Perhaps a year ago I had a dream in which I was telling some friends that I was the “family archivist.” And when I awoke I thought, “that’s ridiculous, I’m not the family archivist!” But you know how I am with dreams… I listen. My mother had always wanted me to work on our family […]
Yes – Yes – Yes! The dreams, songs, & visions are back – and it’s like reuniting with old friends. Life is good; melodies and lyrics are flowing, and spring equinox is almost here. I’ve been nurturing some heirloom tomato plants, peppers and milkweed to transplant out in the garden with the weather gets warmer; […]
..For an entirely different reason than first intended. And now it makes sense. Usually I don’t tell many personal stories. I’m just not one of those people whose facebook feed shows a bunch of photos of my latest meals or family, or personal posts about everyday life. But I want to share something that happened […]
I love this because it reminds me again: some of you are those people.
Do you want to know who I am, or just what I’ve done? Who are YOU? Is it all about the roles we play? WFT?!? Here we are, animated stardust, having taken shape as a planet and various lifeforms, and eventually having the ability to stand and look out into the night sky -across space/time, […]
One recent evening, here on the fourth planet from the Sun, I heard a band. As I listened, I was struck by how the vocalist was saying absolutely nothing at all. No, I’m not exaggerating. Just seemingly random empty words and phrases, delivered without soul or passion…and the lyrics truly felt hollow. The music […]
In working/playing in the studio, It’s easy to forget the actual moment of the song’s original beginning. The writing and performing flow together into the production, and it feels as though the song always existed…we just give it a form in which to express itself. DaVinci said his sculpting was to free the form from […]
The song “Arriving” has rarely been performed live yet, and even rarely played in rehearsal, so it’s been a bit nebulous to record. It really needed big harmonies, which we didn’t have in Rock Scarlet, and I’m hoping to add extra background singers with Psychanaut to perform this one live. the song is a bit […]
Some of you have been asking about new songs, and YES! – we are writing/arranging a bunch of new tunes – some of which we’ve started tossing into live shows, such as Seven Wonders. As we play the clubs/bars, we realize that some people want to hear some familiar tunes to dance to, and we’ve […]
Wow, already that time…Autumn Equinox! I’ve been pondering energy and connections the past few days; people connecting in person and over the internet…people who love the music, or enjoyed an article I’ve written, just sending an email or speaking a kind word at a show.
