Ok. For those of you following along, here is round two of December thankfulness.
Last post I gave a little tidbit and some context and shared who I was most grateful for. My wife. Today I wanted to show some love for my manager Andrew Jones.
As an northwest US artist, it has made absolutely no sense that I would have a manager based in Canada. With our networks combined I think we have reached more land mass and less people than most other touring bands. But here is the thing, that guy has always believed in me and my music. So much so that his sweet family has sacrificed time and resource and many things of which I am sure I don’t know so that he could help support my career. He is a hard working incredibly kind hearted family man. One of these days I’ve got to get his family to Montana for a summer.
Because I am a stubborn idealist, I’ve done a lot of things that don’t make sense in the music business; but I’ve believed eventually they would. There are days when I wrestle the ol’ cynic in me, who can only see the things that I have done wrong or plans I’ve sabotaged. But I am not really concerned with any of that as long as I have people that believe in me and care for me. Andrew and ‘his wife Sarah’ are two people that I admire and am very grateful for.
I don’t know what the future holds, but I am glad that even over long distance I can call these two friends.
