It's true, I wrote a book.
Over a year a half of writing, 12 chapters and 60,000 words over 2 edits, it is finally (almost) complete! The point was to sum up what I have learned over 20 years in music, telling stories of my epic victories, spectacular failures and most importantly the lessons I learned along the way. It also includes over 600 of my favourite songs, giving away all of my favourite playlists that I have carefully constructed over a lifetime of making playlists in one way or another. The point is half for me and half for you. For me it was to tell my story at this interesting pandemic pause, gathering up the awesome fragments of myself I have scattered all over hundreds of thousands of performances. For you the point is to think of music in a more deliberate way. Music has the power to inspire you or defeat you depending on how you use it. This book hopes to push you in the direction of better things. So here it is, free for the taking. Starting this week I will post 1 Chapter per week on Tuesday nights, starting with the preface today in PDF form for you to read on whichever device or paper you choose. It is my gift to you in thanks of all of the memories, the shows, the highs, the lows, the meaning and the music in my life. Thank You all for allowing me to make my musical dreams all come to life. This book is dedicated to you all with immeasurable love.
