Sometimes it is important to take a break. Over the past year, I feel like I have been running from town to town, state to state, and even country to country playing music and supporting the Buena Onda. The truth is I have loved every minute of it, but I also believe at some point you need to take a break and clear the mind.
Luckily for me, one of the coolest dudes I know happens to live in Etel, France. Mickaël and I met in El tunco, El Salvador a few years ago and we have stayed in touch since, always planning to meet for a surf trip "one day." That day finally came, when I decided to go to France on a surf trip. I decided I would be searching for shows and gigs if it was possible, but this week would be about surfing and writing as much good music as I could. I can tell you now it was a complete success. Not only were the waves pumping, but there was no wind and Mickael knew where to find all the firing spots.
For five days, I did nothing but eat, sleep, write, and surf. It was amazing, just like our days in El Salvador. All that is left to do is get this new material into the studio. You may be hearing some french on my upcoming album too!
