I’ve been spending some time working on a song, which I hope will be what John Mayer calls “transportational” I don’t like to have individual songs directly influenced by other songs, but I have been listening to the Bluetones’ “Sleazy Bed Track” a lot. Also, Drake’s “Hold on (we’re going home)”
The song, currently nameless, is totally infiltrated with themes from these two.
The story I’d like to tell is one of unrequited love, of a man or woman who never had the chance, would never get the chance. Much like Michael McDonald’s (yes, I’m pointing at him) “What a Fool Believes” it’s not a sappy broken hearted sonnet, but rather a bluesy, upbeat, deluded limerick of a fool and his memos (see, Memento)
Normally there’s a lot of difficulty in designing vocals, but since last week I’ve been following NBC’s The Voice” which always makes me feel like a producing genius. I revelate at will after an episode.
There is this rule that if you write something, you have to keep it, even if you don’t like it. Sadly, I never follow this rule, so I’m always starting from scratch with lyrics. Sooner or later I’m going to learn my lesson.
So with any luck and some longer days and nights, I’ll be uploading a song for you to listen to. This is not a promise–please don’t hold me to it.
Take it easy,


It’s been almost a year since my last post, but I’m determined to get back on the horse and resume my Thera–…..hobby.
