Erin played a last minute gig at Kelly’s Logan House Friday night. It was Gable Music Venture’s songwriter showcase, which they have brought back after a long break. It was a really fun night with some incredibly talented artists.
Wrote this Saturday afternoon as part of a skirmish (1 hour writing challenge where everyone uses the same title/theme/topic). Could probably use another verse and definitely some better production, but I’m happy with it. 2018-02-03.
First day of FAWM 2018! Trying to blog about it this year more than the past few years.
Thursday was a long day. I wanted to add some harmonies and other instruments to this. I didn’t finish writing and recording this rough demo until 1:30am though, so I didn’t do that. Also I forgot how to sing at the end of the bridge, oops.
Simple song. Somehow this landed in a weird space between country and worship. 2018-02-01.
This site was hacked a few hours ago via a different user’s account. Sorry if you received any (11) emails/tweets about new spammy posts. I restored yesterday’s backup, generated new security keys, and changed some permissions so it should be fixed now.
Edit 1, 2016-01-14: Then two more snuck through somehow. This is weird. I disabled subscriber emails, updated all plugins, and generated new security keys. Weird. I’ll keep monitoring and might just re-install WordPress.
Edit 2, 2016-01-15: 3 more posts were generated, 2 from a different user and one from my user account. Don’t want to deal with this. Pulled everything from the server and started with a fresh WordPress install. Looked at the 391MB access log and noticed a lot of changes to my xmlrpc.php file on 2016-01-11. Weird. Seems like a brute force attack. Changed all passwords and security keys. Picked a new theme too because why not.
(Hello & good morning)
I will be participating in February Album Writing Month again this year. The goal is 14.5 songs in the 29 days of February (it’s a leap year). It’ll be my 8th time. I am looking forward to it.
2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year full of many new things.
On Tuesday night (2016-01-12) we played a show at the Newark Bike Project with The Promise is Hope and Shane Palko. TPIH is from Massachusetts and they’re a really wonderful duo. Shane was celebrating a birthday and the end of his east coast tour and will be departing for his Asia & Australia tour soon. It was a fun night filled with bagels and a mini snowstorm and many friends and family. I am glad to be a part of this community.
