So this project has already been pretty awesome. I’ve been kicked in the pants by some great friends. (Beki Gangi and Stephen Elliot). They’ve been incredible in support and encouragement to move forward. I’ve been really excited and pumped about putting together these posts and sharing them with you.
This is the first musical post. Not musical like ‘The Sound of Music’ kind of musical. I’m talking about doing some rough recording and sharing that with you all. This song is a newer one called Biloxi Bound.
Dad and Mom got married when they were pretty young. Dad joined the Air Force and they ended up having to make a quick move from Texas to Mississippi. It was a funny story about how they packed everything into their little yellow Gremlin, drove down to Mississippi and only found one place in the town that they could stay temporarily because there was some sort of big event happening. It ended up being the grimiest place (READ: Cockroach infested) in someone’s basement that they randomly met on the side of the road on their way out of town.
They moved everything in the dark and fell asleep on the sunken mattress. Tink, their little dog, ended up chewing on the critters all night. But it was their adventure, and they look back on it with smiles and laughter now. I just wanted to capture that story in music.
