WARNING: Listening to this music doesn't require parental approval. It's a bit of clean rebellion. It keeps your outlook up and your hope alive. It's got strong drums and screaming guitars. It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

Sunday, July 10, 2005

I played the gig downtown today, and that was a lot of fun. I think that, tops, we had, maybe 10 people listening at any one time. Still, I thought my performance went pretty well.

I tried out "Today and Yesterday", and "Turn it Up" in the set, and I was glad I did it today. I was a little nervous about them both. I've been practicing them a lot, especially in the car as I drive to and from work, but I'm always nervous about forgetting the words. Sometimes that happens, even with songs I'm really familiar with.

But I didn't and that was cool.

Also, with "Today and Yesterday", I wasn't sure just how the "whispered" vocals would impact my sung vocals. I'd cut them after I'd cut the regular lead vocals, so I wasn't used to singing the song with those echoes going on. But it didn't throw me in performance, at least not this time.

In fact, the only song I had troubles with was "Toy Soldiers", because if I talk or anything at the beginning, then I lose count of how many measures of drums happen and I don't come in at the right spot.

"How can you tell if there's a singer at your door?

"He can't find the key and he doesn't know when to come in!"


Then John and I went to the SLC Jazz festival where I was completely blown away! I'll write more about that over at Mo' Boy, though...
