It’s Been Awhile
...yep. been awhile since I’ve updated my site…..like 3 years awhile. But I’ve got an excuse! Turns out, a pretty good one too. On February 13, 2017, about 10 minutes before Valentine’s Day, my absolutely perfect son Jonah David Pierce came into this world. It seems like everything before him was in slow motion, and now I’m in fast forward with no way of slowing anything down. 2016 was a year to prep for Jonah, and the past 2 years have been a wonderful and beautiful blur. I’ve had to teach myself how to write my music in the smallest of time spaces and become as efficient as I possibly can. Being a full time “stay at home dad,” means early morning and late night writing. Everything in between is kid time, and, as it turns out, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve had some wonderful musical experiences over the past few years, writing music for my Halloween Show Cirque du Horror, as well as horn and string arrangements for grammy-nominated Elle King, Josh Seymour and Jason Vandygriff, Kelsey Wilson aka “Sir Woman,” and the Texas Gentlemen’s 2nd Album. I’ve also had the pleasure premiering some “jazzy-classical” works (for double, nay! triple-sized brass ensemble) with the DFW-based brass group, the Imperial Brass. Looks like this coming 2019 Holiday season will bring the same “big brass” collaboration with the Plano Chorus as well! So, I’ve stayed busy. I’ve updated the site with some newer songs and a little this and that, and will try my very hardest to remain diligent with all of this. I’ve decided to stop being an old curmodgean and stepped into the world of Instagram, so give me a follow @deepears or @cirqueduhorror. My best to you all.
