Played a house show for some family in Mesa, AZ, and decided on a whim to live-stream it on Periscope. I played five brand new songs from my upcoming album-in-progress and a few oldies. I’m going to do this more often (most likely from my much smaller Airstream home), so be sure to follow me on Twitter and/or Periscope to get in on the live action.

Watch (most of) the show here.

After quite a bit of time spent not writing, I managed to get productive and wrote three songs this October. Carrie shot a video of her favorite of the three, “fighting monsters,” on a cold fall day at Charlestown State Park, Indiana.

Lyrics:

don’t think you have to go down that road alone
someone is on your side
don’t wonder how you’ll do what you need to do
hope is endless as the sky

but it’s long and twisted, the path that you’re headed
there’s no way to get through but to go through it
if you’re fighting a monster, you know how that goes
there’s no way to get through but to destroy it

wind blows cold and leaves rattle, fall on the roof
sirens whine, don’t see the lights
when you do what you need to do you’ll see
hope as endless as the sky

it’s long and twisted, the path that you’re headed
there’s no way to get through but to go through it
if you’re fighting a monster, you know how that goes (2x)
there’s no way to get through but to destroy it (2x)

Zach sings, plays guitar and drums at the dining room table in his travel trailer.

First full band (guitar, drums, keyboard, and loop pedal) practice session in the new place was a success! Had to block the door for a little while, but I kept the volume down so I think Carrie and the dogs were okay with it. Preparing for my first Connecticut show at Molten Java in Bethel this Wednesday.
