Due to popular demand, actually it was just one request, I have decided to continue with my somewhat witty and informative blog posts. Thanks Bob Thompson for reading these.
Another year has dissolved into the rear view mirror, and we've been given the opportunity to start anew. Now if we can just keep on track and manage to avoid the disasters that lurk around every corner.
My main goal for the year is to finish the CD I've been crafting for way to long. I may make it into the Guinness record book for longest recording project of the digital age, apparently my strength lies in my ability to procrastinate. I can see some real progress now and have lined up some great musicians to flesh out the arrangements. My sincere hope is that I have this project completed by the spring and available for the Florida Folk Festival in May.
In other news, I have once again been selected as a finalist in The South Florida Folk Festival Songwriting Competition. I'm really not one for competing in things, the stress of it pushes me way out of my comfort zone. I'm always amazed when I see other performers get on stage for these type things and revel in the glory of the moment. Meanwhile, I'm off stage trying to figure out how I'm going to get through it without losing my mind. My ego gene was not fully developed in the womb, and the space was filled in with an insecurity gene. I'm hoping someday that gene therapy will alleviate this condition, it will be to late for me, but I'm sure future generations will benefit from my sacfrifice. So Jan. 16 & 17, send me some good vibes. Maybe next month I'll give a blow by blow account of the event.
In closing the inaugural 2016 blog post, I'd just like to wish everyone a very happy new year, and hope that everything goes better than you expect. Thanks for hanging out with me!
