I spent a little time this morning remembering a few of the great experiences we’ve enjoyed over the last year, and feeling grateful for the opportunities. Renee and I grew even closer together as friends and in music (we also celebrated another wedding anniversary recently). We spent some incredible times on the road with friends, playing great music and meeting a lot of great people.
I’d have to say, one of the biggest events that happened was the making our current album, ‘Observatory’. We spent a lot of time working with great musicians, and they really gave incredible performances. I’m also happy to reflect on our new friendship with Lou Spirito, a gifted photographer/journalist/videographer (and web site builder). He and his wife are really special friends. We couldn’t have presented ‘Observatory’ in the way it turned out without them.
Here is a song/video from the album, named ‘After’:
” ‘Observatory’ is an expression of our times through music.
This suite reflects a spectrum of emotions:
• the nostalgia of an idealized past,
• the tension of vexing time in which we live,
• the anxiety of an undefined future..
This final movement, ‘After’, is one of optimism, belief, and brotherhood. ”
I hope this will be a great year ahead for all of us. Let’s make that happen!
Peace, Love, and Happiness!
Steve & Renee
