This Week’s Video Post #5

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Today I saw a great band play live right in front of my face. Literally it was in front of my face because I was sitting in the front row at the Apple Store SoHo as Dr. Dog blew up a computer store. Playing a retail store is always weird no matter how you slice it, as I discovered over the past year and a half touring Apple Stores across the country. Still, their energy was inspiring and made me want to rock out with a band again… think I will as a matter of fact. However, for this week’s video post a duet will have to do. This is from my recent trip to Chicago when I stopped by the well known recording studio Chicago Recording Company and shot this live video with a old friend from Texas. Here is the first sneak peek into the upcoming album with a new song. Hope you enjoy!
Stay tuned…

Up the west coast…

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

As I watch MTV I realize that it is quite possible I am out of touch with reality… tv that is. Are these programs real or are they written? I can’t tell and I am not sure which is worse. Some guy in this show is afraid to move out of his mom’s house. He’s 31. Now life has him doubting that he will reach his full potential if he stays. He just can’t seem to get off the tittie. In other news, I recently discovered that driving up the west coast is gorgeous. I stopped in San Luis Obispo and played at the Apple Store there. I then proceeded to play beer pong for the first time in my life. Great little town.

After a cozy night at Vagabond Inn and a grand slam breakfast later, I found myself in Portland, OR. I met up with Ian Axel and Allie Moss to play the Apple Store in Bridgeport Village. While I was there I had some amazing home cooked breakfast, drank a little, and enjoyed the good people of Portland. Life. Breathing. Adaptation. good stuff

In closing, I’d like to add that per the advise of good friends I have songs from the Robert Plant & Alison Krauss album “Raising Sand” stuck in my head. Why am I slowing down in my musical preferences lately? Seriously, it’s worrying me that I’m preferring slow country these days. Someone kick me in the nuts and make me rock please… but not too hard.
