"FOR PERFORMING ROCK AND ROLL . . THERE'S ONLY ONE THING YOU NEED: NERVE" - LESTER BANGS, 1980
Small World -
Merely four months after the release of his debut album, “Get Your Shit Together!, Chuck W. has returned to rock your socks into the stratosphere. Somewhat spacier, certainly darker, and definitely more thematic, this record is an interesting twist on what you’ve already seen coming from the NY based Synthesist.
Please check out this Small World Explained document if you’d like to learn more about the inspirations, fears, anxieties, influences and emotions that allowed for this album to come to be. Full disclosure – It is extensive and will be offered along side the digital download.
Woohoo! Today's The Day! The 'Fakin' It' Single (Featuring 3 Previously Unheard Chuck W. B-Sides) has hit Stores!
if you don't listen then you will ruin my self-esteem and any semblance of self-worth
So, please, everyone do your favorite introvert a favor and give the single a listen right here! You donating any bits, pieces, or milliseconds of your time to hearing stuff born of my brain is pretty damn cool and exciting. Thank you in advance if you find you do have a moment to give a listen!
Cheers and Peace Out,

Artist Reach Direct was kind enough to do a feature on 'Get Your Shit Together!' which can be read here.
