Dead silence spinning in gray waves, depravity despair, heartbreak. The moment we were running at the bottom of the hill on a roller-coaster from hell. I feel these words described some of last year’s events and I feel that we’ve learned to overcome. We’ve overcome thanks to friends and family, fans, and in the end life is still an amazing and beautiful process of evolution. I am happy to say we survived, thrived and evolved to something amazing from it. In some ways I cannot express how blessed I feel.
I think lately I’ve been in a mindset of evolving. Changing things and adapting them to not only survive but thrive. I believe we live in a world of survival of the fittest. I feel as a band we’ve evolved over the last four months and it has blossomed into something unique that challenges each person to become a better musician and being. For me it has been to become more open minded with my music and allow more creative input from others. Some members of the band would tell you that while the music is not about me ever, behind the closed door of rehearsal there is no such thing as fair in the music. I am a very selfish creator of art, in that I do not typically like to collaborate because I am particular about my way of doing things.
Lately with addition of Jeremy and Derek, I’ve had to evolve. Both of these guys alongside Stu have pushed me I think to a new level of creativity and they are the perfect guys to do it. I’ve found myself enjoying collaboration and learning from these guys. So here’s to evolving and changing your routine, you never know what you might find hidden under that dusty rock you never wanted to touch. Thanks to Derek, Jeremy and Stu for being some of the best guys to work with!
