The other day my family and I took a mini vacation to get away from the cold with what we had hoped to be sunny Savannah, GA. We were so excited because, of course we have been working extremely hard on our new album. We didn’t know what to expect, but one thing was sure, nothing but warm clothes. Well, so I thought, the first day we arrived it was super cold, it was like we had not left. The wind chill was ridiculous.
Then the next day we went back, fishing and crabbing, I mean so we could have food to eat. Yes, our meal was what we caught. We all were anxious about catching something. As I sat there waiting for a fish, crab something to bite. I thought, how does fishing compare to making music? Well, after a long day and a few catches, not all by myself, with everyone’s input. I came up with a few things.
The weather conditions and feel of a song can change, so I have to remember it’s an art.
Learning to fish has technique, like learning to play instruments.
Like fishing, music takes patience, sometimes all day long and I would find the right sound I want and sometimes when I think I had it (or like I felt a fish bite) well a pull in a direction could lose the feel or what is there.
It takes a lot of different elements, just like music where you need several different sounds, writing, and mix, you need the right rod, hook, bait, and a strong line.
But in the end the rewards are great; in fishing we had a meal like no other, and in music – when you have a great song or songs, as we do on our new album Celestial. Which by the way we really can’t wait for you all to hear it.
Remember to stay connected for our new album and let me know what you think? When you take vacations do you think about your passions? What lessons do you learn? [powr-social-media-icons id=ca6a4cfe_1492497274200]
