Not a mission statement, but a mission
I make music and I write words. Until recently, I said I wasn’t looking for an audience. I think that was honest for a while but I don’t think so any longer.
I enjoy writing, making music, and performing which is why I continue to do them. I will continue to say that I only try to please my biggest and only fan, myself, but now things are changing. In the past few weeks, I realize I’ve finally jumped the fence back into the public realm. I never really left, but I didn’t have the time to focus on it or take it very seriously. After playing close to a full set solo recently, I realized I was previewing a show I had been putting together in my head for a while.
I got more shows bouncing around my head and, moreover, I have that dangerous quality which strikes fear in the heart of authority figures everywhere: I have ideas.
I’m not changing my essential perspective that I do this for me and if anybody wants to come along for the ride, all aboard. However, one is either on the bus or not on the bus and riding is a fully voluntary activity. Join me and we’ll probably have a good time. I’m going to have a good time regardless of who comes along because, darn it, I like me.
Ultimately, I’m doing more stuff and I’m going to be more public about it. As always, I take requests but I only take them seriously when they are written on large denomination US currency.
