July 3rd “Angel or Shooting Star”

It’s been nice getting back in the studio.  I used to worry that I wouldn’t be able to write the songs.   Tonight I realized that that thought never enters my mind now.   I usually have several competing thoughts playing out to determine which direction I’m gonna go musically each day.   I basically just try not to get in the way and amazingly whatever happens is usually what happens.   (I smell a song in that last line).

Jan 29 “Driving in Two Directions”

Over a foot of nice fluffy snow and a whole weekend to be snowed in.  It’s nice to look out of the studio window and see it hanging from all of the trees outside.  And I think it gave me a good photo to use as the album cover for January’s songs.

I will be putting out a cd every month with all of the songs.  Look for the first one in about three weeks.  I can’t believe it’s been 29 days already.

Anyway I wrote and recorded music to four songs today and so far have managed to put words to just this one.I’m also doing the guitar parts for our “Follow the Feeling” album too, so I’ve been switching back in forth between the two.

“Driving in two Directions” is kind of an analogy comparing driving to healthy relationships.  The character in the song seems to always drive but never actually get there.  I coaxed Adair into playing the keyboard parts on this one too.         Thanks for listening!!
