Decided to kind of release these songs on FB during quarantine

These are the two I’ve written that people have really been digging at my live shows. Both are very much in the Jimmy Buffett/Kenny Chesney beach vibe. So, if that’s not your thing, you’ve been forewarned







The story of the second one, I was watching another artist Playing a bunch or beach/island themed songs when a buddy sitting beside me was like “you should just write a song about the beach.” So I did. And it always goes over great at live shows. By the last chorus I always see people singing along, even if they’ve never heard it before

Not sure yet.

I still have stuff on the books the next few weekends, but I’m not sure any of the venues are returning to live music yet

I have something at W101 next weekend, but not sure if they’re gonna do music yet

Haven’t heard from Shuckers yet. They’re great people and I love the place, but that’s not my favorite gig. So hot out in the full sun when I set up, and probably the first hour or so I play until the sun sets behind the building

I'm jealous. I've been spending the past few days trying to learn piano/keyboard. I can almost play with two hands a little. Almost :blush:

Good stuff, Howie!

Live music venues are starting to open up here in East TN, especially the Marina's and other outdoor venues. I'm not actively playing right now, so no gigs for me!

After 15 years of having this old upright piano, I finally got the motivation to try to tune it, since my daughter is really interested in plaything it. Got a kit for $20 on Amazon and got the old girl playable. Still needs more tweaking, but it's way better than what it was.

Now I'm learning chords and trying to play some stuff on it. Very fun!

It was my plan for early 2020 to play a load of gigs, save my pennies, and have these songs professionally recorded

But, as you know, no one’s plans for 2020 came to fruition

I’ve probably written 20 songs, with another 20+ in the works. Maybe six of those I play live at shows
