There are a few different concepts I have been pondering, as of late.
One of my favorite bands, Thrice, just released their new album, “Palms.” After listening to the whole record from beginning to finish, I found my favorite song, “The Dark.” I always hope that there will be at least one that sticks out to me.

It’s amazing all the different hats you wear when you are a musician. I like to devote my undivided attention to one project at a time, however life doesn’t always allow for such simplicity.
