I would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who was a part of my journey this summer. Endless love to my band. To the people and organizers who decided to put us on their stages, to the people that came to support us in the crowds, to the people who were back stage helping us make sure things ran smoothly and of course to my family who were there to support me through it all. I am truly blessed and I know it.
Sometimes it feels unreal.
Or maybe surreal.
Either way I'm not really sure what I'm doing but so far it seems to be having an effect. The joy I had standing on the same stage that I saw Our Lady Peace on as a teenager in 2006 is something I will never be able to express in words. At that show Raine Maida climbed the rafters to the very top fearlessly and risked everything to say and do what he wanted. A true entertainer. In that moment I decided I needed to do that. I needed to feel the rush of putting my heart, soul, body and mind into music and leaving it all on stage every chance I could. I needed to feel real.
This summer I felt that. I've isolated myself for the past while so I could spend time with my partner and daughter. Ive been spending time discovering and connecting with my roots looking for answers. Ive been spending time making sense of the world that has swallowed up so many people I know and don't. I won't ever be able to stop that from happening. It's inevitable. "Don't be right do right". I have a lot of things coming up for you guys. A lot of new tunes and ideas that will hopefully allow us to keep doing this thing. At the end of the day, this only happens because of you. I'm not gunna lie and say I'm doing this for me. I'm doing this for you too. So thanks for reciprocating the feelings.
Stay tuned for alot more to come.
