How do you write? What keeps you going?
Well, just make some sound! If you love music you know how you've done it in the past. Pick up your guitar, or your choice of instrument and make some sound. That's what I'm going to do, this April. I'm just going to open up and sing. Whatever comes out, comes out, and I can edit it later, preferably, right then and there. But you can be sure I'm going to be making some noise this Spring.
I'm wishing everyone a happy Easter and a warm and welcoming Spring.
This week I will be working on some covers of my favorite new artists as well as my favorite old artists. I plan on stopping by at some local open mics as well as posting some upcoming shows. New shows are on the horizon and music is in the air. I can't wait to get out there and jam like you only can in the warmer weather.
But for now, put your voice to work and sing out whatever comes to mind. Strum some chords, sing some notes and make some noise. Don't over analyze it, just write it. If you write it, they will love it. I will love it. It came from you. It's unique, it's one of a kind, and it's yours. Write it, leave it, and it will form itself. Start writing something new today!
Hey, y'all! My website is back up and running. It feels like it's been forever. So what is new?
Lots of stuff...
What Can Love Do (The Demos) was recently released to both noisetrade.com and archive.org. For a link to the music visit my blog at www.zrobb50.blogspot.com. Also we have a new album we are releasing within months titled The Drake. I did an interview with a dear friend of mine this past winter and the interview will surface shortly. There have been bits of pieces of the interview that have been surfacing but we will talk about that later.
I have been working with covers lately. I think the reason, is because inspiration has taken it's course and people have inspired me to bring back old covers and also to start working on new covers. Some of my latest Brett Dennen and Beatles covers are available on my YouTube channel.
When I first came up with the idea to start releasing more covers, I immediately thought of the covers I did when I was younger. Covers that have posted in the past include covers by artists Jason Mraz, Allen Stone, Ben Harper, and Brand New. I remember listing a few covers over at my other blog and listing artists such as John Mayer, Rob Thomas, Fleetwood Mac, and more. Those covers never got posted as videos though. Anyway, I began to rack my brain of who I have been covering lately. You know, new music! I know that some artists that I have covered lately include Twenty One Pilots, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes, Jason Mraz, Kesha, and more. A lot of that music is pop. But I really like to test the waters of alternative and country too. Music is great, and one awesome suggestion I gave to listeners in my latest YouTube video of me covering Because by The Beatles was to press play on The Beatles album titled Love. Love is an experience and a great way to open your mind and focuso on the love that's all around us.
The words burning like scriptures inside my brain
