Hello friend! I hope this message finds you in good spirits. This is my first blog post on NEW BLOG blog on my site. This is one of many posts.
I’m going to approach this first one as if we are meeting for the first time. So, even if you do know me, humor me here! Haha! I’ll be posting later this week about what I’ve been up to as an artist over the few past years, but right now I want to strictly talk to you about my life’s mission: to write music that makes me feel happy. Maybe that’s an overly simple way to explain it, but it’s the truth. I write songs that I want to hear and in turn I hope that when I play those songs, other people will feel as happy as I do sharing them. My music career has always had a lot more meaning to me than just the literal music, songs, and songwriting. I really want to be a force for good in the world using my shows and online presence to create a community of friends/fans who want to promote kindness…and most of all have a kickass fun time.
I’ve been at this (as some people in my life call it) “music thing” for a couple of decades now. I’ve had minor successes and a few major ones that make my heart sing just reminiscing about them. A lot of years have gone by since some of those milestones, and a lot of good ideas I’ve had were left stranded within pages of journals and text documents. Truth be told, I feel like I’m starting from ground zero, not having released music in so many years. BUT with this post, I’m declaring to the world (or anyone who is listening) that I’m RECHARGED AND READY TO GO. I’ve spent the past 6 months trying to revamp my mindset in how I approach my music career. I’ve read books, taken online courses, listened to podcasts, read all the latest blogs, learned a ton of geeky techie skills in order to help me implement a plan of attack to get me back into the game….with a BANG! Haha! And I’ve never ever ever ever stopped believing in my music and my message.
So, this is it….this is the new beginning. I aspire to add honest-to-goodness value to your life with my music in tandem with my other heart-fulfilling projects. And if you don’t know me and you’re still reading this…holy crap, you’re awesome….OH and also forget everything I said in the third paragraph. Hahaha! Ok, so yea…WELCOME to my new journey. Enjoy the ride with me. It’s gonna be fun and will most likely include a handful of Home Alone references.
Hoooooooray!!! Have the best day!!!!
Welcome back! I am excitied to hear what’s to come! Some times we need the hiatus to refocus and revamp, but never stop doing what we love.
Mark! This is such a delayed response. I never got the notification that you commented. I have to get a better system. Haha! Thank you so much for the encouraging words. I’m working everyday to make things happen for my music career.
