Where do people find the time to blog as often as they do? When I first started this thing, I made a promise to myself that I would at least attempt at posting a blog once a week. Well, you can see how much I think of my own promises.
I haven’t posted a blog since April. I was still in Shanghai!
Adjusting to life back in the states has been challenging. I’ve been able to play lots of music this summer, which has been good. I’ve spent lots of time back in Boston with family and friends, and for that I am grateful.
But I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t miss the pace and energy of Shanghai, not to mention all of the wonderful people I met there. If things go according to plan, I will be back in China one day in the not too distant future. You can bet on that!
I’ve gone through a couple of waves of inspiration in the past several months, penning a number of new tunes that I can’t wait to start rehearsing with the band! I’ve also been doing some collaborating with a friend of mine who is a very talented vocalist on what promises to be a very exciting project, more to come about that soon.
As I gain momentum in preparing for the fall season, I am recommitting myself to this blog. I am going to make more of an effort to post something on a weekly basis, even if its just a brief statement to catch you all up on what I have forthcoming.
On that note, the band and I will be returning to Wicked Willy’s on Saturday September 15th for more funk and good times. I hope to see you all there!
