Under the hood

  • May 17, 2015

There has been quite a bit going on under the hood with smooth sailing so to speak. I've found myself in a daily situation that feeds directly into my main passion of music. Everyday my performance/singing/presence skills are getting better. Every-time I hit a microphone there is noticeable improvement. I truly feel like I am on the road to mastery and that the fruits of this persistence will present themselves sooner rather than later. There is lots of music coming. Bear with me. (on another note, took me long enough but this site is now mobile friendly)

Reflection – Fork in the Road

  • August 20, 2014

And honestly it's not like its sold a million copies or anything, so I can just casually re-release it.

Now

  • July 27, 2013

Its been a long time since my last blog post Alot has changed mentally Alot has changed geographically Smooth Sailing has evolved Once it was a hobby and outlet Now it is my purpose There's been a large transition from this just being a passion of mine to now believing that this will actually lead somewhere The voice of "reason" has been hammering me for years... "dude, gotta play it safe. finish your degree asap, get to grad school/therapist school, get that stable money coming in and put it away/invest." I now know, and not just think, but truly believe and know, I will not be 100%...
