The new official video for my song “Needles” is out now! We set out to make a music video… that’s really a short film… that’s so good, it looks like it could be a teaser for a feature film! Did we hit our mark? You be the judge…
Some words from the writer and director, Amos McKay…
“The song to me evokes images of an Orwellian society taken over by conformity and eventually government mind control. I was inspired by the classically dark storylines and contrasted imagery from shows reminiscent of The Twilight Zone and decided to do my own version complete with a vintage sense of the future. This story unfolds the day in the life of a memory conversion operator (a person who converts memories into energy) who’s become so apathetic to his duties that he’s now blind to the horrors he commits daily. In true The Twilight Zone fashion, the operator has the tables turned on him in a climactic twist that I hope would be worthy of Rod Serling’s approval,”

Soccer and video games…two of my BFFs. Any FIFA fans out there may be delighted to hear my song, “KITTY HAWK” in EA SPORTS official trailer for FIFA 14. It will also be featured in the game and on the soundtrack due out this fall. Pretty cool…
When it’s good…When I’m on…I enjoy creating music more than anything I have experienced in this world. It’s taken me some time, but I think I’ve whittled down a cord worth of raw feelings into a focused collection of two to six minute pieces of myself. Some of these small pieces I have been guarding for too long. KITTY HAWK is one such piece. I am honored, humbled and grateful to be sharing it with you as the first single off the forthcoming Ki:Theory record dropping this fall.
KITTY HAWK is a place from my youth, a source of energy as well as power… and now it’s a song by Ki:Theory.
Thank you DJ Shadow (and Ki:Theory…) fans of the fine city of Charlottesville, VA. You’re energy and enthusiasm was received and welcomed. Can’t wait to be back! Please enjoy some great shots taken by photographer Mr. Jack Looney – and to him I express my thanks as well.

My good friend Matt Brehony (Big Bang TV) and I have been getting together over the last few months and working on music as schedules permit. What started as a scoring job for Betsey Johnson has become Weird Friends; a side project and outlet for mainly his songs with me producing and engineering. You can download the track “Cartwheels” now on our BandCamp page and look for a new song called “Avery Saves The Day” coming soon…Big thanks to Matt Pamer for supplying us with the cover art.
