Lately I feel as if I have been walking on this thin red string, not knowing weather I was going to be able to mentally get through the last two weeks, being back from China has been challenging. I think most people may think that creating and trying to nurture a band like The Red Paintings is an easy thing but it isn’t it’s a huge emotional roll-coaster ride and for me the only times I get to let it go is when I play shows, seriously kids it’s a huge head fuck at times especially when theres people ripping you off and trying to beat you down. Lucky for me im able to channel all the negatives as inspiration and write songs like “Walls” its my only therapy. For me as soon as the band starts creating colors together I find myself relaxed, it just feels like home for me now, in the early days of the band I use to always stare at the ground always to embarrassed to look at the souls in front of me. I use to think to myself I feel so stupid im releasing all my frustrations and pains and loves of my life to complete strangers, how weird they must think that I am. I still sometimes feel like that though these days. But now that I know many of you are actually listening and feeling myself and the amazing players in TRP I feel so at home. So thank you. If I hadn’t reached this point in my life today I don’t know if I would have kept pushing the ideas outside my bedroom and I would probably be living in Iceland by now. With out the amazing band that I have and there incredible talents then there is no way that I would have continued recording and touring live, when your hearing Wayne’s cello take over or Ellen’s violin in rain or in any song or josh’s amazing drums or Bo being Bo, my head falls out and watch’s from the side of the stage in AWE! As im sure you have already probably noticed. Take me away from this band and im sure you would agree that there is still nothing in Australia like these kids. We start recording ‘Walls’ tomorrow wish us luck, on the re-birth of Christ. From what ive read Jesus was such a cool soul I wish I could have met him in person. Its a sad thing that he had to endure the things he went through. Happy Easter and thank you so much for standing by us I hope we can give you many good times and smiles in return. I love you so much!
