So… this was amazing. Sean stopped by Mule with that otherworldly voice of his and provided one of those moments we talk about for weeks. I’ll admit… I was a bit starstruck. Sean’s songs have been the soundtrack to a great many work days, glasses of whiskey, and reading through his lyrics have provided new perspectives. He came to know Mule by way of Jeffrey Foucault, and he also got one of his own. And then there he was, unloading his gear in our parking lot. When he was warming up and started singing -it’s hard to explain. It’s an instant. Making something that makes music and to hear music being made with it is an incredibly unique experience. All of the stories, the work, the effort, the learning, the trying of two people in their calling joining forces . It’s the furthest most point in their efforts, the “now”. Whether it’s Sean, Adele, Joey, Charlie, or Jeffrey (etc) there’s a switch that happens in that initial instant. “THIS is why we do this.” And then you sit back in that intense experience and understand. I’ll be starstuck every time.
