Every day, every gig, I am absolutely blown away by the amount of support we've been given from (not only our friends) but from complete strangers. I'm talking about people who just happened to be at the venue we were playing at, that took a moment to turn around, see what we're doing, listen, receive and decide "I am going to support these guys." That is what humbles me to the point of embarrassment. How can I, even for a second, think negatively?
It was a really cool experience. Just get up there, don't think, and do what you know how to do best. No nervousness just music. It was great.
Later, that same night after that gig, I went down to Salt Lake City and played a small venue where about 10 people came out and bought a ticket. Looking back, those 10 people who bought tickets, meant more to me.
Every year I get to come back to this special place and play with some of my favorite friends/musicians. This last time, I got to play a few songs with my favorite band Marinade. I've always dreamed about being in a band. At the moment, it's just not practical with mine and Katie's lifestyle. But, maybe one day it will manifest itself. Check out this video of my song "Kia Ora" from Snowbasin.
I feel really good about this new album. I've been incorporating them a lot at the shows.
I'm also considering having a few more 'guests' on this album as a way to really create what I am hearing in my head.
However, if I get my NZ visa approved we'll be touring out there until the spring.
I have a few things cooking on the burner right now and I don't know how it will all go down. No matter what I am confident that things will happen as they are supposed to.
