What's Going On?

Today is a good day, the 1st day of rehearsals! This studio feels amazing & sounds F*@!ing incredible. The energy it took to create the gracious tunes has been replenished, refined and renewed! I feel like we've been bred for this day, patiently waiting for this very moment and readying ourselves for the race of our lives, the horses are on the track!

The room is alive with the sounds of music and I feel just like Julie Andrews in that one movie, I mean I don't really feel like Julie Andrews I was just trying to say that I, it, this moment feels sorta like that moment in that movie about the Von Trapps where she's running through the grass singing about how great music is etc. and the kids are all there and its such a ridiculous example that I hope you all know I'm kidding but it still feels that cool!

There's nothing that can really explain how this feels you know? I mean it's kinda like, insert tongue in cheek, remember trying to explain to your best friend how the sex with that person you always wanted to have sex with was? Not that i want to have sex with these guy's but you know what I mean? Ok, now I'm just coming off as a f*@#ing kid in the background goin CRAZY! Just havin a laugh with you but honestly, we're that good!

Anyway, on to the real reason I'm writing to you today, just because you're you!

It's over, 9 months of patience, preparation & perseverance have paid off! "Honest Man" has dropped in the airwaves at the fall line, opened an account and looking so stylie even Spicoli wants in on the action! Whoa! Sorry, just watched Fast Times at Ridgemont High and got a little carried away, anyway as I was saying, The Gracious Few have finally released our first single and I gotta tell y'all, we are stoked. Exhale.

I can't believe it's been 9 months! I remember how long nine months felt when I was waiting for Jasper to pop his head out and say "hey dad, let's party," it felt like forever but this has been one of the fastest 3/4's of a year I've known EVAH! What a thrill it's been. From Lancaster to Yo RK to Newport Beach back to Lancaster jump to Sausalito off to Australia, back to Sausalito off to Miami & wrapping it all up in a nice little bow in New York City! AMAZING! We are truly blessed.

Now comes the fun part, SHOWTIME! Playing these songs live is going to be such a thrill and I tell ya, we got our work cut out for us. I'm picking up that jumprope today cause I am going to need to keep up with these rockers! I'm also really excited to take a stab at a few of these LIVE songs. We've picked some great ones as well as some off the wall covers that we hope y'all enjoy as much as we do!

Thanks everybody for letting us do this for a living, we couldn't do it without you ALL!

"dangers my business!"
