hi friends. writing/playing/practicing/focusing on growing my act. all day every day. got 3 new songs in the works from the past week. last night i saw we came as romans at irving plaza, and it was great. was disappointed that attila wasnt there. and found the fans of emmure ot be mean. making fun of sleeping with sirens. seems pretty lame to me that grown men still need to bully. if they wernt all much bigger and more tated than me, i woulda said something. we all love music. so show respect. emmure was the heaviest thing i have ever seen. not sure i liked it, but i was amazed at how the crowd responded. anyway. im not sure how to reach out. you cant just START a band. but i really am hoping to meet good people to help me fill my music out. gonna make a great band. somewhere between dance gavin dance and bright eyes....maybe. who knows. like me on facebook and come to my next acoustic show in NYC jan. 2nd! thank you! 3
