days since gone

I miss my 420 square foot apartment, my 19 inch tv screen, no cable,

I miss singing to my kitchen, which to me, was like singing to a sold out crowd at the Verizon Wireless amphitheater.

I miss the 90+ heat. A humid heat that fogs up the windows at night, falling asleep to the sound of my air conditioner under a mountain of blankets.

I miss the street lights I was once so familiar with. I knew every inch of that town, and loved each one.

I miss the roller-coasters, the kettle corn, elephant ears, the bright lights and glow-necklaces. The sound of children being truly happy.

I miss Fellows lake, cooking hot dogs with sticks, falling asleep next to a fire.

I miss my job as an overnight janitor, my empty bank account, the smile in my soul.

Maybe someday, I'll play to a sold out amphitheater, and as I look out at the crowd, the only thing I will see are a fridge, old stainless steel sink, and some worn out cabinets.

Live Shows

I have played some live shows with the saxaphone player and they have gone really well. The owner of one of the coolest clubs in the Seattle area is going to post one of our performances on YouTube, so I will link to that when it is available. He also wants us to showcase there sometime in August, but we'll see. There are alot of songs I want to write before then so hopefully I can get them done, and we are starting to concentrate on finding a drummer, bass player, and maybe piano.

The link to the lead work I did with Kendal S.(singer/songwriter) is not up yet as she is on vacation, but I will post it when it becomes available.
