Dear friends and family,
One of my dreams when I got clean a little over 5 years ago was to write and record a full length album with a band that I love. I got that and so much more in the past year, and I am extremely grateful to be involved with something I am proud of.
It has been a dream of mine ever since I was a kid to play music full time and see the world. At this stage in my life, the sacrifices and the amount of work that goes into something like that is not an easy one, and I'm about to jump into something that I do not know the results of. But I'll never know if I don't try.
So January 2nd, I'm going to travel to Nashville to pursue a career in songwriting and playing music full time.
Post War Dream are some of the most caring, talented, empathetic people I've ever met and I'm eternally grateful to be a part of all of their lives. One of the coolest parts about playing music are the people you get to meet at shows and sharing experiences, fears, and dreams. I'm not 100% sure at this time what will happen with the band in the near future, but we will be releasing an EP with all of the newer songs we've been working on for you guys to enjoy.
As for myself, I'll never know until I try, and
I am my biggest obstacle and enemy. I had an experience recently where I understood I am ultimately responsible for following my dreams and my own happiness. I am not going to make everyone happy,
myself. This is something I have to do in order to not live in regret, which is my biggest fear. I do not want to sit at a later stage in my life wondering, "what if" so if I fall flat on my face I'll at least know I tried my hardest to get there.
To everyone that believed in this project when I didn't believe in myself, you are the true heros and angels. You know who you are. Showing up to every show, learning the words to the songs, driving long distances and sharing our achievements and failures. There are no words to really thank that kind of love; to pursue my own dreams and to continue writing about things that move me.
We have a show at The Milkboy December 6th, and I'm not sure when the next Post War Dream show will be after that. If you would like to join us, that would be splendid.
I'm very excited to see what comes next, and terrified at the same time. Post War Dream will always be in my heart no matter what happens, and I hope to see as many people as I can before I leave.
