Wood Heart by Listener

I had never heard of the band Listener, but came across their song shared on Google+. I had to listen to it three times, even though I was dying to go to sleep, because it is so creative and so lyrically genius. It is different, creative, touching, inspiring, dark and spiritual all in a couple minutes. I think it is some amazing work. Check out the song let me hear your thoughts. Clever!

Viewers And Feedback

Though I've had very few people offer me feedback after watching my latest video it's extremely exciting to chat with those few who do comment. I love to connect to others through music. I realize I am far from professional so my audience is small and my videos are not top quality but it's part of the journey and I'm loving it. I hope we can continue to stay in touch. If you're new welcome. I look forward to getting to know you. Thanks again to all those listeners out there.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who has visited, listened, watched commented and more. I appreciate the support. I know I'm new to the music world and I have a lot to learn and grow so I'm so grateful for the support here and now.

I kind of try to live my life thinking that those who win are the ones that try. Not necessarily the most naturally gifted or best situated but the ones who want it and go for it. So I'm putting it out there even though it's not perfect and so far I've received positive feedback. Thanks again.

A Summer's Day In Late November

Being a parent is so amazing. I actually wrote this song when my wife was pregnant with our first child but I had no idea that life would be so joyful being a parent. We now have two kids and I love absolutely love it.

I've struggled to title the song so who knows if this one will stick but for now I call it A Summer's Day In Late November because my son was born in November so every November we get to celebrate that little man and it brings the sunshine down.

I hope you enjoy the song.

Voice Lessons For Everyone?

I've been playing guitar for quite a few years and for many of those years I was too shy or embarrassed to sing, and even when I did sing it was usually punk rock since I was a teenager when Blink 182, Green Day and many others were at the top of their game. Thus my voice training and technique are awful. Over the last couple years I've started singing more and thanks to a few bands such as Matchbox20/Rob Thomas, Chris Daughtry, Thirty Seconds To Mars, and others I've changed some of my techniques but I still don't have good technique or skill.

I've looked at a fair amount of YouTube videos about voice coaching and technique. I'm sure I need lessons but I have such a hard time paying someone good money to listen to me make stupid sounds and tell me how it's supposed to feel and sound. Plus it kind of seems like they all want me to sing like a theater actor. Don't get me wrong I love that kind of music to in fact the song Bring Him Home from Le Mes is one of my all time favorites, but that's not my preferred type of music to create and sing myself.

Somebody help me out, help me get past this block, because otherwise I'm going to keep creating YouTube videos that have poor singing. Let me hear your thoughts and experiences.

Fire And Ice

This is a song about my lady, but it's a song that shows a little of both extremes. She's so fun to be with, she's got some sass of her own, she frequently has the kindest words and I've seen the sharp tongue she's equipped with a time or two. I think she's physically so beautiful and has the kindest heart. I've seen her get upset and she's not one to back down. I love the strength inside of her.

I apologize for the poor quality of the video. I didn't have my computer and I was excited to lay something down so I used my phone. I have since added some lyrics and started recording it with multiple instruments. It's taking me some time but I will get it uploaded soon enough. Thanks for reading, listening and watching. I hope you enjoy Fire And Ice. I would love to hear your feedback.

No Big Deal

We've been on the hunt for a house and it causes me to think about how blessed I am in so many ways. The thought occurred to me that if I make some big deal or miss some big deal it's really no big deal to me because my joy isn't caught in financial or worldly possessions anyway.

It kind of goes along with a quote I've heard before "Don't sweat the small stuff, it's all small stuff." I think that's talking about worldly things, not so much our emotional and physical health.

He Sees You Now

This song was one of those that just came out as soon as I started playing. It was like I hit a couple chords on my guitar and in one train of thought an entire verse and chorus came flowing out. It's a meaningful song to me because it talks about the peace that comes shining through after or during a time of trial. We all go through the ups and downs of life and sometimes it feels like each of us is completely alone walking this globe surrounded by a bunch of acquaintances and strangers who don't understand and seemingly don't care to. Then for one reason or another the light comes through, perspective changes, positive emotion overcomes the clouded thought and it's like God sees your struggle. He lifts you above your own effort and the joys of life become visible again.
