Driving and then driving some more. We eventually find solace in the hotel lobby where we are, kindly, allowed to set up a semi-acoustic rehearsal session late in the evening. Thank you to the sweet woman at the front desk. Jameson in a paper cup, we dive in to some new songs that we aim to get solid on this brief series of concerts. A young man eventually introduces himself. He's been digging the sounds coming from this ragtag trio of musicians near the lobby windows gently bringing to life new music after two days numbed by the white lines slipping by under the nose of the truck. Turns out this young man is from Charlotte, NC... naturally; one of our most favorite cities to perform in. The audiences there ever enthusiastic, so kind, so in to the music. We'll see you this fall, I say to him, now a couple of states away from both of our home towns. The road, it's unexpectedly cool like that just when you need it to be.
