Why Music?

It’s been a while…

Maybe too long, maybe not. Who knows?

Beyond a trendy article, or an informative blog post, I wanted to let my head flow and speak about the things that are trapped in it. That have been there for several years without a place to go, rendered mute by my everyday life.

Life! who would have thought that THAT is what was going to get in my way? And not that of breathing, eating, going to the toilet, and having a Social Insurance Number. No, the activities I’ve chosen to use my time, to make money so I can continue doing whatever it is that I am doing… THAT LIFE. Lifestyle, some would say.

Anywho, I digress. THAT life got in the way big time and here I am, rambling about not doing stuff that I’m still not doing, but I’m planning and willing to do. I want to go as far as I can to get that fuel back and be inspired by it, instead of this blandness of getting home from work, playing games, falling asleep, rinse and repeat. Automation. I am not that, I cannot be, I refuse to be that.

Over the next few weeks, months, years, I will be actively getting back into the nit and grit of the music industry. Recording all the unfinished demos, writing painful but emotional lyrics, maybe even writing stuff for other people, recording guitar in someone else’s projects, and so on. What I’m trying to say is that I’m back and willing to put the work to get MY music career back on track. No idea where this will lead me, but it’s the only reason to stay around. At least it is for now.

Stay tuned…
