Just made a pot of coffee so I can stay up until the sun rises building my set lists for when I start playing live next week. I think I’ll record several videos for my YouTube channel while I’m doing this. Do any of you have a favorite song you want me to make a video of?
Pretty damn stoked about the song I’m going to post for you all in a bit. It’s called “Poppy”—the flower, not your grandpa.
I write songs
because a part of me believes they are spells.
I wring every ounce of magic I can
from notes and the spaces between them.
I use sound waves to shine a light
on life’s dark places.
I do not know what I’m searching for with sound,
but I will when I find it.
Singing is the voice’s gentle way of making love;
it reaches out with trembling notes until it finds someone to touch.
