It’s funny how life looks in retrospect. You never really know what’s happening in the moment and the more you try to control it, the less fun it becomes and in a lot of ways, that was my reality. This past year has been a weird and wild time for me, musically. I’m sure you’ve noticed that I haven’t been focusing on developing my own music and have been concentrating on doing different types of shows to broaden my skill set as a musician. Summer is always a funny time, too. A slew of shows that normally aren’t around show up and puts me in a different mindset. For example, the San Diego Fair is here again and I will be playing my first band show since the last fair on June 30 at 3:30pm on the Paddock Stage! It got me listening to some of our band recordings from Lestat’s earlier today and thought I’d share one since I don’t think many band recordings of my music exist on the internet.
Just reliving that time got me all misty-eyed and made me wish I could make music forever and ever with my band. So I started wondering why that wasn’t the case. When I first started playing music, that was the ultimate goal: to play music for people who wanted to hear it. Thankfully, that hasn’t changed. However, life around me has changed and in aspiring towards my musical and personal goals, I’ve had to adapt to life as much as I can.
I know I’m rambling, but what it really comes down to is that I’m still here to make music and will continue to do that however I can, be it with a band, with an acoustic guitar, or whatever. As always, thank you for being you and supporting me as you do. I will see you soon!
