Instead of starting with the proverbial cursory excuse about how it has been along time since we got to blog, blah, blah, blah, let us just talk about writers block. Or in this case, Bloggers block.
So it is up to me to do the social media aspect of the band. I willingly and wittingly accepted the role. None of us ever even talked about it, I just began to do it and now it is my job. I like the job and I embrace the idea of speaking to folks on an ethereal level aside from the music. I dare say I may have had moments of near brilliance in doing so these past few months, or not. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed the role of blogger. That is until I ran out of things to say. Hence, my monthly correspondence with you fell right off a cliff for close to two months now. Nary an idea in sight. I have not even ventured to sit in front of the screen and pretend to write something. Until now. So this is my blog about not writing a blog.
Musicians are strange creatures. They are a hybrid of visual or graphic artists, actors, writers and performers. Everything they do requires a certain amount of inspiration. If the creativity is not forthcoming, the well runs dry. Writers block is a real and terrifying reality for musicians. When the creativity dries up, inexplicably and there is no reasonable explanation why, or any sign of the return of said creativity, it affects you to your very soul. You start to question the where, what , why and how of your very existence. It becomes a spiral of insecurity. And then, one day, out of the blue, voila! You get your mojo back!
Unfortunately, this is not my mojo. But I will say that the band is alive and well and really quite healthy. We have been playing gigs and rehearsing and even writing new material for all of you to enjoy. So keep an eye out for us. We are coming to a venue, private party or public function near you. If you require our services, let us know. We will be there.
That is all I got.
