Jan 18th “Daytime Worker Honky Tonk Nighttime Singer”

Big day on the recycling boat today and a trip to the dentist to boot.   Dad and I had a good time stuffing cardboard into every crevasse of the truck.

Today’s song is the first thing that popped out when I sat down in the studio today.   I broke my good acoustic back out after confining it to a dark place to get some moisture back in it’s wood.

“Daytime Worker” is also the first blues style song I’ve done in this endeavor.  I’ve purposely not written much blues for this because it can be perceived as the easy way out.  Mainly, however, I prefer to jump around musical genres to keep things interesting.

You never know, like the song says “one of these days, I’m gonna be an overnight sensation”.

Jan 14th “Our Love Will Show the Way”

Two weeks in already and fourteen new songs.   There’s definitely been ups and downs in the songwriting.

As to be expected with my work and travel schedule.   There’s several good ones like “Snow Day”,  “Sunday Afternoon Blues”, “Sleeping Sweetly” and my favorite “The Sweetest Thing Is Everything”.   Alright back to work.  50 weeks to go!

Today’s song is my lullaby tribute to love.   Have  a great day!
