i'm not making the trek this year, but Garth will be there holding it down. hope y'all have a blast this weekend & eat a pasty for me. big love to the U.P. crew 🧡
here's a pic from the very 1st Thundersnow way back in 2013:
Several years back, our good friend Maurice told us about a weekly songwriting/ recording challenge he had been participating in called Weekly Beats. This is Emily's 6th year participating (!), and after seeing/hearing what a life-changing practice it has been for Em/ Maurice/ so many others, I decided to give it a go this year. I've got some loose ideas on how i want to approach it, but mostly just going to follow the inspiration & (try to) keep it simple so i don't burn myself out. 🕊
I made a slow-mo video of me preparing & tracking the first song and i'll share that below. The video description also includes some gear/ process details if any of you fellow nerds are interested. I do want to shout out this beautiful guitar — a Century Guitars "Clydesdale" made by the guitar boss Chris Jury. This was an early xmas gift and i am absolutely in LOVE with this guitar.
*I'm planning to post a simple video each week to document the process, so feel free to follow my jwh youtube page if that's something that interests you. Ok!
Thank you for listening and caring about us and the music we make. It was very meaningful to be able to play a few shows this year and to continue to share these songs with you.
We love you and will continue to love you. 🖤
ps: head HERE if you would like to read my note/ year-in-review, "2023: the year i was able to start listening to music again."
