New Album Now Available!
"Songs of Dignity & Grit"
1. What's your connection to the album?
I work at Rubicon Studio and assisted in recording the album. I also recorded the pre-release acoustic demo.
2. How do you know Julie?
Julie and I go all the way back to playing trumpet together at Lincoln Middle School in Abilene, Texas. We were in marching and concert band through out high school as well and she also played trumpet in a little ska band I put together called Pull For Soap. I'd also like to go on record by saying I did not come up with the name.
3. What other bands/projects are you working on?
We are working on a multitude of different albums at Rubicon right now.
4. What's your favorite track of the album?
I like them all, honestly. It's difficult to pick just one; but if I had too...Dignity & Grit
5. What is your musical background? How did you get into music?
I grew up around music and started playing trumpet in fifth grade. I bought my first guitar in high school and put brass instruments aside after that. I graduated from MediaTech Institute in Austin with a certificate in the Recording Arts Program.
6. What was the first record you ever bought with your own money?
I have no idea. I'm sure it wasn't anything good though.
7. What are music are you listening to RIGHT NOW?
Oh, you know, just a little album by Julie Nolen called Songs of Dignity & Grit. Seriously, it hasn't come out of the CD player in my car.
8. Tell me something people would be surprised to know about you...
I use to be a mortician in the Army and have a degree in funeral science.
9. If your life had a sound track, name a few songs or artists that would be on it.
Oh man, it'd be some horrible 90's grunge compilation; you wouldn't like it.
10. What does "dignity & grit" mean to you?
It means keep your head down and get the work done; no matter what. And when you're finished, you can raise your head high and be proud of what you have accomplished.
