Although this song was written well before I was in a band, the feeling of togetherness from like minded musicians inspired this song. While I did play music with some people during my college experience, I didn’t find very many people who were looking to play the music I was planning, nor did I find many people interested in what I was writing.
After I was out of school and old enough to go to bars, I scoured open mics and found the camaraderie I had been missing out on. The Erie music scene was in a prime of singer songwriters and friendly collaborations. The early days of my open micing led to lasting friendships, local music idols and eventually the start of my own band.
