Writer of songs and stories. Rider of waves and wind.
Together, Captain Marc Borde, Ryan Beard, and Blake Plesek formed a three-man band called “The Crew,” and recorded an album of orignal music inside the “Alyzarian,” a 26-foot Pearson sloop. They then went on a one-of-a-kind sailboat tour of the Texas gulf coast to support the album, playing 33 shows in 38 days using only bicycles and the sailboat for transportation. The book, designed and published by Texas journalist John Ennis is the first in a series of Kamikaze Tactics books, shares The Crew’s epic voyage filled with adventure on the high seas. This book takes a cutting-edge approach to story-telling by introducing a new “high-tech” type of book with downloadable music (The Crew’s album recorded on the sailboat and additional songs from Hold Fast Fables, Mama Tried, Shark Attack and Casette Tape), interactive QR Codes linking to additional content online including videos, photo galleries and much more. A Guitar Strings and Sailboat Things iPhone/iPad app is also under development.
