Who are you?
That’s kinda deep. Here goes nothin…I am a man, not a myth, and definitely not a legend. I play in the band Midlake and reside in Denton, TX with my wife and two dogs. We have a music studio, a bar (Paschall Bar), and I co-own a screen print company (Norman Roscoe). If you’d like to know more, please come visit Denton and we’ll talk on deeper subjects like religion, politics, and football. I’ll get the first round!
What’s you favorite pair of shoes?
The Anne by HELM has been the only boot my feet have known for the past five years of live shows. And I’m happy to say, like a good wine, they keep getting better with age!
A wise man once said, ‘If it ain’t broke don’t fix it’. Well, they have been well ‘broken’ in now, and they are indeed my ultimate fix for footwear.
Where did you get them?
I bought them online at www.helmboots.com
Share something that’s happened to you while wearing those shoes?
We were playing a festival in Sweden a few years ago and we went on right before Arcade Fire. I had met a couple of the guys before but didn’t know them well, so we were eager for the opportunity. As with many festivals, other artists will watch from side stage so it can add to the possible insecurity of performing when you see them perched in your peripheral. When done, we of course hoped we’d had a good show and set the stage well for their forthcoming performance. As I was leaving the stage one of the guys stopped me. Thinking that he might say ‘great show’ or some words of encouragement on our set, I was humbled when he instead gave credence elsewhere saying ‘Hey man, I love your boots’. I proudly shared with him what they were, but then knew that Helm Boots was the real rock star, and I was just lucky enough to be the roadie 😉
