Night & the City
For the past two weeks, I've been immersed in a new musical project I'm calling Night & the City. Of course, that name can change at any point. So far, I'm very pleased with the way things are taking shape. In 2008, I spent a good bit of time playing guitar in an experimental project up until I had my foot operated on that August. This new project is kind of an extension of some of that music.
I'd largely stopped playing guitar aside from a few things here and there. However, a couple of weeks back, I was out one night, and someone asked me when I was going to start playing out. A female friend mentioned that she'd heard that I played, but didn't believe it, so Night & the City was pretty much born there.
Not too long ago, I swapped out some pedals in my chain, and I started tinkering, as I've frequently been prone to do (insomnia will hand you some inspiring activities), and I came up with an idea of how to take what I've really enjoyed in playing music over the past two years, and do it in a solo capacity. Two nights later, I debuted it.
Honestly, I'm excited about the material I've been working on. I like having the ability to execute what pops into my head at 3:38 in the morning and have it make sense. Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, I'll be recording some of these songs in the coming months, so stay tuned on that. Also, feel free to let me know what you think if you catch me live.
