Wow! Just finished working with San Francisco friends Robyn and Cynthia who were doing backing vocals up in the chamber room. So fun, I got tingles. We filmed some of it so you'll get to see putting those vocal together in a future podcast.
Here's a little matter that's been on my mind that may seem like it's a disconnect to all of you dear ones. I don't seem to be able to talk very seriously, very often about the music I make. That's true. In fact, I don't have much ability to talk about the words in my songs with any words other than the words I used. The reason is I feel like that dilutes it for me. The song is how I feel. The song is what I have to say about it. The experience of hearing it is the point. So I'm not being evasive, I'm just keeping it real. It's not that I take it lightly, quite the opposite. Music goes so deep for me I don't know how to talk about it.
Speaking of real, we're about to set off on Radio 3EB. I remember when I was a little kid listening to late night college radio. It let me know there was a whole nother world out there, unstifled, exotic, and fresh, and I could get a piece of it by listening in. That's what we want to create with Radio 3EB. I think we've almost got the kinks out and are about ready to launch it. There's no market research or payola. There's just us sharing music. Ours and music we love. I wanna do all kinds of things with it, and I want Brad to pull out his DJ'ing skills and make us some mixes. And I think you should bug his ass relentlessly about it right now! Oh yea, the song we were listening to to reference the vibe for backing vocals today was Tumbling Dice, by The Rolling Stones. You should check it out. I pretty much only like new music. I'm solely about forward not backward, but I do love that song. We want to include you in requests and call in's as well.
