I'm so grateful to be playing and creating music with some of my best friends, and to start playing live again is going to be great! If you haven't taken the time to hear our newest album, "Earnest Goodbye", have a listen. I'm not just telling you to listen to it because it's the band I'm with, but I truly believe it's good music.
Here's a link to the album: DOUBT APLOMB "Earnest Goodbye"
We will be performing our first show in 5 months this coming weekend at Bombay here in Ventura, CA on Sat. the 15th around 9 or 10PM.. come say hi and hear the album live... here's a practice session from a few weeks ago.
I just came across these 35mm scans i took probably a year ago at this bar in Ventura called Bombay, I remember my band played a show right before or right after Deepak, the dude is so freaking under rated in my opinion, I recently moved back to Ventura and ran into him at my storage unit, he was selling his traveling truck / van thing and was heading out to play some shows in NY, Costa Rica, and Louisiana maybe... ??? Anyways, where ever he is, the audience is in for a real treat.

STEM is a short documentary that dives into the artwork and mind of Micah Steph. I grew up with Micah on the Gulf Coast of Texas, surfing and painting always. Micah is still doing his thing and has been creating some extremely interesting pieces of work in my opinion. He rips at surfing too.. such and epic guy, glad to have him as my friend!

When I was living on the Outer Banks of North Carolina a few months ago, I was doing some assisting work filming with Nic McLean.. he's such a great person to work with, you learn alot really fast and end up laughing constantly because he's such a character! This particular day we were filming a video for a non-profit organization called "Durham Cares" out of Durham, NC. I brought my 120mm Mamiya along for the ride that day. Check out Nic's work, he'll blow your mind! www.tightproductionfilms.com

2013 has been the best / worst year of my life. A lot happened / is happening and i've just tried to ride it out the best i know. I've found myself in TX over the past month or so regrouping so to say. Seeing family, and old friends.. playing a lot of music, working on a new album titled, "Girl Adored" (coming soon), surfing when its not freezing cold, reading, writing, eating healthy, doing yoga and just living for now.

Talented Love from JR Watson on Vimeo.
This is a compilation of shots of my goof friends, the Duffy Family that i was filming for one of Tyler Nilson's projects on the Outer Banks, NC this year. I loved this song and had all these extra clips so i made this out of it all and named it "Talented Love" because these people are such a strong family and show their love well for each other.(film & edit: JR Watson , direction: Tyler Nilson, music: Jesse Woods)
