Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Festivus, or whatever your spiritual persuasion, I wish you peace and goodwill to you and your families, during this holiday season.
This has been a great year for me and I feel fortunate to keep moving forward, making music and performing. I know in my heart and soul that music is what keeps me centered and moving forward. Music has never let me down and has always been there, through both the good and the bad. To be able to draw from life’s experiences and put it into song is one of the most gratifying experiences I can think of. To be able to do what I’m most passionate about and make a living doing it, is even more rewarding.
As this year comes to a close, I reflect on what I’ve accomplished, as well as what I haven’t gotten around to doing yet. I tend to go through a yearly cycle of setting musical goals: learning more theory, finish writing songs I’ve started years ago, learning more about the technical side of recording, learning more on marketing and selling my music to media,TV and film as well as listening to music forms I may not be familiar with. But when you throw in the daily responsibilities of running a household and supporting a family, those priorities often get rearranged.
As I look towards 2016 I want to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who not only comes to my live shows, but also to the internet community, worldwide, that has reached out and expressed their thanks as to how my music has made a difference in their lives.
My bucket list for this year…not necessarily in order: Record a new solo-guitar CD as well as a singer/songwriter CD, learn piano, write/learn more harp guitar songs and get out to see more of my fellow performers play, on my nights off. Most importantly, say thank you, every morning, to the universe for this wonderful ride.
Peace, Love and Altered Tunings,
