The Devil's Music: Give'em somethin to dance to

12345678
I love the blues like I love folk music. I love them both like I love country...like I love the sound of the wind and the sight of the moon. I love music like it's the only lover I've ever known...the only foundation that has been steady enough for me to stand on.

I'm a writer with a voice that probably won't make your ears bleed but I don't think it's strong enough to sing the songs in a way that makes people feel them the way that I feel'em. I want to make the sorta music that moves you without your noticin it. That stomp clap music. That bluesy depth that has your foot tappin' and your hips swayin and your head rockin from from side to side. I wanna build somethin worth makin.

But I also want to write those slow burns. The heavier songs that talk about regret, living in the past because you never planned to live long enough to have a future. Stories about hellhounds and forbidden love.

I have lyrics. I have topics for video essays, I have no knowledge of technical terms or music theories but I know what feels good and I wanna put more of that into the world.

A little more Howlin Wolf, Little Walter, Orville Peck, The Civil Wars, Colter Wall, Sean Rowe and Muddy Waters. I've tried to start a band before so this time I'm not gonna label it and let the universe lead whoever I'm supposed to collaborate with to this post.

Be you a producer, guitarist, bassist, or just your average joe (or jane) that might wanna sing a little somethin from time to time. There's so much more I wanna mention but I've taken up enough of your time for now.

I know not many of us have a lot of free time these days but if you've got a little to spare...maybe we could make some magic together?

Thank you for readin'. Be well.
