Headline: A World Of Thanks
Just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to all of our friends. Not sure why I chose today, precisely. Just something in the air, I suppose...
It's certainly been a tumultuous year for SoN, both personally and professionally. I knew from the beginning that the FloydShow was going to be a temporary side-trip for this band. Despite the amount of attention and acclaim we received from it, and the degree to which it took over our lives for a few years I always said that one day we'd be leaving it behind ...and on that day we'd find out who our true friends are.
Well, that day came earlier this year. And we did find out. And for those who remain, we are honored by your love and support, your presence and your patronage.
We've been laying low for the last little while -- writing songs, taking the occasional small gig, trying to decide who we are and how we want to proceed with things from here on out. Next week we begin recording a new CD, in a world where the idea of what it means to be a working musician is more vague and shifty than ever. As Sarah Connor might say, "the unknown future rolls toward us." I don't know where we'll go, what we'll face, or how we'll handle it.
But having friends will definitely help.
Ok, time for turkey.
