It’s been a long time….again.
I hope that you are all safe and Healthy. We are in strange times. For the past two months, I have been Home. I do not have the Virus, but my Health isn’t that great. I am on Immune Suppressant Meds to treat me. This means I am Immune Compromised.
Many have done online acoustic shows either on FB or Stageit. Many have asked me to do this. I would like to and my plan is to make this happen at some point. I don’t want any of you readers (and listeners) to think that I’m all talk. It’s been a while since I performed in any capacity. It’s weird. It’s surreal.
Late last year I went to Europe and played a few songs at an open mic night. I played 3 songs at a bar/restaurant in Amsterdam. Open mic nights are the same no matter where you go. Some people care and listen, others do not. But it was fun. One of the performers was a Rapper from Maine. One guy was from England. I believe only one of the performers was Dutch. That’s what happens in the big city. If I were in Haarlem or Papendrecht I’m sure there would have been more Dutch musicians. That was the last time I performed. I did give my CD to people during my trip. I hope they enjoy it.
My music has been played all over the World. I wish I could tour. I feel so far away from it all. I know that I’m not the only one. I must prepare. I must be prepared.
Before all of this weirdness, earlier this year, I was in talks to start recording my 2nd release. I was supposed to get together with Joe (The Producer) and Stu (the Drummer) in late March to get the drums mixed and get good drum sounds. My next recording will be 7 songs. I had a few meetings with Joe to go over what I wanted to do.
Now all of this. Some are hiding in there Homes, some are doing the opposite, some are sick, and some are not going to make it. That’s the way it is now. That is the new normal. Will it go back? Not the way we would like it to. What does that mean for the musician? Who knows?
Any musical news I have will go onto this blog as long as I have it.
