NEW MUSIC VIDEO

Hello :) Excited to share that the music video for Ashes, from the new Numbers record is underway. It's such a thrill to connect a song, and it's meaning and inspiration, visually. To see it all unfold is beyond exciting. NO ENERGY LIKE THE CREATIVE ENERGY!

I'll share a little back story about Ashes and what inspired the song... and thus...the video. I'll make it brief :)

While walking in a cemetery one day, something I do often, I was quite moved by the fact that there was a large section which was in a state of disarray. Stones that marked the resting place of peoples loved ones were decaying, broken and some had fallen over. Names no longer readable... a very sad sight. These were individuals that had families...hopes... dreams... passions... and this was all that was left. A broken, decaying, moss covered stone with a name not readable.

Ones name is very profound. Fathers give their name to their sons. The first of the many gifts from a Dad. Yet, I could not read the names those whom I was encountering on this day.... I apologized to them, AND their Dads that this had happened to their name... 

In the distance... an auto salvage yard. Cars lined up as far as the eye could see.... rusted... flattened... in various pieces... with animals nesting in its decaying cabins. I thought... At one time, these were the "cool cars"... the ones we see commercials about and some eagerly await their arrivals for the new model year. But now? Rotting. Forgotten. How many family stories must lay inside these decaying remains... How many songs were listened to? How many Dads showed how many sons and daughters how to drive in how many of those cars? It was a powerful visual. it began the whole thought that everyONE.... AND everyTHING... goes away. To dust we shall return...

I wrote the entire Ashes track on this day...

    Hello! Thank you for stopping in. We surely are! I'm am working on my music in some capacity every single day. Whether it be playing, writing, recording, mixing, teaching, editing, rehearsing, video editing... the list goes on... I'm at in all the time! Blessed! What I'm NOT doing on a constant basis, or very much at all, is the social media, which I guess is what brings people into the day to day. I could use to be better at that, but my list is pretty big already :) The good news is the Ashes music video is complete! About two weeks ago we got done editing. We began shooting in March of 2020 and were quickly brought to a halt when the shutdown happened. When the production company was given the green light to start working again, they were quite backed up, but it's done! We were able to get 4 seasons in it!! Very exciting to see the finished product! When the Director gives me the final product, I will be sending a private viewing link to those on my CMP email list members first...so get on the email list and you'll see it :) We hope to be performing again soon as things begin to hopefully stay on the upswing. Have lots of new music to share! Peace
