June 2017

All kinds of news -

the new Memoryy album "SKELETONS" finally dropped in April - the same month my new baby boy Hudson Grey came into the world!

SKELETONS had an Indie front page feature on iTunes & just won Best Pop Album at the NMMA.

The new single "Not Over You" was in the Top 5 on HypeMachine & blogged everywhere, including being the "Song of the month" on MP3hugger.

 

In Film/TV Music news, I composed music for Hoops House - a Gatorade / Whistle Sports web series following Pure Sweat Basketball training camp for NBA draft players, 4 episodes in total.

Episode 1:

Episode 2 (My fav track of the bunch is the last one here):

Also I'm really proud of a song I wrote for a forthcoming introductory video for Bolt Thread's revolutionary lab-created-spider silk clothing. Coming soon.

Last but not least, it was truly a pleasure to be a Music Coordinator at Albuquerque Film & Music Experience this year, where I got to meet both T-Bone Burnett & Jeff Bridges. (So did Baby Hudson!) It is a fabulous event run by some truly awesome people. 

Until next time... -SH

<<I've been swamped co-writing / co-producing an album for an A-list R&B star, but I'm not supposed to talk about it...... DRATS! (It's sounding AMAZING btw.)>>

Dang kids, "I Thought You Needed My Love (feat. Odd Year)" was officially the best charting original Memoryy track on HypeMachine - rocketing to (and staying at) #8 & quickly racking up 50k plays in a matter of a few days. Massive thanks to all those who supported it! 

I was busy last month scoring my 2nd horror short from director Ryan Wick - "Chatter" coming later this year. The last one was critically acclaimed & this one is even better. I was honored to provide a Stranger Things-meets-Halloween score for this creeper.

February was also the month we completed renovations & officially moved into my brand new KAF home. Finally have the space to spread out all the gear that's been hiding in storage forever. Hey look, there's the Kaoss Pad I thought I lost 5 years ago! 

Unlike my fav 90's R&B star I'm still pinching myself I'm actually producing - HEY here's something I can talk about! Remember that insane music video that premiered on NYLON? That was all my buds at Psychic Bunny. So when they asked me to score their brilliant nonsense new short, I had to comply! check this out - and just keep "The Terminator" in the back of your mind as a reference. (LOVED to get to write my version of The Terminator Love theme, as well as some epic action themes.)

Well for all my Chelsea Handler fans, there was an original demo that was NEARLY the theme song (before I wrote the real deal Evander Holyfield). I reworked the demo (with my buddy Brain Tan) into a recent Memoryy single that quickly charted on HypeMachine. And if you've been clued in since my old school days as Kitten Berry Crunch, than this is the kinda George Michael & Prince cheese you know I love!

January 2017

Can't believe 2017 is already upon us & I've been busier than ever...

In addition to just wrapping up the Memoryy full length album (dropping in March), I've been composing a few Whistle Sports videos - including this Panini Dunk Contest that's already garnered almost 500k views in only 5 days!

I also scored this 3 minute new Pfizer ad that hit over 550k views in 3 weeks. This song builds from Trap to Dance Pop to Chill Electronica & I'm in love with that last song! 

Here's a short 15-second song I wrote for the New Mexico Lottery:

Also won a huge remix contest that I'll be announcing shortly & beginning new collaborations for 2017. Hit me up if you wanna jump on the KAF train this year!

Keep your eyes & ears peeled for the 1st new Memoryy single dropping 1.30.2017-
