Sunset Slideshow (and Mexico demo)

I put together a slideshow of sunset photos taken from my phone, and put a recording of ‘Mexico’ as the backing track, enjoy!

Best,

SJ

Quiet Before The Storm

It’s a relatively quiet week on the SJATR  show schedule, but stop by at happy hour for some live tunes at Bernard’s (315 Seneca in downtown Seattle) on Wednesday so I can stay in shape!



I have rehearsals for a bunch of full-band shows coming up, and I’ve been writing some new songs, so it’s not as if I’ll be sitting around playing Mario Kart.

The weather has been beautiful, with endless beautiful sunsets. Enjoy!

Best,

SJ

Beautiful May Day

Tonight’s moonset/sunset was majestic. Gorgeous breeze. And I feel good. A really good type of good.

I also had a fun show at 88 Keys in Pioneer Square, Science! also played and we’re performing together again at 4th Ave Tav in Olympia on Saturday May 10, come check us out!

Oh! I also marched with workers and other progressive activists through downtown Seattle today for some basic rights that most workers in industrialised nations have:

Seattle also announced today that the minimum wage here is going up to $15. It’s a good start. I believe that people who work full time should be able to afford to live without taking food stamps and other poverty subsidies.

We can keep making things better with a little footwork and a lot of singing.

All the best,

SJ

Sunset and The Byrds

I spent my Saturday afternoon doing homework. Learned the last verse to a Gordon Lightfoot cover I’m going to try. Decided what my new song is going to be about, and it’s kind of fun, can’t wait to hear how it ends up. Now listening to The Byrds live records and to the sunset. Fragmenting and running on sentences. But there’s this:

Elliott Bay Sunset

Seattle has some really good musicians, and I’ve met some of the best of them on this trip. It also has some fun venues to play in, venues that actually respect musicians and don’t just use them to do the venue’s marketing for them. I’ve been playing here a bunch and meeting lovely fans of music too. If you’re one of them and you’ve just stumbled on my site, go here for regular updates and say ‘hello!’:

Fortunately for me, Seattle also has some lovely sunsets.

Well, I’m going to go back out now and see what other bits of loveliness are hiding around this city.

Don’t worry dearest Venice, I haven’t forgotten about you! I’ll be back home soon.

Love,

SJ

Last night I played a super fun show at The Crocodile in Seattle, and even ran into a friend from Venice Beach. Small world, good people, and sunsets everywhere.

The other musicians from the show last night, Colin Bradford and Katie Davis, were very talented, and we had a great time. I’ll dig up some links on them soon and will post them later.

Talk to you soon!

Love,

SJ
