Don’t Write Them Down

I’m up early, writing. I remember when I was a kid watching Beatles documentaries and how they would say they didn’t write their songs down because if they couldn’t remember them, then how would the listeners? I just figured that’s the way it’s done, and I also don’t write my tunes down. Except one copy gets sent to the copyright office, of course.

Clive Davis

As some of you know, I love music biographies, and usually I read the stories of musicians, songwriters, producers, et al, but today I switched gears and started the autobiography of Clive Davis, the legendary music business executive. I’ll be done with this in a day or two, do you have any music biography suggestions for me?

On The Road

I spent a few months hitchhiking around Europe. When the whim struck, I’d find a bit of cardboard and write my next destination town on it. Tonight, I’m performing at Ascendant Beer Co in Portland Oregon, 6-8PM, good times guaranteed, please join me!

Plugged Back In

I took a week off from social media, it felt amazing. Folks are always telling me I need to post/interact more to help create a social media presence that will help me sell my music, and they’re right, so now I’m always evaluating everything I’m doing or thinking and wondering if I should share it online. It’s a huge waste of brain time.

After a couple of days away, I noticed my mind became a bit quieter, I was able to focus more on making things rather than thinking of things to type to people. Bliss.

Anyway, that’s my holiday story. I didn’t go someplace tropical and play in the ocean, but it was still a restful vacation. I’m back now, and even though I appreciated my break, it’s super lovely to see you again!

Let’s hang out at a show soon.

Love,

SJ
