My life is better when:
- I get the music (I hear) written. Get what I hear in my head recorded so that it can be played and heard.
- I get the music (I’ve written) out of my living room. Get it out “there” where others can hear it, too.
These jobs require different skill sets and I would argue one is a right brain task and the other is left brain work. For the past several weeks, I’ve been in Texas. Writing. Re-writing. Working on new songs. Now it’s time to go to LA and work them up with my band.

This is my work. Takes time and attention to detail. Sweat and inspiration. It is not a job. It is not an occupation. It is a vocation. It is the closest thing I know to what is commonly mentioned as… a calling.
