I heard this tune the other day browsing for some new stuff on Spotify and man, I dug up a good one! I must warn you, though, this one is an emotionally powerful, beautifully written and composed piece of work by Jason Isbell and his band. Once it began, I thought, “Ooo, I like the guitar” and “the vocals are smooth, too!”. I almost didn’t want to hear what I was hearing but I couldn’t stop it. After I finished listening to it, I couldn’t even really think straight. My mind raced as I searched for all the meaningful and even neglected memories that had been tucked away between the gyri and sulci of my cerebral cortex. I felt myself somehow emotionally gripping onto these as if I were already losing them. I felt frozen as the next song played. An overwhelming sadness had consumed me. It wasn’t even the sadness of the loss as much as it was the inevitable fact of simply facing reality. The reality that one day I’ll no longer be here and losing the ones that I travel through this journey with. Then, I played it again.
How does it make you feel?? I was trying to wait and post up a ‘weekly favs’ blog but this one was too good to wait.
So, I finally managed to get an Instagram page up for just my music stuff. I’m not sure what 2018 has in store for me just yet but I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one. In the wise words of Joe Dirt, “Life’s a garden, dig it!” Well, I have my garden prepared and lots of goodies planted. With that in mind, I’m hoping to get the chance to share some new stuff and some of my older jams with you guys as I get them recorded or edit clips from live performances.
If this sounds like something you’d like to keep up with, sign up to follow my blog here where I’ll be trying to post weekly with upcoming dates around Atlanta, videos, original music, etc while also sharing a bit more about me and growing up as a musician. If you just want the music and short video clips, then check out the live cover of Clapton’s version of “Nobody knows you” below and follow my Ig. Don’t be afraid to follow both! haha.. Seriously though, if you like this stuff or anything on my page, would like to hear me cover something, or just want to say hi, drop a comment.
I was playing around with the new Sony HDR-MV1 at my gig the other night and cranked out a few cool covers I enjoy doing often. Although I do enjoy ‘time in a bottle,’ this is prob my favorite by Jim Croce. Thanks for listening!
Every since I was a kid I wanted to perform at the Hard Rock Cafe. Well, I was able to finally turn that dream into reality and caught most of it on video. I was treated like king and queen there. Such a nice venue. They actually asked me back the following week but my schedule was already booked. I’ll be making another appearance in the upcoming months of 2015. Be on the lookout for the date if interested in coming out.
