Podcast – Song Divers

The fellas over at Song Divers were kind enough to have me over to perform a few songs and (ahem) dive deep into my personal life and songwriting. This was a wonderful experience and I’m happy to get to share it with you!

“The first thing that hooks you about Kasondra Rose is that hauntingly beautiful siren voice…although it’s virtually impossible to separate that from the ethereal poetry and mysterious pull of her songs. Then again, she’s just as likely to disarm you with a childlike ditty about an aimlessly floating cartoon cloud. A dancer turned actor turned singer—who also dabbles in aerial gymnastics and animation—Kasondra knows what she wants when she finds it, but she’s always restlessly searching for it. In the meantime, she’s made her mark as a solo performer around the eastern U.S., and earned a place in the talented artist’s collective known as The Florida Bjorkestra. Fittingly, we spent part of our last episode with Bjorkestra founder Jeremy Douglass weighing in on his creative process producing Kasondra’s song “Out of Thin Air”…and as a special treat, we get to compare Kasondra’s live version of that tune here in this episode. In conversation, we found her to be refreshingly honest, funny, and down-to-earth, and we think you’ll be as charmed as we were to get to know Kasondra Rose.”

Another Music Video!

I traveled to Switzerland last summer and brought my trusty ukulele with me, thinking it might be fun to grab some footage in the Alpine mountains… and HOLY MOLY did we get some footage! Everything about Switzerland was breathtaking… the steep mountains, the way the clouds meandered through the peaks, hearing distant Alpine horns while drinking wine on the porch of our AirBnB, the hiking, oh and the PARAGLIDERS. Man this place was stunning, and I couldn’t help myself but to sing my happy little Bob Ross of a song – “A Cloud” – on the tops of the mountains. I know it’s silly to have two music videos for the same song but… can you blame me? I hope you enjoy it 🙂

Summer Tour 2018

I booked the first show for this tour back in early January. One of my regular venues up in Michigan reached out and was ready to book for the summer, and I couldn’t say no! Three months later, in mid April, I’m finally finished booking this tour. I sent hundreds of emails, had dozens of polite declinations, dozens and dozens of no responses at all, but just enough responses to build a month long tour! The booking process is always stressful, but I *so* look forward to getting on the road to see old friends and make new ones 🙂 Please join the Facebook event and invite your friends! 😀

New Music Video – “A Cloud”

I’ve had the concept for this music video basically since I wrote the song “A Cloud.” In lieu of doing another round of Total Request songs as I’ve done for the last few years, I wanted to bring a video to everyone that highlighted my own music rather than other people’s music. So I buckled down and started hashing out what every line should look like. I’ve been working on this video for about a month and a half, one frame at a time for 2,791 frames. I’ve had the idea for this video basically since I wrote the song. I’m so happy to finally share this with you, enjoy!
