Quiet Entertainer Releases New Record: Intelligent Design

My new record is finally here! It’s called Intelligent Design. It’s the most rewarding collection of music I’ve done because you can start to hear a new production style and writing style that I’ve been working on.

The Billy Goats – Hey Girl (Quiet Entertainer Remix)

Here’s my remix of The Billy Goats track “Hey Girl.” Basically, it’s kind of a mashup with that track and “Khanada” by Reporter. I like the Reporter track but I wanted it to be beefier for the live show. I liked the Billy Goats track but I wanted fewer lyrics. So this was the best

Bizarre Tribe by Amerigo Gets Shut Down by Sony

Now this is Hip Hop. I’m so proud of Gummy Soul. I’ve already blogged about them here. But what they are going through now highlights how much work an artist has to go through to protect his or her self. It also makes me appreciate hip hop artists from way back with all the sampling

Here’s a quick shot from the DJ Shadow After-Party at the High Watt. Photo Taken by Christopher Price. This was a great time and a great show to be at. DJ Shadow is easily my biggest DJ Hero. So it was great to be in the same building with him while also doing my thing.

Quiet Entertainer on tour with Mutemath? Fall 2012?

The unthinkable has happened. Let me break it down for you. Mutemath. They’ve been my favorite band for years. For almost a decade. I’ve been a superfan since their very first show. I was a superfan of the band members’ previous bands. Let’s just say I’ve been on board the band wagon for a long
