We’re moving into December, so I’m looking back at November and dreaming into the new month.
I've been dreaming about L.A. since around about middle school, and Tracy, who has been several times to record music, already knew he loved it there.
When we started planning our trip, we decided to stay in Laurel Canyon. The history of this area, the people who lived here, the music that was made, the way culture and history was informed by it - that's what drew us in and I'm so glad we chose the Canyon as our home base. Nothing could have been more perfect for us.
It's a snow day and instead of baking something (look, let's be honest, I'm not going to rule it out), I'm talking in the studio.
In this video - to which I've applied a warm vintage filter for maximum watchability - I'm explaining what I mean by Prayer Painting and Vision Painting and sharing a bit about that process; talking about an upcoming trip (Hey, West Coast, I'm looking at you!); and sharing a recent realization about how I've pretty much been waiting my whole life for someday to happen.
