Hi. My name is Atom, and I used to spend most of my free time making songs on sort of a combination synthesizer/multi-track recording thing called a sequencer. I know it sounds a little “walk barefoot in the snow uphill both ways back in the day” to claim that when I did this, the music sequencer required TWO whole hands to carry around, rather than the better tools one can now carry in her or his phone with one stupid lazy hand that probably doesn’t even appreciate this 50% reduction of hand-necessocity. I (poorly) named this project Atom and His Package. Somehow, I managed to release a few records and to travel to places I wouldn’t have anticipated to play. I stopped when it became way more enjoyable to listen to and to seek out other people’s better music than try to write my own. Now, I’m a double-dad science teacher. This is a pretty good sell, so far, right? Well, I’m going play a bunch of songs in Gainesville Florida in October of 2017. Wanna go?
