In 3 days I will be starting the long process of a new album cycle. All of my thoughts, fears, and dreams are ready to be exposed again in tiny stories set to music that I have written with my friends. There is always a feeling of sheer terror when going into a studio with someone you hardly know, and really having no idea how your songs are going to turn out. Every now and then you have to shake things up, and try a new process, and let someone else in. For the next 6 weeks, I will be living out of a suitcase in Nashville, searching for inspiration to turn ideas in my head into realities for your ears. When you swing for the fences, you can strike out…but that’s not why you swing. You swing to hear the crack of the bat, and watch the arch of the ball as it climbs higher and higher, until it eventually flies out of the park. Eventually that ball is going to crash back down to Earth, and after you have rounded the bases, it will be time to swing again.
It is officially time to swing again.
And even though I hate baseball, I am ready to step up to the plate.
You can read my thoughts throughout this process right here.
Don’t be scared.
It’s just music.
