I hear they are out of school up in NC. Not the case here in ATL but that won’t stop me from posting my song “Snow Day”!! Thanks for listening!
Made it back to the ATL in one piece and figured I’d post another song to celebrate. I’m a little late on the timing of this one but I figured it would set the mood for the evening, looking out at the snow wherever you are. I wrote a song similar to this in Cone dorm at App. State back in the day and this is my re-imagined version where I tried to recapture that melancholy feeling of college life and it’s ever changing challenges. Little did I know real life after college only proves to be way more challenging. But it can be fun if you let it. Enjoy the snow!!
I hear the weather’s bad up in NC and the kids are out of school. Here’s my anthem to that wonderful feeling of having the day off because of snow. Thanks for listening!

I have made it a month! 31 songs in 31 days. It’s interesting to see the trends I’ve had.
I wrote songs in 17 different major and minor keys
9 out of 31 of the songs were slow. In the first few weeks I wrote a bunch of slow songs before getting into dance mode in the late part of the month.
There’s three or four stinkers in there I’ll admit, but I look at each song at least as a learning experience.
There’s actually about 8 or 9 really good ones which is encouraging. “Snow Day”, “Sunday Afternoon Blues”, “Scratches in the Woodgrain”, “Glass Pack Mufflers & Overhead Cams” (super huge), “Heavy Metal Nice Guy”, “Hot Cold & Out of Control”, “Country Boy Funk in the City” are some of the best.
Although my personal favorite is still “The Sweetest Thing is Everything”. What can I say, I love those french horns.
“Snowy Mix of Memories” is a reflection on January and trying to make time move a little slower.
Thanks for listening, 11 months to go!!!!
