Strong as an Oak - George Watsky
I’m really feeling this track right now. My current situation is similar with my lack of job and student loans piling up. But I’m also in a very good place. Grad school has been a lot of fun so far the people I’ve met through my program are all pretty awesome. I’ve worried a lot about where I am in my life and where I feel I should be. Stress and anxiety has gotten the best of me many times before and has bumped me off a course I didn’t know I was on. It took me a while to realize that, as long as I’m working towards something I’m passionate about, my life will work itself out. The goal is not to micromanage life but to see the big picture and focus on that!
I’ve had the opportunity to hang out with George Watsky a few times over the years and I’ve seen his career go from a dream with a few college friends into a touring powerhouse. He did it his way and it pretty inspiring to see that transformation….even from afar.
Watsky’s new full length album “Cardboard Castles” is coming out next month. It was mixed and engineered by my very talented friend Nils Montan. I’m extremely excited about the new album and even more excited about the supporting tour!
Watsky and talented friends Dumbfounded will roll into Seattle on April 23 @ The Crocodile.
