Panels and Studios

So ... I have the studio set up semi-permanently in the upstairs room of the warehouse out back here ... tonight is the test to see how things work. I'm hoping for good things ...

Anyway ... some more comments on the weekend.

I did a songwriting panel with Lojo and a guy named Kris ... I realized that I knew Kris from Boheme ... I saw some of his band's set later and they are quite good ... and I expect them to be VERY good in a year or so's time ... some really adventerous songs ... interesting dynamics ...

But ... the panel ... I suppose the main thing that amazed me was that no one asked "the question" ... who are your favorites ... probably just as well ... anyone who knows me knows that I can go on at some length about my favorite songwriters ...

I think of the panel as being as much of a jam as the jam session later that night ... we all riffed off each other and the folks watching ... and were all on the same wavelength ...

One thing that made me sad was that we didnt get a chance to get further into the "why" someone writes songs ... the necessity ...

We did get to hear a little of a song that Lojo had written that morning ... I'm listening to her pre-release CD right now ... man ... I can't wait for the whole thing to get released ...

canya tell that I am now a raving fan ???
