An Emotional Wreck & Dinner On The Street

Today should've been a great day full of laughs and sunlight. The latter was true, the former, not so much.

How does this happen? I've spent a lot of time working on the new album. I'm scared because once again I'm laying my heart and art out on the line and it's just tough. I don't want a pity party, it's just weird.

My new baby is almost ready to come home to me. I’m really excited about getting to hear her and maybe play her on the new album. She might not be studio worthy yet, she couldn’t have the sound yet of Jania, the one that I’ve been playing almost non-stop for 5 years since I won the national title. She’s got a sound all her own. Russell made sure that I got exactly what I wanted and we built her from the ground up. I was there in December to pick out woods and colors and I designed a special inlay that has…
