“I, John Kirby, do swear to make the year of 2009 full of more blog posts and musical happenings than ever before.”
I can still do that right, we’re not too, too late in the game of new years resolutions that I can’t join in the celebratory fun?
Anyway, how are you? Its been forever! Well just over two months.
I had some serious thinking I had to do though So much so that it took me more than two full months to weed out Ideas, Options, Decision
Oh how I wish it was actually that easy. I had all these FANTASTIC ideas.. all of these wonderful options! Most of them involved me moving over seas to live in the UK, spreading my “SOUND” across the awesomeness that is Europe. Others were selfish desires and whims.
My mind, much like my mouth, moves faster than the speed of light and for me to actually accomplish any of my goals, let alone set goals is a stunning feet in its self. So you would imagine my surprise when, after returning from my east coast tour with Trevor Howard last November, I was at a loss of what was going to do next.
I’d done it all; released the EP I said I would, shot the video, toured the country. I was so amazed I actually did any of the things I had planned to do, I hadn’t stopped to think what would come next. My desire and love of travel had me pegged to drop Canada all together, move away for years returning only for the occasional family issued holiday and to go on tour.
Now its not to say I didn’t enjoy meeting you this year in my travels, its more my stir crazy nature when I stand still for too long. Actually, its the people I met this year, the people who’ve been messaging me on MySpace and Facebook asking me to come back out and play again that I’ve decided to stay. That and the desire to do something bigger and better here first before I move on… anywhere.
That being said, I am writing my new album, tentatively titled “We All Share Demons” (at least that s the running theme for it anyway). I’ve gotten back together to jam with the guys in FTF to do some new stuff in that area as well. Hell, I’m even back on the road again with the guys in Blind Mule from March 14th – May 2nd (Click Here Dates).
Yeah, things are looking okay, and I’m still getting to travel, so that at least quells my itch to not be in one place for too long. And with the hope of a small tour in Germany this August, I met even get to play in Europe.
Things are fixing to be a good year.
