Testing 1…2…3…

A man and his guitar. In a world of synthetic music, Robert is the real deal; he’s cotton in an industry of polyester. Organic. Original. Genuine.

This is the Robert I’ve known for several years with a short gap in between. The “in between” is where a lot of life happened for both of us, but when we reconnected, he was still a man with a guitar, now with new songs, new venues, and some new twists on old tunes.

A few summer nights during that reconnection were spent enjoying a meal on an outdoor patio while Robert serenaded us with blues and jazz favorites. The crowd would sing along at times, but even if they didn’t, live music while I enjoyed a fine wine and fresh pizza pie was quite alright with me as I enjoyed a warm night in a cozy town. Robert’s style is quite adapatable to his audience as proven by visits to other venues including a pub and a very hip diner.

On this journey of creating Back Again, I’m curious to see how the songs develop, what his aha! moments are that bring him that leading line or verse. As a writer myself, though not of music, I’m often encouraged by knowing how others make it happen. Robert is creative and brave, case in point is Anastasia’s Lament. If you haven’t hear it yet, definitely check it out.

I’m looking forward to the process of Back Again and applaud Robert for continuing to work his plan to go for what he wants. We should all be encouraged by his journey and success and put one foot in front of the other to move in the direction of our’s.
