones and tweet it out using the hashtags #Sony714 and #MikePeralta [...]
My #SonyStore exhibit is almost ready to be featured here in costa mesa! I re-imagined two songs for this project, and guess which one was your "fans' choice"?
Well I think early on it was kind of obvious. I got like 10 emails about it almost immediately, and nearly everything else was the same. So yeah, two new remixes of my music, and I'll be featured in my local #Sony714 song very soon.
