Today I remembered that there was a trumpet lying in our crawl space. I couldn’t believe that I had forgotten about it. I also wasn’t positive I was going to be able to play. However, I picked it up and this is the first thing that came out. This is the first song I’ve ever written on a trumpet so I’m pretty excited about it. I call it “Long Lost Friends” because I feel reunited with a trumpet that I probably haven’t touched since junior high and because that’s the feeling I get when I listen to the dueling lines in the second half of the song. I hope you enjoy my trip down memory lane.
I cannot wait to make music with this sonofabitch again.
And so begins my journey. This seems as good a time as any to start documenting the path to LA and beyond.
Last week, I graduated film school at the age of 23 years old, and became officially unemployed and in debt.
In one hour, I leave for California with whatever could fit in my car, plus Alexander and his gear.
To adventures, nights filled with music & films, and conquering each and every city we set foot in.
