The venue had bare bricks, my exhales were turning to mist and I found myself keeping my jacket on. The band appeared and played distorted blues rock. The energy of the room was electric and the speakers rumbled. The show ended, the room filled with chatter and I was overcome with awe. I left the venue with a terrible migraine and the following day Smokin’ Vinyl was born.
I became obsessed with the Rolling Stones and Muddy Waters. I listened to a lot of southern and classic rock, and I found myself absorbed into a community. Metal entered my spectrum and I rediscovered my true love of grunge. Creativity, inspiration and hard work have pushed me to pursue my passion. It’s not far off now, as I ride each soundwave, I learn something new with each experience. Everything new that I learn I use to push myself forward. As I venture deeper into my mind, and this music blog, I realise this is only the beginning.
