Okay, so here we go.

Meanwhile, I was keeping up a friendly harassment of Rick, asking what are we doing all this recording for if we don't have a band to do anything with it all when we're done? We need a band, Rick. Rick, can I please have a band? Rick is a very patient man. And then I met Josh.



About a year ago, Rick and I had the bright idea to try to make good quality recordings of our original songs. There was no band—just Rick and me and a very chilly basement. We started on this project not knowing too much about what we were doing, but plugged away, figuring things out and getting better as we went along.


Rick and Terrell and I had all been in a previous band together, but that band fell apart. We had asked Terrell to come visit the chilly basement and put down bass tracks on this project that Rick and I were working on. Terrell, ever obliging did so, and somewhere during the process let us know that he wanted to keep playing with us.

It is true that if you want to meet musicians all you have to do is walk around holding an instrument. It works like a charm. I happened into the store where Josh works, carrying my fiddle, and Josh, who would probably like to know everything there is to know about every instrument, asked me what kind of fiddle I had. I answered and stepped out the door and immediately thought, “wait a minute,” and stepped back in. It turned out that Josh played the mandolin, we exchanged information, and the rest is history in the making. At least, I hope so.
