BIC BLOG 12/29/18

Well 2018 is almost in the books and what a wonderful year it has been. Both of our daughters are healthy and thriving in college and the album that has been inside me for years is now 3-months old! I have a lot of people I want to thank (and I pray I don’t miss anyone … and if I do, I am extremely sorry), but let me get the news/BIC-biz out of the way here first!

Got to hear a couple more very cool remixes/interpretations for ‘beauty re-envisioned’, including Kevin Kipnis’s take on ‘Drifting Away’, which has some beautiful added voices courtesy of Ms. Betsy Martin. Also, 33.3 Music Collective is still running several $ales on ‘finding beauty in chaos’ in various formats (thru 1/2/19), so if you have been dreaming about owning your very own Vinyl or CD copy … now is the time. GO HERE! Also, if you haven’t checked out the BIC MERCH STORE, please do so as new items have been added!

So here’s what really important! I would like to THANK everyone that has bought the album. I know owning physical copies of music is not necessarily the ‘way it is done now’ , but it means a lot.

This record would not have been possible without the love and support of my wife and daughters, who never complained about the long studio hours I spent. My dear friend and BIC Producer, Michael Rozon; who pushed and encouraged and spent countless hours making this record sound brilliant… This record would still be in my head if not for you! As I have said many times, this record is far, far more than my ‘solo’ album. Much thanks and love to these amazing artists that gave their time, voice, lyrics and talent to be part of BEAUTY IN CHAOS. In no particular orderTish Ciravolo, Ashton Nyte, Wayne Hussey, Simon Gallup, Robin Zander, Evi Vine, Betsy Martin, dUg Pinnick, Kevin Kipnis, Michael Aston, Dirk Doucette, Al Jourgensen, Pando, Pete Parada, Rudy Matchinga, Michael Anthony, Marc Danzeisen, Eric Wood, Johnny Indovina and Ice-T!
