There is nothing more in this world I love more then singing. Going one step further, there are few things I love in this world more then singing 80’s music… the very music that made me realize… “Hey I can do that”. The hair, the big guitars, the synth pop… equal parts sexy and innocent… there were no “bad, ugly singers” because we were all rocking out together and not really judging each other (or at least that’s what I remember).
Stepping down from two bands that I loved to sing in was the hardest thing I ever had to do, but probably the wisest decision I have ever made. It was a swampy summer night… the after shock of P!NK Tributegate was truly starting to be felt in every cell of my body. I won’t get to much into details… (You’ll just have to get the book!), but it got to the point where I literally lost my sense of direction finding a club I had been to a million times and could not for the life of me remember the words to “Rock You Like A Hurricane”…even though I had listened to it hundreds of times. It was my “Britney Breakdown Moment” and fortunately.. it too did pass.
It was time to step down and become one with the disaster. To admit I’m not OK. Admitting I couldn’t bring my A game any more (or even my B or B plus game), was the ultimate show of self love and strength, as I made healing my first priority.
If you truly love something or someone you let it go and if it’s meant to come back, it will. Come back it did, because I will be singing with my homeboys and girl in Lavender Steel this July 30th at Monticello Casino Lava Lounge… !
Hope some of my readers who are local can come out!
