The Ill Pirsona

After a (very long) interuption, illpirsona.com is back!

Hello all,
While this site was never offline or unavailable, I was unable to add or change content on it for some time, which is why my last post is dated December of 2013… Long story short, there was some weird issue with the previous host of my domains (www.pirsona.com and www.theillpirsona.com also point to this domain), which they could not or would not resolve for me, and it basically locked me out of most admin features of my domains.
So, with the help of my good friends at WebAura Media I have moved the hosting, am set-up with a much better website, and plan to start posting again soon. I also plan to update the site with a fresher look and (finally) a media player for my songs and videos. Watch for all of that stuff over the winter…
And thanks to all my friends, family, and fans for all their continued love and support over the years. More great new Ill Pirsona music will be coming out in 2015!

Early Summer Update on Pirsona and Lothario

Hello all. It’s been a busy winter and spring for me and my band. Both with personal stuff and also with some creative work. Lothario is VERY close to finishing up the Tornado Free Recordings (TFR) EP that we recorded last summer during and after the tornado ripped though the northside and took away Clint James’ family’s home. CJ is now living in Green Bay, Wisconsin but is still a very big part of what Lothario is up to these days.
In other Lothario news, we are tentatively going to be playing the Red Sea with King Tuesday again on August 18th. Just waiting for confirmation on that. We’ll also be playing “Larrypalooza”, a camping and jamming event in Clear Lake Wisconsin. Again, just waiting for all the details on that one too so we can get the websites updated. And finally, once we have the TFR EP printed we’ll be putting together a CD Release party. That will most likely happen at Wrinkle Studios. It’s a fitting venue for this EP release considering we played a show there shortly after the tornado to benefit our fellow northsiders who were adversely affected by the storm.

In Ill Pirsona news, I’m still plugging away at my William’s Wall solo project — just a couple of more songs to record on that one, plus finalizing the album art and getting it printed and everything. I’ve been saying this for years, but maybe it will be done this winter.
In the meantime, if you’re fiending for some old fashioned Pirsona raps, I will also be doing a solo set at the Larrypalooza event in Wisconsin listed above. So come out and camp and drink and have some fun with us!
And finally, I am still planning to finish up this website one of these days. Get the gallery up and some of my music for y’all to download. Soon. I promise!
