Everything Means Nothing To Me (Elliott Smith cover)

I teamed up with The Secret Sea to record a cover of this beautiful Elliott Smith song, using Polyverse's incredible software!
In this arrangement, we run The Secret Sea's vocals through Manipulator (I control the pitch of his voice with my keyboard) and the guitar through Gatekeeper (to create that awesome gated sound).
If you're at NAMM 2018, catch us performing at the Polyverse Music booth (9906 B) every day!

New Custom-Built Controller, NAMM 2018

I'm so excited to introduce my new custom MIDI controller, built by controllerism expert Moldover!
Check out the short demo video. Expect to see this device in A LOT of my upcoming work! If you have any name suggestions for the controller, drop a comment.

I'll be performing with this new instrument for the first time at the Polyverse Music booth at NAMM 2018. Come say hi if you're there! The Secret Sea and I are preparing a cool set using the company's incredible software.

Special thanks to Moldover for the incredible work, and to Synthtopia and Musicradar for featuring the vid!

Live Challenge submissions closed!

Submissions are now closed for the GLASYS Live Challenge! I received A LOT of amazing last minute videos that I'll be sharing on social media in the next couple of days.

Picking winners feels impossible right now, which is why I'm giving myself 2 weeks to listen to the 50+ submissions over and over and hopefully figure out which ones I like best! I'll announce the winners by the end of the year, maybe before.

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who participated in my little experiment, and thank you to everyone who has watched, supported and shared!
Happy holidays!

In the Studio with T-Pain

I had a blast working with T-Pain in the studio over the last few days! He's a seriously talented musician and a great guy, I'm stoked to have had the opportunity to collaborate with him. 
Can't wait to share some of the sounds we recorded... but in the meantime, check out the Instagram videos he posted from our sessions, and this cool article on Hot New Hip Hop!

GLASYS / T-Pain Video Goes Viral

This post is overdue, but these last few days have been so crazy and overwhelming (in the best way possible) that I didn't even get the chance to update my website!

For those who don't know, a few days ago I posted a new video where I jam to a T-Pain song on Reddit. The video reached the front page, went viral with over half a million views on YouTube, and received a crazy amount of press including a feature on the GRAMMY's website!

I'm utterly blown away by the response and would love to thank everyone who has shared/supported/purchased my music in the last few days from the bottom of my heart! 

New Video - Finger Twisters

Here's a new video consisting of 10 short musical ideas, some of which explore simultaneous keyboard playing and finger drumming. The ideas were performed live using my DSI Prophet 6, Nord Stage 2 EX, Therevox ET-4AKAI MPK mini II, some pedals and a Melodica.

I posted this to Facebook a couple of days ago and it already has over 50,000 views and 500 shares (including a share by Dave Smith Instruments) - I'm overwhelmed by the response, thank you so much to everyone for the amazing support!

I received my 64 Audio A6 In-Ear-Monitors a week ago, and have already played two shows with them. They sound amazing! It's so refreshing to hear yourself well on stage.
Really proud to be endorsed by these guys. If you're considering getting a pair of IEMs, you should definitely check out their products!

MOGO Music Festival Tonight!

I am thrilled to be part of MOGO Music Festival's lineup tonight! I'll be playing at The Secret Society with two killer local acts: Korgy & Bass and Coco Columbia. Get your tickets here!

We've even prepared a special GLASYS - Korgy & Bass collaboration for the night, with The Secret Sea on guitar. Check out this short teaser video, it's going to be so much fun:

Furthermore, our show got some cool recommendations in the local press! Tour Worthy wrote that "With Glasys’ gorgeous keyboard compositions and Korgy & Bass’ fuzzy hip-hop, this could be the show of the year" (link) and the Portland Mercury recommended the show in their "Things to Do" segment:
