IT’S HERE! Go download our debut full length album at www.wearebray.bandcamp.com or on iTunes now! Or purchase the physical CD on bandcamp! (If you buy it on bandcamp, donations are always very very welcome!!) Thank you for your support and we are so excited to share this with you

Please support my band. We poured ourselves into this music. And we’re selling the digital download for only a dollar. If you can spare more, I can promise you it will go to good use, but if not, we just want you to be able to hear the 11 songs that mean so much to us.

I’d like to personally thank wearebray for the way they handled the last show (And my first show of them!) and how I photographed it as part of a College Club. After all photos were released, each member had the common courtesy and professionalism to message me and ask before usage for each and every photo and for each social network they wanted to use the photos for, and for re-editing purposes which were fantastically edited by hopeless hoping​.  

The reason I had to put out this rant is because lately I’ve encountered some bands that  are, let’s politely say naive to the professional aspect of the music/creative arts industry. 

Here are my thoughts on my recent encounters.

  1. This industry is competitive, but it’s also a community. Artists of all types struggle and especially DIY starters-Network, share, help each other out.
  2. Bands (ESPECIALLY ones who are first getting started) cannot expect to have everything handed to them immediately, even if you know all the right people- work for things and respect the work done for you.

    Which leads me to my next point.
  3. Photographers, Graphic designers, Merchandise Manufacturers, Writers, Promoters.. WORK TOO. 

    We provide you with services, products, and publicity!
    Compensation is not mandatory, especially as the relationship between artists and musicians differ- but nothing is free.
    These people provide you with a service, property and generally require commission. Accreditation, however can be the simplest form of compensation. Bands who struggle financially at the very least should know this- “getting your name out there” is important for all parties involved. 

  4. So let’s stick on accreditation. 
    DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT steal property! 
    DO NOT crop out watermarks.
    DO NOT re-upload copyrighted artwork, photography, or reviews as your own without permission of the OP. 


    Last but not least, do not message me asking for usage of my photo, my property and have the unprofessional naive audacity to say 
    (Sarcastic paraphrase)
    "Can you send me a copy of it without your watermark to use on a site that CLEARLY is used to promote artists  but i’m going to take out your name on your image so as not promote you though"


    Fun Fact: Asking for someone’s original creative piece of work alone, requires a transaction of some sort- You are buying the use of their work if you desire to not credit them to it. 

    And if you ask me that-
    No, fuck you. 
    I respectively will not name the parties involved in causing me to write this.


This is so important.

In social issues class today our professor held up a black book and was like “this book is red” and we were all “no” and he said “yes it is” and we were just all “that’s not right” and he turned it around and the back cover was red and he said “Don’t tell somebody they’re wrong until you’ve seen things from their point of view” 

that speaks to me 

I want him to know he’s becoming the next Tumblr sensation
