People used to say to me, “Only old people like the blues. If that’s what you wanna play, you’ve got a long hard road ahead of you. Do you wanna be in a bar band or make an “actual” living?”
When I started finding rock and roll, people said things like... “You’re turning your back on the blues?
You’re gonna lose a lot of fans with that... There’s no radio for what you’re doing. Rock and roll is dead.”
These are all things that got under my skin until I realized that the only voice I was obligated to listen to was my own. For me, playing music has always been a way to share something that brings joy to my life with others. It’s never been about making ALL the money in the world. It’s never been about anyone else’s opinion. It’s ALWAYS been about being joyful and feeling good outside of anyone’s box.
Who else wants to be happily sliding into Monday like this adorable river otter? #HappyMonday
