Thinking AND drinking music?

They say popular music falls into one of two categories. There’s thinking music, and there’s drinking music. Many have tried to combine them, few have succeeded. Well, I am having a go at this holy grail of rock-n-roll categories with my upcoming record. Groovier, poppier, horn… uh, well there will be horns in it. And cheeseball lyrics will be kept to a strict must-use basis. Because, as stated, it’s thinking music. There might even be a magical 3 a.m. song in there.

The songs are almost all written and there’s still a lot of doctoring and arranging to do before going into the studio. I plan to keep all of you informed on what’s happening, most likely via PledgeMusic, a site that I will be using to do my fundraising and distribution. Look for a separate email with details once the campaign launches later this month.

In other news, it’s my birthday April 16th! All guesses as to my real age will be returned unprocessed. On said day, I am playing not one, but two shows. The first is a stripped down Ezekiel Jay Band show at Bella Vista Caffé on the UCSD campus. EZJ is providing music, cake and prizes, and Bella Vista has great food and craft beers for purchase, too!

Then, I race across town for the Hard Rock Rising battle of the bands with DNT at 9:30!

Hope you can make one or both of these – it would make my birthday that much more special!
