Feeling a bit camera shy


I'd have more to say here if I hadn't been working 50 hours a week for the past five years managing a call center. Some of my songs are about that--a steady flow of college kids and artists in and out, always changing, working a few hours here and there, flitting about, and I'm on the other end of the spectrum. Other songs are about women, or places around Boston. There's even a running theme based around laundry and domestic stuff if you listen closely. I can honestly say that I've played bars and clubs around Boston fairly regularly for a good while now, but every time I get a little momentum going, there's the job, or something, that keeps me from getting closer. I've been playing the guitar for a very long time, and I'm teaching myself the drums and bass at the moment. I can play a toy accordian and a harmonica too. My songs sometimes sound like they were written by Eeyore (I wish I could say Elliott Smith instead), but I'm not mopey onstage and I can win a crowd over in Boston, which must go for something.
