Friends and fans of Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice are likely aware that film is just as important to me as music. Recently, after weeks of behind the scenes work from the homie Conwaythewhale, I was lucky enough to be interviewed by Justin and Edward of the Back to the Feature podcast, where the duo generally reviews film, talks topics and interviews Texas-based movers and shakers. Over the course of about an hour and a half, we talk about my short films, some of the upcoming projects I have taken part in, my collaborative efforts with Jeffrey Garcia, my recent top films of 2020 list from the DOOMonFILM blog and much more, and in all honesty, it felt like we could’ve kept going on and on. If you’re a fan of film and have some time to spare, I highly recommend giving this one a spin on Spotify, or wherever you stream your podcasts!

After a successful crowdfunding venture and many weeks in production, Jeffrey Garcia is almost ready to release his latest creation, and Radio Candy looks like a doozey for real. With Justin Conway (of Conwaythewhale), Nix Nova, and a host of Garcia regulars in tow, and what looks to be a reinvigorated and bolder approach to his already irreverently brilliant visions, Radio Candy looks to be a definitive point in both 2018’s creative output and Garcia‘s long term career.

Evolution is a natural part of dedicated creation. Take Conwaythewhale, for example. Upon their inception, the band was just a duo, albeit a powerful one. Due to life circumstances and other creative obligations, what started as a raw musical confessional turned into a full-fledged power packed sonic testimonial, backed by a traditional full band. What has not changed, however, is the cutting honesty and pure emotion of singer/songwriter Justin Conway. The band stopped by KTSW 89.9‘s acclaimed Studio C Sessions recently, and their performance of John Locke was extremely touching, especially for those of us that have spent any time over the last 5 years or so in the San Marcos area. Check it out, share it around, and be sure to give it a like and/or leave a comment. Support college radio and local artists!

New Year’s Eve 2017 was one for the books. I found myself with 3 shows that evening, all in the square of San Marcos Texas. My first stop was Valentino’s Pizza, courtesy of the homeboy and crew ConwayTheWhale, for a early evening showcase. While there, I was lucky enough to meet Chaznik Raab of the Trial By Error Variety Show podcast. We jumped out in his ‘mobile studio’ for a few minutes to talk shop, and it recently hit the airwaves. Definitely take the time to listen, as many cool bands were interviewed that day. Here’s to everyone achieving their 2018 dreams!
Conwaythewhale is a damn good band, and everybody in the know already knows this. For those that don’t know, here’s a handful of proof, just for you. Enjoy!
