(First let me start by saying my best wishes go out to those affected by the fires and i do not mean to detract from the serious damages done by it.)In the midst of forest fires and a blood red sun, I managed to conduct a music video shoot. The smoke billowed into the air and gave the sky the most interesting reddish orange hue. We climbed up a staircase to give us a great vantage point and while up there it really gave me a chance to take in the city. I've been so focused and keeping my head down and working that I haven't gotten a chance to just look around much lately I definitely needed that. I'm really excited to see the footage all edited together. Later that night I went home and two blocks down caution tape was blocking off a street and a man was lying motionless. Helicopters circled for hours and hours, spotlights pierced through windows. I'm still not sure of the full story but my first thought was man I have to get out of this neighborhood.
Then later as I was doing my prison workout( because I don't walk to the gym at night for safety reasons) and I thought to myself maybe this is exactly where I need to be. It's hard, it hurts and it's lonely but I'm really improving my all aspects. Vocals are all recorded for my new songs and I've been pulling all nighters editing them, I'm excited and overwhelmed.
I'm starting to get that hopeful feeling I get when releasing a new project. Although in reality it will probably fade into the void, it's so exciting because there's no limit to its potential. Who knows maybe it will change everything for me. I need to get better about social media and stuff but I would much rather just write here instead of posting selfies and stupid shit like that. Unfortunately as a musician your social media numbers are your blood line and mine are terrible. Also I'm going to be blogging again hard and I do appreciate all of you who read this and help it spread. I'm so excited to start playing live again and I have been planning shows and possibly a tour again, the "Beyond the Plains" campaign starts now!
