After the boys of Summer have gone...

"After the boys of summer have gone"....just been on the wireless...
Classic...I personally love that song...
So Summer is surely over for another year,
no chance of an Indian summer coming...but at least you guys have ‘From Here’ to keep warm with during the winter months that are to come. First of all thank you all again for your support we really appreciate it!
...So as the nights close in quicker, sounds and songs are running around the Rambling House! We are trying to find what shoes and outfits they will appear in...The writing sessions were great as you may see from some of the photos posted to Facebook....Charlie “Sonic” the Sheep...Dylan aka “the Donkey of Destiny”
...but a lot of work was done...we just wanted to crack on with album number two...you might say why...well why not...
There is just so much music to make and record so we needed to get busy again recording...we dusted down the shed moved the foosball table along with the sheep, cats, kittens, dogs, donkeys and others (no animals were harmed in the setting up the shed aka “the room”...)
I know it might be hard to believe, but we do get some serious sunshine on this island, so much so that i got burnt really badly on day one - my own fault really, but there you go, country air and sun will do that!...just my leg by the way...weird...rambling again now sorry....
The ‘From Here’ video was fun even though it doesn’t seem it! I wish i could put up a behind the scenes clip of the director shouting at me in the most quiet and emotional moments...pretty funny ...
So listening to Counting Crows now...august & everything after...great record, to me anyway...I remember jumping on my old High-Nelly (very old Irish bicycle)...and heading out the coast near Sandymount or Dollymount strand at dusk or sometimes dawn, always the best part of the days...you're either going out or coming home...just a really amazing atmosphere at those times of the day...personally I would love to hear that you might take Rezlow with you sometime on these adventures in the wee hours or early mornings...whichever....Oh and a special shout to Julia in South Carolina for your beach run photo of ‘7 Days’ (written in the sand to a gorgeous backdrop) genuinely blown away by that J..

...It’s a cliché now i know but some clichés are clichés for a good reason and that is... music is a soundtrack to the lives we live, the loves we love, the losses we lose and the gains we make....
... and this is something we all have in common we all live...we all love...we all lose...we all gain...but in between those times and in those times we have each other and that’s free. It doesn’t cost anything but our time...
And time we spend with the ones we love is priceless...
The music we make we pray that it brings smiles, laughter, dancing, tears and joy to the day to day you live. We make it because we love it and we have to make it. It’s a part of each of us and something we cannot refuse...unless we all want to go mad and start painting the walls...anyway...don't mean to be....i don't know what i don't mean to be...
...Listening to music everyday...makes everyday a better day for me...whatever music you choose if its Fat Boy Slim, Skinny Boy Bill...folk rock classical...opera...jazz...punk...whatever, we need music...
And music needs us. To me it’s the purest form of connecting to us humanities...no offence to painters, writers, actors...I love art, books, movies, theatre...but to me music is like our skin - we live in it everyday....for better or worse...we pull on our jacket...turn the lock on the door...step out into our day....and hit play on our playlist...and that’s our time we own. That time no one can tax or charge us.. for that we’re already paid up in full...life ....living the happiness, sadness, fun....and sometimes strange...we own that it’s our lives....our soundtrack....and we decide who performs it...we are the conductor, the life of the orchestra.
....as a band and people who play music we feel very blessed every time someone asks us to play a song...let me hear you....or whatever the situation....it’s a blessing.... but the only way that works is from all of us keeping together sharing our music, our lives & friendships....
Sometimes we all need a bit of oblivion....the best oblivion is in the music we love....
Thank you once again for your friendship...I shall ramble off to the wine cellar now....
Take care of each other....and we shall ramble again soon...

    Ahh, memory lane. 'Boys of Summer', first song played while driving down the Interstate in my '65 Mustang Convert. THAT was freedom. You're dead on about us needing music & it needing us. Glad you all are going into 2nd album!! Thanks for the reminder that people are only a note, chord, lyric away from each other. Enjoy the cellar :)

    Just read this, and so much of it resonated with me - the music from my youth, the music of Rezlow too in fact having known most of the boys a long time now. The notes you make on loving, losing and life - make you a great writer. I will hopefully meet the only member of Rezlow I haven't met later this year. Loving all your work and wishing you guys success and happiness.
