one of my favorite songs to play live is “These Damn Feelings” because i love telling the story behind it at every show i do. but i always wanted to play this song with an ukulele and on Saturday, that became a reality. as a bonus, i also got to shoutout and lowkey roast my bro @nalumonphotography808 during that segment since that song was about him and he helped me write it so he made that moment extra special.

“2young” by Stop Light Observations
Originating from South Carolina, Stop Light Observations in is a great name for a band. There’s only so much time one really has while sitting at a red light. Most of the time, I’m thinking about how if I had just left the house a second earlier, I would’ve cruised through that yellow light. But sometimes it’s nice to just take a look around and take in the moment, as I think it’s important that we appreciate any remaining time that we do have. If we don’t, then we certainly wouldn’t have the same attitude as SLO's lead singer, William Blackburn, as he casually accepts the apocalypse in their latest release "2young".
It’s rare that I find a song where I both love the lyrics and also can’t resist jamming out. The libretto spins a yarn of the world’s end and, evidently, the main character’s thoughts and feelings on the matter. Aside from the fun fable, the flow of the words in sync with the snare leaves you no choice but to nod up, down, and all around -- until we’re met with the shrill reminder that “we’re all about to die.”
Well, what should we do if we’re all about to die? Rock the fuck out but of course. John Keith "Cubby" Culbreth on the keys and Louis Duffie on the guitar riff and rip like there’s actually no tomorrow. Throughout, SLO does an ample job of controlling the oscillating amplitude and just when you think the song (and the world) is nearing its final moments, they wind it back up and gift you the guitar solo that you didn't know you needed, but did all along. This one's an automatic double-play in my book.
TLDR: introspective band name, enticing lyrics, and overall a very solid ditty.

Surprise :) I recorded an acoustic version of Dixon with @chrissyjohnson17 on cello, and it is out right this moment for you all to hear.
I designed the artwork to pair with ‘Kaye’ because my Grandma and Grandpa hugely shaped my life, and these songs are meant to be together. So please give this song some love, add it to playlists and share it with your world. ❤️
