So there's our boy . . . there in the middle with the hat. Wow, his band has only been together a year roughly and they just won "Band Of The Year" in our big local entertainment paper City Weekly! They beat out a bunch of other great bands in a play off gig up in Park City a few weeks ago. That is Jackson's wife on his right, Meagan . . . which is cool. They were up at our house last night testing out her new keyboard and we got to jam, which was fun--me and Jack wrote a quick silly song called Cinnamon Clover which we video'd and I hope to be able to post. . . . Al came home and joined in with his Spanish guitar and they played a Fleet Foxes song together, and Isaac was strumming along as well. But back to Westward The Tide--they really are something. Their new album comes out March 15th I believe . . . and it is very impressive. Jackson writes all the songs, lyrics and music. Very proud of him.
A sidenote re this is that I may get a chance myself to do some new music, which I always am craving to do but . . . well . . . survival mode is always there buttin' in. I've had an idea for a type of music I would want to do right now and told Jack about it and he loves the idea, and so, if things work out he wants produce it and play on it using his new skills and contacts, which is awesome. Usually I have had to do everything trying to make something happen and its a nice relief to have some help that way. Of course I would include my other musical boys, Al and Isaac . . . so that it would be a somewhat resurrected Larsen Ice Shelf project. But we shall see. I also pretty much expect that things are going to continue to move quickly for Jack his band and they just might blow up huge and we may just be dog-sittin' their cute Banjo (our granddog) while they are touring the world. . . .
God bless :)
