Something’s missing.

It is awesome to finally have a band. I love when the ideas in my head combine with the ideas in the other band members’ heads. The music comes out so smooth and awesome sounding. The old songs sound good and the new songs sound even better because I can write them for a band instead of just writing for my voice and an acoustic guitar. Think vocal harmonies and solo sections. The only problem is that my lead guitar sounds like a 5 year old learning Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Why? Because something is still missing. I am not a lead guitarist. Somewhere in the world there is that perfect other band member just waiting for fate to bring us together. Violin, piano, lead guitar…something.

But the music does sound pretty great as it is. Ben DeCastro is playing drums for the band now. He also has another band called Smoke & Ginger. Ben understands the songs before I even play them. As you know, Conor Rochford plays bass in the band. But what I haven’t told you is that he also has another band called Hierarchy in which he is lead singer and bassist. One band practice we discovered that these guys can harmonize like a classic rock band, and now I set up microphones for all of us. I can’t help but smile when I hear “WHYYYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.”

Speaking of that song in particular, it will be debuting April 12 at the Mediator Stage in its acoustic form. Alex Agronick will be singing the back up vocals that night, and I will be singing them for his songs. More about that event here: Breaking All the Rules. You are welcome to RSPV on that page if you are thinking of coming. The song is called “I’m Alive”. It had a different name once upon a time, but it became pretty obvious that this name was more suitable. You’ll see.

I look forward to debuting the song with the full band and to debuting the band itself. We need a name. Tammy Laforest and the ____________. Any thoughts?
