Mike Peralta - I Heard - Official Music Video

Peeps!

The time has come! I've finally released another music video! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!

The past few months I've been working with my old buddy Alex Hamric of HamricStudios.com on a video for my original acoustic song "I Heard", and it came out great!

We had talked for a long time about doing a video together, but it never seemed to materialize until a few months ago when we had an email conversation about our dSLR cameras, which quickly turned into a phone call, and then we both sort of snapped and decided to cut all the bullshit and planning, and just do a video together. We literally brainstormed for a matter of minutes before setting a date to meet up and film, and on the day of filming we completely winged it, without any sort of plan in mind, and had a blast for about four hours in the beautiful city of Orange.

Happy New Year!

HOLY shartballs, is it seriously 2013 already?!? Sometimes I still feel like I need to write 1996 on my checks. Oh wait I haven't written a check since 1996.. maybe that's why.

Anyway, I hope you guys all had a great Christmas, Hanukkah, Holidays, whatever, and your New Year's Eve was spectacular and memorable. If any of you received an iTunes card, I fully expect you to buy my album 4 times over, of course.

Anyway... I like saying anyway, don't I?

Anyway, I haven't done this in a couple years, so I thought it would be fun to read off some of the search terms people have used to find my website. If you didn't read the last time I blogged about this, basically I have stats that show me lots of details and stuff about the visitors to this website, and one of the things I can see is what people were searching for when they first arrived here. Most often its just something obvious, like my name or one of my song titles, but every once in awhile someone will search for something totally ridiculous, and end up right here! [...]

Categories: Journal

Mike Peralta - Will I Be Okay (Cover Photo)

Hello you dudes! Its been about a month since I released my latest single, and I just wanted to make sure you've all listened to it!

Anytime you ever want to hear my music, and don't know where to go, you can always visit http://www.MikePeralta.com/listen. That's the easy way.

If you'd like to go directly to a specific digital vendor to listen, here are some other links for you:
  • iTunes if you're an apple fan-person
  • Bandcamp, if you'd like to name-your-own-price, or you're on mobile.
  • and lastly My Own Official Store if you'd like to bypass the other vendors and get more of your hard earned cash directly to me (Yaaaaaaay)

How to Get Free Stuff

Categories: Journal

How to Get Free Stuff


Mother and Daughter

Aloha dudes! This is Mike Peralta, and I'd like to clue you in on how other fans are totally getting tons of free stuff, and how you can too. How would you like to get free signed CDs, T-Shirts, Mp3s, and more? I've given tons away to fans already, and I'm always giving away more. Earning stuff is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is be a friggin awesome fan. That means in a nutshell, be very active and vocal in your support, over an extended period of time. Eventually I'm going to notice and want to reward you, or I'll just send you something out of sheer guilt.
Representing Chino

I'm going to list some fast and easy ideas on things you can do to earn your gear, but you can show your support in many other ways, so feel free to try out your own ideas too!
Damn You, Shea

Things You Can Do


  • Contact your local college radio station and let them know you'd like to hear my music, or have them interview me.
  • Contact music bloggers and ask them to interview or blog about me! Your favorite ones, or any in general will do.
  • Share my music and website with all your friends on facebook, twitter, and anywhere else you can think of.
  • Post about my work in message boards, in blog comments, on youtube, and anywhere you can find other music lovers.
  • Befriend other fans. The stronger we can build our community, the more fun it will be for all of us, and the further we can go. You can usually find other fans on:
    • The forums in this site
    • The "Find Other Fans" or list of registered users on this site
    • My twitter account
    • My facebook fan page
    • My youtube videos
  • Take photos next to my website, or my CD, or anything that shows you're a fan.
  • Write your own blog about how my work has touched you in some way.
  • Make youtube videos, or use any other video-share service to let your friends know about me, my work, or how it has touched your life. One fan even made his own Mike Peralta T-Shirt and vlogged about it, so I sent him one of my own T-Shirts and some stickers within a couple days!

'Chelle!

But Please Be Patient!


Some fans come and go rather quickly, and others show up to praise their undying love for me, then disappear 2 days later. Until I win the lottery, I can't give away free stuff to everyone, so I have to make sure you're a fan for the long haul. Please don't send out a few messages of praise for a few days and then be disappointed when you don't get free stuff. Instead, be a really supportive fan for a long long period of time. Make friends with other fans and give me some time to realize that you've been around awhile, and you'll be around a lot longer. Also, it does not hurt to be vocal about the help you're putting in. If you're going out of your way to support the cause, there is nothing wrong with making sure I see it!
Well thank you!

Thanks and Good Luck!


Thanks for taking the time to read this everyone! I appreciate all your support and I love every last one of you. I hope very soon you all win freeeeee stufffffffff! [...]

Silly Random Word Sentences on Twitter

Categories: Journal | Mouth Diarrhea

uhhhh... well whats up you guys... most of you probably don't even know what this is about, but some of you are on twitter with me right now tweeting up a storm.

Essentially I came home from school about a half hour ago and asked my friends on twitter to DM me (direct message) a random word, and I'll make a silly sentence based off of it. You'd think I would get just a few words and probably struggle to fill in the gaps, right? You would be wrong... apparently it is happy hour on twitter right now, because I literally got over 50 direct messages and way too many words to actually put together. All the freaking DM conversations I was having are now pushed down and purged by twitter, in favor of a vast array of one-word direct messages. [...]

Mike Peralta - Will I Be Okay (Cover Photo)
Hello you dudes! Guess what? I've just released my latest single!!! Its a track I've been playing at live shows for quite awhile now, but for one reason or another, never got around to recording it. Well I finally sat down and tried doing it some justice, and I think it came out alright.

SO, you can now listen to it, FOR FREE, on my discography page or Bandcamp, as well as purchase/preview on iTunes, Amazon Mp3, Zune, Rhapsody, and all those other places. Just check my discography page if you need a link. [...]

2011 Christmas Giveaway - for fans only!!!

Categories: Journal | News

Alohaaa Dudes!


I'm writing to you this morning to let you know whats going on right now - We're giving away free stuff for the holidays!

For the last few months, I and 'Chelle (the wonderful wonderful person who runs my main fan account on twitter @PeraltaNation have been toying with an idea of a fans-only contest, and we finally decided to do it! This isn't the typical contest you usually see, where random people kiss up to win free stuff just because its free stuff. This is more like, a way to reward our real fans - those who have already been showing support, those who continue to show support, and those who are just now jumping on the bandwagon.

What You Can Win


What will you win, you ask? Michelle and I have discussed it, and we'll be giving away something of almost everything I have to offer, including: Individual Mp3s, giant mailbox killing globs of Mp3s, some of my hand made t-shirts, autographed copies of my debut acoustic album, autographed copies of my single releases, buttons, stickers, autographed demo CDs, shout outs in my next youtube vlog, and anything else we can think of!

Who Wins


Who wins, and how do you win?
The simple answer is: The most awesome fans will win.
The long answer is this: Show us what makes you an awesome fan. Show us how you've contributed. Tell us how you've been enjoying my work, and what it means to you. How can you do that? There are a ton of ways! :
  • Show us blogs, forums, facebook walls, and other places where you've shared my music and videos with other fans
  • Send in silly, artistic, or outrageous fan pics like people have already posted in this gallery
  • Tweet about "Mike Peralta", #MikePeralta, @MikePeralta and/or @PeraltaNation. Favorite and retweet our tweets, and make sure we see what you're doing!
  • Share my youtube videos with all your friends, favorite videos, post comments on my channel/videos, and tell other users on youtube about me
  • Record your own youtube vlog and tell people how my music has touched you, or record a cover version of one of my songs!
  • Come hang out in my Chat Room even if I'm not around, and invite other friends and fans to join you
  • Purchase my music on BandCamp, iTunes, Amazon Mp3, or any of the other places it is available, and write your own customer review/recommendation for others to see

Mike Peralta Interviewed on KUCI 88.9FM with Dan Surround
Hello friends! This is just a quick little update to let you all know about a recent interview I got to do live on the radio, in case you haven't already seen the million tweets I made about it.

Basically there is this kick ass station in my area called KUCI, run by (I believe) the University of California, Irvine. They broadcast over the air - 88.9FM, and have a live mp3 stream anyone can hear over the internet. They host a wide variety of programs and they are mainly driven by the desire to enrich and enlighten your musical culture, so they mostly play unknown or small acts, and they actually have some kind of rule that if someone is getting national radio play, they can't be played on KUCI. How cool is that? [...]

A Story Forever

Categories: Journal | News

My Friends!

Well it's that time again - I'm releasing another single!

Everybody say it with me - YAYYYYyyy!

Phew okay, now that I got that out of my system, let's continue. My new single is a dreamy acoustic song called "A Story Forever" with very light drums, orchestral strings, subtle synth backup vocals, and my trusty acoustic guitar. The song is one very close to my heart. You see, a long long time ago, I came up with the general idea for what the lyrics would represent, and kept it bouncing around in my head for years. It's been in my heart for quite some time. Eventually I finished the first solid draft of what the song would become today, and started performing it live at gigs and to close friends at backyard parties, slowly learning how to perform it properly, in the way I had originally heard it in my head.
