Back in December last year, we were contacted by Joey Creel, a professional documentary filmmaker to sponsor the documentary film for Jason Richardson, an incredibly talented guitarist. Sharing with the same passion for raw denim, we felt very glad to be able to sponsor our jeans to them.
Just last week we have received an email from Joey with the weekly update video links and we just can't wait to share them with you all.
In short, this documentary video is about following guitarist Jason Richardson through his journey to record his first solo album. There will be intimate interviews with Jason, and people who takes part in the album creating process.

A little background about Jason: he is a very talented guitarist who is best known from shredding in the bands All Shall Perish, Born Of Osiris, Chelsea Grin, as well as guest spots for the bands Veil of Maya, Polyphia and more. After years of internationally touring with all three bands, he decided to part ways to focus on his own music. Jason will be joined on the drums by Luke Holland (The Word Alive) and other well known musicians such as Jeff Loomis, Jacky Vincent, Rick Graham, Nick Johnston, Wes Hauch, Spencer Sotelo, and more on the album! 

Thanks for sharing your work with us Joey! Awesome job! And last but not least, Jason, best of luck for your album! Can't wait to see you guys wearing our denim on screen.

On a Spotify “New Music Tuesday” playlist  last summer, I discovered this British singer James Bay.  If you recall, he was opener for the Rolling Stone concert at Hyde Park.

Chaos and the Calm’s his first full-length album following a pair of well-received EPs, reveals he has a precocious talent as a 24-year-old songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist.


Let It Go as he winds together elements of pop, folk, rock, blues, and soul. What initially caught my ear then, and still does, is the complete earnestness in which he sings. You can feel and almost see the heartbreak thanks to his visual lyrics.


Hold back the river there is something about this song that quickly draws you in and picks you up from any slump you’re in at the moment.

I could listen to his latest album all day, and I think you'll enjoy it too. Check out the song below.
