“A Passive Rage” – SHORT FILM

Have you ever had that feeling of frustration when you couldn’t come up with anything new? I had been struggling with my attempts at coming up with some new visual styles in the past few days. So I had been getting down on myself for a while before trying something new.

I had never heard of “Morning Pages” before today. So, wanting to try anything that would get the creative juices flowing again I wrote my first three pages. These were nothing groundbreaking, just thoughts and affirmations that I felt at the time. Nothing was off limits, and nothing was stupid or lame. What was written didn’t matter. What was most important was the act of writing.

This helped my mind get into the “Mode”, if you will. After writing these pages I felt okay, and had really cleared my head of all self-doubt. Before I knew it I was looking through my old video files and was experimenting with in After Effects.

I was able to put together a new short film in the time after writing my morning pages. I had done what I set out to do, and found a way to spark my creativity when I needed it most.

Check out the final product below…

“A Passive Rage”

So I highly recommend that you try writing a few pages when you have time in the morning. This was something that I am happy to have found, and I plan on trying this every morning for the rest of the week. I will plan on posting the final products here for everyone to check out.

Until next time, keep up the good work and stay inspired.

Discount on GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION!!

So, I have released my last two projects on all the major streaming platforms and online stores. I have also released music in physical form on CD’s, DVD’s and even a few USB drives! But times do change, and as artists we need to keep ahead of the game. I want to share with you a special offer from the amazing people at DistroKid! If you want to save some of your hard earned cash, and want a fast and easy way to get your music out there…KEEP reading!

DistroKid is the easiest way for musicians to get music into iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, and more.

I like to consider myself a “go-getter”. Someone that has the will and the capability to get things done. You should think of yourself as the same! So when I wanted to release my music on all the platforms my favorite artists were on, I hit the ground running! I did my homework and I looked around. I did what you all should be doing, looking for the best way to achieve your goals!

During the time I was doing my research, I came across tons of different Aggregators. That’s a big’o fancy word for the middle man between you and the majors like Spotify and iTunes. These companies help you submit your music to all the major platforms. Some platforms only accept submissions via Aggregators (iTunes, Spotify, Tidal and so on). So you would need to be in contact with these Aggregators to even THINK of submitting your music.

While I was looking into all these different options, I did what you all do as well, shop around. These sites are different, and many have different features than the rest. I narrowed it down along the way, but I continue to use different Aggregators. Each for different features and perks. You should do your own research and as always, find what is best for you!

Now, let’s get to the good stuff!

So let’s get real for a second. I know what you’re thinking, “Why would Inviere want to help all-of-a-sudden?” Well a little disclosure on my part. I have used DistroKid for the past year now. I have looked over all the fine print, and have tried my best to get a good understanding of this company. Over the past year I have not had any major issues with them, and they seem to be solid. So, for me to put this much into something, should prove that this is not a scheme. DistroKid has many features that are great for up and coming musicians. I’ll get into that later on, but one of these features is the referral program.

What is the Referral program? Well when a major company wants to expand its customer base. They give incentives to their users, that share their service. This is like other services and games where you invite your friends to sign up in return for perks. But this is no game, and this is not for entertainment! This is to help give you (the artist) a chance to get your music where you want it. This is a chance to move your career further, and a chance to step up to another level. Do I get something out of this? Sure. Is it something major, no. What is it exactly? It’s a chance for me to earn extra income, while getting the word out about a product that has helped me.

“Tell Me I’m Wrong” – Album ART!

“Tell Me I’m Wrong” – Joseph Inviere, Album Art

New Album Art for the soon to be released track!


Whats up everyone? Inviere here, and in this edition I wanted to share the artwork for a new song! I wanted to share with you the final artwork and a few details on the upcoming release. The track, “Tell Me I’m Wrong”, is something new and I’m excited to share it with everyone soon! So let’s get to it!

Recently I have been working on what I would call, “Post Production/Pre Release” part of the game. I have been working on sending the tracks to the copyright office, and completing the artwork for the song. I had finished all the fun parts of the creative process, (Writing, Recording and Performing) and now it was time to prep for release.

I would call this song an alternative acoustic song. I only have a few instruments on the track, and they were all recorded live in my home studio. This included my trusty P-Bass, and custom 808 plug-in, my acoustic-electric guitar, a vintage ibanez delay pedal, and a digitech looper! This song was a breath of fresh air for me. I felt like I was able to do something new, without overthinking it and just do what I felt was right.

So, with that being said I hope you all are excited to check out the final artwork for the track! I hope you all look forward to the song’s release! I will keep everyone posted about the release date, but make sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and all that stuff for more info as it happens!

Thanks for everything and I hope you have an amazing Sunday afternoon! Keep the fight alive and be safe!

Local Flavor: Pecan Festival

Whats good everyone?! It’s Inviere here, and in this edition I want to share with you some amazing local flavor! James Doom and I were in town for the first annual Pecan Festival in Mesilla, NM and were able to check out the historic plaza and some of the amazing local vendors. Roll with us as we check out the local flavor, scope the scene and enjoy a super chilled Saturday afternoon. Let’s Get it!

Now, this event was a new thing in the area. This was the first annual Pecan Festival, and don’t quote me on the name. But there was a lot at this event and spanned the main road through the town of Mesilla. There was a county fair type event at the local high school, and a car show in the parking lot of city hall. We stuck around the plaza and checked out the local shops and taverns in the area.
