This was my last show of the summer and it felt like the end of summer as the cooler weather has already started to arrive. I love playing outside and tonight was full of tourists from everywhere. I have been feeling like I’m ready for a bit of a change in my life. I love playing live, but I am a bit tired of all the breaking down my equipment and then loading it into the car, driving to the gig, unloading and then setting up. Playing (this is the part I LOVE). Then breaking my setup down, loading it into the car, driving home, and unloading the next day, unless I have a gig. I’ve been doing this for almost 20 years and I feel like I want to take a bit of a break and get back into the studio more and not have to drive or load and just make music. I will tour again and play live again, but I’m looking forward to some time off to create and capture in the studio.

A mellow evening at a local distillery playing my music. I don’t usually like whiskey, but I had some that was excellent tonight. One large ice cube and fine whiskey in a glass leads to a good attitude for playing music.
