Old Set List
What's up friends? I'm gearing up for a lifechanging Spring. Many feelings go out to your ears as I prepare to send new sounds waves to them. I've got my transition to New York City on March 30th planned out and I'm stoked to share my new sounds with you. New EP's, videos, songs, DVD's, blog posts, interviews, performances, flash mobs, duets, jazz recordings, full band vibes, dreamlike slow motion soundwaves, and last but not least closer to love. To future friends I will meet, I am looking forward to telling you Your Beautiful and how I can best lift you up. And to past friends, you already know that all you need to do is Tell Me How. For future grateful vibes may send us Far From the Shore, and past positive vibes have bestowed in my memory to Just Breathe. I give you a Set List I found. This was from Milly's Tavern. On Nov 2
Us Against The World (Coldplay)
After The Rain
Lotus Flower (Across The Universe)
Vacation At Home
Galaxy (Jason Mraz)
Waiting on the Tide to Change
In this fast paced world, it is all about recording. Record, record, record. With my job interview in place, my next thought is I will need to be searching for a recording studio. If anybody reading this has a connection to a recording studio in NYC, please contact me using the contact tab. The next recording opportunity I get I will be looking to record these songs...
Remind Yourself (new 2012)
Dream On (new 2012)
The City (new 2012)
Just Breathe (2011)
And then I would be looking to record old material to get on I-Tunes such as...
One Thing is For Sure
Rhythm of A Song
I hope to write 2 or 3 more songs before I begin working on my next project to put on I-Tunes. My feeling and my prediction is that I will release another 12 tracks or so onto I-Tunes through a NYC recording studio and by that point I would have over 20 songs available for purchase on I-Tunes. Once these songs are circulating ipods, radio stations, etc. then it would be time to perfect the songs with a full band and release it. If I had to guess the first project you will be able to purchase in Best Buy or at least your local Newbury Comics will be a live album. Its fascinating to think how nearly everything is live. When it comes to live, energy, recordings, and in the moment sound waves producing mutual feelings, I never fail to be 100% in awe. Life is good.
Fox News CT
While auditioning in the MyStudio booth this morning for the X Factor, I ran into Fox News so we did some filming together. It is quite a feeling. Thank you Fox for your promotion and I am grateful to be a part of the audition process and looking forward to it. :-D Casey Mens, you were a pleasure to talk to and I wish you all the best in the future and wish you plenty of success. Love, Zach
Cleaning out my Music Closet
Can you feel it? Can you feel the change? Can you feel the vibe, the energy, the love, the peace of mind, the gratitude. Do you hear what I hear? The sounds in the air, the noise, the waves. I am living in the now and have never been more prepared for this change which will launch my career. Without further adue, here is the music closet video that I recorded in Winchester MA on December 28th, 2011.
The song list is as follows....
Vacation At Home
Heaven or Hell
At Last into L-O-V-E
All For You
After the Rain
Tell Me How
Far From The Shore
Happy Endings (Jason Mraz Cover)
Meet the BUDDY BOX
When I was 4 years old my grandmother gave me THE BUDDY BOX as a Christmas present. Allow me to introduce to you THE BUDDY BOX....
The BUDDY BOX. My treasured Buddy Box. My buddy box is my buddy. When I was 4 years old, I said to myself, in life sometimes you get things you always want to keep. My buddy box holds many of lifes most precious items. It holds my journals, birthday cards, basketball gold metals, passes from disney world, old credit cards, and yes, even the pin they placed in my arm when it broke in the 5th grade. EEWWW, i know. Allow me to show you around my (once secret) buddy box...
In my sophomore year this beautiful, magical, gypsy of an angel showed up briefly in my life. I began thinking of Felicia Allen a few hours ago which led me to my online buddy box presentation. I met Felicia in English class, and wrote about her in my journal. I began thinking to myself a few hours ago, what if Felicia is who I was meant to spend my life with. What if she is a talented songwriter, gifted artist, or just a naturally incredible person whom I could fall madly in love with once she reads this. Without further adue, here is my journal entry on Felicia Allen...
Age: 16 February 14, 2006
Standing in her bedroom as she reaches into my pockets and pulls me closer towards her body. With closed eyes she gently places her hand on my head as we begin to kiss.
Yup, Felicia Allen is her name. A beautiful girl from Georgia who recently moved to Manchester. She fits my profile of a perfect girl. And she shares hundreds of the same interests while many different traits. She's amazing, I will admit. ETC.
Next on my list is an experience I held with my father before he passed away from lung cancer inside a church with FATHER DIORIO. In the picture you see holy water and a gold cross that says Father Diorio. Faintly, I remember the gripping experience that led me into a floating feeling of warm tingly sensations as Father Diorio put the Holy Water on my forehead and led me into one of those shaking outer body experiences where you fall back into someone elses arms. Yes, the experience and moment lasted seconds and theres something I love about the Holy Water and Cross that reminds me of the experience....
And last but not least we have pictures of my nearly naked self holding tickets to the phanomenal concerts of both John Mayer and Jason Mraz....
It is with great pleasure, gratitude, excitement and love that I conclude this blog mensioning the next two tour dates of March 9th and March 10th. March 09th, I will be headed to Connecticut to enter the Mystudio booths and audition for the lifechanging X FACTOR. I will be auditioning all 3 ways, including online with Far From the Shore, at the Mystudio Booth with At Last, and in Providence RI May 10th with At Last, L-O-V-E, This Moment, Tell Me How, Far From the Shore, you know, as many songs as they wanna hear. You catch my drift. Finaly March 10th, I will be headed to NYC to audition for the voice. This leads me to send out my extreme gratitude for the intelligent and genious Christina Aguilera, for, if I were to ever get a chance to sing to her, I would have trouble walking on stage due to the addictive feelings running up and down my spine. Christina Aguilera is pure genious and I'm thankful for all her music. If given the opportunity to chose between Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, or Blake Shelton, I would chose Christina Aguilera and pursue a duet with her. How cool would it be if she worked with me while I re recorded YOUR BEAUTIFUL? In the other court, the X FACTOR would be great. For it would lead me closer to the Sony Contract and closer to 500 Madison Ave, which is where this little burning ball of love is dying to record. My next album HAS to be at 500 Madison AVE in the Sony Plaza. Of course, theres a billion places I could record, but the Sony Plaza is the dream starter, the legend holder, the king of kings, the queen of queens, the honorable of honorables, the treasured upond treasures. THE SONY PLAZA is wht I have my finger on, it's where my journey ends and begins. The sony plaza. Sigh. As mensioned in earlier blogs, when I am performing in NYC all of this April, I will be busking outside the Sony Plaza in between shows. It is where I hope to bump into someone. So LOVE. cough LOVE excuse me LOVE there it is again LOVE ahem LOVE............. I will finish this post letting you know I love you. I love you from the moon to the stars. From jupitor to pluto. I love you from the milky way to your mothers kitchen. I love you. And I wish you all the joy happiness and safe travels during this winter wonderland. Take CARE.
As mensioned on facebook my goal of 2012 is to get my business worldwide, globally, and internationally known. While this is not an easy task, it is my goal. I plan on getting a STORE tab on the website where you can purchase merchandise, albums, digital downloads, books i will one day write, and movies i will one day direct. With this said, it is my job and my goal to gather my team. My friends, whom I love, my future friends, who i will love, my loves, my lovers, my loveys, and my loveliests. My goal is to get that clan, group, band, record label, clique, whatever you wanna call it. BUSINESS partners... a group of young people my age, who aspire to be positive role models, infuse there products with love and positive energy, and inspire kids to treat others with respect and focus on what makes them great and awesome at whatever they chose to do in life. My goal is to be love and find those similar minded people who are in the same state of mind and after the same achievements (After all the worlds FULL of incredibly remarkeable people) so if your reading this and say, hey I aspire to be love, positive, and want to join a movement of grateful energy in which audiences upon audiences sing along and animals freeze in feelings of sounds inviting spine tingling chills down the listeners grateful eardrums, then it's easy. Click on my contact box and contact me. Lets work together. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 6035120010. You already know I love you, so now that that fact is known, let our love align into a global, international, worldwide business connected and full of energy peace and love. And it all started here, at the Coffee Factory in Derry NH..
While in there the other day, I told the kind business owner, that I will promote his wonderful coffee shop and try to film a show there in the near future and put it up on YouTube. I love to think of it as Jason Mraz's Java Joes. Mraz was famous for playing at Java Joes and I love to think of The Coffee Factory as a similar type to feeling. Pete and Rhiannon do a remarkeable job running this Open Mic there constantly. See you at The Coffee Factory again. I plan on filming a show there and if your in Derry NH this week and next week, I'm going to be hanging out at The Coffee Factory during the day before my auditions.
