Sometimes, right in the middle of everything, you just go, “What the fuck?” I do this quite a lot, actually. My general state at any particular moment is discombobulation. Thanks to being on the spectrum, if I think I understand what's going on, I'm almost invariably wrong. And if I think I know how to do something, or how to go about doing something, it rarely ends well. You can look around my studio at home and see just how fractured my brain is. I bounce from shiny object to shiny object, and nothing gets done, and I generally don't get anywhere. It's fucking frustrating.
By the way, here's a random demon. I made this during one of my obsessive A.I. noodlings and it occured to me... hey, that could be a self portrait. I'm fairly certain this is how some people see me. It is what it is.
[NOTE: Like nearly everything else on this web site, the following is an experimental exercise. I was curious what kinds of interview questions ChatGPT would come up with if I added lyrics and told it I was a releasing a single. And then, well, I answered thsoe questions. If nothing else, it will give some background on "Billy Ray Montgomery".]
Can you share with us the inspiration behind your new single, released on January 1st, 2024?
It’s just a groove that took on a life of its own. It probably says a lot that it’s the first song on the album I’ve finished, even though I’ve been working on all of them for years. True to the subject matter, the song just kept coming.
We're very pleased to announce the first single from In The Fifth Circle has been released as of January 1st, 2024.
“Billy Ray Montgomery” has been released to most of the major streaming services. As of this date we've confirmed
the new single has posted to
Amazon Music, and
Apple Music. It will propagate out to dozens of other streaming platforms
in the next few days or weeks. So if “Billy Ray Montgomery” isn't on your platform of choice right now, check again
tomorrow or in the next few days. He may be a slickery
fucker guy who goes his own way and does what he wants, but he'll get there eventually.
