You know, sometimes, I have to go out and listen to some live music played by some friends, to get a recharge, a reminder of why I am on this planet. Last night was one of those nights. Thankfully, I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have a multitude of choices, so last night I caught a songwriter's circle at a local venue (The Sleeping Lady : Danny Click, Tracy Blackman, Bonnie Hayes - with Don Bassey.) It was a nice reminder of why I sing and write songs: to help people get in touch with their emotions and make a human connection. I don't need no stinkin' TV show. Who wants to be owned by a corporation when my music is already spreading by word of mouth?
If you live nearby, do yourself a favor and make your reservation by calling 415-899-9600
for our upcoming show at the Southern Pacific Smokehouse - I'm really fired up after that audition for NBC's "The Voice." - Pretty soon I'm going back into hermit writing mode and I'm not coming out until I have enough original songs to make another album- worthy of your ears and attention. (btw: I've heard the ribs are really yummy.)
