Resuming my webshow, A Bit Too Intimate

Here are the latest in my weekly video series. Both are me playing alone at The Shed, my home studio: "Just Singing a Song" (#9), originally on Fix (2009), and "A Little Bit Ludicrous" (#8), which is a new song that will be on my upcoming album, due out in March 2017.

Two new releases: Adam Balbo Archives

These are the first two of (hopefully) an ongoing series of compilations of mine. They are available only to subscribers. These two albums include unreleased demos (from my earliest recordings when I was 19 years old onward), live shows and radio performances, and (eventually) interviews.

Show in Salt Lake City, Utah

Here is me during a performance on August 27th a block away from the The Salt Lake Temple. It was a good show. Local bands James Miska and Widdrim also played. We held it outside in the comfortably cool night, next to the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, where my friend, Leeza Meksin, had an exhibition opening the previous night. The show was on a small concrete plaza in the lawn between the building and the street. Someone brought a wonderful floor lamp.

Video playlist: A Bit Too Intimate

I made seven episodes of my webshow, A Bit Too Intimate, which opens with a monologue or skit, followed by a live clip of a song. I've hit a wall, though. So, it will be an occasional thing. Check them all out here - and subscribe for latest videos.

New Video: "Shit Is So Fucking Sad"

This is the official music video for "Shit Is So Fucking Sad," off the album Demons. Andrew and I shot and edited this ourselves at my home studio, The Shed, in Oakland, California. This is the first music video that we've made ourselves. The only other true music video is Helen Lee's wonderful animation for "The Girl At My Pity Party" (Fix, 2009). This was fun. We're gonna do many more. Soon.
