It’s hard to walk off the stage when you feel like you haven’t done the best you can. For example. Last night, I forgot a few words to some songs. Tonight, we couldn’t get the loop station to work properly. Some nights nothing works out. When Murphy’s Law becomes your norm at shows, maybe it’s time to re-evaluate what you’re doing and try to fix it.
I feel like I’ve been going through so much emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. During the course of making this album, I’ve meet friends, and lost some, Fell in and out of love, and been sicker than I can remember. Even know, I’ve been fighting a throat thing for over a week. ::Sigh::
I know that everything is going to be okay. I know that life is going to sort itself out. I know that I get down after the adrenaline rush that goes on during a show, and that for the day after the show, I’m usually in a haze/funk, but how do I break this cycle? How do I put it all on stage and leave it there?
Well, I don’t know that I can answer these questions tonight. Or even if any of this makes sense. But I do know a few things. I love making music. I love performing. I love being inspired by people. I just need to find a cure for the show hangovers.
Here’s something that may cheer me up. Have you seen this video Rob, B Willing James, and I did the other day? It’s called, “I’mma Be Alrite”. I don’t care that it’s all misspelled. It’s just fun. I hope you like it, and spread it around!
Playing a show in LA on Monday at Room 5. Hope you can make it out!
