“What are you thinking about?” I get this question often, and my only answer to it is: music, the only thing I ever think about. Listening to it, playing it, writing it. The art of making music is more than just a big part of my life but it is my entire life…

Some Good News…

I DID IT! I FINALLY DID IT!!!

For the past three months I had severe musician’s block; I hadn’t written so much as one note since June. But last Thursday I sat down at my keyboard, and all of a sudden my hands knew exactly where to go and exactly what to do. I had the melody, I had the chords, I had the structure. Don’t ask me where that all was three months ago, but it doesn’t matter now because: I HAVE A NEW SONG!!!!!!!!!!

All I have left to do is the lyrics. Now this is the trickiest part. I have an idea in mind, I have some visions. I can picture green fields in spring. I can feel warm breeze on my skin. And I sense someone is leaving somewhere, leaving something behind. There’s two people driving away in a car. I have plenty of ideas; the issue is synthesizing them all into one cohesive, rhyming poem that matches the music.

I can see bits and piece of words floating around in my mind, and I can see fragmented scenes and colors trying to come together, but there’s mothing concrete enough to work with yet.

I don’t know, but I’ll let you have a listen so you can decide what you would make the song about:
