Love & Monsters

Listen to Love & Monsters... then buy it!

Friday, July 18th, 2014

My final instrumental songs made under the name Nik Furious are now available for your hungry ears:

I contributed six tracks to this Love & Monsters album, featuring four other fabulous cuts from Jesse Spillane and Sam Star.

If you backed our successful Kickstarter campaign late last year, then you should already have a download code waiting for you in your inbox. However, if you didn't pre-order our project... then you can buy it now!

For $10 you get our 10-track album AND a 90-page PDF of comics by Cynthia Lee, Shawn Atkins, Jared Catherine, and Virginia Shields. That's a pretty sweet deal!

I hope you enjoy these jams. Although Nik Furious may finally be takin' the ol' dusty trail off into the horizon, I'll be back soon with a new music name and some fresh instrumental cuts.

Love & Monsters is funded!

Thanks to everyone who backed the crazy Love & Monsters comics and music anthology on Kickstarter.

It was a real nail-biter but we passed our funding goal with less than 24 hours to go and even reached a couple of stretch goals before things wrapped up last night.

I truly appreciate your support. I've had a lot of fun working on my Nik Furious cuts for Love & Monsters and I can't wait for you to hear all of the finished songs.

In case you missed 'em, you can listen to three of the six Nik Furious songs that you'll receive as a backer of this project:

- Wet-On-Wet
- Rare Tear demo
- Don't Stop demo

Props to Cynthia Lee, who organized and ran the campaign. There was a while there where I thought we might not make it, but she was confident in her plan and made sure that we finished in fine form.

I've got plans for a special solo Kickstarter campaign (both comics and music again) in 2014, so get ready for a li'l more crowdfunded fun from me next year!

Get more Nik Furious music by pledging to Love & Monsters

I'm creating original songs for the Love & Monsters anthology on Kickstarter.

It's a comics and music anthology featuring four incredible cartoonists and three kickass musicians (including yours truly!). I'm proud to be a part of this collection because it blends mediums and genres in a really fun, thoughtful way.

I think you're gonna dig it too!!! And I need your support to make it happen. Pop over to the Kickstarter campaign and pick a pledge level that makes you and your wallet happy.

Here's me talking about why I love making instrumental theme music and why I'm stoked to be a part of this project:

I'm creating music for stories by Shawn Atkins and Virginia Shields, two of my favorite people AND favorite cartoonists!

Shawn's story is a crazy sci-fi music adventure featuring an underwater battle of the bands with robots, monsters, and more.

One of the songs I've crafted for Shawn's project is called Wet-On-Wet and you can listen to it now.

Virginia's story is about a romance between unlikely forest creatures.

I've already completed a crazy synthed-out jam for her story that I think you'll love, especially if you dig my other tunes like RAW or Destruct-O-Groove.

I need your help to make Love & Monsters into the biggest and best anthology that it can be. A few bucks goes a long way towards making it happen, and that's why I need your support on Kickstarter! Thx ๐Ÿ˜€
