Aside from that, I posted a new blog.  You can check that out here.  It basically catches you up on recent shows.  Be sure and check it out if you missed any recent shows!

Also, sadly the "Video of the Week" segment is being discontinued until my phone is resurrected from its' bag of rice or an external harddrive is purchased for my Mac.

Have a great holiday, everybody!

Live long and manically,

Video of the Week! 


In light of my invitation to be the entertaintment next Saturday an official grand opening event at the new Huddle House in West Hamlin, West Virginia, I have uploaded an old video of me doing a song called "Little All Night Diner Girl" from my first cd "From My Own Rough Hands.'  This song was actually written inspired by Huddle House in Chapmanville, West Virginia!

Check out Video of the Week here!

Also, be on the lookout for locations to pick up physical copies of my cd!  They'll be in next week!  Are you as excited as I am?  As soon as I get the details set in stone for the cd release show, you'll be the first to know!  AND I'll be accepting credit cards, so you can't use that old Indian trick about not carrying cash!

Keep your nose clean,

(Working like a) dog days. 

Dear Anonymaniacs, 

MAN! I have been working my little booty off getting all this stuff up and running!

This will basically be an overall update of what I've been up to recently.

Maryland - I left August 7 and went on a little weekend deal with an amazing band from Huntington, WV named The Allure. We had an absolute blast. We were in Prince Frederick, California, Solomon, and Lexington. (Don't quote me on these town names; these guys were so fun that it's all a blur of laughter and beautiful music!) Be sure and check them out!

September tour with Mike Withrow of The McGees - Unfortunately, these dates (September 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8) have been put on hold. Between his schedule with The McGees and a few other bands he's involved in, my work schedule, and all the work I've been doing getting the page up and running, cd out, and all that jazz, we just weren't comfortable throwing it together without the proper time being put in. However, it will happen, and when we do it, we will be doing it right.

October tour with Corey Hager - Right now Corey and I are in the very early stages of planning out a 5 day journey to our north. Rest assured that as we get more details, you'll get more details!

Other than that, I've got a few shows in my area coming up.
Thursday August 22 - Porch Unplugged Huntington, WV w/ Sheldon Vance & more
Saturday August 24 - Empty Glass Charleston, WV w/ The Red Lights
Friday August 30 or Saturday August 31 - The Jug and Kilt w/ Sheldon Vance (confirmation will be in the next 48 hours)
September 4-9 Postponed Until Further Notice
Friday September 20 - Empty Glass Charleston, West Virginia Student Veterans of America Benefit Saturday
September 21 - Liz Spurlock Ampitheatre Logan, WV West Virginia Independent Music Festival

I'm so pumped to say the physical copies of my new CD "The Greatest Dances of the Last Quarter Century" are currently in production.  So, I'll be booking an official CD rease show in the next couple days. Announcement pending. 

May the mania be with you,
And also with you.
And you.
And you.
And you.

Welcome to the Mania! (8/18/13) 

Dear Beautiful People,

I would LOVE to welcome you all to!  This will be your source for EVERYTHING Derek Austin Bowen related.  

I've had this site up for a while, but had not been able to get it detailed like the fine automobile it is going to be!  With that being said, I am pleased to have it up and running!  Please take time to dig around and check out all the links!

Don't forget my new CD "The Greatest Dances of the Last Quarter Century" is now available on iTunes (click here for the CD on iTunes) , Google Play (click here for the CD on Google Play), and most every other online distrubitor.  Feel free to shoot me an email to ask any questions about where else you can find it!

For those of you holding out for physical copies, I promise they will be here soon.  As soon as they are in, I'll announce where I'll be selling them at locally!

May the Mania be with you,

P.S. Did I tell you that you're beautiful?!?!  Because you are!
