It’s been a good week.
We have an intern and he is amazing. His name is Ryan Crump and he is actually an old friend of ours from Delaware. he’s finishing up his music management degree and is getting college credit for helping us with the management/booking/marketing end of things.
I love having him here for a few reasons—
1. He is a really cool dude.
2. He makes coffee sometimes. I can never turn down coffee.
3. He’s a good worker.
4. He’s doing all of the jobs that I usually have to do, that I really don’t always like to do. Which in turn has made it so that I am spending a lot of time songwriting—something I LOVE to do!
I’ve been thinking this evening about the songs that I’ve been working on and the potential song ideas that are swirling around in my head and I thought, why not ask you guys for some suggestions? We write songs in hope that you will want to listen to them. Is there anything in particular that you’d like to hear? Perhaps you’re not much of a songwriter yourself but you’ve heard something or seen something and thought, “that would make a great song.” If we use your idea and the song makes it to the next record we’ll give you some sort of credit of inspiration in the liner notes.
In other news, I am seriously craving some chocolate. I don’t have any butter in my house so I can’t whip up a batch of brownies. I’m quite tempted to make a special trip to Kroger right now.
I’ve also been obsessed with Brandi Carlile this week. It’s like the whole world knew about her and forgot to tell me. Seriously guys, not cool!
We went to see some of our friends play on Saturday night. If you have a spare moment you might consider checking out their music. They are a husband/wife duo originally from Houston, TX and we’ve become friends and actually played a couple shows with them this past year. The band is called Dewveall. Myspace.com/dewveall should do the trick.
