I think most of you know, I am a huge fan of live music - specifically guitar, acoustic - folksy, rock, soul, alternative, country-ish (no top 20 stuff please), indie - singer/songwriters.....
I had the opportunity to see one of my top favorites - Sam Bradley Friday night in Dallas at the House of Blues! Sam played with guitarist, John Notto - these guys put on a great show; although I was a little bummed because I am height challenged, and this is one of those venues where you need to be at least 6 feet tall in order to see the stage. My friend and I got sandwiched in the middle of the crowd, and we both started getting claustrophobic, so we crawled out and wound up on the side of the room - right behind a speaker - ah, but oh well - such is life. Sam opened for Brooke Fraser - I would have preferred to see Sam perform the whole show - but.....still.... ah well, what could I do. Except ask the guy in front of me if I could sit on his shoulders, but.....that wasssna gonna happen - errmmmm. He is such a talented musician/singer and a gentleman to boot - he obliged me with a photo - along with each and every one of his fans.
I'm not a music critic by any stretch, but I know what I like - and I love Sam's music - check out his new EP, titled Zuni - you can find more info here. You can also visit his MySpace page and have a listen to several of his songs -
I'm so happy to have been able to see him perform again! It's great to see people in their element and following their dreams - it's very inspirational - it's all good - wishing him the best of luck!
This song - Sea Blue - is one of my favorites - please watch - I think you'll really like it!
I'm off to visit my sewing machine. I've got some projects to get completed before another Trunk Show on Thursday and..... a new collection of songs to listen to! (oh... and the kiddies are entertaining themselves by destroying my kitchen with playdoh..... it's all good :)
