Loops, Blues, and Friends

2 03 2010

This year has been eye opening to me so far. I’ve had some events lately in my life that have changed the way I look at my life. Because of this shift in my thinking a lot has changed in the direction I want to take my music, and I’ve been finding that I’m enjoying revisiting my roots in blues music more. I’ve been becoming a regular at a local blues jam every Monday night. It feels great to go and jam out of some of the greats like Robert Johnson, Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Muddy Waters, and of course B.B. King (who is the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place). If you’ve seen me play at the last couple of shows I’ve done you know it’s currently just me and a loop pedal. I feel like it really makes me hone my skills a bit better, cause since it is just me, I don’t have the option of messing up on stage, and relying on a band to help cover up the mistake. It’s exhilarating. I have been really liking the way that I’m performing with this setup. It makes me feel closer to the audience, and doesn’t give me anything to hide behind. It’s like there’s strength in my vulnerability. I am in the course of getting a license to be a street performer as well, so I look forward to running in to some of you on the mean streets of SLC. And keep in mind, I am available for any event where you might need some good entertainment. Just respond back to this e-mail if you are interested, and we’ll work something out! I hope you will be able to make it out to one of my upcoming shows (for instance this Thursday at Club Elevate) so that we can chat and enjoy great nights with great friends! Thank you all for your amazing support. It has, and always will mean the world to me.

Dude! Gotta love the blues man! Huge fan of Muddy and Robert Johnson (really love Clapton’s two tributes to the man).

Nice man!
