Tell me something about yourself
"Clouds & Satellites is a band that has four songwriters with varying influences. However, we have a healthy respect and appreciation of each others styles. Those influences are tied together in one way or another. So, that allows any song that person or co-writer feels strong enough about to bring to the band. It's freaking exciting and creative to say the least. Never a dull moment. It seems like nearly every rehearsal one or more of us has new songs to introduce or work on. Like Matt said a few months ago. 'We're either the most creative band or the one with the shortest attention span....' Ho ho!"
Tell me something about this song
"This is a song that just came out. Simple and quick. A few adult pops into an evening while playing my guitar I was mindlessly strumming and thinking about something else and just started singing along. It felt like here we go. This is something. Quickly stopped and hit record so I wouldn't lose what was starting. I mention this because in the rush of creating a new song I'm more likely to let my feelings go and do something I wouldn't otherwise do. For example, the outro of this song uses the chorus chords and has a time or tempo change not sure which or maybe neither. It's a different feeling for sure while using different lyrical phrasing as well. It's much less likely to happen, be remembered or even noticed if I continue to work on it that night or later if I don't hit record. Plus the words or phrases that come out freely can be a pleasant surprise. It's easy to get melody and lyric lock after that."
