The Unspeakable Birthday

To celebrate the birthday of HP Lovecraft, I have hidden an obvious (albeit moderately obscure) reference to the Mythos in my bio. Think you can spot it? Find the "Easter Egg" and win a prize.... http://www.reverbnation.com/morrisonsprophecy

The Dreaming

Dreaming Comics is, to me, just as much a part of Seattle as The Space Needle, Coffee and The Underground City. They were the first retail outlet to carry my music. As such, they will always be part of my personal and professional history. More than that, Aron Tarbuck is one of my best friends on the planet. He helped me follow my dreams, now it's time to help him follow his. (Music by Morrison's Prophecy) http://t.co/E2bqSgwli5 ‪#‎gofundme‬


To celebrate the weekend (which in and of itself is worth celebrating- no official holiday needed), Morrison's Prophecy (in conjunction with Hunger and Bills) bring you this SPECIAL OFFER: This weekend only, our debut album "The Alchemical Process" is just $1*. Yes, the whole 13-track album. Just follow the link below and have a great weekend from the Catacombs of the Seattle Underground! *You can pay more if you'd like. We won't argue. http://morrisonsprophecy.bandcamp.com/album/the-alchemical-process


Unwoman is not only one of my favorite "Steampunk" acts, Erica is one of my favorite people. I had the honor of playing following her performance at Steamcon in Bellevue last year. We had a conversation in which I was able to thank her for inspiring my daughter to pursue Cello. Though sharing a stage with a talent of this caliber was incredible, that feeling can not eclipse the light I saw in her eyes when I told her that my daughter plays her instrument of choice BECAUSE of her. Erica: I'd just like you to know that as a father, a musician and a human being, I will be forever indebted to you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being an inspiration to my daughter and to daughters everywhere. Love, Respect and Admiration from the Catacombs of the Seattle Underground. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUjODc7uRi0

Fine. You win.

Alright.....here's the deal. I am REALLY GOOD at composing music. Seriously. No, I'm not bragging...... I've finally accepted that all of you who have told me this are right and I have not been allowing myself to realize that, yes, I'm really fucking good. A Lot of musicians feel the same way, I'm sure: "My friends tell me I'm good because they are my friends." "That guy at the show was really drunk, so I sounded better to him". "I really don't do that much, honestly." "I suppose I'm okay, but I'm not as good as so and so" ETC Well screw that.... I give up. I agree with everyone who's told me I'm good. So if you haven't checked it out yet..... hear what other people have tuned into, but *I* was too insecure to realize..... Thank you all for beating this message into my thick skull PS: This is just the tip of the iceberg......... http://morrisonsprophecy.bandcamp.com/releases

Solstice Update -or- "So where the hell is this new album?"

I will make no excuses for the delay in the release of "Geistmusik". It was due last year and it has still not been released. The album has been a bitter and painful thing for me. I am delving into recesses of my psyche which have been locked away for nearly 20 years. I am examining old wounds and scars and laying myself bare, broken and flayed on this album. This is "Kevin".....not "The Reverend Worlock Kevin J Byrne Esq"..... this is just "me", flawed, damaged and broken. "Geistmusik" is a mix of Queensryche's "Operation: Mindcrime" and "The Plaguemass" by Diamanda Galas: It is "Morrison's Prophecy" stripped bare and bleeding. It is not intended to be "Easy Listening". It WILL offend. It WILL hurt and (for those of you who, like me, suffer the scars of religious trauma), it WILL be revelatory. . I do not say these things lightly, nor as an excuse for the delay. I only ask that you understand that each track on this album was wrought with my blood, sweat and tears.


In Honor of the Summer Solstice, I'd just like to take a moment to thank all of you who have supported me. I often forget that i have "Fans"... no,.not because I'm too wrapped up in myself to notice, but because I think of most of you as "Friends who I met through my music". No, I don't get a chance to talk to all of you individually as much as I'd like (but let's face it.....there are now a whole hell of a lot more of you out there than when I started this whole Morrison's Prophecy thing......more than I ever expected really) No, I may not be playing sell-out crowds in huge arenas (yet), but I wanted to thank each and every one of you for making me feel like a "Star". I Love you all. Thank you. May the Solstice see a new day dawn in your lives (whether you believe in hokey mumbo jumbo or not) -RWKJB http://morrisonsprophecy.bandcamp.com/track/vi-emotion-the-star
