r&r diary – “Make or Break,” or “Break & Make” – 01.04.15

carla & jimmy at the tap2It’s only the 4th day of this very improbable new year, and it already feels like we’ve packed in a lifetime of experiences. So I guess this is gonna be a thrilling, bumpy ride. Cool.

The 2nd day of the new year we did our show at the Red Line Tap. The accompanying photo is the whitewolfsonicprincess songwriting team, pre-show.  Our set felt good, and it was all a blur at the same time. I really felt the power of our new lineup with drums and additional percussion backing our songs. It’s all about rhythm!

Then on the 3rd day of the new year, we were back in the studio working with our drummer, Rich, visiting from Tokyo, Japan. He laid down some over-dubs on two tracks. I was a little apprehensive, wondering how it would all play out, but it turned out to be a very rewarding and inspiring afternoon.

Two projects are starting to emerge, “The Shadow of the Marigolds,” and “Magnificent Bird.” New sounds, lots of intriguing directions. I guess we’ll see how it rolls out in the next few months. I’ve been thinking that 2015 will be a “make or break,” or “make and break” year. I expect to create and destroy, and destroy and create lots of new work. And embrace the new and let go of the old. Hope so. – Jammer
