BF Goodrich created a rather insane campaign involving a new website, blog, and car footage from all over the country. If you scan through the videos on their YouTube page you may hear familiar tunes if you ever listened to Engine Down or Denali. Here is one of the videos that uses a little diddy I wrote, and features the wonderful Jonathan Fuller on drums.

You may have been sitting around the water cooler when your buddy told you to look up a video called “Dick in a Box” a while back. This was one of the many fabulous creations from the SNL comedy group Lonely Island involving Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, and Andy Samberg. Best known for their best known for their musical parodies on Saturday Night Live the group also has a full length album called Incredibad. Kheydesign called upon to create some fine apparel for the following skits/songs “We like Sportz”, “I’m on a Boat”, and “Ras Trent”.

Macbeth is one of those companies that understands the connection between fashion and music. Rather than designing “rockstar” endorsed clothing simply for profit, they design shoes and clothing that they would want to wear themselves as musicians, artists, and skaters/surfers/bikers. Through the years Macbeth has been very supportive of bands that I have been apart of. I specifically remember wearing a single Macbeth shirt for an entire month after our (Engine Down) van, along with my suitcase full of clothes, was stolen at the beginnning of a tour. So they hold a place dear to my heart.While talking with a Macbeth representative backstage during a Sparta tour, we got past talking about music and started gearing towards future plans. I mentioned I was going to focus on design and less on touring and blaam, the spark ignited. Over a few months we talked about their ideas for a Spring 2009 clothing line. The idea style was based on an apocalyptic age. I was inspired and churned out ideas. Below are the designs that spawned from those ideas. For more on Macbeth and to buy the amazing clothing line go to Macbeth.com. Did I mention they have a vegan shoe?!
For those of you who do not know, Black Iris Studios is a wonderland of creativity. Just about everyone, no actually….everyone, that works there is or has been in a Richmond band that shaped the scene. They all work together to bring you the best tunes to your favorite commercials. Everytime you see a commercial that they have put their music to, you sit and wonder “Who the hell is this great band and how the hell does it fit so perfectly to this ad?” You can learn more about them at http://www.blackiris.tv/
So just to show their commitment to creativity and xmas spirit I wanted to display the xmas gifts that KHEYDESIGN had a part in.
I have been fortunate enough to work with the fine people at consequenceofsound.net. At the moment logo development has been completed by Kheydesign and I just wanted to give you a heads up on the great things to come with this music devoted site. Here is what they are all about.

New site to come soon!!
Last week we had a private viewing of the just released DVD “From Beginning to Last”. It chronicles the life span and farewell tour of the band Engine Down. The turn out was amazing and the reactions ranged from laughing to crying. It’s an intense story and it seemed to affect those watching as much as it affected the band. I highly reccommend you see it whether you are a music fan or not. Thanks so much to all those involved.
