LYRICS:

 

Lighthouse Inn
Remember when
We called it home
All December long
Highs and lows
The tide she goes
With the winter wind
To be back again

 

Sandy feet
Sandy sheets
I can hear you laugh
I remember that

 

At the Lighthouse Inn
Do you remember when?  
I’d whisper something sweet
Make you something warm to eat
Right in our bed
You’d massage my head    
Knowing you were mine
I want that feeling all the time

 

Polar dives
Bright blue eyes
Reflect the sun
I’m the lucky one

 

At the Lighthouse Inn
Do you remember when?
I’d whisper something sweet
Make you something warm to eat
Right in our bed
You’d massage my head
Back when you were mine
I want that feeling all the time

 

It’s funny how the time goes by
Still feel you by my side
The warm warm dinners
And afternoon rides
The winters still feel like home
Even now that I’m on my own
Please come home

 

To the Lighthouse Inn
Do you remember when?
I’d whisper something sweet
Make you something warm to eat
Right in our bed
You’d massage my head
Back when you were mine
I miss that feeling all the time

 

 

Discuss your existence as a musician.
Becoming a musician came pretty naturally. Not saying I’m the best out there, but the lifestyle and everything that comes with it just feels right. There’s nothing I’d rather do.

 

Go into details on the changes in your life for choosing music as a career.
Being a musician, each day is kind of a mystery. Some opportunities just come out of nowhere, and you have to make a quick decision. This doesn’t bode well for relationships and living situations, but it’s worth it in the end – most times.

 

Tell us the benefits and drawbacks of choosing music as a career.
Being able to play music for a career is a dream. I can’t think of anything that would make me happier than being able to perform for people, then in my “off time,” write songs. It’s wonderful. As for the negative side, well, it’s pretty hard to have a “normal” life sometimes. Relationships don’t tend to last; which is what it is. There’s a lot to take on if you choose to date a musician. Travel, late nights, odd schedules… It can be a lot.

 

Elaborate on the storyline of this song.
The song was inspired by a previous relationship I was in some time ago. While the setting of the song may be a tiny bit falsified, most details were real moments I had experienced with a wonderful girl.

 

Let us know the greatest moment of your music career.
Over quarantine, I lucked out and connected with some beautiful people/musicians. These people have pushed me to become a better musician each and every day. Sometimes things happen for a reason, and meeting them was one of the best things that could have happened to me.

 

Discuss your experience pertaining to live performances, gigs, shows, and tours.
My first show was back when I was nineteen years old. It was terrifying. I have been fortunate in the years since; playing all over the Northeast region of the US. For five months back in 2019 I performed for Royal Caribbean on cruise ships in the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, and Mexico. With each year of experience, I find myself learning fun ways to improve my performance as a musician, but also as an entertainer.

 

Discuss the changes in your life as an artist.
Music has brought me to places I never dreamed I’d be. Both physically, and in me as a person… With each place I visit, gig I play, or song I hear, I notice myself changing. Almost, as if, I’m unlocking a new door each time.

 

State the names of the most important people that boosted your music career and how you met them.
The Retreaters. A group of musician friends that have pushed me far beyond what I thought was capable as a human and musician. We all met more or less via a virtual open mic during quarantine. The rest is history. Ross Leadbeater and Amber Cole. Two musicians, I had met while performing on cruise ships. We had countless late-night talks and jams. I love them both dearly.

 

Explain what you have in mind before considering music as a career.
Had thoughts of becoming a firefighter, but music plucked me away at the last second…

 

Name the artists that have influenced the world.
John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and Gregory Alan Isakov.

 

Discuss your moment of rejection as a musician/artist and how you are able to cope and move on with your career.
Rejection is hard for all of us. I used to let rejection get the best of me, but you can let that eat you alive or you can take it for what it is and learn from it. I choose the latter.

 

Tell us the most negative comment you have ever received.
Those don’t stay in my head for too long.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.
“Lighthouse Inn” is the name of a hotel on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA. In the winter of 2020, I took a day trip and stumbled upon the hotel. Ended up taking photos of what I thought would be the cover art, but went a different route. Regardless, the photographs captured everything that is beautiful about the hotel and the surrounding area. I tried to capture that myself in the track.
