Hyper Speed Dreams

Hyper Speed Dreams

Good morning from the kitchen. I’m drinking my coffee and reflecting on the month of March which blew by hyper fast. The dreams I had been waiting for arrived and left with hyper speed.

I’m finally awake and doing brief reflection on what was a crazy month of March for me.

The One More Fire Tour took me from Vancouver Island to Saskatchewan & back.  I tested out several new songs that will ultimately end up on my full album once it’s completed this August.  I caught up with old friends that I missed so much.  I came home a better version of myself than when I left.

There’s an intention to be more present & in the moment these days.  I’m appreciating life a little more.  I didn’t so much enjoy my 40th & 41st years on the planet, but 42 seems to be about evening the score.  It’s about comebacks.  I was down in the bottom of the ninth, but my team’s resilient.

Hyper speed performances in March.

Ryan McMahon performing night after night as his dreams of connecting with fans blew by with hyper speed in the month of March.

From Port Alberni to Swift Current & back to wrap in Duncan & Nanaimo… It was 21 shows in a month.  Add to that a 10 hour recording session & eight more hours of rehearsing with the boys in the band, and my voice went for a wild ride.  Each night, I wondered if it was gonna give out, but it never did.  My happiness to just be onstage, coupled with the energy of the live audience coming back at me was more than enough to carry me through.

To end the tour with loud, raucous full-band shows was just the ticket.  Big thanks to Shane, Lance & Matthew for coming into them Uber-prepared and ready to roll.  I love you guys.

So, about the studio and another dream moving forward at hyper speed… I tracked 2 more songs with the dynamic production duo known as Cross Parallel (Jordan Pritchett & Danielle Marie King).

We’ll be following up ‘One More Fire’ with ‘Lost & Found’ & ‘A Rock & A Roll’… two songs about temporarily missing opportunities but realizing in time to capitalize on a beautiful life.  That just might be the theme of this record, and my life, once it’s all said & done.  We’ll see.  There are more songs to write, and there’s more living to do.

March felt like it whipped by at hyper speed with the dreams I had been thinking about for so long, two years in fact, coming to fruition.
