Grande Dame on Youtube!

I am sooo late to the gate on this one! Kinda pathetic ha! There is a reason behind my tardiness – I was never keen on youtube. When it started (yes I remember that far back!) the compression did not look favourably on animation. Esp mine! It was all so pixelated and blocky and fuzzy, I just didn’t see the point in bothering with it. To me it was just a place to watch cats playing keyboards and people falling over, not to display my art! My art that I had painstakingly worked on for ages, so that it could look like a big ol sloppy mess! I was a Vimeo disciple – it was created by video artists, for video artists & it’s compression always looked great! But over the years things have changed. Youtube’s compression has improved dramatically. Also whilst going over a recent ASCAP statement, I was taken aback to see that I receive royalties from youtube plays because they have ads! Vimeo does not have ads, so no royalties there. So I thought – what are you waiting for?

I put together some visual mash ups to more songs from the Grande Dame Album and more. I also put my critically acclaimed animated short – The Trip up – NSFW FYI! Not all are “music videos” more psychedelic visual montages. In fact some are super rough – my computer broke down while I was rushing to put bits together for Burning Man. It went into kernel panic and ate up all my RAM! I couldn’t properly edit. So I wrote down the seconds where the time changes were and dropped the clips in that way! Some are not as smooth as others – but still cool as SHIT! Anyhoo, I made a playlist above – nearly an hours worth of rockin tunes & twisted/ psychedelic animations! Some with stories, some just trippy visuals! Perfect for Halloween too! So have a play, listen and share with your friends so I can get paid! Ta oxo GD

Free Download of Chicken Man!!!


Back down south in Georgia & I’ve been getting ready for my trip to New Orleans. Leaving tomorrow!! It just dawned on me that I accidentally deleted my track Chicken Man!! If you don’t know it, it’s pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Taking major influences from Hearts Barracuda and 70’s Prog/Space Rock – this track was made with 100% love! It is about a real person too! The Chicken Man was known as The Voodoo King of New Orleans. I used to see him all the time when I lived there, he had his own Voodoo shop in the French Quarter and many followers too. Some say his ghost still haunts the quarter streets. Read about him here… To download click buy button. Might have to enter 0, plus your email… Totes free! My gift to you for the next week! Rock out to a new genre – FOWL SPACE ROCK – by Grande Dame! Enjoy! oxo gd
