2010 - Full steam ahead


As I sit and recollect the previous year, it's indeed nothing short of a roller coaster ride. On one hand the band stepped up a few rungs of the enormous ladder we've been on since 2006. Releasing "Recollections of Memory", guest appearing with Ulrich Schnauss at SXSW, playing live on KEXP and East Village Radio, playing Monolith, and releasing the side project known as Brim Liski were big highlights.

But on the other hand it was a battle and many things were lost. Enoc and the band split ways, countless nights of sleep were lost from the ever present death of my friend Michelle, and we had to hold back on touring till 2010. Of course we're all aware of the increasing pressure of the economy, a very unstable war, and the consequences avoided which have resulted in an unstable climate. But with the new year comes new hope. That's really all we can have at this point in time as we all know the future is completely black until we turn on the lights with each passing day. We look forward to new experiences, new music and a step out of the secure pasts we lived. I vow to make change for myself, the band and for the fans we have so graciously found through our music.

Starting with day one of twenty ten I promise to devote more energy to the one thing I love most of all, that being music, and I surely hope to share it all with you and with those new ears who stumble upon it. Some risks indeed will have to be taken to make this possible and I look forward to giving some new ideas a try. This coming decade is all about not standing back, but standing up and taking a chance. Every person should and does have this right as with every passing year it's remembered how short of a lifespan we all really have. I feel grateful to be alive and to be able to experience all of this. It's indeed amazing how possible it is for us to consciously act on our own in this existence. Might as well take full advantage of it...

I very much look forward to SXSW, a new album and an overall focus of present. I'm proud to have the guys in A Shoreline Dream there every step of the way and couldn't imagine it otherwise. Here's a toast to 2010 from A Shoreline Dream to you!

Seasons change, people change and music changes. A Shoreline Dream is no different. Red Rocks changed us, and so do our fans. The band is my family. The music is my love. I'll never turn my back on it no matter who may. More music is on the way, in one form or another, and we thank you for being a fan. For taking even one minute to listen and to us. This is what it's all about, and though things change, the music will always live on.

the days turn into years

Listening to "I can't see New York" by Tori Amos over and over tonight. It brings about such vivid memories of my time with Michelle. I just can't shake it free. She was the one there by my side no matter what crazy shit went down, with a smile brighter and happier than any other I've ever seen. Its been a very rough 7 months now. I've been at a loss for words. I plan to try and weather it soon with some new recordings. I need to clear the brain a little more before diving into the pool again. Hopefully some of the new gear coming will lift me up a little more.

In the meantime we are hard at work getting ready for our appearance on KEXP coming up in a few short weeks. How can such amazing things happen at the same time as the sad?

Post SXSW with Ulrich & Long-View

I plan to write more, but wanted to say that this year's event was quite amazing indeed. In fact, a huge goal was reached as soon as I stepped on stage with Ulrich and Rob from Long-View for the first performance at Elysium. The house was packed, the energy was electric, and the music was epic. I could have never asked for anything more. As we all discussed after the show at our rental house, it now feels like the whole thing in fact could have been a dream. Never would I have imagined I would have met such amazing people. Vinita, the Long-view guys and friends and Ulrich made it well worth the 15 hour trek down. I can't wait for the next meeting.

SXSW with the gazing

It's been a journey full of prostitutes working the fields, haunted houses out in the woods full of ping ponging ghosts and rocking in front of a packed Elysium crowd with Ulrich and Rob from Longview. Worth a 15 hour drive? Yes!! So very happy I was invited by Mr. Schnauss. This is exactly what it's all about. Life, that is. A dream has come to reality and that's all I can ask for. More updates soon!

masking the loss

Once again using this blog as a venting landing pad. It's been a bit since I've updated so I guess now is the time. Every day has been tough since October, and thankfully the music is helping. The CD Release went off great and a few shows coming up look super promising. Absolutely can't wait to play in NY! But I must say I didn't think it would be this hard to cope with the loss of Michelle. I guess it's mostly due to the fact that nearly everything around me relates to an experience I had with her. The visions of her smile are almost too real and too frequent, and at least once a day a breakdown occurs. I guess that would be my own personal therapy. Or maybe some songwriting would help. Not sure. Been kinda in a coma. As per the usual you can prep yourself with a loss and understand what someone is going through, but until you yourself have to deal with it firsthand it never truly clicks. Well it's clicking, and tapping, and punching now. Time to figure out how to make it subside.

Bluebird Theater
with Moonspeed & Sonnenblume
935 E. Colfax Ave, Denver, Colorado 80218


As we near the release of the storybook inspired and near psychic induced album we mustered up, I find myself reflecting even more. Never have I changed as much as I have in the past 4 months. The death of someone I felt closer to than most of those throughout my days really spun everything all around. I have felt lost in many ways. It's been extremely difficult to let go of it, and the art is even getting clouded lately. It truly feels like it happened at the most peculiar time. A time that made far too much sense, and I'm having a hard time of dropping that. When you share just about everything you have and feel with someone it's hard to just let it go. Luckily we have such amazing fans who care, and people to support through it all. I've been different, and it's moving slow, but the music keeps the inspiration going. I am excited for you to all hear what I'm talking about here and in previous posts. It's been a long and difficult journey, but I feel it was worth it. I hope you do too. February 10th we'll find out what you think. . .
