What Happens in Okoboji Stays In Okoboji

I started a new weekly release called TBT (throw back Thursdays) where I release a song from the Throw Back.  Last week was my first TBT and it was pretty fun! 

I decided to perform the TBT from the stage in Okaboji, IA.  Although, the sound in the video was rough the recording turned out pretty awesome!

It was pretty fun to pick a song and research it.  I chose Plush by Stone Temple Pilots.  This is a classic 90’s tune with an awesome nostalgic feel to it.

I prerecorded the song then sang it live on Facebook.  I would love to sing it live on all networks but I am not sure the easiest way to do that just yet.

The part that fascinated me was researching what influenced the lyrics.  Just in case you didn’t see my post on it:

TBT Acoustic Cover of Stone Temple Pilots. I am really diggin this tune lately. I like to play a live stream on Facebook with these old tunes and give away the pre-recording of it. Also give a little history of the song. According to www.songfacts.com “The lyrics were inspired, in part, by an unfortunate news story in Stone Temple Pilots’ hometown of San Diego, California about a missing young woman who was later discovered dead by local law enforcement (“And I feel, when the dogs begin to smell her…”).”

I think this pretty much sums up how most musicians write music.  Usually, inspired by a story or an emotion that than is translated to the guitar/instrument. 

From there a story is built into a song.  I loved singing this song and performing it even more.  This song is a free DOWNLOAD CLICK HERE

In other news, I had the opportunity to carry a showcase with the amazing Timothy Howe!  Tim is an amazing performer!  Follow him on Facebook just search timothyhowemusic.

After two shows and a few visits to NEW breweries we headed home to finish the week.  I topped the week off on a rainy patio in Hudson at The Smiling Moose.

Until Next week!
