So I woke up this morning, to a nice surprise. I logged onto my ReverbNation page, and noticed the Funk charts for AZ. My mouth dropped open when I saw that I was #1 (8^O) That's pretty sweet, since I'm just getting back to the scene. I think I'll work a little harder and see how long I can hold my spot down. We shall see...
Hello Friends, It's been quite some time since I first started writing the music for this debut album, but believe that it's going to be worth the wait. I always hated buying a record for a tune that I loved, then get it home and the rest of the 10 songs suck!!! All that cash for 1 good track..BS. So I spent a lot of time going over everything that I finished, and if I didn't love it, it went in the trash! That's my promise to my fans: When I put out a record, every track will be bait.; D So, only 2 tunes to go, and we'll be ready to go to the studio and get it ready for you. So thanks for being patient with me. It won't be very much longer! Be easy... DaIMeOn
I'm back, friends!
Hey Y'all! I am just writing you today to let you know that I'm back for good! I promise to stick around this time, and keep bringing you sweet tunes. Keep your ears open! See you soon.
If Things Keep On...
Whassup Peeps! It's 3:30 in the morning, and I'm just about to lay it down, after 20some hours of hustling! No more than I've been hustling for the last 7 years, but for some reason, all the sudden, everything is coming together, just the way that I dreamed. I know, deep down inside, that this was all supposed to happen, and unfortunately for me, I had to suffer every day of my life, in order to see the light. I've witnessed so many unbelieveable things, since the day I first awoke from that coma, in the dark. That's the day that I begged God to forgive me for every horrible thing that I had done in my life, and made some promises to Him, that I knew I couldn't break. My soul depended on it. It was right then, that I was born again. I think this has something to do with the reason why my memory sucks, so bad. That was somewhat of a gift. I forgot the details to everything that I had done, for 29 years, except for major things, like near death experiences, the first time I had sex, or smoked weed, and what I was doing, the morning that the Twin Towers were destroyed. Today, my memory is just as bad as the day that I woke up, in 04', and that is kind of weird, to me, because everything that I've been doing, and learning, all these years require a sharp memory, and I can't think of any other reason why, besides that the things I'm doing are the things that God wants me to do. For example: This past November, when I had a seizure, on stage, at one of my gigs, fell off stage and hit my head. I woke up with a case of amnesia, so bad, that when asked my age, it took me a while to figure it out, and answer. I have no idea how many days the amnesia lasted, but when I came out of it, I found some of the greatest music that I'd ever written, and it was entiltled "Amnesia". Had no idea that I wrote it, until I found it, by accident, in one of my songbooks, two weeks later. The weird thing about it, was that I was talking, all day, that day, about how I just had to write a song to explain the trauma I had suffered. Then, a few hours later, I'm reading about all the things that I remembered happening with my mind, from the time I woke up with injuries to my head and face. The only way that I knew that I wrote it, was because I wrote it by hand, and it was definately my handwriting ; ) I can't look at this happening, as anything other than another gift from God, to me. Another silver lining at the end of a tragedy. It gets deeper, but I have to go to bed, and I could tell you more and more amazing things that I've been experiencing lately. I think I need to find a ghostwriter, and write a book about this whole trip. I feel deeply, that if I've got the information stored, and I can remember details, that it's just another thing that He wants for me to do, before it's all over... So, Good night, Folks! I'll talk to you again soon...Sweet dreams... One, -dm-
What's up, Friends! I was just sending thank yous out to all of my fans, this morning, and I was just thinking that I hadn't blogged in a couple months, so I thought I'd fill you in on what's been going on with me... I see that I wrote a blog on November 4th, but I don't remember writing it :l...What happened, was that a day or two after that blog, I played a show @ a bar called Joe's Grotto. I don't remember being there either, but I saw someone who was there, at another show that I was taking part in, and he proceeds to tell me how I kicked ass at Joe's, but that I freaked everyone out and had a seizure as soon as I started cleaning up. That's when I fell off the stage with my guitar strapped to my neck. I had no idea, but that info helped me piece some other stuff together....I didn't know it at the time, but a day or two after Joe's, I woke up in the afternoon, and had a bad case of amnesia! I didn't recognize my dog. I thought that I lived alone and tripped out when my roomate came walking through my front door. He had been living with me for three months already :) Lucky for both of us, I've know DJ for 31 years. Otherwise I may have tried to kill him, thinking that he was coming to do me harm>=(.. I'm not sure how long that the amnesia lasted, but it seemed like forever! Scariest shit to happen to me, since waking out of that coma, blind and paralyzed, 7 years ago. What was so scary about it, was that my brain is what has helped me walk again, see again, and so many other issues since 03'. I lose that, I might as well be dead! Thankfully, I'm all better, and like every terrible thing that happens to me, it came with a silver lining! I didn't know it until last week, but the day that I woke up, all confused, I wrote half of a song called "Amnesia", about every crazy thing that was happening that day....It was after I decided that I needed to write that song, that I started to clean out my songbooks, to make some room for it. I started cleaning out the 2nd book, and there it was, staring me in the face; A song entitled "Amnesia", and a whole page of lyrics for it, that let me know exactly when I wrote it, because of the things that it said....I'm accepting this song as another gift from God. Just trying to help me serve the purpose that he saved my life for, before I even picked up a guitar =) I know, it's deep, but this whole recovery, I've tried to figure out why I was spared, because I knew that there had to be many more people who were better than myself, that he could have saved instead....So from the day I awoke from that coma, I started praying, and made some promises to Him, to change things about the way I had lived my life, up to that point. That's when I first started to heal. First, my vision came back, then my upper body. It took a few more months to make my legs move, but according to the doctors, that was too early, since I wasn't supposed to ever move them again ;)...Anyway, this is when I started my relationship with God, and it doesn't get any more real than this, because like I said, every terrible thing that happens to me, comes with a silver lining...This particular tragedy guided me to playing music for a living, and I can hardly believe everything that's going on with my music. I finished "Amnesia" and two more songs, last week, which brought me really close to being done with my first album! I want to be good to my fans, and give them an entire album of "Jams", or potential hits, because I always hated it, when I heard a song that I loved, on the radio, went and bought the $15 cd, and the rest of the album sucked >=(....So, it took me a little longer to write, but I can sell my music, and not feel bad about it. At the same time, keeping the fans that I have, and picking up some of their friends. That's what's up! So, I'm about to start recording this demo. Wish me luck! Happy New Year! -dm-
What's Up, People!!!
Hey Everybody, As always, it's been a minute since I've written. A lot of good things going on since my last blog! We're just about to put the finishing touches on the documentary that Joe Valentine and I started a few months ago. Probably put it on the cutting board after the Marquee Theater show, on November 17th. I'll have tickets to this 12 band event in just a couple days, and I'll only have 30 of them, so if you want to go, hit me up. Other than these two things, I'm spending every night playing the guitar, and writing song lyrics. Very soon, I'll decide that they are good enough, and I'll make the next track for my debut cd... Until then, be easy... -dm-
It's Been a Minute...
Wow! I just noticed that it's been a minute since I put up a blog. I'll try and keep it more up-to-date.. What have I been doing? Well, I've been spending some time working on the new tunes that I need to finish and record my album. That's always fun, and it's coming along! I've also been working with a great artist named Joe Valentine, who has been filming a documentary style video about the crazy journey that brought me to where I am today. It's going to be sweet! I'll keep you posted, but we can't be too far from being done with the filming. I hope everything is going well for you all, and thanks again for your support! -dm-
SOUL SHANTY SHAKEDOWN @ HOLLYWOOD ALLEY...
Hey Everybody, Last night's show @ Hollywood Alley, Mesa, was a lot of fun! It seems to be getting bigger, every time I play there! It was great to see some of my old friends from Dobson High School. Brought back a lot of funny memories..;) I also want to thank "Weird is the New Cool", for sitting in. We'll have to do more shows together, now that school is back in session, and venues are willing to spend a little money...I'll be in touch... If you missed me last night, don't worry, I'll be doing a three hour performance @ Pier 54, @ The Lakes, in Tempe, this Friday, 7pm-10....Come on down! It will be one to remember... Jah Bless, -dm-
It's almost 2am, Friday morning, and I just logged on to ReverbNation to see how "Mercy" is doing on the global charts. After dropping 200+ points last night, I never expected that tonight I would have jumped up 4500 points, to make "Mercy" #67 in the world (World/Reggae) and #3979 in the world (all genres)! I'm feeling really good tonight! I think I'll get a good night's sleep, complete with nice dreams, and spend tomorrow preparing to give you a great performance, tomorrow night @ Stella's... Good night and thanks again for your continuous support! We're going to put AZ back on the map for something other than bullshit politics!!! -dm-
Wow! It's been five weeks since I joined ReverbNation and all I can say is that I'm thankful to its creators, because having access to all this music is a blessing! And having a place where the world can hear my music, is turning out to be the greatest opportunity that I've had in this biz! Thanks to all my fans for helping me on my rise to the top! I won't forget you...One love, -dm-
