Firooz said it best: For two days we ran around the River Market area in Kansas City and shot this video.

There is nothing more… Continue reading Watch Our New Music Video!

There’s this song by The Blow called, “True Affection“, that I absolutely love. It is beautiful, catchy, and simple and means something different to everyone who listens to it. THAT is the sign of a good song. When it means something to you. The great songs mean different things to you over time. For me,… Continue reading True Affection
One of the common threads amongst musicians worldwide is our ability to find new uses for duct tape. There was a time where I had duct-taped a microphone to a broom which was duct taped to a chair so that I had a microphone that reached my mouth. Another time, I duct-taped two broken drum… Continue reading Duct Tape Guitar Strap
Wow! How the time flies! I stumbled upon this classic video from a year ago that I filmed the night I bought my Macbook. Enjoy!
Today I might be playing a show with local rock legend, John Stowell, over at the Acadia Cafe. John called the other day and asked me to sit in with his band on the ukulele. Sounds like fun! The show is at 2 p.m. and is free to get in…I think… Also, I am trying… Continue reading Rahm the Attack Dog

At the behest of my friend, producer, MBA-level-advisor, and guitar aficionado, Ryan, I am posting this guitar lesson for “Boulder”, a song off my band’s last record. The song highlights the struggles of maintaining a long-distance relationship with a girl in Boulder, CO when I was living on the East Coast. Those were good times,… Continue reading Guitar Lesson for "Boulder"
This is the second of what will hopefully be a long series of guitar lessons, where I teach you how to play songs off of my albums on the guitar. I realize the audience for these videos is amazingly small, but hopefully they will add value to that small segment of the populace that 1)… Continue reading Guitar Lesson: "Val"
This is one of many great songs that my oldest brother has written over the years. His original version can be downloaded hereBombay Doors. I play the song much like I do many in recent years – with a swing beat. I love it! http://www.cryns.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/spank_-bombay_doors.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download
This is a video I just recorded in my living room of me singing (and playing) “2 Sisters”, a song that will be featured prominently on the new record.
