Fun to relive old times & talented artists of our past/present/and hopefully future. We woulda never left Chicago without an old friends’ music cheering us on…
Every time someone was in my car they would ask (more like scream), “WHO is this!?”
–He’s our Nashville souvenir…and eventually a removed catalyst in our move to California. His music just shared so much emotion with how the days felt in Chicago, yet it was a reminder of the past and someone that I truly admired. I don’t say that about many people, probably none. He didn’t wait for someone to offer him a way to make his music. He just made it. He learned and challenged himself. He worked days at a time in his little home studio. He worked a day job to buy more and add to his studio. I completely adopted his model in Chicago. He renewed my spirit. He made me wanna dream differently. I buried myself in my work and continued to Fail With Pride (our other Nashville take-away). So when his album released…and it was speakin my language…and Chicago was completely shit, boiling over, and busting at the seams. I knew it was time for another lifetime adventure. I love every piece of California. And our amazing journey to get here. Even if I do miss all the amazing people that helped us get here. Every. Single. Day. But I’m so glad to have found home.
(I know, I know. The video of the move and our Route 66 is soooo far past due–but it’s happening. I’ve been very busy setting up the small studio of my dreams. Workin. Testin. Workin some more. The Young Hines way… :D)
