It’s amazing how a little comment can get so bent out of shape. Take for instance this: the wrong George left us. I said that yesterday when I heard the news that George Carlin had died. I posted that and most people saw the humor. So George in it’s simplicity. Yet I got attacked last night and this morning for implying that I wish other Georges dead. At what point did I say that I wished anyone dead?!?
I have a few friends who are Georges, I’d say the same of them as I would hope someone would say of me. Wow.
It’s a good thing I still meet lots of cool people in this world or I’d be seeing a real path to destruction.
Today’s choice is just such a person – cool that is. I met Camila and her husband last friday at a songwriter’s bootcamp put on by SESAC. They both attended Berklee College of music. Hmmm, that’s a familiar stomping grounds. It’s always fun to talk about things like Boston in the summer. NOT! It’s damn hot there and the dorms were unrulely hot – no A/C. Ouch.
However, of all the people I met while attending Berklee I’d say at least 75% of them are still doing things in the music biz. While only about 10% of the peeps I met at Musician’s Institute are still in music. That’s a weird set of numbers. Maybe it’s just the attitude of naming a school a college rather than an institute. I don’t know.
What really matters is the spirit you put into your craft. Camila and Daniel have created one very clean and well recorded album. It’s one of those things where you hear it and you know whoever recorded it knew what to listen for and how to mix. Everything is perfectly in it’s place. All fine tooth combed.
I’m very partial to the funky groove going on. I like the electric pianos and the funky guitar. Camila is no slouch on the vocals either.
I needed to blow off the negativity from a comment backlash. This is the spirit that can lift you up. Don’t you agree? Go check out the whole CD, it’s all of equal quality.
