good things...

are comin'. =D i feel it.

but theres a storm happening tonight and early tomorrow.. a big snow storm.. we're supposed to get like 6-12 inches. crazy!!!

anyway, i joined a stage performance class today... and it was awesome. its taught by Livingston Taylor... and he's James Taylor's brother. crazy right?! he sings almost just like him, and he's the most interesting character i've met here at Berklee. it's ridiculous. his teaching method is awesome. he tells awesome stories, and just interacts with us in a unique way its so dope. im very excited. that was from 2-4.

4-6 is my bob marley ensemble. and i got lots of work to do. hahah. i mean i listen to bob marley a lot but always just in a playlist and only the choruses stick in my head. so the melody of the verses are hard to absorb. especially bobs crazy melody lines. he's freakin genius... so im gonna need to step up my game. the life of Bob Marley is so interesting and inspiring... Matt Jenson, our teacher, spoke about his beginnings and his family and everything like that... Bob Marley was the man... he still is the man. cant wait to learn more from that class.

but foreals what im excited about is the band i put together to start playing shows with me. we already got a gig in new york on march 7th, and hopefully we'll have some more in Boston. shiori, noah, and bobby, and andrew rhim even tho he couldnt make it today, are all awesome. we jammed to showstopper, i just want you, starlit nights, and midKnight. i wish ya'll could hear how everythings turning out. im really excited. we just jammed out, the music spoke for itself, and we all were on the same page which is a very good thing. shiori, the drummer girl =], was super nice and HELLA good at feelin' the vibe i was just puttin out with my hands on the piano... noah, ive played with him before in a classic rock ensemble and he's just an exciting person to play with.. and bobby is one of my best friends out here in Boston... he's just the clown of the band who happens to play really good guitar. hahah.

watch out for good things from us!

oh! and i got a callback for Singer's Showcase.. again... so hopefully this time i actually make the show. that's on thursday, and also on thursday is Singer's Night (there is a difference) auditions.. and then after that is my first acoustic show out here in Boston! at Bill's Bar!!! busy day... but all about the MUSIC..

always about the MUSIC.
much love ya'll...

So you're taking your band to Featured Acoustic Playlist in San Diego on July 25th, yeah? [:

I'm excited for all the good things that has happened to you already, are occurring right now, and are in store for you in the future.

Hahahah why do I feel like that was an answer a political person would answer when being interviewed? Or something to be found in a Hallmark card?

Whatever, I mean it so it's definitely legit. [:

aj, when i grow up i wanna be just like you :] haha well only about the music part. i don't plan on being part of a band but it sure sounds fun when you talk about college and all you're doing is music music and more music!

that's what i'm going to do...
before i wasn't sure if i wanted to major in music because i was considering nursing. but now i know i want to do this partly because of you

:]

Hey AJ!
I'm new to your blog..but a long time fan of your music! =)

It's nice to see that although you seem to be famous throughout youtube and myspace, you are still a stressed out and busy college student like the rest of us! =)

Good luck on your call backs! You'll do amazing!

Oh, and enjoy the snow! We just got snow here yesterday (I got to the University of Maryland) and early classes got canceled this morning! It's great =D

Anyways, enjoy all your blessings this week!
