Yeah, this is no fun. It just sort of dawned on me the other day that I haven’t been writing new material lately. There could be a hundred reasons why I’m as dry as a desert full of nomads; but, I think I know what it is. I think it’s because I’ve been spending so much time playing and learning cover tunes. Playing the resaurant/bar circuit around Waikiki/Honolulu that I’ve been doing, you’re supposed to play a certain percentage of cover tunes; so, I’ve been learning a bunch of tunes that I’ve always kind of dug but never really knew how to play. The problem is now… I haven’t written a new song in about 4 months.
The remedy? Well, ever since my car stereo got jacked when Jess and I lived in downtown Riverside, California, I’ve been especially prolific while driving. I’m hoping that, while I’m on tour this summer, I’ll be able to catch up on all the pent-up angst that has been percolating for the last 6 months or so. This tour, I’ll be playing 6 states and around 15 shows in about 3 weeks. And, here’s the kicker, I’ll be doing all that travel all by my lonesome. So, now when I’m on the road this summer dropping the occasional Tweet and blog update you can think of me driving by myself in the cab of a pickup truck, somewhere across America, singing something (most likely) nonsensical, only slightly melodic and all together really loud. The chances are, that’s exactly what I’ll be doing. And, who knows, it might even turn in to a song.
Peace, hope and love.
