I was blown away yesterday, literally blown away.
While I was streaming Song Domination on my Twitch channel, I received a $600 donation from ECCA Award which helped the stream reach the $2000 camera goal… After which, I was informed by one of the board members of the ECCA Awards board that I had actually received an ECCA Award grant!!
The grant included the gifting not only of the $600, but also a tonne of high-quality gear to help the stream level up. Included in this list of gear was a Sony A7R II camera [This camera is NEXT LEVEL], a Shure SM7B microphone and an AVerMedia GC573 capture card!
You can see my understandably thrilled and excited reaction here.
I found out that the ECCA Awards are a non-profit group, supporting emerging content creators!! [Hence the ECC in their name]. They highlight content creators on their website. And are, also, soon going to offer resources on their site to help content creators such as:
– Business-related training materials and forms [as content creators are small businesses]
– Resources to combat common enemies [hackers/stream snipers, etc]
– Serve as a neutral third party to host standards for broadcasts such as volume levels, etc.
How awesome is that? Rather dang awesome. That’s how awesome. They’re on Twitter, so I highly recommend following them on there and seeing the good work their doing and so you can see when the resources go up [as well as watch them make streamers’ dreams come true!].
Thank you ECCA Awards! I am honoured to have been selected by you!
My Westworld themed EP, ‘Violent Delights’, is officially released!! You can listen to the entire EP right here by clicking play:
You can also add the EP to your playlists on Spotify 🙂
I’m super proud of this EP. It’s been over a year in the making and it’s something completely different to anything I’ve ever released before! In particular, I’m especially proud of the lyrics [which you can read on the Music page of this website if you’re a word muncher!]. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it 😀
It’s now officially one week until my Westworld themed EP ‘Violent Delights’ is released to the world!! There’s now a Sampler you can listen to where you can hear small snippets of each of the five songs, spec it out:
As well as the sampler, pre-orders for the EP are now open! You can pre-order a download of the EP on my website shop or iTunes. You can also pre-order a physical copy of the EP or a special Violent Delights Deluxe Pack on my website shop.
I can’t wait for you to hear the full EP! I’ve worked for over a year on it, it’s a project I’m hugely passionate about, and I’m super proud of how it’s turned out.
