A newly released single "Davy Jones" has propelled its creator, Robert Palomo, from completely total obscurity to mostly total obscurity in a matter of days.

And it's driving Big-time music execs bonkers!

And have some free music.
And support the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts of the Red Cross.

Earlier this summer I joined my friends who comprise the Shanty Choir Tall Ship MIR - a sort of semi-official musical group of the STS Mir. We drove from Saint-Petersburg to Kotka, Finland to meet the ship, which was sailing in the 2017 Baltic Sea Tall Ships Races. We sailed with the ship across the Baltic to Tallinn, Estonia, where we did a show at the city marina.

The groups piper, Viktor, who is also an active tall ship sailor, arranged for a photographer/videographer to follow the group. Among his equipment was a copter drone with which he shot some amazing footage of Mir and the tall ships leaving Kotka. Viktor had also scripted out scenes for a music video, and during the afternoon en route to Tallinn we dressed in nautical garb and went before the camera. A few weeks later the video came out... and I think they did a great job with it.
