CD RELEASE THE ROYAL BLUE TRIO
Creating music is a strange thing. Sometimes the first idea you have is the best. Sometimes the first time a song is played is the best time it gets played. Everyone is alert. Everyone is listening. It comes together with a special type of magic, and sometimes you spend a
lot of time trying to get that moment back. It takes a special type of person to create music that is totally in the moment. You have to be creative, but also you have to be fearless. With Phil Collings, Tim Burnham and Jake Mason I had the perfect partners in crime. They understood what I meant by “ Fangin”, “Bo Diddley” or “Chess Records on Steroids”. These songs were written but not finished.
I also wanted to get surprised by what might happen and adapt to what I was hearing. I
wanted to make the lyrics go where the music travelled. When you listen you are in the moment with us. On the Journey. One rule. One listen. One run through. One take. If there is a fluff, leave it. A missed lick. Fix it later. I hope you dig what you hear.
