I leave it, I come back and wonder why I ever left my dear New York? Well, for one, the road is a-calling.
Anyway, a while ago I got to revisit the studio where I recorded the last finishing pieces of my first record. It is a wonderful, wonderful studio with lots of wonderful instruments lying around and of course it’s all baked in with atmosphere and history. On my first record Walter Sear was still alive and he played the Theremin on a few tracks, will never forget that. What is so wonderful about that studio as well is that they have a window where you can go stand in between the takes and gaze at the skyline; Mama, at least I made it here...
I had no idea what was going to happen then with anything and I have no idea what is going to happen know. But life is a river so just keep on sailin' I guess?
Back to the story, I got the chance to revisit the studio to record some acoustic tracks from my new album together with my lovely dearest band, again sitting in a circle, facing the unknown. I recorded it on the release week of my album and many circles later I am sitting here writing to you. I've experienced some tremendous things lately, like a sold out summer night at Central Park, a Greek Theatre in Los Angeles but also a snap on the nose that I must take better care of my health cause life is fragile, as we've all learnt the last couple months. Fall is around the corner and my quest is to find the unified field and to work on acceptance and kindness towards myself and others. Being this far into the campaign I also want to take the time to say how very thankful I am that you've embraced my record, it’s going to make me want to do an even braver follow up.
I also want to say to everyone who bumps into me after shows or on the streets when I’m "off-duty", I am sincerely honestly very very shy and don't know what to do of myself when I am not on stage as I never thought I had to face the listeners but could hide behind my work, so forgive me if I come of as rude or aloof, its just that I am very very shy. But know that I am thankful and blessed for having you as my audience, I should probably go on some public speaking course or something.
In the meantime, please check out my iTunes Sessions EP, it’s some tracks from the album, a cover but also a re-take of Hanging High, which I think finally comes into its right place. I hope you get it, like it and love it!!
