Aug. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- Eclectic PDX based musician and producer Nick Arneson announces the upcoming August 17th release of his album 'MidLifeCrisis'. The first single "Once" and full album will be previewed next week ahead of the Friday worldwide release.

Portland native Nick Arneson is set to release his latest album 'MidLifeCrisis" on Friday, August 17th. As a 30-something singer-songwriter, producer and media creative, Arneson is unusually enthusiast towards the unconventional, and has set some bold plans into play to promote his album. The 7.5 track release will be followed-up by a recently announced series of invite-only "Live From The Barn" shows that can also be streamed online for those outside the PDX region. As Arneson's favorite place to write and record, 'MidLifeCrisis' was also produced and mixed inside The Barn located in the Portland area.

Arneson's brand of indie rock is dominant in areas of unease and vulnerability, touching lyrically on topics relating to what he describe as "real life, adult shit" while blending complex layers of instruments to convey his emotion and passion for songwriting. In a recent review, No Depression ( described his music as "..soulful indie tracks" being "an ode to getting older and all the responsibilities that come with it". "His lyrics are reflective and enthralling". 'MidLifeCrisis' will be available August 17th via most digital service providers including Spotify, Apple Music and iTunes.

About Nick Arneson:

Nick Arneson is restless. To say the 39 year old has a hard time sitting in one place for any amount of time is an understatement (let's just say he taps endlessly). With his two kids, career and wife it's a wonder he hasn't thrown in the towel on music. "I have more to write about, the more real my life gets" he states – not lamenting, more pointing out matter-of-factly. "I have a lot of friends who completely called it quits after turning 30," he continues, "that's when I started writing."

He started writing this album after releasing a short EP that he was almost immediately dissatisfied with. "I tried to mix it all myself before I was ready to do so, it's sloppy and out there forever, haha" only sort of laughing. 'MidLifeCrisis', his 7.5 song album set for an August 17th release, turned into an obsession. "I was in the Barn every night for 2 months, most nights not coming in until after 1 am." "My wife is very supportive and she's used to me not sleeping a whole lot."

His songs have the backbone of someone obsessed with rhythm and the movement that "music needs to have." Lyrically, he tries to infuse layers into his lyrics, so on the surface anyone can move along to a fairly straight-ahead rock song. Deeper "treasures" lie at or below the surface for those looking for a little more challenge. "When I first started, I was embarrassed to talk about my songs meaning, though that changed once my wife told me that she thought all the songs were about her!" He had to set that record straight, as "they are mostly about my own self loathing nature and the weight of being 39." "Shit gets pretty real when you're juggling this much." He compares his life to running a small empire.

What does Arneson hope to get out of this? "I want to get it out, like most artists." "I also want people my age to have someone they can relate to," he gets serious for a moment, "we arguably have more to write about than your average angsty 20 year old, and our generation is largely looked over as the creative juggernaut that we are."

"Also, I really like smoking weed in the Barn and recording music," he smirks, sarcastically (almost everything that comes out of his mouth is sarcastic, a trait some find difficult to deal with) "even if no one ever liked a single lick, I'd likely still be out here."

His new album 'MidLifeCrisis' is being released August 17th, and Arneson will be doing a series of "live from the Barn" concerts via various social media platforms to celebrate.
