How I Found My Sweet Spot as a Musician

When I was a boy I loved magic. I learned to be a magician to perform tricks for kids.
I got a guitar for my 16th bday and music became my magic. I wrote songs and played at church. The song was sacred.

I went to college and got a job working at a computer.
At night I played music in coffee shops and bars but the music got lost, the words unheard.
As I was playing guitar by the creek one morning it hit me: have people gather there by the water when the weather is perfect for a gorgeous gig in this sweet spot.
So I did, and people gathered around the creek as the sun was setting at the magic hour and it was beautiful.

Now I’m on a mission to gather people down by the water when the weather is just right to share the magic of sweet songs and gorgeous natural spaces together.

  1. She’s a backup singer now! Just recorded her on the new album and am finally going to get her to sing with the band.

  2. Yeah man! Gonna keep refining this story for a while. I hope to have it in true cartoon-style frames shortly. Fancy that!

  3. Nice work and great story. We are up the road from you in Denton, TX. I’ve also been trying to think of some out-of-the-ordinary places for my band to perform. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
