The Hero and The Villain

Debut Album Available Now!!! 

Click Here to Stream the Album!!!

It took just under 6 months to write and record the debut album, but the release date of June 4th, 2021 has finally arrived and The Hero and The Villain could not be more excited to share this creation with the masses!  Looking back on the tumultuous year that was 2020, in no way, shape, or form would The Hero and The Villain have ever thought a full-length album would be written, let alone recorded, mixed, mastered, and released in such a short time-frame, yet here we are.  This is easily some of the best material that this enigmatic singer/songwriter has ever produced, and with a handful of song ideas already in the works for various follow-up EPs and albums, this is only the tip of the iceberg for The Hero and The Villain!!!

The album is currently available on SPOTIFY, APPLE MUSIC, PANDORA, ITUNES, and pretty much everywhere you can possibly think to stream music, and you can also purchase physical copies of the album directly from the website as well, with a portion of all proceeds from physical album sales (and 100% of all digital album and individual track sales) being donated to the #PutTheNailInIt foundation.

YouTube Exclusive - Cover - Purple Rain (Prince) 

For this week's video, I decided to do my best in channeling the most legendary musician to ever grace this planet in Prince Rogers Nelson on the week culminating in what should have been his 63rd birthday.  While the legend known as The Artist wrote and recorded more musical compositions than most of us can count to, we all know he had so much more talent to share and was just taken away too soon.  My ultimate goal as a musical artist was to someday meet the man in some form or another, and while that can't happen in this existence, at least I feel that connection to this one-of-a-kind musical genius whenever I play one of his songs.  I hope you all enjoy this one as much as I loved recording it!!!

YouTube Exclusive - Cover - I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) (The Proclaimers) 

While patiently waiting for the album release on JUNE 4TH, I decided to focus the rest of the month on performing some of my favorite covers, and this one has always topped the list for me.  Going back to the early 90's, I listened to this song constantly growing up and it has always stuck with me as being one of the greatest songs ever written and recorded.  I hope you enjoy this one, as it is always a fun one to play!!!
