gonna put it through the speakers

taking the tracks to the studio friday.
gonna see how it sounds.
ready to mix like mad.
make it big.
when i think of where this goes i see faces and lights flickering in the crowd, small stages and sweet speakers. Norway can hear this. the kiwis too. late night stories and wooden ampitheatre benches. appreciate the good and embrace the work. my voice isn't smooth or proper but myths of life and tales of escapin' are felt. instead of fear or judgement hear this with unblaming ideas. i will drive a van by myself to meet the tunes and bring the show every chance i get. old strings and forgotten words, but real time and lucky nights. to newport or victoria isle lets take this where it goes. intentions set onto digital waves, sent to people that can help, and friends overseas. this is what i came to the south for. this is when we go.

don't forget rye bar sept. 18th FRIDAY
efren, Animals that will KILL Yer ASS, and besides Daniel..........heard.

when you gonna do it.

i watched the phone.
I refresh the page.
i wait for the signal.
when i restrain myself from packing up the guitar and going, I don't know what lies out on the path of musical sufficiency. I could lay it all out there and go and hope for the fulfillment on many levels needed to sustain. Want foreign lands and a big time band...
but do i? where does this music lead. i want to play the right shows, see the right bills, do the right thing, tread litely... how and what do i need to find the answer... jump? or plot carefully and deliberately? find the yes. ugh. work terms. i am throwing the vision of help and assistance from the right people to make this what it can be. what that is is still being established and will just find its way on its own terms. i don't write music to fulfill a genre. i don't know where my sound comes from. i just feel the stories and write the music. do i go folk, rock, shoegazer, pop, indie, americana, or just do what i do...

efren will fill the path it follows but don't expect anything, and you may get what you needed.

facebook convo, thanks...

Dave Sturgis, from TT Mahoney and the Standard Eight
Congrats to "Efren" on an outstanding debut. In a town flush with talented songwriters and performers the ones that stand out really mean something. With a simple trap set, a double bass, two acoustic guitars, and some slick harmonies this group with these songs is going to make Athens step back and listen to their refreshing blend of haunted South storytelling and moody poetry.
