There's been lots going on here the past few months. New songwriting, shows at rock climbing gyms, outdoor adventures, and good times with friends and family. Here is a little taste of the fun. To answer your questions about the video. Yes, I backpacked a guitar down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Yes, and back up to the top. Yes, it was worth it. The video is sped up to make me sound like the chipmunks. Why? Well I guess I thought it was much funnier that way. If it's your birthday, this song is dedicated to you. :) Talk to you soon!
So I have been on a big kick lately, listening to the album "Lungs" from Florence and The Machine. What an awesome album. Here is a link to one of my favorite songs from the album, "Cosmic Love". Also getting into the Brandon Boyd solo effort, The Wild Trapeze and the new single "Runaway Train". Other solo efforts from Killers front man Brandon Flowers include the song "Crossfire". I like that tune as well. Let's see, other great stuff is the new Ray Lamontagne album, although I haven't listened to it through yet, it sounds pretty solid. More updates to come soon, including *gasp* the Balance EP released on itunes. For now, check some pictures from the last rock climbing session at Mount Woodson, my buddy Scott doing some climbing, and a sunset surf session at campgrounds in Carlsbad.
So, I apologize I have been away for a while. There has been a bunch of things going on recently. The dust stirred from the balance of the work-life and the musician-life has yet to settle, although I am working on it. I was able to play an Open Mic in Carlsbad, CA (my new current residence) at a cool Irish pub called O'Sullivan's. That was a good time. I've been writing a lot recently, mostly instrumental, however some songs are coming together lyrically as well. I'm also still continuing work on the acoustic songs, I promise they will be ready soon, digital artwork and all. In the meantime, I am trying to get some adventure time around the southern California area. The most recent hike was Torrey Pines. June gloom was in full effect, however it was still a fun time. Pretty cool views for sure. All for now. Take care.
Pursuing passions and appreciating the joys and blessings of life. I have been given so much, I'd like to use music as an avenue to give back.
