Young Love Available NowAugust 2, 2011
I’m sitting alone in West Hollywood at Cafe Prima, sleep deprived, filled with an sense of peace, as well as anticipation. I just finished a long run of dates, which always leaves a sense of accomplishment. Someone on a plane sitting next to you asks, “You were on a tour? Where you been?” and you smirk and say “You name it”. This time it’s entirely different because I can’t help but know I’ve just begun.
Today marks a day I have only experienced a few times in my life; the release of a new record, the preparation for a new tour, and another shot to live my dream. I can’t help but feel freaked out and completely blessed all in the same breath. I have to hold still so that the DJ kid sitting next to me ripping vinyl onto his laptop doesn’t see my eyes fill with tears as I write this. Here we go again. We are in this together. If “Young Love” is worth anything it’s because you think it is. I started out making records for my friends. I’d track them down and make them listen to the new songs I had written. It was like I was trying to rip their heart out with a pocket knife and sing the grace of god back over the damage I had done. Not much has changed over these last years. I’ve kept on trying to do that same thing in different ways. And it seems I have made a few more friends than when I started. Thank you for all your support, I hope this finds you well.
