Today’s song is “Alright” by B Willing James, Rob Deez and myself.
Here’s what it started as:
And here’s what it is now:
And here’s how it all happened. B and I were discussing life and how broke we were like usual, and the idea was said, “I’m only one guitar away from being homeless.” we both laughed and the song started forming from there.
After the song was pretty much done, I looked at B and told him, “We need Deez to put a verse in here.” B had to bounce and Deez came over a few hours later.
Here’s how Deez recalls the night:
“So there I was, waist deep in a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked ice cream, trying to figure out what to do with my life, when all of a sudden I heard a familiar sound. My phone was ringing. I looked at the caller ID and my prayers were answered with that one magic word we all know and love. “Damigo”. The next few hours of my life were a whirlwind of chord progressions, napkins, online dating website references, chips, and Josh Damigo’s MacBook. I left Josh’s home a different man. A man with a sense of purpose. A man who knows that at the end of the day, no matter what’s going on in life, everything’s gonna be alright, gonna be ok.
Then I hit send on my iPhone and got ready to watch an advanced screening of The Dark Knight Rises. On July 19th 2012. The day the world found out that Fred Willard got caught pulling a Peewee Herman.”
I am not exaggerating when I say that Deez listened to the song once. One stinking time. Grabbed a pen and literally wrote his spot in 5 minutes. (He’s so disgustingly talented…) afterwards we recorded it, my computer crashed, and we recorded it again and made the video. I swear that I love these guys so much and I’m so glad this song made it on the album, as it’s the youngest track on the cd.
