I played my first show of the year last night with an amazing group of local performers. And I resolved to become more active in the singer songwriter community here in Pittsburgh. There is such an amazing amount of talent that dwells within my city. I spent the last several years only briefly coming into contact with a group of performers that feels more like a family then anything else. Its hard to stay inspired in a vacuum. I put a lofty goal upon myself of writing songs this year. This year I focus more on the music which, through out every phase in my life, seems to be the bedrock on which I was placed.
